    About this property

    • Understood to date from 1896, Meadcroft is an impressive country house occupying a wonderful rural position on the edge of Shackleford village. The current owners have been in residence for over 17 years and have fully refurbished the house, adding a significant extension and creating a contemporary designed home perfectly suited for modern family living.

      Meadcroft is approached via a sweeping gravelled driveway, with parking for numerous cars. This stunning family home has been modernised throughout whilst sympathetically retaining a number of character features such as original panelling, open fireplaces and enjoys the volume of room sizes one would expect of a property from this era.

      The open plan kitchen/breakfast room is generous in size and beautifully designed with a central island, AGA, integrated appliances and underfloor heating. There is an adjoining dining area with two sets of double doors opening on to the garden. Off the kitchen is a utility room from which there is access to a flexible-use studio room with external double doors, a larder and boot room leading to a covered porch.
      There is an elegant reception room with large bay windows and a log burning stove, a formal dining room with panelled walls as well as a versatile snug, ideal for relaxing, also benefitting from log burning stoves.

      On the first floor is a fabulous principal bedroom with an en suite with both bath and walk-in shower. Six further double bedrooms can be found across the hall, two with en suite facilities, and a family bathroom. There is the opportunity to use the seventh bedroom as a dressing room if required.

      The property has substantial loft space which is currently used for storage.

      Outside, the stunning mature gardens extend to approximately 3 acres and have been well tended over the years. The gardens are well suited to families with a vast area of level lawn framed by specimen trees. A delightful patio terrace runs the length of the house with pleasant seating area to enjoy the summer months with a timber pergola walkways to either side.

      There is a designated vegetable garden to one side and a length of evergreen hedging partly screens the outdoor pool which has a paved surround for sun loungers and just beyond the shelter of the Crown pavilion. There is a very useful separate games room with an adjoining cloakroom, greenhouse and a separate store.

    I love the proportions and layout of Meadcroft which together with the large flat lawn and swim pool pool is well suited for family living. It is also extremely conveniently located.
