Farmhouse Of The Moment


Best Country Home Award 2017 with Period Living Magazine and the “most amazing tiny cottage in the UK” are just two of the titles bestowed on Wood Farm House and Turtledove Hideaway.

The two properties currently provide a four bedroom farmhouse and one bedroom cottage within the steading; however they are on the market with planning to extend the farmhouse by up to 49 per cent and complete the conversion of an additional barn into holiday accommodation.

Located at Breaden Heath, six miles from Ellesmere and eight to Whitchurch, in a secluded rural location, Wood Farm House has been renovated and remodelled to provide an “of the moment” home that has won numerous awards, with the cottage featured in 24 international magazines.

Agent, Charlie Giffard of Balfours, reflects: “It is not difficult to see why it has won so many accolades. Both internally and externally the vendor has achieved a total charm with absolute attention to detail finishing to an exacting standard.”

Briefly the farmhouse provides an entrance hall, drawing room, dining area, study, kitchen, utility, and a family room which opens to a decked terrace. First floor accommodation provides two en-suite bedrooms and family shower room for two additional bedrooms.  

Turtledove Hideaway is currently let as holiday accommodation however it would equally suit as an annex, or office. The ground floor is open plan, with one bedroom on the first floor. A second ground floor barn conversion holiday cottage is 75 percent complete.  There is a good sized garden  with mature trees and in character with the timber framed farmhouse.

Charlie adds: “Viewing is essential to take in this hugely successful remodelling which affords a great opportunity to walk in to a designer home.” Wood Farm House is marketed with a guide price of £750,000. For more information call Charlie Giffard on 01743 353511.

Listed Cottages Seek Makeover


A charming clutch of five dilapidated grade II listed cottages within one property is on the market with Balfours.

Tucked away in Dorrington, with easy access to the A49 and in walking distance of all village amenities, 1 to 6 The Fold offers a unique and inspirational project. Head of sales at Balfours, Alistair Hilton says the 17th century cottages require extensive refurbishment and will appeal to those seeking something very unique in the heart of the village.”

Alistair describes that the accommodation extends to nearly 700 square metres which is significant and while they were last inhabited as individual cottages, it may be possible to reduce to one or two dwellings subject to planning consent.

“The cottages are currently configured with one or two ground floor and upstairs rooms each. By perceptively combining 21st century technology with the charm the cottages radiate is likely to produce something truly exciting and unique,” he adds.

1 to 6 Lower Fold is surrounded with good sized gardens and enjoys open views to the east over Cound Brook. New road access to the cottages will be available from the south, while quiet pedestrian access is enjoyed to the north. The five cottages are offered with a guide price of £225,000.

Bungalow Set In Own Woodlands


A unique combination of a bungalow with one and a half acres of woodlands and gardens is on the market with Balfours at Egebolton, near Shawbury. Wyndley represents a very special package.

“This three bedroom bungalow is in a prime and private position, with south-westerly views across Shropshire towards the Wrekin. It enjoys an idyllic site tucked away, yet highly accessible to village facilities in Shawbury, with Shrewsbury and Telford, ten and 14 miles respectively,” says agent Charlie Giffard of Balfours.

Accommodation comprises of a large living room linked to the conservatory; the kitchen breakfast room is a generous 29 feet long, with adjacent dining room. One bedroom benefits from en-suite facilities, while two bedrooms share a bathroom, however they could easily be adapted to provide two additional en-suites.

Charlie adds: “I have no doubt Wyndley has immense appeal, it is well presented and represents a very special lifestyle opportunity.” Balfours are marketing Wyndley with a guide price of £495,000, for more information call Charlie Giffard on 01743 353511.
