About this property

  • Ebnal Hall is a wonderful family home with a pretty Georgian façade which has been painstakingly restored and refurbished to a high standard retaining original, period features to present stylish, modern-day living over three floors.
    Set within attractive gardens and grounds extending to just under 8 acres, the hall offers a fabulous lifestyle in an easily accessible part of Shropshire.
    Approached through a circular private driveway which sweeps through the wildflower meadow, Ebnal Hall is an exquisite country house built in 1690 which stands in partially walled gardens.
    The accommodation flows effortlessly from a central rear hall which has a range of bespoke storage and cloak cupboards.
    The contemporary living kitchen forms the heart of the house boasting a spacious family living/dining area with a reclaimed tiled floor with heating beneath; two sets of French doors, one to the garden and one to a morning terrace; and a bespoke handcrafted Tegla kitchen which incorporates a Lacanche range cooker with gas hob, Bosch microwave, dishwasher, fridge and large breakfast island with a granite top. This opens to the utility area with fitted units and a sink, a wine fridge, larder cupboard, housekeeping cupboard and a further laundry room.
    From the kitchen, double doors open to the snug with built-in book shelves and a wood burning stove.
    The principle staircase rises from the hall which enjoys plenty of natural light and from where the reception rooms flow. Currently serving as an office, music room and a sitting room, all of these rooms have built-in shelving, oak flooring and large windows that offer views of the walled garden, open lawns and orchard.
    There are two WCs on the ground floor and a secondary staircase.
    The principle bedroom enjoys splendid views of the gardens and grounds and has a spacious ensuite with oak flooring, bespoke fitted wardrobes, a freestanding bath and separate shower.

    The cellar comprises two rooms and a priest hole.
    The house benefits from Sonos, fibre broadband and oil central heating (regulated through a Hive system) throughout.

    OUTSIDE
    The house is approached through electric gates via a well-lit, private driveway which sweeps to an ample gravel turning and parking area with an attractive pond opposite. There is an open bay car port with garaging for four vehicles and a good sized workshop.
    Wysteria adorns the south facing façade which overlooks the charming, 18th century walled garden which has full and established herbaceous borders.
    The remainder of the formal gardens are mainly laid to lawn with a wonderful terrace which has a gazebo benefitting from a built-in sound system and heaters. The old shippon is adjacent and has been recently re-modelled and refurbished into a home bar/party room with a timber bar, living area and store room beyond. There is also a floodlit, hard
    tennis court.
    A tall copper beach hedge surrounds the morning terrace and a kitchen garden planted with a selection of fruit and vegetables including potatoes, beans, lettuce, peas, courgettes, rhubarb and strawberries.
    A nepita lined pathway leads through the orchard to the wildflower meadow which includes a pond attracting a variety of wildlife.
    There is a separately serviced building to the rear of the meadow. The main house and gardens are surrounded on three sides by paddocks, all with post and rail fencing and mains water connection, which can be accessed from a separate entrance via the lane.
