Description
The Old Farm House is a beautifully presented family home on a generous 0.6 acre plot, within five miles of the historic market town of Shrewsbury. The site includes generous gardens, ample parking, a car port and two outbuildings ideal for conversion (subject to planning).

An entrance hallway leads into both the sitting room and dining room, with both being excellent places to entertain, and enjoy privately. The sitting room focuses around an open fire with bespoke decorative features including a display cabinet recessed into a stone wall. The house centres around a stunning, stone-built inglenook fireplace, beautifully exposed in the dining room with an original timber mantle. A snug, off of the dining room, offers a slightly less formal living area, with a gas fire providing additional heating. The kitchen/diner was extended by the current owners creating a substantial space, ideal for entertaining, and with French doors opening to an East facing patio, a great place to enjoy a sun drenched morning coffee. The bespoke light oak kitchen units and island are topped with granite worktops, and also include a sunken, Belfast, double sink. To the rear of the property, a large pantry offers additional kitchen storage and the utility includes a shower unit, w.c. and two basins.
On the first floor, three bedrooms all have built in storage as well as use of two bathrooms and a separate w.c. A further bedroom on the second floor allows access to two large storage rooms, both with the potential of conversion into additional living spaces.

Owing to the current owners love of gardening, the grounds are suitably stocked with a variety of mature trees and shrubs, and borders overflowing with colourful flowers and herbs. There are several fruit trees including two Bramley apple and a Victoria plum and for fellow keen gardeners there is a greenhouse and a storage shed attached to the car port. A substantial patio is a fantastic place to appreciate the garden as well as a smaller patio to the side of the property.

To the front, a large gravelled parking area allows parking for a number of vehicles as well as a brick and timber carport, providing covered space for two further vehicles. Two outbuildings adjoining the parking area including The Old Dairy, which is predominantly used as a storage space, and a two storey barn with two storage/workshop areas, and an office space to the first floor. Both buildings offer the potential of conversion (subject to planning) to holiday lets, for business use, or additional living accommodation to the main house.

The property has been well maintained including the installation of uPVC double glazing throughout most of the property. An oil-fired boiler provides central heating and hot water with separate immersion heater, if required. The gas fire in the lounge is LPG fired. All of the outbuildings have power and lighting.
