Full Details

The Old Exchange is a superb five bedroom family home, it’s narrow frontage belying the spacious home behind the facade. It’s a characterful property in an envious, central High Street location, in the heart of the pretty town of Eccleshall. Eccleshall is a short distance from either junction 14 or 15 of the M6 motorway and within easy reach of the mainline stations in Stafford from where there are regular intercity connections to London, Birmingham and Manchester. Eccleshall has a well regarded with secondary schooling in Stafford, Stone or Newcastle.

The front door opens into a generous hallway with a sitting room to the front with a bright, south facing aspect. The hallway has a ground floor Cloakroom off and and access to the large cellar.


Beyond the hallway is a more intimate snug with charming inglenook fireplace and window overlooking the enclosed rear courtyard.


Beyond the snug is the contemporary, bright and airy kitchen extension, it’s vaulted ceiling creating a wonderful entertaining space with the glazed garden elevation affording wonderful views over the decked area and on to the large lawned garden beyond.


There are two bedrooms on the first floor along with the large bathroom. Stairs then rise again to the second floor where there are three bedrooms, the master being the largest enjoying wonderful views over the rear garden. Bedroom four, also a generous double bedroom has a staircase rising to a large mezzanine over.


There is a very private internal courtyard off the kitchen and hallway, with access to the rear decked area that the glass elevation of the kitchen opens out onto. There is an additional pedestrian gate accessed from the driveway to the side which serves the library.


The decked area leads to a detached coach house which has been part converted to create a games room on the first floor with French windows to the gable end overlooking the garden and Castle Meadows beyond. The ground floor has remained largely untouched but has the potential to be further developed for a number of uses, subject the the relevant permissions. The coach house has an enclosed courtyard with the main proportion of the garden opening out to a very large lawned area which runs the width of the Old Exchange and the neighbouring property.


The property cleverly blends the character of the original property with some wonderful flourishes. The convenience of the location is matched by the size and privacy of the plot to the rear.
