Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Oakley Farm is a marriage of farm house charm and superb positioning. The house has been a happy home to the current vendors and boasts excellent proportions, high ceilings, and wonderful views.

A spacious hallway provides access to the heart of the home; a dual aspect kitchen/breakfast room. This central hub of the property is a super space with large windows allowing in lots of natural light and the views. An adjacent utility and separate cloakroom are a real bonus and a useful boot room provides a back door to the parking area at the rear. The adjoining garden room provides great potential for extending (subject to the necessary consents).

The remaining ground floor area offers a spacious dining room and large sitting room; the latter benefitting a wood burning stove. Continuing through the sitting room an adjacent study is valuable space and provides the doorway through to the conservatory.

Stairs rise from the hall to a large landing full of natural light. This is a lovely space with views of the hills and fields to the front aspect and double doors which provide access to the rear part of the house with two double bedrooms and the family bathroom. Either side of said landing is the main guest bedroom and the master bedroom; which benefits from an en suite bathroom. These rooms continue the theme of light and generous room dimensions.

Continuing to the second floor there are a further three bedrooms, one with WC and basin.

Oakley Farm occupies a wonderful position set in the Upper Onny Valley, surrounded by unspoilt hill country affording superb views at every turn. The vibrant market town of Bishop Castle is only a mile away.

Boasting market town status since 1249, Bishops Castle still has a thriving livestock market at the auction yard and a popular farmers market to be found in the newly refurbished town hall; fast becoming the rejuvenated heart of Bishops Castle.
There is a fantastic mix of independent shops, restaurants, museums, cafes, pubs and micro-breweries on the doorstep. Of particular note is The Three Tuns of 1642; the oldest licensed brewery in Britain and The Castle Hotel which stands on the site of the ancient castle and was once owned by Clive of India.

Bishops Castle has a wonderful community spirit with many local celebrations such as the carnival, beer festival and Michelmas festival.

Located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty the surrounding countryside makes for excellent cycling and walking; it is no surprise that status as a ‘Walkers Are Welcome’ town was awarded in 2008. The Shropshire Way, Offas Dyke and prehistoric Bronze Age Kerry Ridgeway are found on the edge of the town.

Communications in the area are good with the A488 linking Shrewsbury in the north. The A49 is located a few miles away and rail links are found at Craven Arms and Church Stretton.
Further amenities and services include a doctor’s surgery, dentists and a local hospital. There is an excellent primary school and The Community College offers secondary and further education. We are informed the area will benefit from the arrival of fibre optic broadband in the summer of 2016.

The lane gives way to a drive and in turn a gravelled parking area to the front aspect of the house. The drive then continues to the rear where there is further parking and access to the useful outbuildings; these consist of summer house, various brick built stores (complete with twin seater privy!) and a double garage/workshop.

The property sits comfortably within its grounds and the gardens, mainly laid to lawn, provide an opportunity to create something very special.

There is a neighbouring paddock which is fenced and has a separate access to the lane.

The house makes the most of the position, with some far reaching views over surrounding countryside from Colstey Forest to nearby Bishops Castle and on to the Long Mynd which turns pink at sunset making for a really super vista.
