Situation: East View House offers an incoming purchaser the opportunity to buy a beautifully finished house, ready to move straight into. The property is entered via the front porch into the hallway, with a WC cloakroom and closet. This flows into the open dining area with a lovely bay window looking out over the gardens. To the left is the large 18 x 24ft drawing room with French windows leading out to the terrace and garden beyond.
To the right of the dining room is the utterly charming open-plan family/ kitchen room. A granite worktop to the large island, space for informal dining at the garden end of the room, along with top of the range appliances, as part of a fully integrated kitchen make it stand out.
The kitchen also boasts oak bi-fold doors leading out to the garden terrace. A Velux window, plus a further door and window with fitted window seat, provide ample light into the room. Adjacent is the large separate office / study with window to the front. The fitted utility room also leads from the kitchen and links the main house to the annexe.
Upstairs, there is a large master bedroom suite with tremendous views down the garden to the river, cleverly split to provide an open dressing area with extensive fully fitted quality wardrobes and drawers and a large master bath and shower room.
All the bedrooms have lovely countryside views whether at the front or rear. Bedroom 2 has floor to ceiling fitted wardrobes and a modern en suite shower room, bedroom 3 has a separate dressing room leading to a bathroom beyond and there is a further double bedroom with the family bathroom opposite.
The Annexe has its own entrance via the sitting room and has a fully equipped kitchen and WC cloakroom downstairs, a separate staircase leading to two double bedrooms and a fitted family shower room upstairs. The main house and annexe can be left open on both floors to form one home or doors closed to separate.
Outside, there is a detached double garage, currently fitted out as a home office with kitchenette and WC cloakroom. This has a separate business telephone and broadband connection. There is planning permission W2006/0085 for the building to be converted to a two storey building, with a garage below.
There are extensive grounds including ample space to park at the front and side of the house on a gravel drive with brick pillars and iron gates. The landscaped garden at the rear leads down to the River Meese where one can relax in the summer house or sit on the deck to enjoy the tranquillity of the Shropshire countryside.
