The property: Available to the market for the first time in over fifty years Church House Farm is a Grade II listed property and offers an exciting prospect for a new purchaser in the heart of the highly desirable village of Little Ness. There are a plethora of beautiful original architectural features including sash windows, internal exposed beams, quarry tiled floor, hand turned oak staircase and a stunning Edwardian fireplace with matching cabinetry and panelling to the drawing room. The bathroom has recently been refurbished at considerable expense.
Church House Farm is currently home to three generations and has currently been designed to include both a ground and first floor kitchen. The accommodation can easily be reconfigured back to create a substantial family home in the heart of this desirable village.
The ground floor offers two substantial and flexible reception rooms with far reaching views across the fields to the front. The light filled drawing room (currently a ground floor bedroom) to the left has a decorative Edwardian fireplace with full height china cabinets and half height panelling making an elegant room for entertaining. The sitting room is a friendly and less formal room with exposed beams and stone fireplace. To the side the large breakfast kitchen is fitted with French oak units with a decorative plate rack all around the room and original quarry tiled floor. The wooden conservatory, ground floor W.C, utility and boiler room completes the ground floor.
There are two staircases to Church House Farm with the formal hand turned oak staircase to the front hall and the back stairs leading off the kitchen. To the first floor are two large double bedrooms (one currently used as a first floor sitting room) and a secondary kitchen that has been fitted with contemporary units under wood effect work surfaces. This charming space would make a superb dressing room and en suite bathroom which, when combined with the large bedroom to the front would make a very fine principle bedroom suite.
The family bathroom has been extensively and comprehensively refitted in a stylish and well-designed format with white sanitary ware including twin basins, freestanding bath and a spacious walk in shower with complementary wall tiling in a stone finish and Karndean flooring as well as a dedicated built in dressing table.
To the second floor are two large double bedrooms with exposed beams and a shower room.
Services: Mains electric, water and drainage. Oil fired central heating.

The private walled gardens of Church House Farm offer a peaceful rural oasis to this country home. The views from the gardens are superb. To the front they are across open Shropshire countryside and to the rear they rise upwards across further fields to the attractive backdrop of Little Ness Church. Fully walled in sandstone they are mainly laid to lawn with a small orchard to the rear. At the side of the house, by the conservatory is a large wooden outbuilding and a further courtyard garden offering space for al fresco entertaining.
