Grade II Listed Equestrian, Rednal
If you are both a horse loving kind of person and a lover of canals this beautiful Grade II Listed house will bowl you over. The house is approached across a traditional canal bridge and through a gated entrance passing one neighbouring property leading to a large gravel parking and turning area. The plot and its extensive equestrian facilities comprise 5.5 acres of land in total. There is a small garden to the front of the house, framed by mature shrubs and hedges with a with a brick pathway and wall overlooking the Montgomery Canal and tow path, and a decked area for relaxing. To the rear the graveled access area leads to a car port, store, and barn with workshop. There is a sunken lawn with part brick walls and a raised lawn with a number of mature shrubs and stunning views over the main paddock, with its stables, tack room and training ring. Two further paddocks are accessed along a short track and are bordered by the Montgomery Canal. All three paddocks are enclosed with stock fencing with mature hedges and water troughs. The third paddock has a field shelter. The minor railway which separates the property from its second and third paddocks is completely hidden by mature trees, so it is a small price to pay for this fabulous house and location.
The house dates from the 1660s and retains a great deal of period charm, including timber and exposed brickwork on the internal walls, fabulous beamed ceilings in the lounge and a huge inglenook fireplace in the dining room with a log burner. A tasteful extension was added to the rear of the house in 2000 creating a light and spacious farmhouse kitchen. The lounge has a double glazed window to the front, oak laminate flooring, and a character beamed divider separates it from the dining room. The dining room has double glazed windows to front and rear and an external doorway to the front of the house. Stairs from the lounge lead to the characterful landing, three well proportioned bedrooms and a superb bathroom. There is a third reception room off the lounge with double glazed windows and exposed timber flooring, and we feel that this room, together with the large utility room and downstairs shower room, might be suitable for conversion into a self contained annexe. Alternatively, in 2009 planning permission was granted for the erection of a sympathetic open-plan one bedroom annex to replace the carport. This permission has now lapsed, however further details and plans can be viewed on Shropshire Council website or in the Agent’s office.
