Situated in the south Shropshire village of Clunton and enjoying countryside views, is this superb opportunity to own a characterful Grade II* listed farm house along with four barns (with lapsed planning) set in a private courtyard, with gardens and small paddock. The potential for investment or holidays lets creates a fantastic business opportunity.

Introduction

A beautiful Grade II* listed farmhouse with as yet undeveloped courtyard barns, which are steeped in history. The farmhouse is set in the courtyard setting, which includes a former Malt House, a timber framed barn and extensive cowsheds, which previously held planning permission to be converted into residential property, ideal for holiday lets.

Property Description

The main farmhouse has been lovingly restored by the current owners, and is offered to the market beautifully restored, with exposed timbers, flagstone flooring and stone inglenook fireplaces, wooden floors and lots of love. Whilst not large the farmhouse has a feeling of stepping back in time. Like all good farmhouses I will take you in through the rear door, into a welcoming hallway, with guest cloakroom in front of you which is set out as a wet room, with toilet, the beginning of a wonderful journey. Turn right into the kitchen which is like walking into the old curiosity shop, with bespoke antique units, including an old oak floor to ceiling cupboard, Belfast sink, LPG 5 ring cooker, with electric oven, stairs rising to the first floor, and another oak door which leads you to the splendid dining room.

The dining room has a huge inglenook fireplace with thick stone wall sides, original bread oven and seating. Windows to both front and rear; over your impressive courtyard, or beautiful far reaching garden. The flagstone flooring is underfloor heated, and there are old fashioned radiators upstairs. A small step down leads you into the main hallway, with the original oak door, stairs to the cellar which has been converted into a magnificent cheese making room, a wonderful prep kitchen or kitchen to store jams and preserves, with good head height and flagstone flooring. From the main hall is the sitting room, which houses another inglenook fireplace, with inset oil fired stove, exposed timber flooring and leaded light windows to both front and rear, and further staircase which leads to bedroom two. The stairs from the kitchen leads to a galleried landing, which could become additional living space if required. Bedroom three is currently used as a dressing room, but is a single bedroom with window to side aspect. The landing opens up into bedroom one with a vaulted ceiling which just takes your breath away as it rises up to the apex of the roof. The Master bedroom shares an en-suite with bedroom two having a roll top bath with ball and claw feet an antique wash basin and further door leading to a separate toilet with wood seat and high level cistern, inglenook fireplace, beamed ceiling . Bedroom two is very similar in style to the master bedroom, and the whole experience is worthy of any period magazine, it is a truly wonderful family home.

Garden

A wonderful garden stretches before you at the rear of the property, with box hedging and stone pathways, a side terrace and large patio, stoned seating areas, herb garden and lawn. A kissing gate leads into the small paddock, and the views continue to include views of both the Clunton Coppice and Clun Valley. With a myriad of fruit trees, this small project of the out-buildings will create a beautiful, and wonderful small country estate.

The Outbuildings

The Malt House/Granary

The current owners used to run a very successful antiques business from the Malt House, which is arranged over two and a half floors and includes a bothy with its cobbled stoned flooring and stable door. The exposed timbers in the roof and walls, make the imagination run wild when you think of ways to convert this into a magnificent holiday cottage, or try with a good architect to join the two, thus creating a wonderful large family home. Attached to the The Malt house is Old Farm's utility room, with a further toilet, and along with the main house has been done in keeping with the period and style of the home. The Malt house and other outbuildings previously had listed planning consent, which has now lapsed.

Through the five bar gate is a pole barn with separate entrance which once again had previous planning to create a new build barn style house.

To the front of Old Farm is a cow shed and separate barn, which along with the previous planning was to be turned into garaging and a further detached dwelling. This is a project if wanted, and one which will end of being one of the most impressive small estates in Shropshire. Cobb Amos are delighted to be able to offer this to the market, and more than happy to share the experience with potential purchasers.
