A Substantial Home With A Sense Of Place

02/10/2019

This substantial five bedroom house effortlessly blends and compliments the Welsh countryside surrounding it within the pretty and peaceful hamlet of Deytheur.

Deytheur Grange is less than three miles south of Llansantffraid, where local services can be found. It is within easy commuting distance of towns including Shrewsbury, Oswestry and Welshpool; while Chester is an hour’s drive.

Partially laced in climbers, this house beckons, breaking into a warm welcome when stepping across the threshold to the hallway. Here light plays on the parquet flooring with double doors leading to a short flight of stairs to a reception area overlooking the garden, and opening to the drawing room.

Magnificent Space For Entertaining 

A traditional fireplace is flanked by windows, while a conservatory engages with the main garden. The dining room links through double doors to the drawing room, opening up a magnificent space for entertaining – with the kitchen directly linked to the ding room and the hallway.

From the kitchen the family room links to a pergola, while the utility is also adjacent to the kitchen and provides external access. On the first floor the master suite incorporates bathroom and dressing room, the guest room is also en-suite, while an additional three bedrooms share a family bathroom with bath and shower.

Charlie Giffard, Balfours Associate Partner, Country House Sales comments: “Deytheur Grange is a substantial family home full of character; it is surrounded by a large garden and gravel forecourt; also benefitting from a double garage.” Balfours estate agents Shrewsbury are marketing the property with a guide price of £480,000, call 01743 353511.

A weekend of extraordinary flavours, new foodie experiences and a great time is how Balfours Ludlow sales manager, Scott Kemsley, described Ludlow Food Festival.

When we are marketing or letting properties, at Balfours we are ever mindful of the important hub the kitchen and outdoor entertaining space have become – as has the proximity of a property to good local eateries. Today food and beverage excellence are part of a lifestyle package so many aspire to.”
