The Property
The Old Telephone Exchange is a charming detached building which dates back to around 1951 and sits on the edge of a field amidst glorious open countryside. The property, which served Great Whittington, was decommissioned in 1978 when it was purchased by the current owners who have used it for the storage of leisure equipment and as a picnic site.

The property measures 4.25m x 2.30m internally and is substantially built of masonry blocks with concrete floor and slate roof. The property has a vaulted, timber clad ceiling and a large window in the gable end. Subject to the relevant planning consents this property could be suitable for a wide range of uses including holiday home, artist's studio or office. Externally the property sits in a plot measuring around 7m x 30m which has a combination of dry stone wall and stock-proof post and rail fencing to the boundary. The garden area offers stunning views over open countryside and includes established privet hedging and mature trees.
