Across the sweeping driveway lies an impressive detached timber-clad annexe, offering a world of potential. Downstairs, a double garage, log store, and office/gym room provide practical solutions, while upstairs, an open-plan living area with kitchenette, shower room, and double bedroom awaits. Imagine this as a lucrative holiday let, a private haven for family or guests, or an independent living space for loved ones. Step outside onto the raised deck and be mesmerized by the panoramic views of the Shropshire Hills.

Beyond the walls, tranquil havens unfold. Immerse yourself in the vast lawns and breath-taking countryside views, breathing in the fresh air and embracing the quiet serenity of your surroundings.
