Handsome period property in Shropshire

Patton House was built in 1801 and sits in a wonderful, elevated position within 37 acres of beautiful grounds, with magnificent panoramic views over the spectacular surrounding countryside.

Typical of its period, the property has well-proportioned square rooms and high ceilings.

The morning room, which lies adjacent to the kitchen, has a wonderful illuminated Victorian glass window and slate floor along with French doors out to the garden.

The ‘working’ area of the house is positioned to the rear: the utility room has lots of storage and a large built in drying cupboard. Beyond the utility room there is a useful study/home office and a shower room – the rear porch/boot room provides additional access to the courtyard. This is an exceptionally useful and versatile area which could be adapted for a variety of purposes
