Full Details

This charming, two bedroom character cottage sits in the heart of the thriving village of Eccleshall, within easy reach of the M6 motorway and the county town of Stafford with its mainline rail station offering regular services to London.

The property is entered by a gate to the side, which in turn leads to a small courtyard where a door leads into the hallway at the side of the property. Terracotta tiling runs through the hallway, into the dining space and onto the kitchen, unifying the open plan nature of the living accommodation.

The dining space and kitchen have a contemporary feel with some beautiful design touches such as the multi-fuel log burning stove with wonderful tiled surround. The kitchen has two Velux sky lights over the oak work preparation surfaces and hand made base units.

Double doors open out from the utility room at the rear of the kitchen to the gravelled courtyard while a wet room to the side provides a walk in shower, WC and wash hand basin.

At the front of the property is the comfortable sitting room with double glazed bay window overlooking the High Street. The open fire in exposed brick surround with weathered oak mantle provides an impressive focal point as do the plethora of exposed original beams.

A hand made, solid oak staircase was commissioned from a local craftsman, which is now a striking feature in the hallway.

The turned oak staircase leads up to the first floor landing, turning left into the master bedroom at the front of the property. The bathroom is fitted with a modern white suite and separate shower enclosure.

The second bedroom is the smaller of the two bedrooms however large enough to house a double bed. Leading from the bedroom is a rather luxurious sun room containing a Roll top bath with views over the garden and fields beyond. A door opens onto to the first floor balcony, which is perfect place to sit and enjoy the view.

Externally a courtyard adjacent to the property has space for a table and chairs, leading down to a further gravelled courtyard with ample space for entertaining. A shaped lawn is surrounded by well stocked borders planted with an abundance of perennials, tapering before opening out again to a further lawn which leads down to a summer house looking out over Castle Meadows.

Please note that a pedestrian easement exists in favour the neighbouring property to the rear of number 58.
