Lubstree Park Farmhouse, Nr Telford
Lubstree Park has an attractive outlook over farmland and open countryside whilst being conveniently close to the thriving commercial centre of Telford. A relatively new town, Telford is an ever-expanding hub of commercial and industrial enterprise with many international businesses operating in the area. This is largely due to its easy accessibility, with excellent motorway links via the M54 and M6 to the south and the A5 and A41 to the north, with train links providing quick access to the major cities of Birmingham and Manchester. International airports at Birmingham, Liverpool and Manchester are within one hour's drive.
The nearby market towns of Wellington and Newport offer a range of local facilities with Telford Town Centre and Shrewsbury providing a wider range of amenities. There is an extensive choice of excellent primary and secondary, state and private schools in the area, including Haberdashers' Adams' Grammar School, Wrekin College and Shrewsbury School.
Lubstree Park is steeped in history and takes its name from a long-lost area of medieval parkland that once formed the largest fenced area in the whole of the Wealds Moors. At the time of the Doomsday survey the area was thought to have been a deer park. More recently the farm has been a soft fruit and then arable farm. The farm buildings to the rear having been developed for residential use, the farmhouse is now offered for sale as a separate entity.

This stunning period property is host to an outstanding range of period features with the front reception rooms, which would have been the original entertaining areas, and the primary bedrooms having original sash windows, attractive and intricate coving, cornicing and dado rails - all typical to the era of the property. The house has been unoccupied for a number of years and would now benefit from a scheme of modernisation and improvement works to return it to its rightful former glory.
The ground floor accommodation is extensive and comprises two substantial formal reception rooms and a smaller snug at the front of the house. To the rear of the house is the kitchen with adjacent dining area and separate utility room, downstairs bathroom and two further reception rooms. In addition there is a cellar.
To the first floor are five bedrooms, one of which has en-suite facilities, and a family bathroom.
To the second floor are two further generous size bedrooms and a landing study area.
Substantial gardens are found to the front of the house, predominantly laid to lawn, with the gravel driveway sweeping through the lawns which are encircled by mature trees and hedging and a brick wall which ensures a feeling of total privacy and seclusion. To the side of the garden is a walled courtyard which is home to the swimming pool. Whilst this has been unused for a number of years, it could be readily reinstated with the courtyard and seating area providing a sheltered entertaining space with ready access to the house through French doors.
Beyond the drive is a small paddock area which offers ideal space for further extension of the gardens or equally for grazing of a horse or pony or other livestock. The surrounding network of quiet country lanes are ideal for the exercising of horses.
Mains electric and water are connected. Oil fired central heating system. Drainage is to a private septic tank.
