Market Drayton was granted a market charter in 1245 and still hosts weekly street and livestock markets. In addition there is a wide range of amenities including schools, shops, leisure facilities and doctors’ surgery and within a 20-mile radius are Telford, Shrewsbury and Newcastle-under-Lyme, all of which offer a wider range of services. The area is well served by private and state primary and secondary schools.

With excellent road links and nearby rail links, along with a number of international airports within 1.5 hours’ drive, this property would be ideal for those needing to commute further afield for work.  Pear Tree Farm combines the best of both worlds offering the opportunity for a truly rural lifestyle, with ample facilities for keeping animals either domestic or commercial, whilst being within close proximity of urban facilities .

The house has been largely unaltered since it was extended in the 1960’s and would therefore benefit from modernisation and/or extension. Nonetheless the current accommodation is perfectly habitable and the property could be occupied whilst any works were undertaken.

This charming property is accessed, from the rear, through a single-storey glazed entrance hall which leads to a galley-style kitchen with Stanley range. Beyond the kitchen is a rear hall leading to a pantry-style store cupboard and a downstairs bathroom. To the front of the house are the dining room and sitting room, both having attractive bay windows and open fires, and the front door. On the first floor are three bedrooms and a bathroom.

Attractive cottage-style gardens are found to the front of the house. Mature well-stocked borders surround a central lawned area with an ornamental pond to one corner. At the foot of the garden is an orchard and vegetable patch.

Having been home to a pedigree herd of South Devon cattle, the buildings are well equipped for cattle handling offering both loose housing and cubicles in a range of steel portal- framed buildings as well as more traditional brick buildings. The largest of these buildings (17m x 10m max) incorporates a workshop to one side with the main span having a concrete floor making it ideal for a wide variety of uses. Beyond this is a further steel portal-framed building which has been sub-divided to create loose housing with access direct from the land.

Adjacent to these is a range of brick and tile buildings including the former dairy and cubicles (19m x 6m). If not required for agricultural purposes these could offer ideal office or studio space or could be converted to provide ancillary accommodation, subject to the necessary planning consents. Attached to this is a further building offering loose housing and to the rear are a number of pole barns offering additional storage space as well as a concrete block shippon.

Clearly these buildings would be well suited for housing of any stock not least for equestrian purposes and the surrounding network of quiet country lanes and bridlepaths would be ideal for exercising horses.  The land surrounds the property to three sides and is split in to four enclosures offering level grazing.
