5.95 acres, Applecroft, Spoonley Gate, Pattingham, Shropshire, WV6, West Midlands
For Sale - Guide Price £995,000


Built in the 1950’s, Applecroft stands in a commanding position with fantastic far reaching views out to the Long Mynd and Wenlock Edge in the North, the Clees to the West and the cooling towers at Ironbridge and The Wrekin to the East. Set in the midst of 5.95 acres of undulating gardens and grounds which includes 3.24 acres of native woodland. Fine select species adorn the grounds for year-round interest. There is a level lawn nearest the house with a sun terrace adjacent to the living room with a brick-built gazebo, ideal for summer entertaining and al fresco dining. Grass paths meander around the grounds down to the wildlife pond. The workshop, found to the left of the house on the outskirts of the plot, has a pit, power, light and access.

The current owners have lived here since the early 1990’s and have enjoyed all that this property has to offer, which over the years as a car enthusiast, the workshop with inspection pit has proved very useful. The house itself benefits from a large kitchen breakfast room, with utility behind, a separate dining room, lovely proportioned living room and two integral double garages on the ground floor. Upstairs, a master suite with dressing room and ensuite shower room, three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Spoonley Gate, is a semi rural area situated on the edge of the Shropshire/Staffordshire border and is ideally placed for those seeking country living, whilst maintaining good commuter links for the Midlands and beyond. There are a number of well-respected state and independent schools in the area, racing at Wolverhampton and Ludlow and nearby golf clubs.

The village of Pattingham (4.1m) and the historic market town of Bridgnorth (6.9 m), have good local amenities, recreational and educational facilities, whilst the larger centres of Wolverhampton (8.6m) and Telford (12.5m), both with road and motorway links and main line rail services to include Birmingham and London. Birmingham airport can be reached in an hour.

The House
The approach to Applecroft is through wrought iron gates up a sweeping drive to the ample parking area in front of the garages. Then, steps lead across a terrace to the main entrance door through in to the large reception hall. To the right, the charming living room has exposed ceiling timbers and feature brick fireplace with inset wood burner. The tree lined views can be enjoyed from two aspects and French doors lead out to the wonderful sun terrace. Along the hall, a formal dining room to the front and a very useful pantry opposite.

The heart of this home is the brick and wooden kitchen with integral appliances which has a feature centre island with pillar which divides the kitchen from the breakfast and sitting area. A useful purpose-built laundry is at the rear, with an external door to the front and a door through to the first of the integral double garages which then leads through to the adjacent double garage and boiler cupboard.

On the first floor is the master suite with dressing area which has an archway through to the ensuite shower room and an archway through to the fully fitted master bedroom which enjoys outlooks over fields and beyond at the front and to the side, the north of the garden. Along the landing, three double bedrooms, again with fitted bedroom furniture and a family bathroom with jacuzzi corner bath and separate enclosed shower.

As previously mentioned, this property has the benefit of two lots of double garages and a separate detached workshop with inspection pit, light and power. The property enjoys a commanding position in the middle of gardens and grounds interspersed with specimen trees to include Copper Beech, Beech, Willow, Fir Trees and Silver Birch which have been planted for year-round interest and make a spectacular sight. Nearest the house, a level lawn and entertaining area includes the brick gazebo with lights and bar which has further seating areas above and from where one can really appreciate the glorious far reaching views.

The native coppice above is a wonderful spot for bird watching and for the children, the opportunity for outside play such as building of dens and tree houses and watching tadpoles down by the wildlife pond. With the woodland, there is plenty of logs to keep the wood burner going. The workshop is situated beyond the pond and has the opportunity to have its own entrance drive, thus keeping it separate from the house.
