Full Details


Red Lion Farm is a substantial family home in the village of Slindon, a short distance from the popular town of Eccleshall. The four-bedroom character property is presented in immaculate condition throughout, perfectly blending contemporary styling while retaining as much of the original charm. The current owners have improved the property throughout with décor in neutral colours and replacement double glazing.

The property is securely gated to the front, opening into a large gravelled parking area with detached double garage providing ample parking for a number of vehicles, horsebox etc.

Whilst there is a path leading from the driveway to the pretty front door, day to day living uses the entry through the rear hallway into the large kitchen which is fitted with a bespoke range of wall and base units, a combination of slate tiled flooring and stripped oak floor boards all adding to the charm. A separate utility room provides additional storage and plumbing for white goods.

 

The ground floor has four reception rooms; an intimate sitting room to the front with open fire, a larger, more formal drawing room with study or playroom off and stunning garden room to the rear with direct access to the rear terrace and wonderful views over the garden and paddock beyond.

 

There are four bedrooms on the first floor, the largest being the master bedroom with a smartly appointed en-suite and large dressing room. The layout is flexible and it would be quite a simple task to create a fifth bedroom from the dressing room if required. The remaining three bedrooms are served by a similarly smart principal bathroom with all bedrooms enjoying far reaching rural views.

 

Externally the double garage has a large room over which would lend itself to further development if required, of course, subject the relevant permissions. To the right of the garage is a mature orchard with several established fruit trees. The path to the front doors is flanked by more formal gardens with well stocked borders, while the rear has a large flag stone terrace surrounded by lawned garden.

 

The paddock extends to approximately 3 acres, is securely fenced by post and rail. The property enjoys a rural outlook with some fabulous far reaching views.

 

Slindon is a mile or so from Eccleshall with a wide range of independent shops and amenities. Its equidistant of both junctions 14 and 15 of the M6, with mainline railway stations in Stafford and Stoke, both providing regular intercity connections to London, Birmingham and Manchester.
