Harper Graduate Joins Balfours


An appointment has been made as part of a land agent’s continued growth. Charlotte Jacob has joined Balfours land agency team as an assistant agent.

The appointment gives Charlotte double reason to celebrate, not only landing her model  job on completion of the Rural Enterprise and Land Management (REALM) course at Harper Adams University, but later this month she will attend her graduation ceremony.

Charlotte will be working on estates throughout Shropshire and mid Wales, while adding to her portfolio for her Assessment of Professional Competence, with final exams 18 months. Says Balfours partner, Tim Perkins: “Charlotte is taking to the challenges that are part of everyday work for a rural surveyor and she is proving to be an adaptable team player.”

Coming from Worcestershire, it was a work experience opportunity which inspired Charlotte to undertake the three year REALM course. Now with exams now out of the way, for 18 months at least, 22 year old Charlotte is free to enjoy her passion for music and surfing during her spare time.”

One Of The Oldest Homes In The Village


Some properties are an integral part of the village – and the grade II timber framed Smithy House, is one such property. It is on the market for the first time in nearly 40 years.

The four bedroom 17th century house is found in Ruyton XI Towns, a large village which provides a raft of facilities, including primary and prep schools, village store, garage and Inn. A selection of private and state secondary schools is also to be found within a 15 mile radius. Oswestry and Shrewsbury are each a comfortable commute of some ten miles.

Set within a quarter of an acre of mature gardens and grounds, Smithy House has three main reception rooms plus a conservatory, kitchen, pantry and ground floor wet room. Agent, Duncan Scobie of Balfours says: “From the sandstone inglenooks and conservatory base to the wonderful web of timbers, this is a very unique and charming property. It is well laid out with each of the reception rooms of good proportions.

An ivy covered archway leads to the rear garden, an oasis where lawns are laced by specimen trees and an abundance of shrubs.  Duncan adds: “Smithy House has a fascinating history, starting life as a two bay thatched home, then a farmhouse, after which until the mid-1950s it was a blacksmiths home with workshop - now replaced with a driveway and garage.

Smithy House is marketed by Balfours with a guide price of £355,000, for more information call Duncan Scobie on 01743 353511.

New Builds – Three, Four and Five Bedrooms


Anyone seeking a home in north Shropshire should check out three new builds launched within the Tedsmore Grange development.

Situated in a parkland landscape on the edge of West Felton village, the properties range from the Haughton (a three bedroom bungalow), to the Aston (a four bedroom home) and the Felton (with five bedrooms).

Marketed by Balfours, Head of Sales, Alistair Hilton, comments “This is a fantastic opportunity to tap into phase II of this 35 home development, with properties due to be completed between the end of December this year and March 2018.”

Each is built to exacting standards by Dennis Edwards Homes and each is equipped with spacious living areas. The Haughton provides one en-suite room within its £305,00 guide price. The four bedroom Aston is a two storey home that also has an en-suite bedroom and a single garage within its £285,000 guide price.

The Felton steps up to two en-suites, plus fitted wardrobes throughout. It is equipped with underfloor heating and a log-burning stove; a double garage is also part of the £365,000 package.

Alistair adds: “The Tedsmore homes merit viewing as they have three significant points in their favour; namely, the development which is in a fabulous location benefitting from local village amenities including shops, a village hall and dedicated green open spaces with mature trees. Meanwhile Oswestry, Shrewsbury and Chester are all within easy striking distance, with major cities and airports also very commutable. Thirdly, walk into a Dennis Edwards Home and you are aware of the exacting craftsmanship that has gone into the build and the finish.”
