Full Details

Hamlet House is a substantial characterful family home, located on the thriving High Street of Eccleshall, boasting a wealth of independent and boutique retailers, coffee shops, doctors’ surgery, library and bars. The double fronted façade is one of the most recognisable properties on the high street, contributing to the variety of architecture that has created such an attractive street scene.

This impressive property has a central hallway with an  elegant staircase rising to the first floor and two large reception rooms at the  front of similar proportion, both of which have sash windows to the front. There is a useful cellar accessed from the rear of the hall along with access to the kitchen  dining room and conservatory.

The kitchen is well-appointed with granite work surfaces  and light oak units, the inset stainless-steel sink under a large window that overlooks the rear terrace and garden beyond. A separate walk in pantry cupboard  provides useful storage and features the original stone still.

Beyond the kitchen is a further reception room, currently  in use as a dining room with a French window opening out onto the rear terrace.  The conservatory also opens out on to the south facing rear terrace. In one half of a brick and tile outbuilding, there is a  useful laundry, WC and shower room off the conservatory, the other half houses the mains gas boiler and separate log shed/ coal store.

There are four bedrooms on the first floor, the largest  being the master bedroom with sliding mirrored doors opening to reveal a dressing area and en-suite shower room. The remaining three bedrooms are served  by a large principal bathroom.

Externally, there is a large south facing garden which  rises from the rear terrace to a shaped lawn enjoying a great deal of privacy. The owners have created a fabulous outdoor entertaining area from a former brick-built  piggery while at the rear of the garden is a large 16’x 11’ timber garden room   which is currently being used as a comfortable home office with an electrical supply and independent phone line. There is an electric panel heater along with a small cast iron log burning stove creating a wonderful ambience.

There are two garages belonging to the property, a  detached double garage with inspection pit and a single garage with an area of  hardstanding to the front, providing parking for two vehicles. The parking is  accessed from Vicarage Close. The property has a Grade II listing.

Eccleshall is equidistant from junctions 14 or 15 of the M6  and a similarly short distance from mainline rail stations in Stoke and  Stafford, both of which provide regular intercity connections to London,  Birmingham and Manchester. There are three international airports within an  hour’s drive. Schooling in Eccleshall is primary, with secondary schools in  Stafford, Stone and Newcastle under Lyme.
