Understood to date from the mid 1700s, Norbury Hall is a striking farmhouse with generous accommodation. Modernised for family life by underfloor heating amongst other up-to-date changes, the house itself still presents the classic Georgian combination of high ceilings and rooms filled with natural light.

The drawing room and dining room are both beautifully appointed, while the breakfast room is found adjacent to the kitchen. Currently a games room, the lower ground floor could also be utilised as a study.

Upstairs the bedrooms are spread over two floors with three double bedrooms (two en-suite) on the first floor, and two double bedrooms served by a shower room on the second floor. The fifth bedroom sits on the ground floor, and is accessed from the breakfast room.

Outside is a stone barn offering parking spaces, and two further stores which could convert easily into stables. The gardens lie mainly to the front, and side and have been landscaped to incorporate a part-walled orchard, lawns and two freshwater-fed fish pools. To the south, the land extends to around 16 acres and has water and stock-proof fencing.

Norbury Hall is located in an elevated position with stunning views in the popular village of Norbury which is just four miles from Bishops Castle in Shropshire. Shrewsbury is 15 miles.
