Sidway Hall Farmhouse is situated on the border of Shropshire and Staffordshire making it ideal for commuters working further afield. The M6 is a mere eight miles away, the county town of Stafford has a main train link to London and there are a number of international airports within a 90 minute drive. However the tranquil and rural location make it perfect for those wishing to enjoy a peaceful life in beautiful countryside.  

Just three miles south, the village of Loggerheads benefits from a range of facilities including small supermarket, post office, butcher, takeway and restaurant, pub and primary school. The charming village of Woore, a mere two miles away, boasts pubs, village shop and primary school. More extensive amenities, including secondary schools, doctors' surgery and leisure facilities are to be found in both Market Drayton and Madeley and the larger towns of Shrewsbury, Telford and The Potteries. The busy town of Nantwich, only 11 miles away, has a generous selection of interesting, independent shops and boutiques along with coffee shops and brasseries.  There is also a wealth of educational facilities in the area, including the renowned Keele University.

For those interested in horses, there are a number of equestrian facilities in the vicinity and a plethora of quiet country lanes and bridlepaths for peaceful riding whilst the nearby Maer Hills provide extensive walking and dog exercising opportunities.  

This elegant and impressive Georgian period property offers spacious and versatile accommodation over two floors and, with some tender loving care, could easily be returned to a substantial family home. 

The property was rebuilt in the 1850s and as with many properties of this era it benefits from well-proportioned rooms with high ceilings and larger than average picture- style windows. In addition the majority of the ground floor rooms have original quarry-tiled floors or oak floorboards.
The house is accessed via a black and white timbered porch which leads to the main entrance hall. From the hall there  is access to the main reception rooms which include a dining room with period fireplace and oak floors and a substantial sitting room with impressive inglenook fireplace housing a log-burning stove. The expansive farmhouse kitchen, with five-door AGA, is found to the rear of the house and is in need of a complete re-fit.  It is complemented by an adjoining large utility room and a study which could equally be reconfigured as a rear entrance and boot room.

To the first floor there are five bedrooms and a family   bathroom.  Original stairs, which are currently boarded off, rise to the second floor and this attic space could offer   further bedrooms if required.  The house has been occupied by tenants over recent years and, as a result, Sidway Hall Farmhouse would undoubtedly benefit from some modernisation and improvement to return this lovely property to its former and original glory as a much loved family home.

Extensive mature lawned gardens are found to the front and one side of the house.  Of particular note in the garden is an unusual Indian Bean tree which neither comes from India nor grows beans but does have an attractive spreading habit. For the horticulturalists, the Dorothy Clive Gardens, a wartime garden of great repute is close by. Beyond the garden is  access to the paddock which would be ideal for extension of the garden, creation of a vegetable patch or grazing for a pony or other livestock. The property as a whole currently extends to one acre, although additional land may be available by separate negotiation.

Sidway Hall Farmhouse sits in a commanding elevated position. The adjacent original farm buildings have been developed into residential dwellings and the farmhouse is technically semi-detached as the adjoining former cheeseroom has been converted into a dwelling.  However the property is located in such a manner that it is not overlooked and its outlook is predominantly to the front over its own garden, paddock and neighbouring farmland.  It is rare to find a property in such a peaceful location which is part of a small development yet has an uninterrupted view across farmland.
