The Property

Set in the stunning South Shropshire countryside you will find 2 Frodesley House Farm Barns, a beautiful Grade II listed barn conversion, packed full of charm and character. A graveled driveway providing ample parking greets you upon your arrival, as you step out of the car you will immediately notice the tranquil surroundings, while you cast your eyes over the intricate brickwork before you. A stable door beckons you into the farmhouse style kitchen diner. Fitted with a range of matching wooden wall and base units, exposed brickwork and a tiled floor add character, the kitchen really is the hub of the home and is sure to be somewhere you will spend a lot of time with your family. Off the kitchen you will find the utility room, enabling you to keep some of the household chores out of sight, it also doubles up as a great bedroom for the dogs as it has a door straight to the garden. From the kitchen a hallway takes you past the cloakroom, which has a WC and washbasin, and onto the lounge. This is the place to be when you really want to relax, warm and homely with a great view out to the garden. If this room doesn't make you want to pull up an armchair, grab a good book and settle down in front of the fire then nowhere will. For those occasions when relaxing is the last thing on your mind and you feel like entertaining, this next room is a real showstopper to impress your guests with. The dining room could come straight from a Hollywood movie, with high vaulted ceilings, imposing roof timbers, exposed brickwork and a wall of windows to allow in lots of natural light, there is more than enough space for all of your friends and family. Located off the dining room is the ground floor bedroom, complete with an en-suite shower room, this is the perfect guest suite, especially for someone with mobility difficulty.

The first floor is accessed via a wooden staircase rising from the dining room to the landing, which has two built in cupboards for extra storage. The are three good sized bedrooms on the first floor, the two principle rooms both have lovely views to the rear, with the master having the benefit of an en-suite shower room. Completing the first floor accommodation is the family bathroom. The bathroom continues the theme of this property, it is spacious, light and airy, yet has a touch of character and luxury, as highlighted by the roll top bath and walk-in shower cubicle. The final stop on our tour of the building is the garage, very useful as you would expect, it has power, lighting and a cold water tap, but there is a more to it than first meets the eye. It has a high vaulted ceiling which extends above the ground floor bedroom and en-suite, with a little imagination and the necessary planning permissions, there is most definitely scope here for further accommodation should you want it.

Not to be overshadowed by the fabulous accommodation, the gardens too are a real feature of this home. Private, secure and backing onto open countryside, you will be able to carve out your own slice of 'the good life'. Already in place are the chicken run and raised vegetable beds, both essential for country living. There is a level lawn for the children to run around and a graveled, brick lined path to lead you from one end to the other. A flagstone patio sits directly off the utility room and lounge as is perfect for barbecue season, although this a garden you will enjoy all year round.
