Situation: Great House stands within the pretty hamlet of Hopton Heath, situated within the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The nearby village of Leintwardine has a village shop, post office, butchers and primary school and further amenities can be found in Craven Arms.

To the southeast is Ludlow, a thriving market town and an architectural gem with a lively community feel, busy with events and festivals throughout the year. It has an international reputation for food and drink with many excellent restaurants and cafes, enhanced by the area's abundance of good quality producers.

The county town of Shrewsbury lies to the north and Hereford is to the south. Birmingham and the West Midlands are commutable with many convenient rail links. Hopton Heath has a local rail station, Heart of Wales, routes through to Shrewsbury and a bus route to Ludlow.

There are excellent state and independent schools in the area including Bedstone, Moor Park and Shrewsbury School. Ludlow Golf Club and Ludlow National Hunt racecourse are within approximately fifteen minute drive.

Great House is a delightful and beautifully presented semi-detached country home with fabulous views. Well-appointed throughout, the ground floor accommodation comprises: entrance hall, sitting room with log burner, second sitting room / family room with log burner, dining room with log burner, rear boot room, larder, well-equipped kitchen / breakfast room, WC and a potential bedroom currently used as a workshop.

On the first floor there are three double bedrooms, including one with en suite, two single bedrooms, shower room and family bathroom.

The gardens are lawned both to the front and rear. In addition to the main house, there is a paddock with a summer house plus existing planning permission for a double garage with workshop. The overall package is a rare opportunity set in an idyllic position in one of Shropshire's most sought after areas surrounded by countryside designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The building plot is available via separate negotiation. Adjacent to the paddock is a separate plot with outline planning permission for a four bedroom house and garage. This offers huge flexibility and potential to develop the property further. This could easily be utilised for multi-generational living or converted into guest accommodation as a potential holiday let or auxiliary accommodation for a relative. Outline planning consent was granted on the 7th September 2020 for the erection of a two storey house with garage on the plot. Ref:19/04742/OUT.

Please Note: A shared track leads from the front of the property around to the rear onto a private drive owned by Great House over which the adjacent properties enjoy a right of way.

Vendors have confirmed they are chain free.
