Full Details

Pool Cottage is a charming four-bedroom family home, set in approximately 2.5 acres of which just under 2 acres is paddock, enjoying wonderful views over gently rolling open farmland. The property has a huge amount of character; the original cottage having been sympathetically extended to create spacious family accommodation.

Located a short distance from the rural village of Gnosall on the border of Staffordshire and Shropshire, the property is within easy reach of the larger towns of Newport to the west and Stafford to the east. The cottage has ample reception rooms including a large hallway with guest cloakroom off, a comfortable sitting room to the front and larger, more formal drawing room to the rear with sliding doors providing superb far reaching views over the large garden and paddock.

The dining room is an impressive room, and has a wonderful feeling of space due to its vaulted roof with exposed truss work. The farmhouse kitchen is a welcoming space, the oil fired twin plate AGA being at the heart of the room, surrounded by a range of painted solid oak wall and base units.

The back kitchen, just off the main kitchen preparation area provides yet more cupboard storage in addition to a double sink and drainer and plumbing underneath for a washing machine and tumble drier and includes space for a second cooker and additional appliances. The kitchen opens out into a contemporary garden room with wonderful views over the garden and the pool from which the cottage takes its name. There is plenty of space available for a table and chairs for year-round dining, or for more relaxed seating from where the last rays of sun can be enjoyed.

There are four bedrooms on the first floor, the larger master bedroom having a dressing space and smartly fitted en-suite bathroom with panel bath and separate shower enclosure. The remaining three double bedrooms are served by an equally well-appointed principal bathroom, both bathrooms having been recently re-fitted with smart white suites.

Externally there is adequate driveway parking to the front for numerous vehicles, while the mature garden is well stocked, providing year-round interest and colour. To the side of the property there are two solid wood gates which give access from the road to the lawn gardens and to the side of this are two brick built log stores with tiled roofs, an orchard area with two pear, four apple, two cherry and a plum tree.

The attractive pool is framed by mature willow trees and provides glimpses of the views beyond. The driveway splits to the right, accessing the Nissen hut and wooden stable block with two stables.
