- Download Brochure
The property Shooters Hill Hall is an exquisite Grade II listed Georgian country house with glorious views over unspoilt countryside to the Welsh Hills. Surrounded by part wooded gardens, grounds and parkland, it has the benefit of a charming attached courtyard cottage. The house has been renovated to a high specification and beautifully presented throughout.
Built in 1780 by Mr Oakley, a successful wool merchant, who owned the surrounding estate, Shooters Hill Hall was positioned in an elevated situation from where he could survey his land. The house has a classically beautiful, well balanced façade with a central portico and a glazed double front door with a fanlight over. A house of immense elegance, it retains wonderful Georgian detail including high ceilings, intricate decorative plaster work, attractive fireplace and deep sash windows with shutters.
The elegant front door opens to a striking central hallway with archways off which the two front reception rooms have wide shuttered windows through which the views can be enjoyed. The drawing room has a Victorian extension, now a dining area and an impressive panelled fireplace. The beautifully designed kitchen is fitted with bespoke cupboards, Belfast style sink and marble worktops. Beyond the large island is a dining area and fitted sitting area. The back hall/utility room and cellar complete the downstairs accommodation.
An attractive staircase leads from the hall to a wide well lit landing off which lead the two front bedrooms one with fireplace and both with sash windows from where the exceptional views can be enjoyed. These are served by a well fitted bathroom with shower. The large principal bedroom has a luxurious en suite bathroom. A connecting door opens to the back landing which is also accessed by a secret staircase and off which are two further bedrooms and a contemporary styled bathroom.
To the rear of the house is the attached cottage which has presently been converted to provide a downstairs en suite bedroom, upstairs sitting room/bedroom with en suite shower and kitchen. Planning permission has been granted to connect this accommodation to the house via a south facing garden room.
This property has 7.23 acres of land.
Outside The house is approached by a long driveway through post and rail paddocks with a beautiful spread turkey oak to one side and bounded by many other traditional mature trees. The gardens are part wooded with sweeping lawns and a former grass tennis court. In all they extend to approximately 7.23 acres.
Location Shooters Hill Hall stands in an attractive elevated position commanding outstanding views over unspoilt North Shropshire Countryside to the Welsh Hills beyond.
