Secluded woodland property in Shropshire

Oak Lodge is a charming period house built in 1853 and extended in the 1970s. The property offers spacious accommodation with lots of period features including exposed beams and feature fireplaces.

Reception rooms are good family spaces and equally suitable for entertaining, and include the sitting room, dining room and a snug. The kitchen/breakfast room has double doors out to decking which overlooks the grounds.

A flight of stairs leads up to the landing, which leads to the master bedroom suite, and in addition there are three further bedrooms on the first floor, plus a family bathroom. One bedroom is currently used as a home office.

Plans have been drawn up to extend the house to provide further accommodation on both floors, and copies are available from the agent.

Outside, the surrounding woodland provides an extremely pretty setting extending to around 5.7 acres and includes two paddocks, many areas of mature trees, a pool and woodland walks. In spring the grounds and woodland are full of daffodils, while wood anemones and bluebells.

All sporting rights are in-hand. The larger of the two brooks, the Hopton Brook has single-bank fishing rights and is stocked with lots of small wild brown trout, while the Tean Brook is a naturally spring-fed pool which holds carp, roach and rudd. Both brooks meet at the bottom end of the property at the Junction Pool, just above the Hay Bridge.

Oak Lodge is within fifteen minutes’ drive from Cleobury Mortimer and Tenbury Wells which have good everyday facilities, and Ludlow is just over ten miles distant for further amenities.

The guide price is £625,000. For further information please contact Strutt & Parker on 01584 873 711 or visit
