Property description

The Local Area
Upper Farm is situated in a charming rural location only a short distance from the historic village of Ruyton XI Towns which is believed to date back to the Iron Age. Situated in an elevated position, the property enjoys stunning views across adjoining farmland towards the Welsh Hills.

Whilst Ruyton XI Towns offers a small range of facilities, including an independent coffee and village shop, nearby Baschurch offers a more comprehensive range of services including a small supermarket, takeaway restaurants, pubs and shops. Only four miles to the north the thriving market town of Oswestry, which was granted its market charter in 1262 and still hosts weekly street and livestock markets, offers a wide range of amenities including several doctors' surgeries, churches, post offices, banks, pubs and restaurants and a large number of specialist and independent shops and supermarkets.

There are excellent road links to Shrewsbury and Chester via the nearby A5, with both offering a comprehensive range of amenities. The area is well-served by established private and state primary and secondary schools and the property is well-placed for commuters with excellent road and rail links and airports within 1.5 hours' drive.

This stunning area of North Shropshire is particularly popular with equestrian enthusiasts, walkers and cyclists who all enjoy utilising the network of quiet country lanes and public rights of way. Nearby Heritage Site Nesscliffe Hill and The Cliffe offer an extensive area of approximately 70 Ha to explore and enjoy on foot, horse or bicycle.

The Property
Upper Farm is an impressive period property which offers extensive living space over three floors, ideal for family living. Originally part of Shotatton Court the property was a tenanted farm until the 1980's before being privately owned.

The sellers have extensively improved the property over the last twelve years and have taken particular care to utilise systems with a low-carbon impact which are as environmentally friendly as possible. This includes photovoltaic solar panels which fuel the electric supply and an air-source heating system which predominantly fuels the heating system. Recently a garden room has been created, the kitchen has been recently refitted and the house has largely been repainted. Throughout all the improvement works immense care has been made to retain the period features inherent throughout the house and the property seamlessly melds modern living space with traditional features.

This imposing property is very traditional in layout with two large reception rooms to the front of the house, both with log burning stoves, and smaller rooms, currently a study and pantry/utility room behind these. The splendid kitchen is found to the rear of the house and this is open- plan to the stunning garden room. These two rooms offer fantastic, versatile family living space with the garden room, complete with log burning stove, likely to feature as the centre-point of family life. Double doors lead from this room to a gravelled seating and terrace area which enjoys an attractive outlook over the lawn towards the orchard and vegetable garden.

To the first floor there are four well-proportioned bedrooms, the master suite having a dressing area and en-suite shower room, and an attractively fitted family bathroom. On the second floor there are three further bedrooms, one of which is currently used as a store room, and a further bathroom. The bedrooms to the front of the house enjoy staggering views over farmland with The
Breiddens and Long Mountain visible in the distance.

The property is approached through impressive wrought iron electric gates which lead to a substantial gravel parking area and the recently built timber-framed garage and workshop. Whilst there is an attractive lawn and garden area to the front of the house, the majority of the garden is to the side and rear ensuring a feeling of peace and privacy. Largely laid to lawn, the garden is interspersed with a selection of well planted borders and pond.

Beyond the lawn is a well-stocked vegetable garden with a multitude of raised beds and soft fruit cages and the adjoining orchard, which is home to a number of fruit trees, including apple, pear and plum further complements this.

The house is screened and protected by paddocks to the side and rear, all of which offer ideal space for the grazing of horses or any other stock and a tin clad agricultural building offers potential for adaption to create stabling.

Air-source heating system supplemented by oil. Oil fired hot water system. PhotoVoltaic solar panels provide electric supply supplemented by mains supply. Mains water supply. Private drainage system.
