The Bembows, a five-bedroom property with views of the surrounding countryside and towards Long Mynd and the Shropshire Hills, is located within the village of Childs Ercall.

The property comprises two reception rooms, a sitting room and a spacious living room, which has a decorative fire surround thought to be reclaimed from a church. There are double doors leading outside onto the patio seating area and gardens.

The family kitchen, which has tiled flooring, has oak fitted units, granite worktops and a four-oven AGA with an electric companion. A useful utility room leads off with a separate door leading outside and a separate boiler room. The property has had a conservatory added with underfloor heating and a room, currently used as a gym, which could serve as an office.

On the first floor the landing area provides enough space for a further sitting area or office. There are four double bedrooms on this floor, with a family bathroom, a separate WC and a separate wet room with shower. The second floor has the principal suite which has a double bedroom, a walk-in dressing area and an en-suite shower room.

Accessed via double electric gates, The Bembows is situated on a no through road, elevated above the village of Childs Ercall. A gravel driveway provides ample parking, with steps and a paved path to access the main house. There is a useful log store, a garden store and a covered porch which also provides access to a brick outbuilding which could be a home office.

Peter Daborn, head of residential sales for Savills in Shropshire, says: “The Bembows is a really handsome family home that has plenty of space both inside and outside and has maintained its character with some original features. There is a real sense of versatility to the property too, with opportunities to create different living spaces within the home.”
