A unique opportunity to own one of Shropshire's best known landmark properties that could provide a wonderful business opportunity and home combined.
As the name suggests, it is the mid-point on the way to one of Shropshire's great landmarks and a property that offers the next owner an amazing opportunity to have a special home and to build a business featured around it. It is believed to have originally been a hunting lodge and is set on the side of the Wrekin enjoying far reaching views and is understood to date back to the 18th century.
The current owner has spent the last six years renovating, but now feels the property is deserving of owners who will be able to embrace the opportunity that Halfway House could provide. It is not for the faint hearted as the access track really does require a 4x4 vehicle driven with care to get to. It is not for those who are seeking a home away from people as it has tens of thousands of people a year passing by as the walk to the summit of The Wrekin.
Planning permission to turn the old pavilion back into an indoor seating area was obtained and a restoration work was completed in late 2019. This offers so many possibilities to extend the offering that Halfway House can provide.
A period house home that provides good accommodation arranged over two floors with a kitchen dining room that has a solid fuel range and a sitting room with large bay windows and an open fireplace. There is also a ground floor shower room. Upstairs is a large main bedroom with en-suite and two further double bedrooms all of which enjoy wonderful views. The current owner has spent many years updating and improving the property to make it a charming and comfortable home to live in.
Set to the rear of the house, this part of the building has been converted to provide kitchen and serving areas for take-out drinks and food with a serving hatch opening onto the deck and gardens. It is believed that refreshments have been served to passers-by (reputed to be in the region of 100,000 a year) since the late 1800's.
This has a great deal of scope for a number of uses subject to permissions and licences as it now gives the opportunity for covered dining, private hire and gatherings.
Set surrounding the house and pavilion is a lawned area that provides plenty of space for benches and there is scope to create private areas for the house. As you can see the gardens blend into the surrounding countryside and woodland.
