With lovely countryside views set in an unspoilt, quiet village location this stunning barn conversion offers deceptively spacious accommodation which truly must be viewed to be fully appreciated. Alongside the property is a large workshop/office which offers potential for a variety of uses including work from home, dependent living accommodation/granny annexe. The accommodation comprises through lounge with feature fireplace, spacious family/dining room, well fitted breakfast kitchen, utility, cloakroom, master bedroom with vaulted ceiling and en-suite, three further bedrooms, bathroom with roll top bath, workshop/office, ample parking and south facing rear garden.

The village has a close knit community spirit with various events being run throughout the year from St Peters Church and the village hall. There are excellent facilities in the nearby busy North Shropshire market town of Wem which include supermarket, shops, schools, doctors and a railway station which links directly to Crewe for London or the county town of Shrewsbury.

Description - Approached from the lane, a driveway leads to a good size parking area with room to accommodate several vehicles or a caravan/motorhome, etc. To the front of the property are fields bordered by woodland giving a very pleasant outlook and to the side is a small working farm. The property frontage is aesthetically pleasing having been thoroughly re-landscaped by the current owners with a level lawn and planted trees, attractive red brick walling bordering the fields, sizeable flagstone patio area and a miniature walled garden. Three doors enter the property from the outside, two from the front and one from the rear. The main door opens into the dining hall. Immediately it is evident that the owners have finished Meadow Barn to a high standard and you can see the quality and style from the wooden flooring, staircase and exposed timbers. The current vendors also use it as a home office such is the size of the room. Two doors lead from the dining hall, one to the breakfast kitchen and one to the living room. The breakfast kitchen has a high quality finish, fitted wooden wall and base units have a granite worktop over as does the central island which provides more valuable working space. The Belfast sink and Rangemaster cooker give a real country feel. The kitchen has doors opening to both the front and rear gardens with a further door opening to the utility room. With space and plumbing for a washing machine, tumble dryer and under counter fridge or freezer, the utility keeps some of the day to day chores separate from the rest of the home. Also housed here are the oil fired central heating boiler, WC and wash basin. The living room is a big feature of this home with the exposed timbers and brick built fireplace surrounding the cast iron wood burner making it the perfect place to cosy up on a cold winter's evening.

On the first floor is a spacious landing area which leads to all four bedrooms. The master bedroom is a generous size and has a skylight to the rear and a window to the front. The master also benefits from a smartly appointed en-suite shower room. The second and third bedrooms are both double rooms and the fourth is a good size single bedroom. They all have high vaulted ceiling and exposed timbers which accentuates the sizes even further. The family bathroom stylishly fits in with the feel of the property, fitted with a roll top bath and walk-in shower cubicle, pedestal was basin and WC.

The rear garden has a colourfully planted flowerbed and level lawns. The boundary is well fenced and a gravelled seating area provides the perfect vantage point to enjoy the garden from. Detached from the property is a very large garage/workshop/office. The possibilities for this space are endless, it could remain as a workshop or be converted to an office for someone working from home, it could even provide further accommodation subject to the necessary planning permission being obtained. This is a beautiful property that must be seen. It offers a wonderful village lifestyle but is just a short commute to a wide array of amenities. I am sure it will be a special home for the lucky new owners.
