The Old Factory Farm is a delightful country property which has been recently renovated by our clients. Believed to be the old factory managers house, dating back some 200 years, our clients purchased the property some 25 years ago.
Approached down Old Factory Lane the property can be found right at the very end of the lane and over its own impressive private bridge over the River Rea.
Once over the bridge you will find the property ahead of you at the top of the hill where there is parking for several cars. The property is entered through the new entrance lobby off of which is a convenient WC/cloakroom. Slate tiled flooring leads through to the kitchen which has a range of floor and head height units which are topped with a light coloured granite surface. Our clients have also installed a small table and seating area and a Stanley Range Oven with double hob. The décor continues into the useful utility room which is just off of the kitchen.
A door leads from the kitchen in to the dining hall with a snug. With an attractive inglenook fireplace which was discovered by our clients during the renovation this creates a pleasant focal point as they have since installed a Clearview wood burning stove. A small step leads to the raised dining area which has solid hardwood flooring. This room was the original main entrance hall and reception room and the original front door has since been replaced by our clients and double doors now lead into a bright garden room which enjoys views over the garden and the countryside beyond.
Adjacent to the dining hall is a further well-proportioned sitting room, again with Clearview wood burning stove, and double doors leading out to the patio.
Stairs from the dining hall lead to the first floor where one will find the master bedroom, a single bedroom and two further double guest bedrooms which are all served by a well presented family bathroom. One can find a whirlpool/Jacuzzi bath, separate shower unit along with wash basin and low level flush WC.
The property has a private and manageable garden which backs on to a hard standing area which accommodates several outbuildings including a double garage, storage, 3 loose boxes and a tack room. This area provides access to a turning out paddock and a track leads past the manége and to further holding paddocks. There is a large steel barn built on a clay base which provides potential to accommodate further equestrian facilities and adjacent to this a polytunnel.
This paddock has access to the Jack Mytton Way and Simon Evans Way which are two bridle paths providing significant opportunities for riding out, possibly to Cleobury Mortimer or Catherton Common if desired. Alternatively the property provides a wonderful opportunity for those looking for a lifestyle change and embracing everything the Countryside has to offer.
The property enjoys riparian rights from the bank of the River Rea and there are additional vehicular rights of way to the paddocks via a farm track from Detton.
There are two footpaths and a bridle path crossing the property which our clients inform us are lightly used. A fishing club has fishing rights in the River Rea. The River Rea flooded in 2007 which led to the bridge having to be replaced. The flooding did not affect the property directly as it is well elevated from the river. Old Factory Farm is a registered holding and therefore suitable for a rural business - the holding number is 35/0280087.
Tenure: We understand our client owns the property freehold and they are offering it for sale with vacant possession.
Services: The property benefits from mains water and electricity and has private drainage and oil fired central heating. Broadband is also connected to the property. Council Tax Band F.
