Property Snapshot

Swallows Rest retains a wealth of original character in terms of feature brickwork details and lovely original wooden beams. The property has a beautiful formal garden and stunning, uninterrupted, far-reaching views and fantastic potential for further development of the outbuildings.

The spacious and flexible accommodation is arranged over two floors and includes an entrance hallway, with a staircase rising to the first floor and an opening through to the wonderful open-plan kitchen dining room. A spacious living room and an inner hallway leading to an office/study, a utility room and a cloakroom complete the ground floor.

Upstairs, there is a master bedroom with its own ensuite and a further two double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Outside, there is a range of brick-built outbuildings creating a courtyard around the driveway, including a large workshop, two additional workshops, open stores and a single garage adjoining the main house. To the rear there are wonderful gardens leading out to open countryside, with incredible views of Chelmarsh Ridge and Knowle Hill.

Description
The property is approached off a village lane through private gated access onto a large, gravelled driveway courtyard, with parking for multiple vehicles.

The property is entered through a welcoming porch, with original quarry brick floor and additional access to the inner hallway on the left. Entering through the four foot wide hardwood door, featuring an insert stained glass Swallow, the hallway has wonderful oak effect Karndean floor that flows through into the large open plan kitchen and dining room. There is also an under stairs cloaks cupboard to the left and stairs rising to the first floor.

The kitchen dining room has triple aspect windows and double patio doors, flooding the space with natural light. The kitchen has a superb island centrepiece, with ivory shaker style kitchen cabinets with sensor LED plinth lighting and beautiful granite worktops. There is a large five-burner Leisure Cuisine Master range cooker, with four-ovens and a separate electric griddle, black glass splashback, a built-in microwave, an integrated one and a half bowl sink with chrome mixer tap, brushed chrome sockets with USB plugs and contemporary graphite grey column style radiators. The dining area has plenty of space for a large family dining table. The double patio doors, from the kitchen, lead out to the rear garden and to the left of the hallway.

From the open plan kitchen, you walk through the hallway and into a large living room, with a fantastic feature fireplace with an oak beam mantle, Clearview log burner and a lovely quarry brick hearth, which were saved from the original granary. There are two windows looking over the gardens and the stunning views toward Chelmarsh and the Severn Valley. This room also includes a central character oak beam running the width of the room.

From the living room you go through an inner hallway, which has an additional doorway out to the front driveway courtyard area, giving easy access to the downstairs cloakroom, utility room and a superb office space, with an exposed stone feature wall, a column radiator and wood effect tiled floor.

The utility room houses the recently fitted boiler and includes a grey towel warmer and space for a washing machine and a tumble dryer.

The cloakroom has a feature brick wall, a wall-hung vanity basin with cubist chrome mixer tap, a close coupled back to wall toilet pan, a tiled floor and a graphite grey towel warmer.

Both the office and the cloakroom benefit from electric underfloor heating.

First floor
From the hallway, stairs lead up to the spacious first-floor landing, with doors accessing the bedrooms and the family bathroom. All the bedrooms have great semi-vaulted high ceilings.

On the right-hand side is a fantastic large master bedroom and ensuite bathroom, with fitted cupboards and a vanity basin, a back to wall toilet pan and a large walk-in shower, with cubist mixer with handheld shower and overhead rain shower. There is also a curved chrome towel warmer. The window in the master bedroom overlooks the patio area and garden, with incredible views over the surrounding countryside. To the left side of the landing, there are two further double bedrooms, with the first bedroom also looking out over the rear garden. The third bedroom looks out to the right of the property and has a lovely, exposed character wishbone timber frame from the original granary.

The family bathroom has a white suite comprising a close coupled WC, a large double ended bath with a centre bath shower mixer, a wall hung vanity basin with cupboards underneath and a quadrant enclosure with a Mira Excel mixer shower.

Gardens and grounds
The patio doors from the kitchen lead out onto a block paved patio area, which is perfect for entertaining, with plenty of seating and leading through to an outbuilding, which could be used in a variety of ways, with the option to be converted to create a fantastic outdoor kitchen area.

Brick steps lead down to the formal lawned garden, with mature planting in various borders and incredible uninterrupted views of the surrounding countryside.

To the front of the property, there is an extensive selection of brick-built outbuildings that create a wonderful courtyard area around the driveway. To the left of the office, is an integrated garage that could potentially be opened up into the main property via the office/study. The garage has separate door access leading to an open store area. Next to this is the main outbuilding which currently consists of a very large workshop and then two further workshop/stores, with fantastic potential to be developed into additional accommodation, an office, a home gym and previously had planning for conversion into a separate dwelling, which has now expired.
