Woodhouse Farmhouse, Pontesbury

Having featured on the old Tithe map, part of this historic country house dates back to 1839 and retains many of its original features.

“With its long history, this cosy country farmhouse provides a rare opportunity to purchase a private yet very accessible home overlooking the Shropshire Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty,” said Charlotte Rogerson, chartered surveyor handling the sale at the Shrewsbury office of Berrys


The modern interior of the farmhouse sits perfectly alongside the mix of wooden and quarry tiled flooring, timber beams and the inglenook fireplace which hosts a log burner. The farmhouse kitchen is centrally located within the property with breakfast room adjacent making this the heart of the home.

The ample accommodation offers the luxury of an en suite with every bedroom and the master bedroom benefits from its own ornate spiral staircase which was commissioned especially for Woodhouse Farmhouse. Having been generously extended over time, the rooms flow effortlessly creating a light and spacious home.

In a picturesque and secluded location, the farmhouse is surrounded by fields and 0.5 acres of mature gardens, containing a small orchard of apple, plum, damson and fig trees. Capturing the morning sun, the most recent addition to the property is a garden room which provides access directly from the house to a patio area. With stunning views of the rolling Shropshire Hills, this is a perfect area for entertaining.


Approximately one-acre of additional land is also offered with this country home directly adjacent to the mature gardens which is currently cropped but will be laid to pasture providing a blank canvas in this property’s new chapter.

Pontesbury is one of the largest villages in Shropshire and has a medical practice, dentist surgery, butcher, police station, post office and library among many other facilities. The independent shops sell local produce and alongside a variety of other restaurants within the village, there is a choice of three pubs which all provide a relaxed atmosphere for food and drink. There are also many countryside walks covering Earls Hill and Pontesford Hill and the Stiperstones slightly further afield.

There is an excellent range of schools within easy reach both in the state and private sectors.
