Full Details

Walk Mill has long been regarded as one of the prettiest spots in this part of rural Staffordshire, located a few miles from the thriving town of Eccleshall, the property is within easy reach of the M6 motorway and mainline rail stations in Stafford, Stone and Stoke on Trent from where regular intercity services connect to London, Birmingham and Manchester.

The Cottage enjoys an elevated position, reached by a private drive offering a great degree of privacy and beautiful views over the surrounding countryside.

The property sits in a surprisingly generous plot of over half an acre, which is mainly laid to lawn with well established vegetable beds and a very productive greenhouse.

The Cottage is believed to date as far back as 1852 and later extended to create a lovely family home. The ground floor has a spacious entrance hallway leading to a sitting room, in turn open into a dining room.

The kitchen is well positioned, looking over the garden and vegetable beds with a separate pantry cupboard, utility room and large guest cloak room off. An internal door provides access to the single garage.

Turned stairs rise from the hallway to the central landing with two double bedrooms to the south elevation, a bathroom off the centre of the landing and three further bedrooms overlooking the garden with far reaching views.

There is a large greenhouse and three large garden sheds with a gently sloping lawn rising away from the cottage. The large garden is private and the views from all aspects simply lovely.

The property has been in the same ownership for over 50 years and has been a wonderful family home. The cottage would benefit from a scheme of cosmetic updates throughout and offers the chance for the new owners to further develop the home to their own design.

Viewing are strictly by appointment only through the agents Edge Goodrich.
