Choosing the right photographs for this residence was difficult; there are so many lovely rooms and generally, just so many nice features that the brochure does not do it justice! The current owners have sympathetically renovated this Georgian house over time but have remembered to retain as many period features as possible. Shelley Cottage is well known in the village as it was once the village shop. Since then, it has also been a B&B, attracting guests who wanted to explore Staffordshire, although now it is the most perfect warm and cosy family home. This is a large house, and it has been impeccably maintained throughout. Some of the standout features of this house include a lounge with a large open fire, a formal dining room, breakfast kitchen leading to a garden room, large multi room basement, three first floor double bedrooms one of which offers a luxury en-suite shower room and a family bathroom, whilst the top floor of this home is reserved for the master bedroom suite with a large bedroom and a well-designed dressing room/en-suite. Behind the main family house is an attached self-contained one-bedroom cottage which is currently let out under the government’s rent a room scheme for £500 per month. Externally, this property does not disappoint either, with a well-designed mature cottage garden featuring a large entertaining area and permanent garden pizza oven. There are also numerous outbuildings, a driveway and a garden studio/office. Shelley Cottage is located in a beautiful rural area, enjoying convenient access to neighbouring villages and larger towns including the County Town of Stafford and the City of Lichfield both of which provide an array of amenities including shops, bars and restaurants. It should also be mentioned that Cannock Chase, an area of outstanding natural beauty, is also on the property’s door step and this will certainly interest home owners who like the great outdoors as there are numerous walking tracks as well as some of the UK’s best mountain biking routes. By now you really must be eager to dial our number and book a visit to this remarkable home.
