Church Farm comprises two distinct properties – the five bedroom 16th century farmhouse and a beautiful barn conversion built to the highest specifications. The property itself is a substantial grade II listed village house with many period features in its principal rooms including flagstone floors, and beamed ceilings, as well as wooden window seats and original doors.

The kitchen has an Aga and is light and airy, with a pantry and a larder close to hand. Five bedrooms, very versatile in configuration, are located upstairs, two with old fireplaces. The house is full of charm, but requires some modernisation.

The barn conversion has a large open-plan reception on the ground floor with large windows looking out to the surrounding countryside. Beatiful oak beams and handmade oak doors have been used throughout, while two large sitting rooms and a gallery kitchen are great family spaces.

The top floor has been converted to a stunning en-suite one-bedroom apartment, while the ground floor is currently being used as workshops but has enormous potential.

Outside the gardens are made up of lawned areas with an apple walkway, a pond and an orchard full of rare apple trees.

Chuch Farm is located in the Shropshire hamlet of More, near Bishops Castle which has good local shopping, while Shropshire has some of the most scenic countryside in England.

The guide price is £995,000. For further information please contact Knight Frank on 01432 273 087 or visit www.knightfrank.co.uk.
