Property Description

Tenure: Freehold

Recently renovated and impeccably presented, Greenfields House was home to a local farming family which had its own farm shop run from the basement and although the meat hooks are long gone, the barrel top cellars and cast-iron safe are period features that have been retained, along with some of the cornicing and picture rails in the main house.

The property offers versatile and well-proportioned accommodation set over three floors, one of which is a self-contained studio basement flat, ideal for those looking for income potential from walkers and tourists alike or for extended family living.

The two brick and Wenlock stone barns can also be utilised further and offer the potential to create an annexe, holiday lets, studio, or workshop, subject to the necessary consents. For those that enjoy history, the one barn used to house the horse drawn fire engine for the town.

Located within a couple of minutes walking distance of the historic town. Much Wenlock, famous for the majestic remains of Wenlock Priory, the Wenlock Olympian Games (which inspired the modern Olympics) and Wenlock Edge which forms part of the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The town boasts many black and white and stone buildings where good local shopping, amenities, educational and recreational facilities can be found. Central to the neighbouring market towns of Bridgnorth (8m) and Ludlow (22m) and the larger centres of Shrewsbury (13m) and Telford (9m) with good road and rail links. Birmingham airport can be reached in just over an hour.

The House
From Bourton Road, the drive to the left leads past the basement entrance door to stone steps and wrought iron railings leading up to the attractive front door with circular leaded lights above opens into the hall which has a distinctive painted wooden floor.

Large windows to two aspects flood the spectacular drawing room with light. An open fireplace at one end with an inset wood burner the other, provides a fine formal room for entertaining.

Along the hall, passing the door down to the cellar below and a useful cloaks cupboard through to the beautifully appointed open plan kitchen with under floor heating and practical pull out cupboards and drawers and fabulous central island with sink and integral dish washer. This impressive kitchen with a step up opens out to a glorious garden dining room with more discreet storage and plenty of space for table and chairs and also a comfy sofa as a more informal seating area. Adjacent to this, a hidden utility. Beyond the kitchen, a useful boot room, WC and an external door outside.

From the hallway, a brick staircase leads down to the two barrel top cellars ideal for wine and storage and also the basement flat. Having its own external entrance, this extremely useful basement provides a sitting room cum bedroom with storage and windows to side leading around to a well-equipped kitchen area, entrance hall and a shower room with WC and hand basin.

A lovely wooden staircase leads up from the hallway to the first floor where in the Georgian part of the house; two good sized double bedrooms with views out across a neighbouring orchard, a family bathroom with linen cupboard and smaller double bedroom can be found. The second half of this floor consists of a study area with two walk in wardrobes off, the master bedroom with fantastic views out to the garden which has a part vaulted ceiling and ensuite bathroom and another generous bedroom with an ensuite shower room, with all of the bathrooms having underfloor heating and radiators.
