Full Details

Enjoying an elevated position overlooking the Langott Valley in Fairoak, Blackwood House has stunning views from almost all rooms. Set back from the lane by a driveway that rises to an area of parking and double garage, the property offers a feeling of privacy and space whilst still being within easy reach of larger settlements.

Fairoak is equidistant of both Eccleshall to the south and Market Drayton to the north west, both of which have a plethora of amenities. The M6 at both junction 14 or 15 is a short distance away whilst the county town of Stafford or Stoke have mainline rail stations providing regular intercity services to London, Birmingham and Manchester.

The spacious property utilises the elevated position to really make the most of the panoramic views with the majority of the accommodation on the upper level. Both the large sitting room and equally impressive master bedroom are located to the front with large picture windows and doors opening out onto a balcony from where the exceptional views can be enjoyed.

The front door opens into a large porch with plenty of space for coats, shoes and muddy boots. This in turn opens into a hallway with a large reception room or bedroom to the left and internal door the the double garage to the right.


Turned stairs rise to the first floor landing from where the remainder of the accommodation is centred around. At the front is a large sitting room, open through to the dining room behind with equally impressive views to the side. Beyond the dining room is a well appointed kitchen, opening to a rear hallway with guest cloak room and utility room beyond.


On the opposing side of the landing are three bedrooms, the largest of which is the master with a large en suite bathroom. The master bedroom also has a side door with a further area of decked balcony and an opportunity to enjoy al fresco morning coffee. The two remaining bedrooms are served by a principal bathroom.


The rear garden extends to approx 0.7 acres and is bounded by hedging and mature conifers. There is a ramp to one side providing access from the lower level and steps to the other side, incorporating a water feature and further covered seating area.
