Country house with a view for retirement idyll
Leading Midlands contractor Morris Property has won a significant contract to build an elegant country house in Staffordshire, complete with external swimming pool, walled garden and orchard.
Harley Thorn House, a Georgian-style four-bedroom property near Stone, has been commissioned by private owners who wish to retire to the rural location.
It will feature a first-floor drawing room to give views over the countryside, a ground floor garden room, three bathrooms and a lift from the stone flag entrance hall to the first floor.
Work on the two-storey red brick and stone home has started this month and is due to for completion in mid-2021.
The property will replace a former farmhouse which was in a poor state of repair. A small outbuilding will be retained as a plant room and store and provide a bat loft for bats who roost at the site.
James West, Chief Operating Officer, at Morris Property, said: “We take pride in delivering quality developments, working with clients to realise their dream homes. This will be a substantial and elegant home with the kind of facilities and attention to detail that makes a home truly special.”
Craftsmen from Morris Joinery will produce all the windows and doors, and a feature oak staircase, as part of a £200,000-plus investment in bespoke joinery at the house.
Shrewsbury-based Morris Property is part of a fifth-generation family business group working in property investment and management, new build residential and commercial developments and restoration schemes.Back to news
