Fabulous lifestyle/equestrian opportunity with 12.74 acres (Lot 1).
Fir Tree Farm is an enchanting property, set in a wonderful rural idyll amidst the stunning countryside of the Shropshire Hills. It offers a wonderful opportunity to enjoy a rural lifestyle with equestrian facilities and is set in about 56 acres.
The property sits on the side of the Long Mynd, a heath and moorland plateau which is mostly owned and managed by the National Trust and enjoys the most magnificent views over the surrounding countryside. It has been within the same family for the last four generations and owned by our client since 1995.
The traditional, stone farmhouse could potentially be extended into the barn next door, with the necessary planning and building regulations. It currently offers charming accommodation set over two floors and benefits from original features including a stone inglenook fireplace which houses a Clearview stove, quarry tile floor, wooden beams and doors.
There are two reception rooms, with the dining room having a captivating picture window which enthralls you the moment you walk in. The bathroom adjoins the kitchen, which has been recently fitted and has a selection of white units incorporating a Zanussi oven and hob. A stable door leads to an outside dining and entertaining area which is protected by a conifer hedge but has two wonderful arches framing the splendid views. Upstairs there are three bedrooms, with the master having two walk in wardrobes. A stone/brick barn connects to Fir Tree Farmhouse which could, subject to the necessary planning/building regulations, be incorporated into the main house.
Outside there is a generous parking area with a double car port and three bay Dutch barn, providing a useful storage area. The stable yard is well presented and has eight boxes, two of which are foaling corner boxes and one is a solarium/washroom. Water is provided via a pipe to the edge of the yard providing fresh spring water which comes directly from the Long Mynd. A former piggery building stands to the other side of the drive. The drive is publicly owned by the Local Authority who are responsible for the upkeep.
At the head of the drive is an excellent 20m x 40m woodchip ménage, with an excellent drainage system which was resurfaced around 18 months ago. It is mostly fenced with post and rail fencing and has 3 large mirrors at the far end. The land extends to approximately 56 acres and has the benefit of bordering a bridleway which leads on/around The Long Mynd and offers extensive hacking opportunities.
