Modern living in a country home on the Staffordshire border

Published July 26th, 2016

An impressive, modernised five bedroomed farmhouse with more than four acres of land is on the market on the Staffordshire/Shropshire border with Berrys.

Park Oak Farm, Offoxey Road, Bishops Wood has a large garden, stables and modern workshop/garage and the agent is inviting offers  in excess of £650,000.

The house would be suitable for an extended family and with stables and land fits the bill perfectly as an equestrian property.

“At first glance, Park Oak Farm could be seen as being a purpose built and modern, executive country home,” said Philip Robinson, residential agency manager at Berrys.

“An impressive conservatory extends the entire length of the house on its south side overlooking the patio and pristine lawn. However, if you look further, you find that this former farmhouse retains many of its original, 18th century features.

“And furthermore, this property would readily lend itself to equestrian or a small Livestock enterprise with in excess of four acres of level land and two traditional stables and a new workshop/carport,” he said.

On the first floor there is a master bedroom with dressing room and en suite bathroom plus a bedroom with en suite shower room, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The house is situated adjacent to Bishops Wood village on the Shropshire/Staffordshire border, approximately eight miles north west of Wolverhampton and 3.5 miles from the M54 Motorway. The area is steeped in history and enjoys panoramic views of Cannock Chase and Belvide Reservoir/Nature Reserve

There is a close knit community spirit and active social life in Bishops Wood which has a church and a well-used modern village hall with an extensive range of play equipment for children. The traditional country pub, The Royal Oak, is named after the famous oak tree at nearby Boscobel House – now an English Heritage attraction.
