About this property

  • Spring Hill is approached via a private tarmac drive way, which sweeps round to the house flanked by attractive rhododendrons and estate railings. The Regency façade is exquisitely handsome with a particularly attractive Regency veranda which is strewn with wonderful roses.

    Spring Hill has enviable far reaching views over the surrounding countryside as far as Caer Caradoc Hill, the Long Mynd and a wonderful vista of Pell Wall Hall in the mid distance.

    Spring Hill is entered via a pretty entrance hall with an attractive curved ceiling, striking Regency plaster cornice and a ceiling rose. Off the entrance hall is a wonderfully light drawing room with double aspect windows, one of which being an especially attractive bay window with seating overlooking the beautiful gardens and views beyond, a feature fireplace and Regency cornice. Off the hall is also a morning room with floor to ceiling sash window, complete with shutters, to enjoy the views and a feature fireplace. The dining room also enjoys stunning views of the Shropshire countryside along with part of the gardens and grounds.

    On the ground floor there is also an everyday sitting room with double aspect windows and a clear view stove, a good family kitchen with original quarry tiles, a Rangemaster with electric oven and gas hob and built in appliances, delightful garden room with French doors on to a courtyard, cloakroom and a smaller secondary kitchen which could have a multitude of uses and access to a large useful cellar.

    On the first floor there is a master bedroom suite which has double aspect windows, access on to the veranda and wonderful views. There are five further double bedrooms, one of which is en suite, all with far reaching views, a single bedroom which would be ideal to provide an en suite to the master bedroom, together with two further single bedrooms. There are two family bathrooms, a study and attic rooms which could provide further bedrooms and bathrooms.

    The gardens and grounds to Spring Hill are well established and designed to take in the wonderful views. There is a myriad of magical walkways which allow you to absorb the setting and sheer abundance of space.

    The garden to the front of the house is mainly laid to lawn with well stocked borders including a variety of plants and foxgloves. A stone Ha-ha provides a boundary to the paddocks, beyond which is access via a gate to the Dingle and small sandstone Quarry. From the Dingle a further gate leads to a walkway which provides access to further paddock land and two Barrow walks, over which Spring Hill has a right of way to access the town.

    A holly walk brings you back to a further paddock and the grass tennis court with high hedging and an orchard flanked by a high bamboo screen and mature beech hedge.

    To the rear of the property is a wonderful walled garden with separate beds including a fragrant rose garden, productive vegetable beds growing rhubarb, asparagus, raspberries, onions, to name a few, and a glass house which is currently growing fantastic table grapes. A wide, mature holly hedge with an archway concealed.

    There is a part cobbled courtyard, which may be accessed via the gardens or from the main house and includes the original coach house with loft space above, an old tack room and The School House which has been converted into a studio/library and has underfloor heating.
