Full Details

The spacious five bedroom family home has been much improved by the current owners, creating a warm and characterful property with ample entertaining and living space. Fradswell is a quiet village, surrounded by gently rolling countryside and a network of country lanes.

The property has a plot of approximately 5.3 acres with paddocks extending to 4.0 acres with separate gated access from the lane. The property is well placed for hacking out and served by a network of bridle paths.

Despite its rural surroundings, Fradswell is well placed for access to the A50, M6 motorway and mainline railway stations in Stafford and Stoke with regular intercity services to London, Birmingham and Manchester.

The driveway opens from the lane onto a large gravelled parking area, in turn leading to the front door. There is a large entrance hallway with very practical and large boot room with cloakroom off.
Rightfully, the centre of the home is the farmhouse kitchen, complete with oil fired Aga and large pantry cupboard off, providing very useful storage. The recent addition of an island unit has created a wonderful, social hub. The kitchen is open into a charming morning room with large arched windows allowing light to flood in from the rear courtyard which it overlooks.

Beyond the kitchen is a more formal drawing or sitting room with inglenook fireplace and internal window to the hallway, in turn leading through to a dining room and to the cellar below.

There are four double bedrooms on the first floor served by a separate shower room with electric underfloor heating and large bathroom. There is also a large storage cupboard off the landing with an enormous amount of storage space on offer.

A second staircase rises from the first floor to the large attic double bedroom on the second floor with a landing providing space for a small desk or arm-chair.

Externally there is a large gravel driveway to the front with ample parking for numerous vehicles, bounded by mature borders. The garden, as one would expect, is generous, mainly laid to lawn with a vegetable plot and orchard beyond. There is a small, enclosed courtyard to the rear with a brick and tile outbuilding.

There are approximately four acres of paddock, with gated access from the lane.
