From House Beautiful

Looking to escape to the country? An impeccable house with over three acres of land and eight grand bedrooms is for sale in Shrewsbury, Shropshire, for £975,000.

Charlton Hill House was built in 1660 and extended again in the 19th Century. The current owners have lived in the home for past 37, but now the property is looking for a new family to move in.

The inside space is extensive, with four primary reception rooms, a large kitchen/breakfast room, three bathrooms, eight spacious bedrooms and plenty of storage nooks. Whether you like to entertain, or simply want somewhere your family can relax after a busy day, then look no further, as Charlton Hill House ticks all the boxes.

Wonderfully, you’ll find plenty of historical features inside, including unique panelling from Eyton Hall in the dining room, beautiful fortified doors, roaring fireplaces, impressive high ceilings (especially on the first floor) and an original cellar, too.

The interiors have a Downton Abbey-esque feel to them, thanks to rich patterns, striking colours, textures and as-grand-as-can-be decor. While the inside taps into the property’s history, there is plenty of scope for new homeowners to add their own flair to the home, too.

Step outside and you’ll never want to come back in. There are enchanting tree-lined walkways, a wildlife-friendly woodland area, formal lawn areas, stone outbuildings (including a former brew house, hay barn and dovecote), plus lots of potential to spruce it up as you wish. Currently, there isn’t a patio or decking area, but there is certainly the space to add one in.

As for the area? Charlton Hill House is found on the outskirts of the hamlet of Donnington, just a short distance from the historic village of Wroxeter. Surrounded by the beautiful Shropshire countryside, the house has magnificent views over the Seven Valley to Wenlock Edge and the Welsh Hills beyond. You’ll want to get your hands on some well-made walking boots: the area is made for exploring.

Tempted to make this house your own? This property is currently on the market for £975,000 via Strutt & Parker.
