Welcome to Wood Farmhouse an exceptional 500-year-old brick and timbered property set in the stunning Greddington Estate, surrounded by the glorious Shropshire/Welsh countryside. The property has received some well carried out renovations via the current owner, who has sympathetically assisted the flow of the house to accommodate modern living. The current owner has also dressed and improved the interior to a high standard, being featured in over forty-four national and international magazines even winning the Best Country House award. This delightful four-bed farmhouse has character and charm in abundance – from the exposed beams to oak flooring, log burning stove, and stunning views. Quirky, charming, and peaceful are some words that spring to mind. The property previously had full planning to extend the farmhouse by forty-nine per cent, this has now lapsed but could be re-applied for is you so choose. Wood Farmhouse comprises of an entrance hall, drawing room, study, stylish open plan family kitchen, family room, dining area, utility, and downstairs cloakroom. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms both with ensuite and a further two bedrooms with a family bathroom.

via the Daily Telegraph) comprising of an open plan, sitting/dining room/ kitchen area along with a bathroom and a double bedroom upstairs the current owner has run this as a very successful holiday cottage and also lends itself to other multiple uses. There is also an additional barn which also previously full planning to convert into a second-holiday cottage or could be an office/studio, offering huge versatility to this already much-desired property.

The barn offers a wide range of versatility to this already much-desired property, plans and mood boards are available.

SELLERS INSIGHT

"I love the fact that there is a tennis court at the bottom of the lane and three private schools pick up stops at the main road as I had two girls at different schools. The Cross Foxes is a must and the Chomondley Arms is fabulous both 15 minutes away. The walks from the property are amazing, you can see three counties being on the border of Shropshire, Cheshire and Wales it’s truly stunning. Thankfully we are 20 to 30 minutes from some amazing places, such as Llangollen for Sunday walks with a roast at the end and Chester for the races and meals out at the piano bar at Opera Grill and Bickerson hill walks are amazing with a lavish meal at the pheasant afterwards. It’s one of those places you will just absolutely love to live , I planned on 3 years I have stayed 10! The garden is so big you can have it as either a pony paddock a tennis court or put a full-size swimming pool in. The drive up to the house always pleases me seeing the incredible features of the oak framed end of the house welcoming me home. The lounge is fantastic for entertaining guests with the newly fitted log burner crackling in the background. The newly fitted decking to the rear of the kitchen and open plan dining, sitting and kitchen area is where I spent most of my time. I love working from home, that is where I am my happiest and I can do this very successfully. The wildlife is amazing with Canada geese nesting in the surrounding fields on their onward journey taking a rest and the fact that the surrounding landscape is completely unspoilt. Walking to the pub across the fields to Hamner is like going back in time. This has been a much-loved home, but now it's time to move on"
