Originally the principle residence of a substantial sporting estate, Chatwell Court is an impressive country residence with great scope. Sitting in around 13 acres of gardens, grounds, paddock, Trout lake and woodland there is much to enjoy and offers a wonderful lifestyle opportunity.

The property is tucked away behind the grand Grade II listed 19th Century arched entrance and circular "carriage" drive that wraps around the property and sits at the heart of the village of Great Chatwell. A quiet rural village and conveniently positioned for those with a need to commute.

Surrounded by open countryside, Great Chatwell is a small village situated on the rural Shropshire/Staffordshire border between the towns of Shifnal (6 miles) and Newport (5 miles) and is perfect for those who wish to enjoy the rural life but are required to commute. It is conveniently located for easy commuter links via the M6 to the West, junction 12, 9.5 miles away and the M54, to the South, junction 3, 7 miles away. Direct trains to the West Midlands are available from Cosford station 7 miles away.

The popular Lilleshall Hall Golf Club and Lilleshall Hall Sport Centre are both within 5 miles and Shifnal Golf Club within 7 miles. Racing at Wolverhampton and Ludlow. There are a number of well-respected state and independent schools in the area including, Idsall School, Shifnal, King Edward VI High School and Stafford Grammar, Burton Borough, Newport High School for Girls and Haberdashers Adams Grammar School.

The House
The property is steeped in history and this is evident through both the inside and out, the original section of the house is dated to around the mid-18th Century with further additions since. Within the gardens are the remains of a 16th Century Chapel of Rest, a Victorian Greenhouse and even a large monolithic sandstone which has fossilised dinosaur footprints. We have been informed the footprints have been dated by a Palaeontologist to some 200 million years.

Entering through the front door and into the welcoming reception hall access is provided to the drawing and dining room. With their high ceilings and bay windows these charming rooms offer a sense of grandeur and are ideal for entertaining, both enjoy views across open countryside.

The elegant drawing room is some 28ft in length and has an attractive working fireplace which offers a central focal point for the room and with windows on two elevations allowing light to flood in.

The equally impressive dining room is some 22ft and with its bay window and fireplace provides the ideal room for entertaining. A convenient door leads to a rear inner hall with WC and through to a snug/morning room. Double doors lead out into the "Monkey Puzzle" garden, or alternatively a door provides access into the large kitchen which is an impressive space with doors leading outside.

Upstairs, off the galleried landing, is the master bedroom suite which benefits from a well-proportioned ensuite and in-built storage. There is a dressing room/bedroom and three further large double bedrooms which are served by a family bathroom and a shower room.

To the side of the property is a private lawned garden dominated by an impressive Monkey Puzzle tree. A Victorian Greenhouse makes a lovely feature and a small coppice provides a pleasing back-drop.

A partially walled kitchen-garden sits to the rear of the property and gives those wishing to grow their own produce plenty of scope. Adjacent to a lawned area which runs down to a breath-taking lake that sits within established woodland. Served by Wyndford Brook, the lake provides refuge for a variety of wildlife and its central island provides an ideal nesting ground for wildfowl.

With a huge variety of both self-seeded and planted trees this woodland extends to some 5.5 acres and hidden within is a quarry pit, within which is the original water source to the property and the village which has a "ram" which pumps water to the Water Tower within the grounds adjacent to a 1 acre paddock.

There is a double stable building which is currently utilised as storage, an art studio and also two pigsties and a tack room.

A further 53ft barn with several stables and stores provides a particularly useful outbuilding and in all, the property extends to around 13.090 acres.

The property is offered for sale Freehold with Vacant Possession.
