AN OPPORTUNITY TO MODERNISE AN OLD VICARAGE WITH HISTORIC CHARM AND ENDLESS POTENTIAL

Location

Stottesdon is a quiet village within Shropshire but close to the
Worcestershire border, with a village pub, church, doctor’s surgery, primary school with current “Outstanding” Ofsted report, and an array of country sports, particularly equestrian facilities, all within easy walking distance. Further amenities can be found in the locality, particularly so the historic towns of Bridgnorth and Cleobury Mortimer. Set in beautiful countryside, the village is conveniently close to Ludlow, the Clee Hills, Church Stretton and Malvern.

The area is well serviced for both state and independent schools such as Abberley Hall, Shrewsbury School, Malvern College and Wolverhampton Grammar School.

Description

Bridgnorth 9 miles, Kidderminster 12 miles, Telford 21 miles,
Shrewsbury 27 miles, Wolverhampton 23 miles, Birmingham 31 miles (All mileages are approximate).

Description
The Old Vicarage, Stottesdon, was built in the 1840s and continued to be run as a vicarage until 1964. The house is set in a private situation within its own 2 acres of gardens and grounds in a lovely village setting adjacent to the church.

It is approached by a sweeping drive which curves round the front of the house to a large car parking area. It should be noted that there is a secondary entrance to the rear of the property.

The Vendors, who live in the property, also run an outdoor activity centre in the property, which will be relocated. The Old Vicarage offers great flexibility either as a wonderful family
home or part to be used for business purposes or the creation of a second dwelling within the annexe.

A state of the art biomass heating system has been installed with 2 biomass boilers. This heats the main house and also generates an RHI tariff of £1,900 a quarter, which runs until June 2022.

It should be noted that a number of the timber buildings currently used by the outdoor activity centre will be relocated prior to completion.

The Old Vicarage is a classic Victorian old vicarage with lovely high ceilings and wonderfully light rooms. However, some buyers may wish to carry out some updating.

Large double doors lead into a formal reception room, currently used as an office, with a handsome turned oak staircase with a fine tall window leading to a galleried landing. The handsome drawing room is approached through double doors, with a large bay window and decorative plasterwork and a log burner in the fireplace. The well proportioned dining room overlooks the main garden.

To the rear is the kitchen, cloakroom, secondary staircase and conservatory with adjacent laundry area.

The first floor is approached via the grand staircase from the entrance hall, with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms on the first floor together with a further 3 bedrooms on the second floor.

The annexe can either be incorporated into the main body of the house or used separately either as guest accommodation or an office. This area includes a large hallway/porch, open living area, a bedroom with en suite facilities, and 3 further bedrooms above. On the ground floor is a shower block, currently used by the activity centre.

To the rear is a series of timber buildings providing mower and general storage. There is a bespoke biomass building containing the 2 boilers and a 10-tonne storage bin.

The house is set in just under 2 acres (1.9 acres) of gardens and grounds mainly down to grass flanked by mature trees, providing privacy and interest.


Acreage: 2 Acres
