Timber framed character in heart of village

23/06/2017

One of Minsterley’s most picture perfect timber framed houses has been launched to the market by Scott Kemsley of Balfours.

The four bedroom grade II listed home comes with garden and a large barn providing garaging and significant internal space.

Says Scott: “Brook House is a gem of a property which dates back to the 17th century and has been thoughtfully and extensively restored optimising wonderful period features, whilst ensuring lifestyle comforts. It is also situated in the heart of the village within walking distance to the primary school, village store, public house and petrol station.”

The ground floor comprises three reception rooms - a bespoke kitchen diner, utility and cloak room and bathroom. On the first floor the master bedroom benefits from en-suite facilities, while fitted wardrobes feature in one of the three other bedrooms.

“Among Brook House’s period features are an inglenook fireplace, oak floorboards and exposed studwork and beams. A very precious bit of heritage is to be found in the dining room, which has a naïve painting showing,” Scott adds.

Outside, in addition to the barn, there is a large garden and parking for up to five cars. Pontesbury is just 1.5 miles, while Shrewsbury and Telford are 10 and 24 miles respectively. Brook House is marketed by Balfours with a guide price of £340,000. For more information call Scott Kemsley on 01743 353511.
