DESCRIPTION

Halls are delighted with instructions to offer The Slades in Haughton near West Felton, for sale by private treaty.

The Slades is a superbly situated period detached country house of great character in a super rural location, with lovely surrounding gardens, self-contained 3 bed Annexe, excellent general purpose and equestrian outbuildings and land, extending, in all, to approximately 6.2 Acres, or thereabouts.

The deceptively spacious and interesting internal accommodation currently comprises a ground floor Reception Hall, Library, Lounge, Dining Room, Kitchen/Breakfast Room, Back Kitchen, Pantry, Utility Room, Inner Hall and Cloakroom, together with four first floor Bedrooms (Master and Bedroom 2 with Ensuite facilities) and a Family Bathroom. The first floor has two separate staircases enabling it to be used by two families, if required. The property has an oil fired central heating system, is double glazed throughout and is presented for sale with the fitted carpets included in the purchase price.

An unexpected feature of the property is the self-contained 3 bed ancillary accommodation, which is appointed to a high standard and is ideal for another member of the family or for renting out/holiday lets etc.

The extensive surrounding gardens are also worthy of note having been attractively landscaped to the front of the house with a paved patio terrace with ornamental pool, decking and hot tub (available by separate negotiation, if required), together with extensive lawns. The outbuildings should be noted by those with equestrian interests as there are four loose boxes, fodder room, tack room, hay storage areas and potential for expansion, if required.

The land is a major feature of the property and is retained within convenient sized enclosures of pasture, ideal for the grazing of all kinds of livestock, particularly horses. The property extends, in all, to approximately 6.2 Acres, or thereabouts.

The sale of The Slades provides a very unusual opportunity to purchase such a well situated and well appointed detached country house with super surrounding gardens, separate ancillary accommodation, equestrian buildings and land, in this unspoilt rural location. An inspection is highly recommended.

SITUATION

The property is situated in a superb unspoilt rural location in the heart of the noted North Shropshire countryside. Whilst enjoying this quiet and peaceful setting it is still within easy motoring distance of the local village of West Felton (2.5 miles) and the well known nearby North Shropshire towns of Ellesmere (6 miles) and Oswestry (6 miles), both of which, have an excellent range of local shopping, recreational and educational facilities. The larger county towns of Shrewsbury (16 miles) and Chester (30 miles) are also within easy motoring distance, both of which, have a more comprehensive range of amenities of all kinds.

DIRECTIONS

From West Felton proceed on School Lane, past the school and out of the village heading towards Grimpo. Turn right signposted 'Haughton' and continue on this lane and over a small bridge. Continue around the bend signposted 'Wykey', past a farm and at the junction, take the turning signposted 'Hens Parks'. The property will be found on your left hand side.
