This lovely looking country house in Stanton Long, near Ludlow, is a real treasure.
No, seriously, Treasure & Son of Ludlow is the name of the builder who has completed all of the works for the current owners of the property.
Called Little Thonglands, it has undergone a few changes over its many, many years. Parts of the house are believed to date from the 1400s but it has been carefully extended to provide generous family accommodation.
Almost as attractive as the house are its surroundings. Set in gardens of about 2.74 acres, it is nestled on the edge of the Corvedale, overlooking the Clee Hills.
Inside the house is an entrance hall with a rather unique cloakroom that has a stable style partition and box toilet.
There is a large kitchen/breakfast room, with French doors opening onto the terrace and view towards the hills, an outlook that many of the rooms share.
The kitchen is fitted with hand made units, including display units and a built-in desk facing the garden. There is an electric Aga oven and electric Companion Aga and gas hob. A generous larder has space for a fridge/freezer.
Accessed from the kitchen is a cosy sitting room with open fire.
The elegant dining room has hand-built display cabinets and sideboard, along with a wine cellar.
At the back of the house is a large drawing room with windows and doors that open out to the terrace, an open fire and hand-built display units.
A utility room with fitted units, and a store room complete the ground floor.
Upstairs the master bedroom suite has views over the hills and its own private bathroom with five piece suite bathroom and a walk-in wardrobe. There are a further four bedrooms to the first floor. Two have en suite bathrooms and one a dressing room. There is also a family bathroom.
On the second floor there are two more bedrooms, a bathroom and a separate toilet.
A long driveway create a favourable first impression of Little Thonglands. It splits right and left.
On the right hand side it leads to a parking area, and heads past a tennis court with an all weather grass surface.
On the left it heads to a double garage with storage above, garden store at the back and a greenhouse. Gardens extending round the house are mostly laid to lawn with a mix of shrubs and trees. A stone and gravel terrace is the ideal setting for alfresco dining, along with a pretty parterre garden and rose beds.
It is bordered by a low stone wall and there are steps down to the lawn with a further stone wall dividing it from the paddock. There is also a summer house fronted by stone paving and a rose covered pergola. Little Thonglands is well placed for access to Ludlow, Much Wenlock and Bridgnorth and all their amenities, including some good restaurants.
The towns of Shrewsbury, Telford and Wolverhampton are all within commuting distance.
