Tenure: Freehold

Little Meadow Barn enjoys the most stunning and far reaching views across the Shropshire and Staffordshire countryside.  This charming, substantially extended and beautifully presented four bedroom detached family home, sits in the rural hamlet of Sutton, in approximately two acres of grounds.

The property offers exceptionally well-appointed accommodation in an ‘L-shaped’ configuration, over two floors comprising a generous reception hall, spacious sitting room with vaulted ceiling, balcony and dining area off, a stylish, traditionally designed bespoke breakfast kitchen, utility, guest cloakroom and bedroom downstairs.  Two further en-suite bedrooms, an annexe offering a further en-suite bedroom, sitting room and kitchenette, plus a separate office/attic room complete the flexible accommodation.

Set back behind a sandstone wall, Little Meadow Barn sits on a generous plot, with walled gardens, vineyard, orchard, vegetable garden and paddock, as well as a useful stable outbuilding and far reaching open views across the surrounding countryside.  The property also has a large integral double garage and plenty of off road parking.

The hamlet of Sutton is rural, yet within just a few miles of the market town of Newport, with its shops, schools and amenities.  The village itself has a thriving public house, well renowned for its food.  The property is also located close to the A519, allowing easy access to Stafford and Telford, with their mainline railway stations and links to the M6 and M54. 

The accommodation offered is well proportioned, having been finished to a very high standard, originally being converted from a nineteenth century agricultural barn of sustainable brick and tiled construction into a dwelling house in 2002, further extended in 2004/2005.  Many of the original features of the barn have been retained, which together with the tasteful conversion has resulted in a most attractive and unique property.  An internal inspection is highly recommended.  In more detail the property comprises:
