A quintessential 5 bedroom Edwardian property in one of the most enviable locations in the desirable town of Church Stretton.
Kirklands is a handsome quintessential Edwardian property with an attractive façade. The house is set in an easily accessible location within walking distance of Church Stretton and its facilities. It occupies a prime position, affording wonderful views towards the Long Mynd and Caer Caradoc from almost every window and from the largely private garden.
The house has a wonderful warmth and character, its accommodation being well laid out. The rooms are generous with high ceilings throughout and ample windows provide plenty of natural light. There is extensive and extremely generous living space extending to approximately 400m². (4,305.5 ft ²), making it suitable for both family life and entertaining. This is a large but easily useable property, providing the opportunity to work from home' either inside the house or perhaps in the summerhouse.
There are three principle rooms and a general layout that flows. It has the advantage of being in an elevated spot, set back from Burway Road and only a short walk into town. The gardens and grounds offer a sense of space and are largely very private, allowing Kirklands to form its own little microcosm.
The house sits in a large, mature and well landscaped garden with access from Burway Road. The house has generous and well-flowing accommodation with wide corridors, level access and a large Stannah state-of-the-art 6-person passenger lift.
The house is approached through a gate and a brick-paved drive, with a double garage on the right hand side.
The front door leads into a spacious entrance hall that accommodates the Stannah lift to the first floor. The entrance hall easily connects to the major rooms through an inner hall. The drawing room is spacious and light, having dual aspect views and a large bay window overlooks the gardens. It also benefits from a log burner. The drawing room leads into the most beautifully positioned conservatory with spectacular views towards Caer Caradoc.
Adjacent is a large dining room perfectly suited for family use and entertaining, again positioned to make the most of the views of the Stretton Hills. The hall has a downstairs WC and useful under-stairs cupboard and then leads into the traditional farmhouse-style kitchen / breakfast room with an Aga. Adjoining the kitchen is a snug / office, a later extension to the house that makes the perfect space for working from home. Beyond the kitchen is a spacious utility with fitted units and facilities. From the utility a door leads into the garden, and a second door links into a useful array of boiler room, workshop, a log store and WC.
The first floor has a light and spacious open-galleried landing, with access from the lift plus a seating area. This leads to two spacious double bedrooms, both of which have scenic views. The principle suite is a large bedroom with a splendid bay window with views towards Caer Caradoc and a well-proportioned and accessible ensuite bath and large walk-in shower.
A further flight of stairs leads from the landing to the second floor where there are two additional bedrooms and a family bathroom. These are also well suited for alternative uses, such as a play room or office space or a teenager / granny-flat'.
The house sits in a lovely largely secluded plot of approximately 0.6 acres. The gardens comprise a combination of well planned, landscaped lawns and mature beds to include rose borders and mature specimen trees. High hedges surround the garden, creating a feeling of privacy, yet all the time offering stunning views of the Stretton Hills. A large timber-framed summerhouse, installed in 2017, is perfect for summer evenings or could even be used as an office. There is a hidden garden which contains a vegetable patch, fruit-cage and fruit trees. There are also various sheds.
Adjoining the garage is a large stoned area well suited to parking further cars or, for example, a motor home or caravan.
