Description - Halls are proud to present Oakfields Farm at Northwood, Nr Wem, for sale by private treaty.

Oakfields Farm is a very well presented and superbly appointed country house with attractively landscaped gardens, an extensive range of outbuildings and pasture paddocks extending, in all, to approximately 10.5 acres, or thereabouts, situated in a splendid rural location a short distance from the popular North Shropshire town of Wem.

The 'homestead' is an attractive country house which has been sympathetically refurbished and extended to an exacting standard by the current vendors. The spacious internal accommodation comprises, on the ground floor, an entrance porch, dining hall, lounge, open plan kitchen/breakfast room opening into a family/garden room, rear entrance hallway, utility room and downstairs cloakroom. On the first floor there are four double bedrooms, master bedroom and bedroom two both with ensuite shower facilities, and a family bathroom. The property has the benefit of double glazed windows throughout, oil fired central heating and is presented for sale with the fitted carpets included in the purchase price.

Outside, the property is complimented by attractively landscaped gardens including a flagged paved patio area, providing an ideal outdoor entertaining space, leading onto lawned gardens with various interspersed maturing shrubs and trees.

The outbuildings are a particularly notable feature of the property and are conveniently situated close to the house. The outbuildings are most extensive for a smallholding of this size, comprising an 8 bay portal framed machinery storage building, former milking parlour, former cubicle shed and a workshop extending to over 2000 sq. Feet to name only a few. The outbuildings have immense potential for adaptation/alteration to suit to ones individual requirements.

The land is, also, a notable feature of Oakfields Farm and is, currently, retained in convenient sized enclosures of pasture ideal for the grazing of all kinds of livestock, if required, particularly horses. The property extends, in all, to approximately 10.5 acres.
