A stunning contemporary property with wonderful views over open countryside


Willowmead is located in one of the most sought after areas in North Staffordshire and commands fantastic views over the surrounding rolling countryside. Shut Lane Head is found just off the A53 Whitmore Road and provides the setting for a variety of high quality residences.

It is conveniently situated for nearby Newcastle-under-Lyme, the M6 motorway and wider West Midlands’ conurbation, yet offers the opportunity for a fantastic semi-rural lifestyle.

The surrounding countryside offers many recreational opportunities, with a number of walks and rides nearby.

Trentham Park, the former seat of the Duke of Sutherland is situated on the edge of Stoke-on- Trent and contains exceptional historic gardens and extensive parkland landscaped by Capability Brown as well as many features of special interest.

King’s Wood and Hargreaves Wood, both ancient, seminatural woodlands are now classed as SSSIs as well as the diversity of habitats including various types of woodlands, heathland, farmland, fenland and parkland.

Newcastle-under-Lyme (3.7 miles) and Nantwich (17 miles) are both pretty market towns which have a wide range of independent shops and amenities, whilst nearby Stoke-on-Trent (6 miles) and the county town of Stafford (16 miles) have train stations. Birmingham, Manchester and Wilmslow are also within travelling distance.

There are a number of schools in the immediate area including Elmhurst, St Joseph's Preparatory School, Newcastle-under-Lyme School and St Dominic’s Priory School.


Willowmead is a most attractive contemporary house set in a fabulous and private situation with wonderful far-reaching views. The house is situated just off a secluded lane approached through electric security gates and sits in delightful gardens and grounds.

Willowmead is an extremely stylish, modern property laid largely to open plan. There is a substantial kitchen with a 3-door Aga, a sitting room, cloakroom, dining area, further sitting/family room and the main drawing room / reception room with a wood burner.

On the first floor are 4 bedrooms with 3 bathrooms, 2 of which are en suite, together with a gym which could provide a 5th bedroom if so required.

The garden is beautifully landscaped and largely laid to lawn with a good Astroturf tennis court. There is also a useful separate outbuilding.

PLEASE NOTE- Willowmead is actually on private drainage NOT mains.

Square Footage: 4,227 sq ft
