Nook Lane, Weston-under-redcastle


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
Most of us have dreams and desires! For many, it is owning a house in the country surrounded by fields, with enough room to graze an animal or perhaps even stretch to a child's pony. Well, now is the time to wake up and take a reality check. You may even need to pinch yourself because your fantasy has just got better; included with this property is a detached barn with planning consent to convert it into a 3 bedroom property with a detached garage. So now the possibilities are endless. You could convert it, sell it on and make some money, you could convert it and house your ageing parents in it or you could do absolutely nothing and use it as it is for garaging/stables/storage/workshop. Whatever you decide to do, don't ignore it because if someone else snaps it up, your dreams will be shattered and it could be a nightmare finding anything similar. The cottage itself has been extended at the rear and provides 2 separate reception rooms, along with a rustic farmhouse kitchen/breakfast room downstairs. Upstairs, there are 3 bedrooms and a bathroom. There is scope for further modernisation in order to realise its full potential. Outside, in addition to formal gardens, there is a pony paddock and a manege with an all weather surface. Outbuildings include the barn itself, along with a brick workshop/utility and a single garage. Weston-Under-Redcastle is about 7 miles from the market town of Whitchurch and the close proximity to the A49 and A41 trunk roads ensures swift road links to Shrewsbury, Wolverhampton and Chester. Opportunities such as this rarely come onto the market and with that in mind, an early inspection is strongly recommended.
