Long Lane, Craven Arms

Guide price

Bedrooms: 5
Formerly part of the Sibdon Castle Estate, the former granary has been converted to provide both family accommodation and two one bedroom holiday lets. Set within half an acre of garden with far reaching views, the main house has five bedrooms and three bathrooms and a magnificent vaulted ceiling kitchen/ family room. Internal viewing highly recommended.


In these times of uncertainty, how lovely to own a beautiful family home and to earn an income without leaving the comforts of your own home and garden. With current planning permission to extend the family home and create further accommodation. The main home was a former Granary for the Sibdon Castle estate in the late 1700's and was converted to its current residence in 1995. Built from local stone under a pitched slate roof, the family home and holiday cottages form an L-shaped courtyard setting.


After passing through double iron gates into a large square courtyard, enter Highgrove Farm through the oak-framed porch and studded front door into a wide and welcoming hallway, with a split staircase of oak rising to the first floor. On the left is a large drawing room with illuminated arched alcoves, feature fireplace and door to the Cedar wood conservatory, offering far-reaching views over open countryside. Back into the hallway, with double doors into the dining room, through glass-paned double doors into the snug with Clearview log burning stove and exposed timbers, opening into a very large open plan kitchen with high vaulted ceiling.

The kitchen is, as every home should be, the heart of this beautiful family house with a wealth of storage, dual fuel Rangemaster Classic, a family-sized breakfast bar and yet having enough space for a further kitchen table and chairs. A stable door provides access to the courtyard and holiday cottages. Off the kitchen is a large and airy room, which the current owners are using as a ground-floor bedroom, but which could be used as either a family room or home office. The 2004 full planning permission allows this bedroom to enjoy the addition of a bathroom to become the second bedroom to The Dairy or could be easily adapted to a studio. From the kitchen there is an inner lobby with extensive cloaks, which has a shower room, WC and useful boot room, ideal for wet dogs and muddy wellies, this opens into a utility area with washing machine and tumble dryer and oil-fired Worcester-Bosch Green Star boiler.

Take the staircase to the first-floor landing with its minstrel gallery, an ideal space for grandchildren to chase each other up and down the two intertwining stair ways. A huge floor to ceiling window throws light onto this massive oak-beamed landing. The master bedroom with east and south facing windows has an en-suite shower room and is vaulted and beamed and incorporates the 18th Century grain-store arrow-slit windows, two further bedrooms are doubles and one single. They are served by the family bathroom with panelled bath, Heritage pedestal wash hand basin, and low flush WC, with Velux window and shower over a spa bath all with period gold fittings.


A beautiful, extensive south-facing lawned garden with walnut, copper beech, maples, fruit trees and a magnificent weeping willow has far reaching views over open countryside towards the Corvedale, Clee and Shropshire Hills which are acclaimed as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The gardens and patio to the main house offer total privacy. There is ample parking for both the Farmhouse and the holiday lets and a newly installed electric

vehicle charging station. A very large lean-to garage is the subject of a Pre-application Approval (TBC 12/03/21) for replacement with an oak framed structure with home office. It currently offers space for both a workshop and parking and can hold a wealth of garden equipment. On the west side of the farm house is a kitchen garden with four large raised beds, fruit trees and a substantial potting shed and yard with washing lines and recycling areas to the North. To the east of The Byre is a new wooden building which has outline planning permission for conversion to a laundry, cycle storage and recycling area for the enlarged letting units.
