An impressive Victorian country house with stunning views to the Welsh Hills, Coach House with flat, a range of outbuildings, glorious gardens and parkland

The property Palms Hill House is an outstanding Victorian country house standing in an elevated position with stunning far reaching views over to the Welsh Hills. The house, one of the most notable in North Shropshire, is surrounded by mature gardens, with parkland to the front and complimented by its original coach house with a spacious flat over and a versatile range of outbuildings. The property and outbuildings have undergone an extensive scheme of renovation during its current ownership and offers a wonderful balance of character, historic charm and modern infrastructure.

The house offers elegant, light and comfortable living space lending itself for both everyday living and larger scale entertaining. It embraces striking period detail including superb fireplaces, deep mullioned windows with stained glass slips, carved panels, moulded ceilings and decorative freizes, while combining modern day comforts and is beautifully presented throughout. The front door opens to an impressive hall off which lead three formal reception rooms with fireplaces and deep windows framing the views. A cosy sitting room and the bespoke fitted kitchen with its AGA range are found beyond, both enjoying views over the sweeping lawns to the rear of the house. The home office, laundry and pantry complete the ground floor accommodation with an extensive basement/cellar below, accessed from the inner hallway.

An impressive wide staircase, lit by two deep windows, leads up to a spacious landing off which is the principal bedroom suite with a walk in dressing room and large en suite bathroom. Three further double bedrooms, one with a discreet shower room, are served by two family bathrooms and a separate W.C. To the end of the corridor is a fifth bedroom/gym. A back staircase leads up from the ground floor and rises to the first and to the second floor where there are four further bedrooms served by a large bathroom. Beyond is a sitting room with a kitchenette area and adjoining model/games room. This floor has previously served as staff accommodation.

The Coach House Beyond the house, the former Coach House has traditional stabling, stalls, tack room, stores and a garage. Steps lead up to the Flat above which offers well presented, spacious and light accommodation. This includes a large sitting/dining room, two double bedrooms, a third single bedroom/study, bathroom, kitchen and utility room.

This property has 13.07 acres of land.


Garden and Grounds Impressive electric gates open to a beautiful tree lined driveway which leads to the gravel sweep to the front of the house and from where the parkland with a wildlife pool and terrace extends into glorious far reaching views. The drive continues beyond to the Coach House with its flat above, and onto a further range of versatile outbuildings and parking area. The house stands in formal lawned gardens with the walled kitchen garden providing productive vegetable beds along with an orchard and a recently restored Victorian green house. The heated swimming pool, with a retractable cover, is situated in a well sheltered, part walled sunny courtyard with an adjoining pool house. The gardens, grounds and parkland, ideal for grazing horses, cattle and sheep extend to about 13 acres.


Location Surrounded by beautiful North Shropshire countryside, Palms Hill House stands in an elevated position with stunning views and easy access to the county town of Shrewsbury and the A5/M54 for commuting to Midland business centres. The much sought after village of Clive is nearby, as is the small market town of Wem with good local amenities and a regular train service to Shrewsbury, Crewe (for onward travel to London), Birmingham and Manchester. The house is well located for a number of highly regarded schools both within the private and state sectors including Thomas Adams in Wem, Packwood Prep, Prestfelde Prep, Ellesmere College, Shrewsbury School, Shrewsbury High School for Girls & Shrewsbury Sixth Form.
