Description - Halls are delighted with instructions to offer Blackhurst Ford and Sparrow Hatch Cottage, at Northwood, between Wem and Ellesmere, for sale by private treaty.

The sale provides an almost unique opportunity for purchasers to acquire an imaginatively designed and sympathetically converted barn which has been recently converted to a high standard with an adjacent three bedroom period country cottage offering potential for complete refurbishment, as well as a number of most useful outbuildings and land extending, in all, to around 20 acres, situated in this most popular and convenient rural location.

Sparrow Hatch Cottage provides single storey accommodation which has only recently been completed, to provide a Kitchen, Living Room, Dining Area, Inner Hallway, Study Area, Bathroom and two Bedrooms (Master with Dressing Room and Ensuite Shower Room). The property benefits from an air source heating system, PV panels and is presented for sale with the fitted carpets included in the purchase price.

Adjacent to Sparrow Hatch Cottage is Blackhurst Ford which provides a country cottage of great character, in need of complete refurbishment and currently providing a ground floor Entrance Hall, Living Room, Sitting Room, Dining Room, Kitchen Area, ground floor Family Bathroom, Utility Room and Boot Room together with three first floor Bedrooms.

Outside, there is a range of most useful outbuildings including a recently constructed multi-purpose storage shed/workshop which is ideal for a number of usages with an adjacent machinery storage shed and pole barn.

A most unexpected feature of the property is the land which extends to around 20 acres and is currently in three enclosures of permanent pasture, ideal for the grazing of a variety of animals.

The sale of Blackhurst Ford and Sparrow Hatch Cottage does, therefore, provide an opportunity for purchasers to acquire a superbly converted barn, ready for immediate occupation and an attractive country cottage with potential for a full scheme of refurbishment and possible extension, together with a range of most useful outbuildings and land situated in this popular north Shropshire location.
