Full Details

The Gables is without doubt, one of the most iconic properties on the High Street, contributing to the variety of architecture that Eccleshall is renowned for. With its turret and curved first floor window, The Gables has a striking frontage. It’s a substantial family home with four bedrooms, three reception rooms, parking to the rear and large gardens that run down to Castle Meadows, providing a wonderful open view.

Ideally located on the High Street, the convenient location is an easy walk to the plethora of amenities on offer. An additional advantage of the property's situation is that the rear of the house enjoys a great deal of privacy with a large garden little overlooked by neighbouring properties. The current owners have maintained and improved the property throughout, whilst being mindful to retain character and charm. Stripped pine doors, bespoke carved fireplaces along with antique fixtures and fittings give the home great warmth.

The front door opens into an impressive reception hall with a stunning oak panelled fireplace and turned staircase rising majestically to the first floor. A doorway under the staircase leads down to the Butler’s cellar, an ideal place for storage of wine. Off the hallway, to the right is a large reception sitting room with south facing hardwood double glazed windows to the front. The sitting room has a beautiful antique cast iron fireplace in a Breche Marble surround housing a mains gas fire.

The hallway then leads onto a well-proportioned dining room at the rear, in turn opening into a conservatory overlooking the rear courtyard. There is a generous kitchen with a mains gas fired AGA, electric oven, microwave and gas hob. A range of matching wall and base units, integrated appliances including a water softener, dishwasher, fridge and freezer. The kitchen opens into a spacious garden room with vaulted ceiling and windows overlooking both the courtyard and garden beyond.

There are four bedrooms on the first floor, the largest being the master bedroom at the front of the property which has an en-suite shower room off. The remaining three bedrooms are served by the principal bathroom with bedroom four having views of Holy Trinity Church and benefiting from an en-suite WC, bidet and basin.

Shared access over the neighbouring property leading to a large remotely controlled sliding gate which opens into the rear courtyard area where there is space for parking. The owners achieved planning permission for a spacious garage which has now lapsed.

The tranquil gardens are well stocked with a variety of mature shrubs, plants and specimen trees designed to give year-round interest. Frequently involved with the open garden scheme, the garden is a credit to the current owners and being on the southern side of the High Street runs down to the Castle Meadows at the rear providing lovely open views.

Village life:

There is a wide variety of amenities on the high street, supporting a wealth of independent and boutique retailers, doctor’s surgery, chemist, post office, library, wine bars, pubs and coffee shops. Local schooling is a primary school with secondary schooling nearby Stafford, Stone and Newcastle.

The M6 motorway at junction 14 or 15 are a short distance away as are the mainline rail station of Stoke and Stafford, both providing regular intercity services to London, Birmingham and Manchester. There are three international airports within an hour of Eccleshall.
