Property Description

Full description

Willow Barn is believed to date from the early 1800’s, and was converted in 2002, by Barn Renovation Specialist, Dennis Edwards. The original structure was carefully and soundly constructed, while the subsequent conversion includes hardwood sealed double glazed windows throughout, with hardwood internal and external doors, oil-fired central heating, oak floors and additional LPG gas for the cooking hob.

The property has been upgraded and improved by the present owners and includes entrance porch, hall, lounge, cloakroom and wc, and an impressive 20ft high galleried dining hall which is a particular feature of the house. This space has a total of 12 windows overlooking the front and rear gardens to give a feeling of immense light and volume. A notable aspect of Willow Barn is that there are almost no corridors, with all main rooms leading off this central space.

Leading through from the dining hall is a large fitted kitchen/living room which is ideal for entertaining, a utility room, study, and boiler room.

On the first floor there are 2 main bedrooms both with en suite shower rooms, 2 further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. All bedrooms, en-suite shower rooms and the family bathroom benefit from 12ft high vaulted ceilings with exposed oak beams.

There is an attached double garage, and large private gardens adjoining open fields to the rear, with a large stoned BBQ terrace to one side and a walled patio area to the other.

Willow Barn is not overlooked, and lies a in a substantial courtyard with two other large converted detached barns, offering privacy, seclusion and a secure environment.

An impressive and spacious 4 bedroomed barn conversion in a lovely rural setting.

The property enjoys a lovely peaceful location in the hamlet of Lacon which is just under two miles from Wem, a thriving market town steeped in history with food shops, a doctor's surgery, schools and many local community groups. The property is also conveniently placed for access to Shrewsbury (20 minutes), Whitchurch (10 minutes) and Chester (45 minutes) as well as being approximately 1 ¼ hours by car to Birmingham and Liverpool with Central Manchester accessible in c. 1 ¼ hours by train from Wem.

For those with dogs or who just enjoy a walk in the lovely Shropshire countryside, there are excellent woodland walks within a 2 mile radius of the house and the stunning Shropshire Hills just half an hour’s drive away.
