Halls are delighted with the instructions to offer Ashgrove, Church Lane, St. Martins, for sale by private treaty.

Ashgrove is a substantial 4/5 bedroom period village house with an attached modern purpose-built 9 bedroom former residential nursing home, all now requiring complete refurbishment with immense potential to become a family home with an attached annexe or offices, or for refurbishing as a residential nursing home with gardens also offering development potential, situated in a convenient edge of village centre location.

The internal accommodation is now in need of complete refurbishment and currently provides interesting period accommodation in the main house with three large reception rooms, a ground floor bedroom, kitchen and downstairs cloakroom on the ground floor together with four first floor bedrooms and a bathroom with a further two attic rooms. Attached to one side of the main house is the former purpose built nursing home including nine bedrooms, a residents' lounge, bathroom and separate WC.

Outside there are lawned gardens to either side which may offer development potential as well as an extensive paved patio area. To the front of the property is a gravelled parking area.

The property extends, in all, to around 0.5 of acre.

The sale of Ashgrove, does, therefore, provide a rare opportunity for purchasers to acquire a substantial period property with an attached modern purpose built nursing home building with the potential for a variety of usages (subject to local authority consent).


Ashgrove is situated a short distance from the centre of the popular North Shropshire village of St.Martins, which has excellent local amenities to include a well known Supermarket, Post Office, Public house, Petrol filling station and Primary and Secondary schools. The larger centres of Oswestry (6 miles), Shrewsbury (23 miles) and Wrexham (11 miles) are, also, easily accessible by car, all of which have a more comprehensive range of amenities of all kinds.


From the centre of St. Martins (with Stans Supermarket on your right) proceed in the direction of Oswestry and turn left into Church Lane. Proceed for a short distance and turn right (unsigned) down a private drive (just before Church Fields) which leads to only a handful of properties.

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.
