Historic Northwood House Farm Hits the Market: A Rural Retreat with 18th-Century Charm

In a picturesque corner of Shropshire, nestled near Ellesmere, the venerable Northwood House Farm has emerged on the market, offering a quintessential slice of country living for a discerning buyer.

Priced at £2 million, this expansive property encompasses an eight-bedroom period farmhouse, an array of traditional and modern farm structures, 108 acres of verdant pastures and woodlands, enchanting gardens, and even a tennis court, making it a truly unique and covetable find.

A meandering driveway grants access to this rural gem, now listed for sale by esteemed estate agent Halls. The property is available in its entirety or as separate parcels, providing flexibility for potential buyers.

Jon Quinn, the astute managing director of Halls, spearheads the sale and attests to the diverse appeal of this farmstead.

He notes,

“It is unusual for a first-class farm such as this to become available for sale in this area. There is significant potential for adaptation of the farm buildings or provision of new buildings, according to a purchaser’s requirements.”

Believed to trace its origins back to the 18th century, the period farmhouse exudes a timeless charm and offers generously proportioned living space spread across three floors.

The ground level introduces a farmhouse-style kitchen and breakfast area, a living room adorned with a captivating inglenook fireplace housing an inset Clearview multi-fuel burning stove, two additional reception rooms, a rear entrance porch, a convenient shower room, a utility room, a workshop, and a trove of invaluable cellars.

The upper floors host eight bedrooms, thoughtfully divided over two levels, with the first floor also boasting a family bathroom. Each room resonates with the echoes of history, blending seamlessly with modern amenities.

The meticulously tended gardens form a delightful complement to the residence, featuring an expansive front patio terrace that beckons outdoor gatherings.

Sweeping lawns cradle a shimmering pool on one side, while a quaint orchard graces the other, all crowned by a resilient, all-weather tennis court.

A constellation of farm buildings is strategically positioned around well-appointed concreted yards. Among them, a traditional range beckons with latent potential – an ideal canvas for conversion into accommodation for a dependent relative, versatile office space, a fitness haven, or a sought-after holiday let (subject to planning consent).

Meanwhile, the contemporary structures lend themselves seamlessly to livestock housing and fodder storage or stand ready for a transformation tailored to equestrian pursuits.

The farmhouse and its accompanying structures are ensconced within fertile grasslands, custom-tailored for grazing livestock, including horses. Approximately 14 acres of amenity woodland further enhance the property’s appeal, harmoniously melding nature with the agricultural tapestry.

Many fields benefit from a mains water supply, while a selection boasts convenient access from Lion Lane. Historically, the farm garnered recognition for its high-quality partridge shoots, adding another layer of allure for those with sporting inclinations.

Viewings are by appointment only and can be arranged through Halls’ Ellesmere office, at 01691 622602.
