IN SUMMARY - Rock Farm is a true delight, finished to a high standard, sitting in a generous size plot in a lovely village surrounded by the stunning Shropshire countryside. Viewings are a must.Sellers Insight - "We purchased the property fourteen years ago and I'd say that it was the real combination of the gorgeous setting, original features and great travel links that draw us to the property," says Lucy. "Back then the house itself was a four-square farmhouse. We knew it had a wealth of potential and so we decided to enlist the help of a local architect, who has helped us to realise the property's potential and transform it into what we would consider being a fantastic family home.""Downstairs we've created a more open plan living space, adding a stunning oak-framed, fully-glazed extension that leads seamlessly out from the kitchen. This has provided us with a fabulous living-and-dining space, which is now very much the hub of our home. The underfloor heating and Argon filled glass - is extremely energy efficient. We've also kept all of the stunning period features, so the building retains every bit of its original character and charm. By remodelling the original very large utility space, we have created an additional room, an ideal home office or playroom and we've also improved the bedroom to bathroom ratio. I feel we've taken the house to the next level and transformed it into a beautiful home that is now much more conducive to modern family life.""The house sits within grounds that extend to around one and a half acres," continues Lucy. "We've had some areas professionally landscaped whilst others have a much more natural look and feel. The combination works perfectly and it's a very family-friendly garden with areas for relaxing and entertaining and more than enough space for children to explore and run around in. We currently use the paddock as a play area - they've loved charging around it in their electric ride ons - but it could definitely be used to keep a pony. "The village is a lovely quiet place surrounded by some beautiful rolling countryside," says Lucy. "We have a pub that serves great food, and neighbouring Shawbury has a butcher, a baker, a Co-op, two pubs, a Post Office and a School. For everything else, we usually head into Shrewsbury, which is just over twenty minutes away by car." "The house has been completely renovated and we really couldn't be more pleased with the results. However, there's still the potential to do more. We have quite a substantial cellar that's not tanked, but currently provides excellent storage, and outside is a large brick building that - subject to obtaining the correct permissions - could have development potential."...Read full description
