The Haberdashers is found in the small hamlet of Woodseaves just three miles from the historic town of Market Drayton and nine miles from the thriving and popular town of Newport. Both towns have a wide range of amenities including schools, shops, supermarkets, leisure facilities and doctors’ surgeries.

Within a 20-mile radius are Telford, Shrewsbury and Newcastle-under-Lyme, all of which offer a wider range of services.

The nearby popular village of Hinstock offers a range of local amenities including post office and shop, church, village hall, nursery and primary school and a pub. In addition the Four Alls Pub is only a short distance from the property.

The area is well served by private and state primary and secondary schools and the award-winning Harper Adams University is situated in nearby Newport with Keele University located in The Potteries just 15 miles north east. Furthermore the property is well placed for commuters with excellent road links and nearby rail links as well as a number of international airports.

Originally forming part of Avenue Farm the property is so named as the farm was originally one of four model farms in the area owned by The Haberdashers, a philanthropic group who utilised the return from their farming enterprises to support education in the area. Indeed Adams Grammar School in Newport is still in the same ownership.

Converted in 2016 this stunning barn conversion offers fabulous accommodation over two floors and skilfully combines the advantages of modern living with the attractive features of a building of this age. The majority of the rooms have vaulted ceilings allowing appreciation of the impressive timbers and there are a number of exposed brick walls and arches. These period features are complemented by modern touches such as underfloor heating, as well as cost saving measures including solar panels and a back boiler on the log burner.

The house is accessed through a substantial hallway.  A study and spacious living room are found to one end of the property whilst the impressive kitchen/dining/living area is found to the other end. The well-equipped kitchen is fitted with a handmade bespoke Anthony Lewis kitchen featuring a range of light oak and painted units with granite over and integrated appliances. This then opens in to a living and dining area which centres around a log burner and is undoubtedly the hub of the home offering the perfect place for socialising and enjoying family life.

The master bedroom suite has a private staircase, which affords access to this area only, ensuring a feeling of total seclusion and privacy. The two further bedrooms are found beyond the living space and comprise a bedroom with en-suite on the ground floor and an further bedroom with en-suite on the first floor. This space would be ideal for older children or alternatively could be altered to provide a separate living space for a dependent relative or family member.

The property is approached via a private, shared tree lined drive which leads to the private courtyard. This creates a feeling of peace and tranquillity immediately upon arrival. A small courtyard  area and grassed area is found to the rear of the house with well stocked borders and views over adjoining farmland.
