This stunning, period farmhouse is set in the heart of the idyllic North Shropshire countryside which is renowned for peace and tranquillity. The nearby thriving market town of Whitchurch, which offers a range of amenities including supermarkets, doctors’ surgeries and boutique shops, has been quoted by The Times as being one of the best places to live post pandemic. The area is extremely well-served with both state and private primary and secondary schools. With excellent road and rail links and airports within 1 hours’ drive, Springhill Farm is perfect for those wanting to enjoy the country life whilst having to commute for work.
Found nestled down a private drive set well away from the road, this lovely property enjoys a feeling of uninterrupted seclusion with far-reaching views over open countryside to the Welsh Hills. The Shropshire Union Canal meanders through the farmland encouraging a whole host of waterfowl and birdlife and the land has been farmed organically for a number of years, allowing wildlife to flourish. The farm is in close proximity to Fenn’s Moss, an area of Special Scientific Interest which covers close to 2,500 Acres and is well-known as home to a huge range of interesting mosses, plants and wildlife.
The area is exceptionally popular for those with equestrian interests with a network of quiet country lanes and bridlepaths and equestrian centres, including Tushingham Area, Broxton Hall Gallops, Kelsall Hill and Southview, within easy reach.
Renovated in 2009, Springhill Farm perfectly combines modern, spacious living space with traditional period features. A brick porch, complete with seating area, leads directly into an attractive reception room with impressive brick Inglenook fireplace and cosy log-burning stove. Beyond this is a formal reception room with doors to a paved seating area. The substantial open/plan kitchen and dining area is flooded with light from a large window overlooking the garden and a trio of roof lights and the kitchen is fitted with a range of contemporary units and appliances. A further reception room is accessed from the dining area and is currently used as a snug and cinema room but would be ideal as a family room or play room. A rear porch, utility room, WC and bespoke wine cellar provide additional, useful living space. To the first floor are four bedrooms, the largest two each having en-suite shower rooms with the other two being serviced by the family bathroom.
Mature gardens are found to three sides of the house with trees and shrubs ensuring a feeling of total privacy. Predominantly south facing, the garden has a lovely patio area and a productive vegetable section with raised beds, a selection of soft fruit bushes and fruit trees along with a greenhouse – perfect for those seeking self-sufficiency.
The Farm Buildings
Adjacent to the house is a substantial two-storey T-shaped range of brick farm buildings which were historically used for the housing a cattle and general storage but offer huge potential for development for either residential, equestrian or light commercial use, subject to any necessary planning permissions. To the rear of the main building are a further range of versatile agricultural buildings and a dutch barn. In additional there is a timber clad building comprising two garages and a well-equipped farm office, complete with kitchenette which could be adapted to provide additional living space.
The main block of land, found to the east of the canal, surrounds the house and totals 17.37 Acres (4.59 Ha) and is in permanent pasture offering extensive grazing for horses or stock in three well-fenced paddocks. The remaining land, 11.34 Acres, is found to the west of the canal and approximately six acres of this has been planted with a range of native tress and shrubs to create a typical English woodland.
