Guide Price
Property Description 

Situated in the heart of the beautiful North Shropshire countryside, the village of Hinstock benefits from a range of facilities including post office with village shop, pub and thriving primary school as well as sports clubs including tennis, football and cricket.

More extensive amenities, including supermarkets, doctors’ surgeries and leisure facilities are to be found in nearby Market Drayton.

The busy town of Newport has a generous selection of interesting, independent shops and boutiques along with coffee shops and brasseries.  There is also a wealth of educational facilities in the Newport area, including Adams’ Grammar and Newport Girls High school and the renowned Harper Adams University.

The property is exceptionally well placed for commuter routes being only one mile from the A41 which leads to the M54 motorway and on to the M6. Stafford mainline train station is within half an hour’s drive.

For those interested in horses, there are a number of equestrian facilities in the vicinity and a plethora of quiet country lanes and bridlepaths for peaceful riding.

Woodlane Farm was purchased by the vendors as part of their satellite farming operation in the 1980’s and the farm buildings are now offered for sale as superfluous to their requirements.  Residential planning permission was granted in 2009. Work has commenced, and Local Authority approval has been given that the work is satisfactory, to ensure that the permission is secured.

The buildings are of brick construction beneath a part-slate and part-tile roof and are particularly attractive due to a number of architectural features.  These include decorative brickwork originally intended for ventilation purposes when the first floor of the building would have been used for storage of straw or grain, and dentil corbelling and brickwork. Immense care has been taken by the architects to preserve the integrity of the building whilst allowing for the requirements of modern day living.

The permission provides for a substantial four bedroom property which will offer spacious family living over two floors. The two main living spaces are 23ft and 27ft long respectively and are complemented by a smaller cosy snug and a first floor study.  Of the four bedrooms, two have   en-suite shower and dressing rooms with the remainder sharing a family bathroom.

Furthermore the adjacent farm building has permission for conversion to form an associated annexe. Although they are currently two separate buildings, this innovative planning  permission allows for the creation of a part-glazed link to join the two buildings and create a link between the main property and the one bedroom annexe.

In addition the permission allows for the conversion of the building to the side of the courtyard to provide additional storage space or a games room. Equally, subject to the necessary planning consent, this could provide space for a home office or studio.  The proposal also allows for the construction of a double garage.

Gardens will be created to two sides of the property which will enjoy views over the surrounding farmland whilst a private walled courtyard will be formed to the third side allowing access to the games/store room.

The site as a whole extends to approximately 1.8 Acres and includes a number of modern farm buildings and a dutch barn.

Development Clawback

Please note that the site is sold subject to a clawback stipulating that if planning permission is granted for any further residential units on the site within 15 years of completion of the sale then the current vendor or her heirs will be entitled to 25% of the increase in value.
