Full Details

The Oak House is a one of a kind property set in substantial grounds of approx. 3.6 acres in a rural spot close to Eccleshall and the county town of Stafford. With great access to the motorway network and the West Coast Mainline the property makes an attractive prospect for commuting combined with the space readily available for home working.

The whole house has been the subject of a thorough restoration and extension, creating a wonderful family home with adjoining leisure complex. The name Oak House is very fitting given the light and airy feeling throughout much of the house, afforded by large oak double-glazed window frames and exposed timbers. The level of detail and craftsmanship is simply second to none and it would be hard to imagine a way to further improve the property.

The original part of the house dates back to the 17th century and the sympathetic modernisation has left as much charm and character unaffected. The large sitting room is an impressive space with original exposed beams and inglenook fireplace housing a log burning stove creating a warm and cosy space.

At the heart of the house is a large, bespoke kitchen, open-plan dining and family area with a further sitting room or family snug off to the rear. Roof lights and oak framed double doors allow light to flood the space and offer far reaching views over the plot and to farmland beyond.

The single story east wing houses a utility room, guest cloak room, cinema room, in turn leading to the leisure suite comprising gym, shower/ changing room, steam room, sauna and indoor heated swimming pool.

One the first floor the accommodation is arranged around a landing which has retained the original exposed oak beams and structure. Two large bedrooms are found at the rear of the property in the extended part of the house and are very striking spaces thanks to the large oak framed floor to ceiling windows offering outstanding views to the rear. One of the two rooms serves as a Master Bedroom having a very smart en-suite shower room.

Four further double bedrooms are to be found on the first floor in addition to a family bathroom with roll top bath and modern suite.

Stairs rise to the second floor where a bedroom suite can be found, currently used as a play room and child's bedroom but equally useful as an adult bedroom, dressing room and retreat from the hubbub of family life.

Externally the property boasts a triple detached garage of brick and tile construction, with internal stairs rising to a large room above.

The gardens and paddock surround the property and extend to approx. 3.35 acres of level ground, bounded to the front by mature hedging and fencing to the side and rear. An area to the rear of the property has been attractively landscaped with a flagstone terrace and steps rising to the lawn.

Services are by way of mains electricity, oil fired central heating and a water treatment plant. The property is approached by Grange Road and smart gates set into a red brick wall mark the entrance to the driveway.
