Main House - Dating back to the mid 1800s, Gwernhafod makes an imposing impression situated on the Welsh borders and on the edge of the Shropshire Plain.

Outside - A particular feature of the property is the exciting potential offered by the external land and buildings. Closest to the property is a PADDOCK/ORCHARD with a variety of mature fruit trees, a GARAGE with staircase leading to boarded storage and a STABLE/WORKSHOP with its original manger still in situ. There are two farmyards with outbuildings including various DUTCH BARNS, ANIMAL SHELTERS and a large separate barn with planning permission in place for conversion to living accommodation. The LAND which is offered is 7 acres of paddock. There are around a further 24 acres of land available by separate negotiation.

Our Opinion - Gwernhafod represents a wonderful opportunity to enjoy modern, comfortable living within a period property which retains many of its historical features. The vendors' addition of a spacious two bedroom annexe offers wonderful flexibility of accommodation for family and friends. Particularly exciting are the opportunities for development offered by the propertys outbuildings (one with planning permission already granted) and the pasture land. All-in-all, we feel that Gwernhafod is a jewel of a property and one we feel privileged to bring to the market.
