Where: Stableford, Bridgnorth.

What: A substantial Edwardian house in an elevated position with lovely grounds, woodland and river frontage. Additionally, there is a lodge cottage with three bedrooms. The Folley was built in 1912 for the director of Sunbeam Cars, James Henry Bath.

Inside: The six bedroom house has elegantly proportioned room with period features including oak panelling and floors. There are superb views over the gardens and beyond to the Clee Hills. Special features include a squash court with viewing gallery and an integral annexe which runs over three floors. The property is in need of some modernisation. Folley Lodge, which may be bought as a separate lot, is a three bedroom cottage and paddock.

Outside: The mature gardens have a swimming pool, tennis court, wood and river frontage. Wrapping around the house is an orchard and kitchen garden. The tree-lined drive splits close to the house; one route goes the front of the property and a turning circle, the other to the garaging and other outbuildings and courtyard. There are fishing rights to the River Worfe.

Price: £1,400,000.
