This impressive and extremely private detached family home has been extensively renovated and modernised to exacting standards and is set within an outstanding and private plot. The Mount sits just outside the village of Cressage, close to historic Shrewsbury and Much Wenlock.

The principal house is a substantial property of 5,800sqft, and is approached via a sweeping driveway to ample space for parking several cars to the front and side, along with access to the paddock.

The sitting room has a log burner and built-in bookcases, as well as ornate period décor. Further along is a sizeable dining room with enough space to comfortably entertain; continuing through large French windows into the large conservatory.
