Bowen Son & Watson are delighted with instructions to offer for sale a Grade II detached country residence in an idyllic location near Oswestry.

Great Fernhill Farmhouse, an 17th Century building built circa.1595 is part of the Fernhill Estate just on the outskirts of Whittington set within 6.235 aces (2.523ha). Particular features to this property are the two imposing chimney breasts to its eastern elevation and the carved joists which wrap around the whole building and appear on all elevations. This type of detail exaggerated wealth and status of the English gentleman that it was originally built for William Albany, who was thought to be a London Merchant Taylor.

Great Fernhill Farmhouse contains a wealth of traditional features including exposed beams, tiled floors and fireplaces.

A gravelled pathway leads around the side of the property from the turning and parking area to the gardens. The gardens themselves are mainly laid to lawn interspersed with mature shrubs and trees. There is an orchard to the side of the property and a gravelled entertaining area to the rear. The boundaries comprise part timber fencing and part red brick walls. From the gardens there are wide ranging views out over open countryside with small spinneys and patches of mature woodland completing this most idyllic location.

Bordering the parking area there is one brick and slate outbuilding which could be used as a workshop or for storage and connected to the property there is a lean-to store building with separate coal/log store.


The farmhouse is connected to a mains water and electricity supply. Drainage is to a private system located on the property.
