The property Cedars House is a handsome Georgian residence located on the fringe of the popular market town of Much Wenlock. The house is believed to date from the 17th century, with later additions in the early 1800s and now provides substantial family accommodation across four floors. Many of the original period features have been retained, most notably the sash windows and shutters, open fireplaces and plaster work.
Cedars House has an excellent flow of rooms, with the central hallway and oak staircase surrounded by the principal reception rooms including an elegant dining room, drawing room, sitting room and study. The kitchen features a range of contemporary cream cupboards and a Rayburn cooker; a breakfast room lies adjacent. Subject to the necessary permissions, the kitchen and breakfast room could be extended into the rear courtyard to create an open plan family space. The garden room is the most recent addition, providing a contemporary reception room with vaulted ceilings and French doors leading out onto the side and rear gardens.
A handsome staircase leads to the first floor with the principal bedroom suite featuring a range of built-in wardrobes and cupboards and an en suite bathroom. Six further bedrooms are arranged over the first and second floors, served by two bathrooms.
The three bedroom detached cottage adjacent(Hazeldene, 12 Victoria Road) is also available for purchase and would provide excellent secondary accommodation and or a rental income if required. Please speak to the agent for further details.
This property has 1.17 acres of land.
Outside The property is approached via a large driveway with an area of garden interspersed with specimen trees and shrubs. Adjacent to the driveway is a large stone garage block with integral stables and a small coach house above which could serve as an ideal home office or games room. The gardens, extending to approximately 1.17 acres, offer an excellent degree of privacy and are largely south facing with an attractive limestone wall containing a formal garden with extensive lawns and pathways leading between well stocked borders. To the top of the garden, the former paddock now provides an attractive informal garden with an orchard. There is a large terraced area to the rear of Cedars House, providing an excellent place for outdoor entertaining and from which to enjoy the open country views.
