Property Description 

A rare opportunity to purchase a redundant agricultural farm building situated in an attractive rural location offered for sale by private treaty with the benefit of planning permission for creation of a detached property and  garage.

  • Excellent opportunity for private individuals looking for self build opportunities or builders requiring smaller projects
  • Attractive rural location 
  • Convenient for access to A41 and onward commuter routes

The building measures 31’7 x 12’ internally and when converted will offer compact but thoughtfully laid out accommodation with plentiful openings and vaulted ceiling creating a feeling of light and space.  The property has the benefit of a substantial site extending to approximately 0.25 Acre.

This provides an ideal opportunity for a developer, builder or private individual to obtain a development opportunity in a rural location only a short distance from a thriving village.

The charming village of Hinstock, found equidistant from the market towns of Market Drayton and Newport, offers a substantial range of amenities including primary school, village shop, public house and nursing home as well as plentiful recreational facilities.  More comprehensive amenities can be found in both Market Drayton and Newport or the nearby business centres of Shrewsbury and Telford. The area is well served educationally with both private and state primary and secondary schools and the renowned Harper Adams University is situated at nearby Newport.

The site is conveniently located for access to the A41 trunk road which provides excellent links with the M54 motorway and A5 for road travel. Equally the mainline railway station at Stafford is only 19 miles away and provides a direct service to London Euston in just over an hour.
