Full Details

A beautiful Grade II property within walking distance of Eccleshall’s thriving High Street. The property has been comprehensively renovated throughout and significantly improved whilst great care has been taken to retain many period features. It is presented in absolutely stunning condition, standing as testament to the current owners’ taste and attention to detail.

The front door opens directly into a large entrance hallway with striking turned solid oak staircase ascending to all floors. There are three large reception rooms on the ground floor, all of which have French doors opening out onto the rear terrace. Two of the reception rooms are divided by original full height bi-folding screen doors allowing unification into one larger room or separation to two intimate spaces.


An inner hallway leads to the impressive, bespoke kitchen, with solid wood units including two granite topped islands and twin range cookers. To one end of the large kitchen is a family room beyond which is a separate utility room, pantry cupboard and the internal entrance to a ground floor annexe. Stairs rise from the family room to the substantial master suite with its own dressing room, walk in wardrobe and bathroom.


There are three further en-suite double bedrooms on the first floor, all beautifully appointed with high end fittings. The main staircase rises again to the second floor landing where there is a fourth double bedroom with en-suite shower room and a self-contained one bedroom apartment with separate sitting room, en-suite double bedroom and smartly fitted kitchen.


Externally there is a triple garage to the front with a large driveway with an additional driveway to the rear of the property. The rear garden is predominantly laid to lawn with a raised, paved terrace adjacent to the house from which French doors open out onto.


Eagle House is within walking distance of a thriving High Street with a wealth of independent retailers, a number of bars and pubs, doctors’ surgery and award winning butchers. There is a primary school within walking distance and secondary schooling in nearby Stafford, Newport or Newcastle. The mainline railway station is a short distance away in the county town of Stafford providing regular intercity services to London, Birmingham and Manchester. The M6 motorway is a similarly short distance away as is the A50. Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester and East Midlands airports are all within 45 to 60 minutes.


The property is currently being operated as a successful bed and breakfast business, benefitting from a five star rating from Trip Advisor. There is potential to maintain the business or scope to increase it by including the self-contained annexe or master suite if desired.
