Owners Thoughts

Although with an ancient stone shell, the house was fully internally refurbished in 1998 back to the plasterwork, wiring, plumbing and heating systems. Subsequently upgraded with solar panels and Air Source Heat Pumps with back up woodburners for ambience or the coldest winters, we think the house has the best of the old and the new. Full fibre broadband with over 100mbps enables home working. Our family home for 26 years, 3 generational for a while, our children are now grown and gone and we are ready to close the business and retire somewhere smaller, probably still in Clun valley though! It s such an adaptable and well located property.

There is also a pull down ladder that provides access to the converted roof space which has power and heating, Velux windows and is ready to be used as further accommodation if needed.

Duck Barn

The barn has proved its versatility with the current owners initially developing the space as a granny cottage with two bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor. Then it was converted to a include a ground floor shower room and large lofted extension to the rear with Velux windows, French doors to a rear courtyard onto the garden, and with a treatment room adapted from the original kitchen. The space was subsequently used as a holiday let providing additional income and at the moment is being used a business with office and storage on the first floor and treatment space on the ground floor. For another change of use, potential purchasers would need to speak with Shropshire planning to confirm the permissions required.


The property is approached off Church Street with a block paved gated entrance through to the courtyard between the two buildings.
