Eardington Manor, which is in School Lane, is ready for inspection by prospective buyers from 11am to 12pm. However, they should have £1,325,000 ready if they would like to put in a bid.

The exquisite country house is set in the heart of the village of Eardington, about a mile and a half away from Bridgnorth.

It is in grounds of around four and half acres, which includes a kitchen garden and a paddock.

It actually offers more than one residence as it comes with a two-bedroom coach house.

Built along classical Georgian lines, the Manor has a grand feel to it with decorative ceilings and cornices, architraves, sash windows and shutters. It also has an orangery to the west of the drawing room which makes a lovely summer dining room. The entrance hall is oak floored with an impressive staircase.

The drawing room and orangery feature an open fire, shutters and patio doors onto a terrace. There is a morning room with shutters, bay window with doors and open fireplace. A formal dining room has an open fireplace, shutters and display cabinets.

In the kitchen there is a two-oven oil fired AGA, cherry wood fitted kitchen units with island and a walk-in pantry with units.

A three-bay cellar has traditional cold settles.

Towards the back of the house there is a study/family room, boot room, guest cloakroom and laundry with fitted cupboards.

Upstairs there are six generous bedrooms on the first floor. Two of them have en suite bathrooms . There is also a house bathroom and separate toilet.

On the second floor there are six more bedrooms, a bathroom and storeroom.

The Coach House is to the back of the house. It is detached and has a kitchen, living room, dining room, two bedrooms and bathroom.

Eardington Manor is surrounded by wrought iron gates with a sweeping drive to the front which is flanked by an extensive lawns with trees and shrubs.

Beyond is the walled garden. This has an extensive greenhouse and well established vineyard. Another gate to the back leads to the Coach House.

For anyone fancying a dip, there is a heated outdoor pool situated in a sheltered position at the back of the Coach House. The paddock beyond is just under three acres.

Useful outbuildings surround a courtyard, including three garages, workshops, three stables, a log store and other storage.

The village of Eardington has been inhabited from a very early age, evidenced by the Iron Age settlement unearthed close to it.

There are more shopping and leisure facilities available in Bridgnorth and more extensively in Wolverhampton and Telford. Astbury Golf Course and the Severn Valley Railway are also within two miles.
