Full description


Set in the idyllic Staffordshire village of Hamstall Ridware, this beautiful detached family home will capture the hearts of all viewers. Located in the centre of the village, first impressions are excellent as the property is set back from Blithbury Road behind a lovely front garden which includes a well in the centre of the lawn. Beside the garden is the driveway which is large enough for at least two cars and precedes a marvellous double garage. The garage door is a unique original feature as the whole door is on rails that slide round to the right, with a single door opening when the whole door is closed.

Taking the fabulous large wooden double doors into the home, viewers will find themselves in the porch which is a generous area for removing coats and shoes. There is a door to the left which provides entry to the welcome guest wc and large glazed double doors lead into the first reception room, the dining room. The dining room, like every other room, has a delightful large window to provide plenty of natural light. Also found in this room is the staircase to the first floor with storage cupboard behind and a second storage cupboard near to the porch. Furthermore, viewers will love the wooden flooring and the bi-folding doors leading through to a fantastic lounge space.

The lounge has a lovely plush carpet, but perhaps more noticeable is the grand log burner fireplace that is sunk into the wall thanks to an external chimney breast. There is also a bay window to the front and French doors that lead out to the rear garden. A door from the rear of the dining room leads into a gorgeous kitchen that has a lovely cottage feel to it. The flooring features the original patterned quarry tiles which perfectly compliment the cream coloured units and stylish dark granite work surfaces. Integrated appliances include dishwasher, fridge-freezer, electric oven and grill and a four-ring gas hob with cookerhood fan. A further door leads into the double garage.

Moving upstairs, viewers will note a continuation of the plush carpet up the staircase and throughout the first floor (except shower room). From the lovely long landing with sloped ceiling are doors leading off to all three double bedrooms and the family shower room. There is a window from the landing that looks out over the countryside to the rear, from which the ‘countryside views’ photo is taken. Just past this window is the doorway through to the master bedroom which is a fantastic sized bedroom that includes a bay window to both the front and rear and three built in wardrobes, two of which making excellent use of the eaves.

Bedroom two is at the opposite end of the landing with bay window and double wardrobes, again making use of the eaves; a theme that also continues into bedroom three. On the photos, viewers will note that bedroom three is currently utilised as a home office but is easily large enough to be a double bedroom. Finally for the interior is the master shower room. The owners made a great decision in removing the bath and utilise the space for a double shower cubicle, but this also proves that those preferring a good soak do have the option of changing it back. Furthermore, the bay window in this room is well designed to house the wash hand basin.

Finishing outside to the rear, this property has a sensational rear garden with many redeeming features. There is access to the garden from the front of the house along the right side of the building to the rear garden aswell as exits from the lounge French doors and a side door from the garage. The garden begins with a patio before leading to the large lawn which covers the majority of this magnificent space. The lawn is framed by a gravel border which features shrubs and flowers before continuing onto a large patio space at the bottom of the garden where there a wooden fence separating the garden from the farmer’s field to the rear – all in all making this the perfect place for both chilling after a long day or entertaining those unforgettable family events.



Although the village of Hamstall Ridware is a hidden rural Staffordshire gem, commuting is pain free as the property is around 10-15 minutes from the A38 at Alrewas or Fradley making journeys to Lichfield, Burton and Birmingham relatively straight-forward. Travelling through the local village of Armitage leads towards Rugeley and Stafford (A51) whereas Uttoxeter can be reached by taking rural routes to the north.

Lichfield Trent Valley Railway Station is roughly a 20 minute drive and offers services to Birmingham New Street aswell as London. There is also Rugeley Trent Valley Railway Station located just off the A51, which also offers a route to Birmingham via Walsall & Cannock.


According to the Staffordshore Schools website, the catchment secondary school for this home is The Hart School in Rugeley (4.7 miles away) which holds a Good (2) rating from Ofsted. John Taylor High School is the next nearest secondary school located 5.1 miles away in Barton under Needwood and holds an Outstanding (1) Ofsted school but, although we have researched this information, we recommend that parents check with the local authority before confirming school catchment. Furthermore, the nearest primary school is the Good (2) rated Henry Chadwick Primary School in nearby Hill Ridware.

In the village, a short walk from this home, is the Shoulder Of Mutton Inn which is a delightful public house that includes a restaurant. For those everyday essentials, the village of Kings Bromley has a Co-operative convenience store which is open long hours and is around a 5 – 10 minute drive away. Nearby villages are also handy for amenities as Handsacre has a Fish & Chip shop and Chinese takeaway, Hill Ridware also has a Chinese takeaway and Armitage having a pharmacy and family butchers amongst other businesses. For supermarkets, the new owners have the choice of large stores in both Lichfield & Rugeley.

In the village there is access to stables and livery for horse owners. Keen sportspersons will appreciate Lichfield Golf & Country Club (formerly Seedy Mill) offers a Health club membership and is around a 10 minute drive towards Lichfield, beyond Handsacre. Those seeking a more scenic alternative will look toward beyond Rugeley to Cannock Chase which is excellent for running, walking and cycling as well as horse riding.
