The Woodlands, 21, Howle, Newport, Shropshire, TF10
Full Property Description:
Howle is a small hamlet standing amidst open Shropshire countryside and yet is only 6 miles from the historic market town of Newport with its comprehensive range of shopping and leisure facilities. Communications are excellent as the property is only approximately one mile from the A41 corridor facilitating excellent road links, making the M54 easily accessible. Shrewsbury, Telford and Birmingham are all, therefore, within easy reach. The area is particularly well served by schools in both sectors, and the property is within the catchment area for the Newport Grammar Schools.
The Woodlands is an exceptionally attractive detached country house of Victorian origins with a substantial later extension. The house now provides charming accommodation of excellent proportions and planning permission for this unlisted property was previously granted for a substantial two storey extension to the rear (now lapsed), and conversion of the double garage to an annexe (also now lapsed). Potential therefore exists for further works of extensions should buyers so wish, subject to gaining all of the usual and necessary consents. The house has been well-maintained over the years and has a delightful and welcoming feel and enjoys a south westerly aspect to the front. The property benefits from oil fired central heating and many of the windows have recently been replaced with high grade, double glazed bespoke units.
One of the principal attractions of the property is the superb plot extending to approximately 1 acre split between an impressive well stocked mature garden and a small paddock with large outbuildings. The property currently has equestrian use and the sellers have rented an adjoining paddock for many years of approximately 1.5 acres in total and it is possible that this arrangement could be continued by the new owners, subject to agreeing terms with the landowner.
A panelled and double glazed bespoke oak front door opens into the HALL with windows to either side, tiled floor and wall mounted cupboard containing electric meter and recently updated fuse box. The DINING ROOM has a secondary glazed sash window to the front elevation, ceiling coving and a door to the fine DRAWING ROOM which is a light and spacious room of considerable appeal having a triple aspect with recently replaced double glazed windows to both the front and side elevations together with sliding double glazed patio doors to the rear garden. A cast iron Clearview wood burning stove stands on a quarry tiled hearth with fireplace behind, wiring for wall lights and ceiling coving. The BREAKFAST KITCHEN has a full range of wall and base mounted cupboards, a double oven oil fired Aga, a Siemens four ring electric hob and Bosch double electric oven, plumbing for a dishwasher, a stainless steel double sink unit, a secondary glazed sash window to the front and a further secondary glazed side window, tiled floor, part tiled walls, integrated ceiling lighting and a door to the REAR HALL with access to an under stairs cupboard, which leads to the UTILITY/TACK ROOM with fitted cupboards and work tops, and a panelled and glazed external door, giving access to the LAUNDRY with plumbing for a washing machine, period Belfast sink, brick flooring and cold settle. There is a BATHROOM with a panelled bath, WC and vanity unit with wash basin and cupboard beneath, two windows, airing cupboard with slatted shelving and a mains pressure hot water cylinder fed by a floor mounted Potterton oil fired central heating boiler.
A staircase from the hall rises to the first floor landing with two secondary glazed windows overlooking the rear gardens, picture rail, an airing cupboard and access to the mainly boarded loft space with electric light via a sliding ladder. BEDROOM ONE is a good double room in size with a sash window to the front, a wide bank of bespoke solid pine wardrobes, picture rail, and a walk in box room with sash window to the front, fitted wall shelving, and loft access. BEDROOM TWO is a double room with a sash window to the front, a fitted wardrobe and knee hole dressing table with chest of four drawers to one side and fitted display shelving above and picture rail. BEDROOM THREE is also a good room in size with a recently fitted double glazed window to the front and BEDROOM FOUR is a single room with a side window and built in double wardrobe. The BATHROOM has a suite of authentic period character with a free standing cast iron roll top bath with ball and claw feet, washstand with basin, WC and a separate fully tiled corner shower, two recently fitted double glazed windows to the rear and integrated ceiling lighting.
A wooden gate from the lane opens onto a gravelled path with box hedging to either side leading to the front door. The house stands behind well laid out beds with cottage character intercepted with gravel paths, and to the side of the property a five bar wooden gate opens onto an ample area for parking. There is a detached brick and tile DOUBLE GARAGE with custom made hardwood doors, electric light and power, side access door and two windows to the rear elevation. The principal gardens lie to the side and rear of the property with lawns, a double herbaceous border, woodland garden, and a character quarry tiled terrace overlooking the beautifully diverse and mature rear shrub borders set against a fine woodland backdrop. Adjoining the property is a STABLE with two stalls and electric light currently used as a log store. To the northern side of the drive is a further area of garden which is principally laid over to vegetable plots with a small paddock beyond with post and rail fencing and an access gate to the lane. Adjoining the paddock are two large barns which are each split into three 10 feet bays, one with two large stables and the other a storage barn, with water supply and electrical fittings.
There is a total area of approximately 1 acre.
