Gone to earth – Fox Barn

Written by

Fox Barn is a home worthy of horn blowing. Situated six miles north of Shrewsbury, this grade II listed barn conversion is immaculate in its presentation. Who could blame any fox for going to ground here?

Set in 2.5 acres of grounds, including landscaped gardens and paddock, Fox Barn, Fitz, offers three or four bedroom accommodation. However it is the reception rooms which add the real exhilaration to this house hunt.

“A” frame beams both lift and anchor the character in the entrance hall, kitchen diner and sitting room. It is the ceiling, open to the eaves which give each of these spacious rooms a truly airy feel. The kitchen island and storage is well planned sitting comfortably, within pleasing social and practical range of the dining table – this is the sort of kitchen diner which enticed us away from formal dining.

Across the entrance hall the sitting room is equally attractive. The stainless steel flue from the woodburner snakes its way up into the eaves as a feature in its own right, and linking 21st century technology with oak beams which not so long ago sheltered cows chewing their cud and new born lambs. 

Bedroom accommodation comprises of a ground floor master suite, together with a second bedroom or study. On the first floor there are another two bedrooms sharing the family bathroom. There is a double garage.

Beyond the grounds are views of rural Shropshire at its best, including the village Church. The amenities of Fitz and Baschurch are close to hand, yet this property is 15 minutes’ drive from the vibrant county town of Shrewsbury.

Fox Barn is marketed by Balfours with a guide price of £575,000, for more information call Clemmie Daborn on 01743 353511.
