Perfect for a garden lover
Great spaces for an artist's studio
Why are you still looking for your ideal home? Probably because you haven't yet seen Willowdene. In a setting every bit as peaceful and idyllic as the name suggests, your new home could be this modern retreat away from the noise and nuisance of city living. In the heart of the Staffordshire countryside, Willowdene sits atop a secluded plot looking out over your own quarter acre of established garden with mature shrubs and trees, timeless lawns and even its own stream - which hosts duckling from the neighbouring pond come summer.
To call this place a two-bed detached bungalow would be a massive disservice because it couldn't be further away from the cookie cutter estate properties that the description calls to mind. What you have here is a corner of tranquillity, complete with a stylish home that has a beautiful flow throughout. All of the rooms are bright and airy, and each has its own vista - none more spectacular than that in the living room where the almost full height windows give uninterrupted views across the stunning Moddershall Valley. It is from those windows – or even from the wrap-around balcony outside - where in the summer you will sit and watch herons come and go, and in the winter you'll marvel at the beautiful frosty landscape whilst curled up in front of the log burning fire.
Do not underestimate the amount of functional as well as habitable space that comes with Willowdene. In addition to the two double ground floor bedrooms, the converted loft with its dormer window is an amazing space which could be used as anything from a third bedroom to a crafter's dream studio. For the collectors or car enthusiasts among you there is plenty of space in the shape of a large cellar and two brick garages. In addition, there are yet more rooms to retire to in the garden in the form of a large glass greenhouse and a bespoke summerhouse, ideal for tending cuttings, sketching the beautiful surroundings or relaxing with a good glass of red as the sun gets low.
Not for nothing are the winding lanes surrounding Willowdene home to the area's most prestigious luxury spa – Moddershall Oaks. And yet you remain a short, fuss-free hop from both Stone and Stoke town centres. Finally, as if anything more were required, The Boar Inn – a quintessential English country pub complete with watermill – is a stone's throw away.
If you were to ask people to describe their happily-ever-after home, most of them would describe something very similar to Willowdene. We recommend you book your viewing before you have a chance to regret it.
