Enjoying a picturesque setting amidst tranquil Staffordshire countryside is Hollington House, an exquisite Georgian farmhouse set within established 1.25 acre grounds, offered with the benefit of no upward chain. A fine example of a period country residence, the Grade II Listed Hollington House is believed to date back to the early 1800s and showcases a wealth of beautifully retained features throughout, including character doors, reconditioned windows and a traditional reception hall and landing with original carved oak bannister. The traditional façade of this elegant period residence is complemented by extensive interiors serving well as a family home for the past 20 years, and there is additional potential to convert the generous loft space into further bedroom accommodation. Two large agricultural barns offer potential for development (subject to relevant permissions), and Hollington House lies within a generous plot laid to mature woodland, formal grounds and lawns which could easily be fenced off to create a paddock for smaller livestock.
This impressive Georgian residence is accessed via the traditional central reception hall, where doors lead into three well proportioned reception rooms, a spacious dining kitchen with Aga, boot room and laundry/cloakroom, with five double bedrooms to the first floor serviced by a family bathroom and guest en suite. From the fourth bedroom, a galleried staircase rises to a mezzanine style studio/occasional bedroom, and a door opens into the loft which comprises three large rooms offering ideal conversion potential (subject to listed buildings consent). Outside, a private drive leads to ample parkingto the rear aspect, and the wrap around plot is formed by tranquil formal gardens, lawns, private woodland and a productive kitchen garden, in addition to two large barns, all bordered by rolling countryside and farmland.
