Full Details

This distinctive Grade II listed Georgian House is located in the popular Shropshire village of Maesbury Marsh, about 3 miles from Oswestry and within easy reach of routes towards Shrewsbury, Birmingham and Manchester.

Maesbury Marsh is an attractive village, close to the ancient border town of Oswestry, benefitting from the presence of two nursery schools and a pub, and the Montgomery Canal with its full servicing facilities and connections. A well-stocked farm shop lies within a short distance. Nearby Oswestry offers a wide range of amenities, with well-run societies catering for a wide range of interests. The local area is renowned for an excellent selection of educational facilities including Oswestry School, The Marches, Moreton Hall and Ellesmere College. Shrewsbury, sixteen miles to the south-east and full of history, has an excellent selection of specialist shops and amenities, including respected preparatory establishments as well as Shrewsbury High School and Shrewsbury School. Local road-links include the A483 and A5, offering routes north towards Manchester and south towards Shrewsbury, the M54 and Birmingham. The nearby railway station at Gobowen has direct services to Shrewsbury and Chester, with good onward connections to major cities. There is a straightforward route to Manchester Airport.

Dating back to Regency times, Wharfinger's House exhibits many of the beautiful features characteristic of a later Georgian property, providing spacious and stylish accommodation for gracious and comfortable living. High ceilings give the property a naturally bright and airy atmosphere.

The entrance opens to a splendid staircase and imposing window. At the front of the house the refined sitting room, where the canal manager once conducted his business, has an impressive fireplace with inset multi-fuel stove, two large sash windows containing much original glass and double doors to the garden. The dining room has an equally fitting fireplace and a large sash window giving views of the garden.

The country-style kitchen, like the hall, has its original oak floor, and is furnished with bespoke fittings carrying solid re-finished period oak worktops. The open plan layout makes the kitchen an excellent informal entertaining space, with a large sash window drawing an abundance of light into the room.

Upstairs, three double bedrooms are serviced by a tasteful family bathroom, with the main bedroom having its own en-suite shower-room. A large dressing room attached to the third bedroom makes an excellent storage space, complete with in-built shelving and hanging spaces; it has the potential for conversion to a further en-suite facility. All the bedrooms come with their original large sash windows and complete Coalbrookdale fireplaces.

The property's cellar has been impressively fitted as a dry and usable space, very suitable for storage and with the ready potential to house a wine cellar, hobby workroom, home-cinema or playroom.

To the front of the house are a low-maintenance, well-planted garden, together with a natural English stone-paved entertaining area, lawn, raised vegetable beds and a double-gated deep tarmac-surfaced parking area. The garden is enclosed by a period stone wall surmounted by an attractive bespoke trellis.

All the windows on the ground floor have their working shutters. A security system protects the house and its water supply is processed by a softener. The electrical system is protected by a recently-installed set of individual cut-outs. The pressurised Worcester water-heating equipment is contained entirely in the cellar.
