Property Description

A handsome country house, recently renovated and extended to an extremely high standard. Situated on the edge of the popular north Shropshire village of Lyneal, it has a range of useful outbuildings and land extending to around 2.7 acres.

DESCRIPTION

Halls are delighted with instructions to offer Chapel Farm at Lyneal, near Ellesmere, for sale by private treaty.

Chapel Farm is a handsome 7-bedroom country house, recently renovated and extended to an extremely high standard. Situated on the edge of the popular north Shropshire village of Lyneal, it has a range of useful outbuildings and land extending to around 2.7 acres.

Renovated and extended in 2013, with the help of renowned architect Graham Moss, Chapel Farm has great style. The accommodation (extending to 3735 sq ft) includes, on the ground floor, a Reception Hall, Drawing Room, Study, super open plan Kitchen/Breakfast/Family Room, Utility Room, Boot Room, Sitting Room and Cloakroom, together with five first floor Bedrooms (Master Bedroom Suite with Ensuite Bathroom and Dressing Room) and a Family Bathroom, as well as two further Bedrooms and a Shower Room on the second floor. The property boasts a wealth of interesting features to include internal timber work, attractive fireplaces and sash windows, accompanied by the modern day conveniences of a total control five-door electric Aga, partial under floor heating and predominantly double glazed windows.

Outside, the property is complimented by a gravelled 'in and out' drive with ample space for parking and manoeuvring a good number of vehicles, fronted by an attractive brick and slate roofed building which has been fully refurbished. At present, this is a home office but it has potential for alternative uses (subject to LA consent).

The gardens are lovely, with a south facing paved patio area, providing an ideal space for outdoor entertaining, leading on to extensive lawns, flanked by a number of well stocked floral and herbaceous borders.

There is a wild flower meadow and recently planted orchard, as well as a vegetable plot.

A back drive leads to a hard standing area fronted by a brick and timber multi-purpose outbuilding, currently divided into three stables and a most useful store. There is an adjacent pole barn, utilised for machinery and fuel storage.

The land is currently in one enclosure of permanent pasture, ideal for the grazing of a variety of animals. The property extends, in all, to 2.7 acres, or thereabouts.

The sale of Chapel Farm does, therefore, provide a rare opportunity for purchasers to acquire a substantial period country house, presented to a high standard with most useful outbuildings and land, situated in this popular semi-rural location.

SITUATION

Chapel Farm is situated in an attractive and peaceful semi-rural location on the outskirts of Lyneal, convenient to the nearby town of Ellesmere (4 miles), which has an excellent range of local shopping, recreational and educational facilities. The closest Railway Station is situated at Wem (6 miles) providing access to London in circa 2hrs 30 minutes. The county town of Shrewsbury (16 miles) is easily accessible by car and train offering a more comprehensive range of amenities of all kinds. There is an excellent range of local state schools, together with well known private schools to include Ellesmere College, Shrewsbury School, Shrewsbury High School for girls, Adcote School, Packwood Haugh and Moreton Hall.

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.
