What’s unique about this farm house and land? Ring fenced farm, two farmsteads, excellent roadside access and further main road links, internal lane providing excellent access to the remainder of the farm; it also boasts some truly outstanding views.
What business purpose could it have? What did the previous owners do? The farm is suited to arable and livestock production (mainly beef and sheep), sporting potential, farm steads are adaptable.
Is the house in good condition? Does it need doing up? The farmhouse is in great structural condition but may need modernising a bit. The farmhouse itself is very spacious with 5 bedrooms. It is also worth mentioning that the garden has some fantastic views over the beautiful Shropshire hills.
Could you tell me a bit more about the location? The farmhouse is close to the A49 providing excellent links to Shrewsbury, Ludlow and the wider road network. It also has excellent access from the farm lane onto a council maintained byway. The property is 13 miles away from the historic market town of Ludlow. Craven Arms railway station is only 6 miles away and provides connections to the North and South. Last but certainly not least, it is nestled in the Shropshire Hills providing excellent sporting potential and conversion of farm buildings for holiday lets or rentals.
Anything else that might be relevant? Potential for conversion of traditional farm buildings to benefit from outstanding views. Excellent access to local livestock markets.
