Property Description 

New House Farm is found to the outskirts of the charming village of Cheswardine which offers a range of facilities including pubs, post office and community shop, and thriving primary school.

A greater variety of amenities can be found in the local market towns of Market Drayton and Newport as well as the larger conurbations of Stafford, Shrewsbury and Telford. The area is extremely well served educationally with both private and state primary and secondary schools with  renowned boys’ and girls’ state-managed, selective schools at Newport.  The area has excellent road links via the A53 and A41 to the M54 and M6 motorways

The farm sits in an elevated position and enjoys superb views across the North Shropshire countryside to Wales.

· Attached bungalow with sitting room, substantial kitchen, two bedrooms, bathroom

The main farmhouse is a lovely period property with a wealth of traditional features including bay windows, coving and cornicing. Whilst both the farmhouse and bungalow are dated in terms of décor, the bungalow having been largely unaltered since it was built in 1978,  they offer a buyer the opportunity to update and enhance the properties to suit their personal tastes and alter the current accommodation to meet their own specific requirements.

Although attached to the main farmhouse, the bungalow was designed to provide entirely self-contained living space and as such would be ideal for those looking for property to accommodate elderly relatives and family members. Equally, the bungalow could be further incorporated into the main house to offer additional complementary living space.

At present the properties offer two separate, yet adjoining living spaces. The farmhouse comprises a kitchen with Rayburn, utility room and three reception rooms, two of which have open fires, to the ground floor and three bedrooms and a bathroom to the first floor.

The bungalow has a spacious kitchen with sufficient space for a dining table, generous sitting room with open fire running the full width of the property, two bedrooms and a bathroom as well as an integral garage.

To the rear of the house, and facing in a southerly direction,  is a  lawned area with several well planted borders which enjoys a stunning outlook over its own land and then farmland beyond. The front of the property enjoys a charming view over the village playing fields towards the village and church beyond.

Beyond the house are a selection of domestic brick outbuildings including dog kennels, storage and a WC. Within the main farmyard are an extensive range of farm buildings including an L-shaped range of five stables with stores to the rear and a workshop. In addition there is a more modern  purpose built block of three stables and  adjacent is a grain and general purpose store along with an open-fronted five-bay barn. To the opposite side of the house are two former chicken rearing buildings.  These are in a dilapidated state and whilst they offer further storage space, may well be better dismantled and the space utilised for extension of the garden or as further grazing land.

Extensive off road riding routes and quiet country lanes mean that the area is a haven for equestrian enthusiasts. The nearby Burnt Wood and Bishop’s Wood, an original hunting ground for the Bishop of Lichfield and now in the management of the Forestry Commission, are criss-crossed by bridlepaths and footpaths and offers access to acres of stunning mature  woodland and farmland ideal for riding and walking. The nearby Shropshire Union Canal offers further opportunities for walking and enjoying this beautiful area of North Shropshire.
