Situation: Ashford House lies on the High Street, in the centre of Church Stretton, within one of the most beautiful valleys in the South Shropshire Hills. The area offers great riding and many fine walks. A full range of services can be found in Church Stretton where there are restaurants, schools, doctor's surgeries and a railway station. A particularly scenic and sought after area of South Shropshire, the area provides a fantastic opportunity for a high standard of living.

Travel links within the area are good with the A49 linking to Shrewsbury and the A5 north via Oswestry towards Chester and east via the A5 / M54 to Telford, Wolverhampton and Birmingham. Church Stretton is on the main Manchester to Cardiff railway line. Regional International airports are at Liverpool, Manchester and Birmingham.

Ashford House is a truly unique Grade II listed property located in the heart of the Shropshire Hills. It offers superbly appointed and versatile accommodation, whilst retaining a wealth of period features, all lovingly restored and enhanced by the current owners.

The property boasts three spacious reception rooms on the ground floor including a dining room and sitting room with gas fires and a snug with a log burner. There is a large kitchen / breakfast room, with granite worktops, Belfast sink, an Aga and bespoke kitchen units. The bi-fold doors lead onto a period conservatory with views over the private walled garden. There is also access to a large lower ground floor workshop and wine room providing excellent additional storage.

On the first floor, there is a large master bedroom with en suite bathroom. A further three bedrooms and a large family bathroom also occupy the same floor.

The second floor comprises an exceptionally large attic, which is accessed off of the first floor landing. This offers the potential for further accommodation for a multitude of purposes including an annexe for guest quarters or perhaps even the opportunity for a bed and breakfast, private holiday let or home office.

Outside the property has a delightfully private walled garden set above the town's High Street. It is mainly laid to lawn with mature herbaceous beds and a number of fine yew trees. To the front of the house, there is a small garden with mature planting enclosed by original wrought iron fencing and a gate leading to the front door. To the side of the house there is a gated driveway leading to a secure, off-road parking area and double garage, currently being used as a kitchen utility room.

Directions: Approaching from the traffic lights on the A49, turn into the town centre and continue to the crossroads of High Street and Shrewsbury Road. Turn left along the High Street and Ashford House, 74 High Street, is positioned on the right-hand side.
