Well presented, modern, edge of village house with wonderful countryside views.


Moreton House is situated on the edge of the popular North Shropshire village of Prees, which provides day-to-day amenities including a nursery and primary school, village hall, convenience store, post office, garage, sports centre and medical practice which includes a dispensary. Prees is well situated for travel to Chester, Wrexham and Shrewsbury, with the A49, A41 and M6 providing excellent links to the Midlands and the North. Prees also has a railway station on the Crewe line which links through to Manchester in approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes.

The historic, county town of Shrewsbury is approximately 16 miles to the south and offers a wide range of independent and high street shops, restaurants and leisure facilities including Theatre Severn and Quarry Park, where there are a number of cultural events held throughout the year.

Shrewsbury also has a number of highly regarded schools, both within the state and private sectors.

Local airports include Manchester, Birmingham and Liverpool.


Moreton House was built to a very high standard by the current owners and completed around ten years ago. It is obvious that a great deal of thought and attention to detail has been given to produce a property which is perfect for today’s living. The House has two very different facades: the front has the feel of an older period property which is in keeping with the village, however, the rear of the property has a striking and contemporary feel.

Originally built on the vegetable garden of Morton Farm, the House is set back from the road and is approached via a gravelled driveway leading to the front of the property and a double garage to the side.

The accommodation incorporates under floor heating throughout the first two floors and has been well insulated throughout so that it is extremely energy efficient. The heating can also be zoned for additional efficiency. Solar panels have been fitted to the rear of the garage which also provides an income.

You enter the property into a welcoming reception hall with natural stone on the floor into the hallway.

Leading off are:

The formal living room which affords a feature fireplace with inset multi-fuel stove and has waxed engineered oak flooring to accommodate the under floor heating. Double doors allow light into the room and provide views over the garden and countryside beyond.

The generous, living kitchen has a wide selection of wall and base units with a granite work surface and incorporates a Rangemaster stove and an integrated Bosch dishwasher. A useful breakfast bar provides additional working and seating area for informal dining. Brushed marble flooring features throughout the kitchen and into the adjoining dining room which has views over the garden. Doors lead onto an outside dining and entertaining space. A utility room has room for a washing machine and tumble dryer and has a charming stable door leading out to the side of the property. It also incorporates a downstairs cloakroom fitted with a modern suite.

A room with views over the front is currently used as a study but has the
potential to become a downstairs bedroom for anyone with mobility issues as there is a cloakroom with a walk-in shower adjoining.

A bespoke oak staircase leads to the first floor and a landing area which is currently used as an entertaining/games area. A wall of glass with doors leading out onto a balcony area provides wonderful views over the surrounding countryside towards Cheshire and the current vendors have enjoyed watching the sunsets and changes in seasons from this vantage point.

The master bedroom suite leads from the entertaining area and has fitted wardrobes and a modern ensuite with both a walk in shower, his and her basins and a whirlpool bath. Three further double bedrooms share a well-appointed family bathroom on this floor.

A slightly smaller wooden staircase leads to the second floor which has two further bedrooms, although one is currently used as a music room and storage areas into the eaves.

Outside, the double garage has additional storage over and a ground floor bathroom. There is potential for this to be developed into secondary accommodation subject to the necessary planning and building regulations. The gardens have been landscaped to provide interest and has seating/entertaining areas to both the front of the house and the rear.

Square Footage: 2,722 sq ft



From Shrewsbury take the A49 (Whitchurch Road) and approximately one mile after passing through Prees Green, turn left into Prees. Following the road into the vilage, turn right at the cross roads into Church Street. Continue until you reach the War Memorial and turn left into Moreton Street. The property can be found nearly at the end of the village on the left hand side.
