Formed from what were originally two estate cottages, Monkey Bridge is a wonderful family home enjoying a particularly private setting with a wealth of opportunity to embrace country life. Located on the Shropshire/Staffordshire border on what was once The Patshull Estate, the property is surrounded by unspoilt countryside and approached via a private, no though road beyond a small secluded enclave of other former estate properties.

Over time this discrete enclave has become a much-prized address with very few properties coming to the market. Consisting of two parts, this charming five-bedroom home has a further three bedroomed, self-contained annexe which is ideal for two families living together, or to provide rental income.

Monkeybridge is situated close to the hamlet of Burnhill Green and is within the Parish of Patshull and Pattingham. Pattingham village centre (4 miles), Albrighton (3.5) miles and to the East is Tettenhall (7 miles).

The property is within easy reach of key municipalities including Wolverhampton (7.4 miles) and Telford (10.6 miles), both with mainline railway stations, Shrewsbury (25.6 miles) and Birmingham (29.8 miles). Junction 3 (4.5 miles) of the M54 motorway links to the M6 and M5 motorways. Nearest airport is Birmingham which is easily accessible within an hour.

There are railway stations at Albrighton, Telford, Wolverhampton, Shrewsbury and Stafford providing rail links to Birmingham New Street and on to London Euston.

There is a good selection of both independent and state schools locally.

Approached from a privately-owned road and across the ornate bridge, the gravelled driveway to the front of the property provides extensive parking and access to the woodlands to the south and to the back paddock within the Walled Garden to the North. From the driveway the property is entered through the main front door and into the entrance hall, with parquet wood flooring and log burning stove.

These bright rooms have views stretching out over the gardens and paddocks towards the woodland beyond.

The kitchen benefits from a central island, granite worktops and an oil-fired 2 oven Aga with an integrated electric module, ceramic Belfast sink and ample space for a table. Glazed doors lead through into the Amdega garden room, complete with log burner, which enjoys views into the garden and to the paddocks and adjacent farmland.

From the kitchen is a utility area with walk-in pantry, WC, storage cupboard and access to the outside courtyard with oil tank and a brick-built garden store.

At the centre of the property, the fabulous staircase leads to a galleried landing with a large circular lightwell which allows natural light to flood into this imposing space.

Gardens & Grounds

The annexe has its own garden and parking area to the rear and a free-standing single garage. Below the master suite is a garage/workshop.

An interconnecting gateway leads through the Grade II listed Garden Wall into the second paddock. Both paddocks total 3.72 acres. Vehicular access to paddocks is from main driveway.

The original estate grounds were landscaped by Capability Brown in the 18th Century and it is rumoured that Monkey Bridge enjoys the benefits of this insofar as the off-cuts from the large variety of shrubs and trees were left in the grounds of The Monkeybridge Plantation. As such, the woodlands enjoy such species as Hornbeam, Oaks, Beech and Maples to name but a few. This woodland is a superb asset to Monkey Bridge and truly complements it’s credentials as a Country Home.
