Sleek barn conversion with land and buildings

12/01/2021

A charming pond adjacent to the winding drive is the perfect prelude to a four bedroom sandstone barn conversion, with nearly seven acres.

Launched to the market by Balfours, Roden Farm Barn is found ten miles north of Shrewsbury at Brandwood, near Myddle. A truly contemporary conversion the property boasts a 12.7 metre long kitchen diner, which is four and a half metres wide with “A” frame timber ceiling adding to the spaciousness.  This is complimented by floor to ceiling glazing, while underfloor heating and a stove ensure both kitchen and dining/living areas are cosy.

A utility and pantry are to be found at the far end, to the opposite end and the centre of this “L” shaped property the hallway, which has a cloakroom, leads to the lounge. The lounge is of generous proportions too and boasts a large gable end of floor to ceiling glazing.

A study with dual aspect glazing and fourth bedroom with en-suite complete the ground floor as it is currently used. The latter equally lends it to segregated homework facilities. There are three bedrooms and three bathrooms on the first floor. The master bedroom, incorporating en-suite and dressing room, benefits from gable end glazing mirroring the lounge.

Charlie Giffard, Balfours Associate Partner, Country House Sales, enthuses: “In addition to a sleekly presented house the steading comes with stables and a storage warehouse offering great potential not only as a family home, but also a home business opportunity.” Roden Farm Barn is marketed with a guide price of £795,000, call 01743 353511.

Ask the Expert, Rory Galliers, BSc (Hons) MRICS FAAV

Balfours Managing Partner

With so many changes happening in farming - losing BPS, the Agricultural Transitional Plan, Environmental Land Management, plus the current effects of Covid and Brexit, how can I future proof my farming business?

 

The pace of change is indeed unprecedented and will surely culminate in challenges and opportunities.  Therefore now is the time to act, reassessing enterprises and restructuring loans. At Balfours we have been exceptionally busy on behalf of clients poring over spreadsheets and business plans and ultimately restructuring loans with the AMC to take advantage of historically low interest rates.

The positive effect of such financial restructuring cannot be underestimated. Land and farm investment is by nature invariably high in capital investment. While many businesses will drill down into the minutia of dairy rations, crop overheads, or cost per head of production, many often miss to revisit their financial costs.

I would urge you that now is precisely the time to reassess your borrowing and bank balance: To future proof your farm. Whether that be for expansion of existing enterprises or development of new business ventures. There are grants and tax opportunities to help as well as historically low interest rates.

Those businesses that have already adapted to direct sell will have a head start because such initiatives must be part of the future. Diversifications into hospitality and leisure will want to draw a line under 2020 – good times will return. Market analysis of tourism is anticipating demand will outstrip UK supply in 2021. 

Finally, but certainly not least, with eye watering levels of debt, the Government will have to raise revenue, so more than ever farmers and landowners need to review capital tax planning to keep their business secure for the next generation.
