North Shropshire farm with bags of potential to be sold by auction next week

A small North Shropshire farm with a country cottage requiring modernisation, a range of outbuildings and nearly nine acres of land will be going under the hammer at a collective property and land auction next week.

Chapel Lane Farm, Bronington, Whitchurch, which has a guide price of £350,000, is one of 13 lots included in the auction organised by Halls at the company’s Shrewsbury headquarters on Friday, July 12 at 3pm.

Halls, a leading regional firm of estate agents, chartered surveyors, auctioneers and valuers, says the cottage, located on the edge of Bronington village, offers excellent potential for comprehensive renovation.

The ground floor includes a living room, conservatory, dining room, kitchen, shower room and boot room, together with two external stores which could be incorporated into the house, subject to planning consent. Upstairs are two bedrooms, a bathroom and a former winch room, which retains the original machinery.

The five outbuildings are in various states of disrepair but which could be renovated or replaced to meet the agricultural, equestrian or domestic needs of the buyer. The pastureland is contained within eight interconnecting enclosures.

The farm is approached along an earthen track, flanked to either side by areas of lawn interspersed by trees and shrubs, which leads to a partially concreted rear courtyard.

The renowned Bettisfield Moss Nature Reserve is nearby and the popular towns of Ellesmere and Whitchurch are both within easy reach.

“This is a very rare opportunity for purchasers to acquire a handsome, detached country cottage with nearly nine acres of land and associated outbuildings, nestled in an idyllic rural location,” said Allen Gittins, Halls chairman who is conducting the auction.

“The land is ideally suited for the grazing of a variety of livestock but may be of particular note of those with equestrian interests, whilst offering excellent potential for equestrian or agricultural development, subject to planning consent.

Viewing is by appointment with Halls’ Ellesmere office on Tel: 01691 622602.
