Shropshire – £2 million

Between the villages of Yockleton and Westbury, Stoney Stretton commands beautiful views of the Shropshire countryside. This elegant country house, which stretches to just over 7,000sq ft, provides an exceptional balance of both formal and informal rooms.

There are seven bedrooms and many original features have been maintained, including some which pre-date most of the hosue as it stands now: there’s a Jacobean staircase in the hall, which is thought to date back to 1635. Outside, there are formal gardens, fruit trees, a ‘pergoda’ and a Dutch barn. An array of ancillary buildings could be transformed into separate accommodation.

For sale with Savills. See more pictures and details about this property.

Situated in a gently elevated position, Syerston Hall is an outstanding example of Georgian architecture, with southerly views across the parkland. This Grade II-listed property boasts three elegant reception rooms, six bedrooms (three en-suite) and extensive cellars in the basement.
