    About this property

    • Aston Manor is a classic Georgian Grade II Listed house which stands very proud within it's own grounds. Originally part of a much larger farm, the house enjoys views over fields and the surrounding countryside. Situated in the village of Aston, the house is approximately 8 miles from Market Drayton in Shropshire and 8 miles from Newcastle-under-Lyme in Staffordshire, offering the best of both counties whilst also being close to the Cheshire border.

      Aston Manor has been updated and adapted over recent years whilst retaining many of the original features. More recently the leadwork on the roof has been re-done, the loft insulation replaced and the boiler has been replaced in January 2024. The house is very much a practical family home with well proportioned rooms and a mix of formal and informal reception space. The back entrance is currently used as the main access with a generous gravel parking area within a courtyard which provides access to the back door, through which is a useful boot room and utility with a workshop off, and a separate door into the courtyard.

      The hallway provides access to a ground floor double bedroom, a separate shower room and separate WC. This accommodation has been adapted for the current owners elderly parents. The formal reception space includes a sitting room with a multifuel burner, a French door leading out to the side of the house and a door leading through to the music room/morning room which has a fireplace and French doors leading outside onto the gravel seating area and formal gardens. A door leads back into the main hallway and front door, where you may access the wonderful kitchen living area.

      The farmhouse style kitchen has a four oven electric AGA, fossil tiled floor tiles, a large central island with a breakfast bar to one end, integrated dishwasher and a sink. There is a selection of fitted floor and base units with a fitted induction hob and electric oven, a useful storage/pantry cupboard and a larder fridge. The open plan living is really lovely and works very well as a family and entertaining space with French doors leading outside onto the gardens.

      The original staircase, from the main hall, rise to the first floor where there is a double bedroom with built in wardrobes, and a separate access to a secondary staircase. This part of the house could serve well as Air B & B, as there is a separate bathroom with a sunken bath and shower. There are a further three double bedrooms on this floor all of which are a generous size and mostly have built in wardrobes. On the second floor there are a further four large double bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite bathroom.

There is a log store to the side along with a gym/bike store which has electricity connected and security shutters to the door.
