Believed to date back to the 14th century and having recently undergone a scheme of sympathetic renovation and improvement, Eye Manor is an impressive Grade-II Listed Tudor house occupying a spectacular position in the rolling Shropshire countryside near to Shrewsbury and Much Wenlock.
A stunning armoured timber door opens into the entrance hall, showcasing the exposed stone side of the large inglenook fireplace which stands at the centre of the property. An inviting dual aspect drawing room features beautiful, exposed beams and a large Clear View stove within the inglenook. Beyond the drawing room is the South facing dining room with open fireplace and views over the grounds. Toward the Northern end of the house is a sitting room which also features a Clearview log burner. The kitchen has bespoke fitted units with oak worktops, an oil-fired Aga range and a useful separate pantry. There is an adjoining boot room which has access out to the walled courtyard.
The master bedroom suite is on the first floor and consists of a dual aspect bedroom with superb views, a dressing room, and luxurious en suite shower room. This room is accessed via its own oak staircase from the drawing room. The guest suite (accessed via the main staircase) has an en suite shower room.
On the second floor there are two vaulted double bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room, and the other served by the family bathroom. Of particular note is the bedroom toward the Southern end of the second floor which looks out toward the River Severn and surrounding countryside.
Approached via a long driveway, Eye Manor is surrounded by approximately 2.42 acres consisting of beautifully landscaped formal gardens and a generous paddock to the North. There are a number of areas closer to the house that provide excellent outdoor entertainment spaces, including a walled rear courtyard and a Southern terrace with veranda. Open views toward the Wrekin, the River Severn and the Shropshire Plains can be had from numerous positions within the grounds. A detached triple bay oak car port is located across the driveway from the property, with a log store adjacent.
