Rural Setting

St Peters House has some fine architectural features and additions from several eras, some of note are its impressive chimneys. A property of standing which offers not only a fabulous family home, but also the flexibility of extended family living, holiday let or rental income potential with the attached annexe. Set in the semi-rural village of Monkhopton in undulating countryside between the historic towns of Bridgnorth and Much Wenlock.

Much Wenlock, famous for the Wenlock Priory, the Wenlock Olympian Games (which inspired the Olympics) and Wenlock Edge which forms part of the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Bridgnorth, set on the banks of the River Severn which divides the town in to two and originally linked by the Victorian funicular railway and the "Donkey Steps", hence High Town and Low Town, was once a renowned busy fishing port. The bustling town has the Castle remnants, the ancient Cartway leading down to the Quayside, the cliffs and caves of Lavington Gardens, Severn Park and the Seven Valley Railway. Good local shopping, amenities and recreational facilities can be found in both towns with Bridgnorth still having regular Antique and local produce markets. The larger centres of Shrewsbury, Telford and Kidderminster, also with good road and rail links to Birmingham and London, are some 17.5, 14.5 and 19.5 miles away, respectively.

The House
The property is set off the lane and accessed via the red brick parking area to the front of the garage. The ornate wooden front door leads into the flagstone porch and on into the well-proportioned dining room which has dual aspect and a fine tiled fireplace. From here, the hallway leads to the sitting room which is full of character with beams, bay window and a wonderful feature fireplace housing a multi fuel stove.

The bespoke Pine kitchen, with its Aga, central island and interesting features including the original bread oven and ceiling hooks, opens in to the garden room that has access to the sun terrace and enjoys a lovely outlook to the garden and through the trees to the Church beyond.

From the hall, stairs lead down into the substantial cellar which originally would have been the working hub of this wonderful farmhouse with its own external access and now lends itself as a great storage area, or indeed as a games room and teenage den.

The office is sited in what would have been the entrance hall in a bygone era and has lovely outlooks of the garden and pond.

Stairs lead to the first-floor landing and the master bedroom which has plenty of wardrobes and an ensuite shower room, a further two double bedrooms, a large family bathroom and a single bedroom which is fully fitted with storage and is used by our clients as a hobby room. Stairs rise to the second floor where there are three attic rooms, one of which is being used as a guest bedroom with ensuite and has views out over the historic Church, one (which has restricted access and undeveloped) as storage, the other is currently used as a snug music room.

From the kitchen, a corridor with external access to the garden and rear leads to the laundry room housing the oil-fired central heating boiler and on to the separate attached annexe.

The annexe has a ground floor bedroom, its own entrance and large downstairs bathroom. A staircase leads up to a wonderfully light and airy open plan sitting and dining room with a good-sized kitchen area to the rear. This is a real asset and ideal as a holiday let, rental accommodation or for a dependant relative. The annexe enjoys its own parking area to the front and shares a part of the main garden to the rear.

Gardens & Grounds
The majority of the gardens of the principle house lie to the rear and are private and predominately laid to lawn with a garden pond and external electrics, whilst a BBQ area lies to the front of an enclosed kitchen garden with further sun terraces adjacent to the house and all of which are ideal for Al fresco dining.

From the outside of this property, one can appreciate the architecture of the building with the imposing chimneys and its rural setting overlooking the Church.

There is also a useful detached garage with plenty of parking to the front and rear, with the neighbouring properties having access from the drive at the front. In all, the grounds amount to 0.48 acres.
