Bush Farm House has been sympathetically renovated to offer modern day comfort whilst retaining immense character and charm. Period features such as wall and ceiling timbers, feature stone walls, attractive fireplaces and exposed floorboards are apparent throughout. This exceptional home now offers excellent and
extremely flexible accommodation.

A light and airy country kitchen/breakfast room has dual aspect windows overlooking the pretty
gardens and has been cleverly designed and divided into two distinct areas by exposed wall timbers. The kitchen has bespoke fitted storage, a Neff electric oven and hob, and space for a dishwasher. An Aga in the breakfast area creates a warm welcome and a perfect atmosphere for informal entertaining. A cellar and laundry provide additional storage. The snug used to be the village shop, it has dual aspect windows and a wood burning stove for cosy winter evenings.

An atmospheric formal dining room has a wealth of exposed wall and ceiling timbers along with a large inglenook fireplace with Clearview wood burning stove. A magnificent drawing room has triple aspect windows flooding the room with natural light and two sets of French doors open to a decked terrace which overlooks the gardens and gently rolling countryside beyond.

There are five characterful bedrooms in total, many with exposed elm floorboards and wall, and ceiling timbers. The master bedroom has a dressing room with bespoke fitted storage and an adjacent stylish bathroom with under floor heating and double ended bath. Situated on the 2nd floor off bedroom three is a very useful storage room accessed through a small hatch door.

A second staircase rises from the drawing room to bedroom 5 which enjoys fabulous far-reaching views and benefits from a contemporary ensuite shower room with underfloor heating.

The popular village of Clee St. Margaret is located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and consists of a cluster of properties predominantly built in mellow stone and nestled around a church. One of Shropshire's longest fords flows gently through the village. Everyday facilities can be found in the nearby historic market town of Ludlow.

The surrounding countryside has many footpaths and bridleways with nearby Clee Liberty Common and Brown Clee particularly popular for these pursuits.

The county town of Shrewsbury is to the north and offers a wider range of shopping and recreational facilities. Birmingham is 35 miles to the east and the motorway network accessible just outside of Worcester for the M5 or Telford for the M54.
Communications in the area are excellent with trains from Ludlow on the main Manchester-Cardiff line and London can be reached in just over three hours.

The vendors have designed beautiful landscaped gardens at Bush Farm House which are now a real feature of the property. Areas of lawn are interspersed with retained flowering beds and well stocked herbaceous borders. Meandering paths pass under archways and link various sections of the garden and lead to seating areas.

This quintessential English country garden includes climbing roses, clematis and wisteria. Vines create a canopy over a pergola offering shade to the rear terrace; a fabulous place to entertain or relax and enjoy the views. There is a lily pond, a kitchen garden with soft fruit and raised vegetable beds along with a small orchard and espalier fruit trees. The private gardens are enclosed by attractive stone walls and mature hedgerows.

Bush Farm House is approached through a private gated entrance. The old stable yard offers plenty of parking space in front of a detached garage. The old stable block is now divided into a large workshop (which could still be used as stables) and a cinema/games room.

There is gated access to the land which is divided by stock proof fences into 3 gently sloping paddocks amounting to about 3 acres. Within the yard there is also a small stone building that is used for storage.
