Ryelands is a wonderful period house in established gardens in North Shropshire, perfect for family life. The property was bought by the present owners from the Earl of Bradford’s estate over thirty years ago. The property is believed to date from the 18th century and has evolved to include an extension in 1992.

Period features include oak doors, polished wood floors and exposed beams while modern features include double glazing and oil-fired central heating.

Accommodation includes a pretty sitting room with a wood-burning stove and the dining room has French doors out to the terrace. The main staircase leads to a galleried landing lit by a glass atrium off which is the guest bedroom and the master suite. Three further bedrooms are served by a family bathroom and an additional staircase.
