Full Details

Chatcull House is a substantial home enjoying a very peaceful and private location a short distance from Eccleshall. The property enjoys some wonderful, far reaching views over gently rolling countryside.

The characterful property is in need of a scheme of renovations throughout and provides a great opportunity to further develop the property and the range of outbuildings (subject to obtaining the relevant planning permissions).

Chatcull is a small hamlet, a short distance from the thriving town of Eccleshall, itself within easy reach of the larger towns of Stafford, Newport and Stone all of which have a range of amenities and links to the wider transport network.

The property has some wonderful period features combined with a flexible layout which will lend itself well to more contemporary living. The mid-century Scandinavian designed open plan kitchen with internal courtyard is a striking feature, being a very interesting counterpoint to the more traditional layout through the remainder of the house.

There are five reception rooms with a large dining kitchen, separate dining area and two large reception rooms to the front. In addition to this there are several other useful rooms that include a pantry, laundry and ground floor cloak room.

Turned stairs rise to the first floor where there are six bedrooms, a bathroom and separate shower room. As with the ground floor, there is a good deal of flexibility in the layout and further opportunity to remodel to suit.

Externally to the rear of the courtyard is a run of outbuildings which have been utilised as storage and garaging. There is a single story, open fronted run to the rear, opening out to a walled garden.

There are ample gardens to the front and side of the property, which if selectively cleared, could provide a more useable lawned area if desired. A garden room has been created at the front of the property, with double doors out onto the front lawn.
