Greenfield House is a superbly situated and deceptively spacious detached country house appointed to a high standard with lovely gardens, pasture paddocks and stable block, extending, in all, to just under 2.5 acres, in a super unspoilt rural setting, yet with easy access to the A5 and Shrewsbury.

Outside, there is a patio terrace to the rear of the house, making a lovely setting for outside dining/entertaining etc., and a super front lawn/orchard area with a number of fruit trees.

The equestrian facilities are particularly worthy of note and include an excellent stable block with three loose boxes and adjacent open fronted garage space, complimented further by the two pasture paddocks which are ideal for the grazing of all kinds of livestock, particularly horses.

The sale of Greenfield House provides a very unusual and rare opportunity to purchase a substantial and attractively appointed five bedroom detached country house with lovely gardens, excellent stable block and land, in this super unspoilt rural setting. A viewing of this property is highly recommended.

SITUATION

Whilst enjoying this peaceful rural location, the property is conveniently situated, for access to the A5, providing easy access north and south. The centres of Oswestry (9 miles) and Shrewsbury (11 miles) both provide an excellent range of local shopping, recreational and educational facilities. In addition, the A5 provides excellent access to the larger centres of Birmingham, Telford, Chester, Manchester and Liverpool.

Stamp Duty Calculator

Stamp Duty Total

You usually pay Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) on increasing portions of the property price above £125,000 when you buy residential property, eg a house or flat.

There are different rules if you’re buying your first home and the purchase price is £500,000 or less.

You’ll usually have to pay 3% on top of the normal SDLT rates if buying a new residential property means you’ll own more than one.

You won’t pay the extra 3% SDLT if the property you’re buying is replacing your main residence and that has already been sold.
