It's safe to say that this one's a keeper! This spectacular home is a real grand design and sits in as secluded a spot as you will see! Positioned at the top of a 1.5 mile drive, in a plot of around 14.5 acres, with absolutely no neighbours other than any animals inhabiting the woodland, this property is a one off and the perfect juxtaposition of contemporary architecture with period features you might expect from a building that dates back in parts to 1870.
The Keepers Cottage stands overlooking the Earl of Harroby's estate of Sandon, Staffordshire with views of historic monuments, the Trent Valley and beyond. It has such seclusion and incredibly remote feel, yet is only 4 miles from Stafford town centre where the west coast main line provides a direct train every half hour to London Euston, Manchester and Liverpool.
Designed for family living, 15m of 2.5m high bifold doors overlook the south facing rear garden including a 200 square metre patio in full view of the open plan living. Children can enjoy freedom to roam, ride quad bikes, ponies and light camp fires. The peaceful woodland that wraps the rear of the property boasts more than 50 English Oaks and supports Woodpeckers, Owls and Buzzard families. What better a location to bring up your family?!
The accommodation measures over 3000 square feet with open plan living and under floor heating on the ground floor, powered by a ground source heat pump. Comprising an entrance hall, sitting room, study and huge lounge diner with wood burning stove and two sets of bi-fold doors opening to the patio. A recess opens off to a magnificent high specification kitchen which in turn opens off to both a living area and conservatory, both with their own bi-fold doors. There is also a utility room and guest WC. Upstairs are four double bedrooms, including three bedroom suites with their own bathrooms, picture windows and the largest two boasting dressing areas.
Outside, the plot of 14 acres includes pasture, formal gardens and woodland. A sweeping drive leads up to the property where a large forecourt provides ample parking. There is also a 50m zip wire and a menage area / sports arena 70 x 25m for anyone with equestrian interests.
