Property Description 

A rare opportunity to purchase a single-storey building with permitted development rights, for conversion to form a three-bedroom single-storey dwelling in a stunning location with an unspoilt rural outlook.

The building is of brick construction beneath a fibre cement roof which may contain asbestos and measures 75’ x 37’ with a lean-to brick building to the rear, and has historically been used for agricultural purposes, mainly storage of farm machinery and fodder.

The building is accessed over a private track and sits to the centre of its generous plot which totals 1.19 Acres and includes a small pond.

This charming development opportunity is situated in open countryside approximately two miles from the village of Burlton and only 11 miles north of the county town of Shrewsbury whilst the market town of Wem is only 4.5 miles. This area is renowned for its peace and tranquillity being the gateway to the North Shropshire Meres and Mosses.


Permitted development was granted for alteration to a three-bedroom dwelling (Ref: 14/05139/PMBPA). Full details are available on request.

Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)

The development is liable for CIL, but has a zero charge. The liability notice from Shropshire Council is available on request.

Mains electric is available in the area, connection to this supply will be at the cost of the buyer. Mains water is some distance from the site and therefore it is recommended that investigation be made into creation of a private borehole.
