A beautiful Georgian country house with two cottages, traditional stable yard and parkland close to Shrewsbury.
Yeaton Hall is an outstanding wisteria clad Georgian country house with a stunning outlook over parkland and unspoilt countryside beyond. The Grade II listed property stands in the privacy of well-maintained gardens and grounds with two cottages, a traditional cobbled courtyard and a range of versatile outbuildings.
The house is beautifully presented throughout with the front door opening to the hall from where a graceful staircase rises to the first floor. The elegant and light drawing room with its classical fireplace, is lit through deep sash windows and extends into a bow with curved French windows opening to the south facing terrace. The comfortable sitting room has a fireplace with a Clearview wood burning stove and door opening to an inner hallway off which is the garden room which extends across the front of the south facing façade of the house and provides a wonderful sitting and dining area.
The traditional bespoke fitted kitchen has a four door gas fired AGA, along with fitted fridge, freezer and other appliances. It extends into an attractive breakfast room from where there is a connecting door to the formal dining room. This was once the butlers hall and has retained the servant bells and the original fire surround. A back hall, utility room and spacious cellar concludes the ground floor accommodation.
Upstairs there is a galleried landing off which leads the supremely gracious master bedroom with the original marble fireplace, fitted cupboards, deep windows and adjoining dressing room and shower room, (also plumbed for a bath if required). Two further double bedrooms, one with en suite shower room, are served by a large family bathroom with Jacuzzi bath.
The back staircase leads back down to the kitchen or up to the second floor where there are four further bedrooms, the main three of which have deep sash windows framing the far reaching views to the south and are served by a Jack and Jill bathroom with a slipper bath. A further room is presently utilised as an office.
Court Yard Cottage
This sits to the rear of the house with a pretty lawned garden to the front and access to a courtyard to the rear. It has a sitting room, fitted kitchen, two bedrooms and a shower room.
Accessed through the cobbled courtyard and above the double garage, the Tower is an attractive one bedroom house with an open plan living room and kitchen and a bedroom with shower room above.
Both cottages lend themselves to staff accommodation or holiday lets, but have been rented on short hold tenancies. Both are sold with Vacant Possession.
The house is approached through impressive wrought iron electric gates opening to a gravelled driveway which leads up through an avenue of trees to a sweep to the front of the house. Gravel pathways lead between stocked borders and well manicured lawns to the tennis court, wildlife pool and a woodland walk down to the walled vegetable garden and post and railed arena. To the south of the house is a paved terrace and a lawn extending to a ha ha giving uncompromised views of the parkland beyond.
The drive continues round to the back where there is ample parking and access to the cobbled courtyard along with a range of outbuildings beyond. These embrace four stables at present along with a tack and feed room. There are further stores and the former carriage house provides garaging. A part open bay barn with two store rooms provides further storage and garaging.
