The hand-crafted staircase rises to the first floor from the sitting room: there are four bedrooms on the first floor and an elegant family bathroom with a roll-top bath. The second floor houses the master bedroom suite with a stylish sitting area which enjoys views from three sash windows.

The cellars are accessed from outside the property, and the grounds include a series of outbuildings and storage sheds, some of which are currently used as stables. To the rear is an area of lawn encircling the house and a raised patio area to one side. The gardens are bordered by mature trees and hedges. A small paddock of around an acre sits to the side and a further paddock is available by separate negotiation. The land with the house comes to over an acre.

Lower Hayton is a hamlet located just five miles outside Ludlow in Shropshire which has an excellent range of services and amenities.
