About this property

  • A gorgeous detached property positioned in the great Shropshire Hills flowing over three floors, offering over 3,600 sq ft of accommodation in total privacy. The handsome stone façade overlooks the gardens, whilst behind is the attached two bedroom annexe providing ancillary accommodation.

    This period property offers two reception rooms each having garden views wooden flooring, exposed timber ceiling beams and a fireplace completed with woodburning stoves. Through the hall is the kitchen and breakfast/dining room. Designed for entertaining, the open plan kitchen sweeps around towards the dining area where a set of French doors open onto the garden. Integrated appliances seamlessly slot into shaker style units whilst wooden worktops complete them.

    The first floor is comprised of two bedrooms and an office. The principal bedroom has two fitted wardrobes and an en suite bathroom. The main bathroom completes the first floor whilst up the wooden stair case follows two additional double bedrooms. All bedrooms are designed to expose both the wonderful wooden ceiling beams and the natural daylight.

    The annexe sits at the rear of Grist House. French doors invite light from the courtyard into the sitting room which leads into the kitchen. Following the wooden stairs to the first floor are wooden floors, exposed beams, two bedrooms and a modern shower room. There is a private garden which is accessed from the principal bedroom and a set of wooden stairs outside.

    Grist House garden is positioned at the front of the house and is overflowing with an array of flower beds, protected and bordered by mature trees, box hedges and hedgerows. Separating the front garden from the main house is a gravel driveway which wraps around the main house offering ample parking. Gated access to the annexe and main house divides the driveway establishing further privacy if necessary, between the properties.

    Three outbuildings offer additional amenities including a potting shed, wood shed and storage shed. There is a fenced paddock, of approximately an acre ideal for grazing livestock, or a pony.
