Halls are delighted with instructions to offer Holly House, on Ossage Lane, Whixall, for sale by private treaty.
Holly House is a superbly situated genuine Smallholding comprising a period 2 / 3 bedroom detached country house with an extensive range of traditional and modern farm buildings, with 7.73 Acres of land, in a lovely unspoilt rural location in the heart of the noted north Shropshire countryside.
The well appointed and versatile internal accommodation is presented to a high standard, at present, comprising a ground floor Utility Room, Bathroom, Kitchen, Lounge, Inner Hall, Study and Dining Room together with 2 / 3 first floor Bedrooms. The property has the benefit of an oil fired central heating system, is double glazed and is presented for sale with the fitted carpets included in the purchase price.
Outside, there are attractively presented gardens, briefly comprising an attractively set paved and gravelled patio terrace and mature shaped lawns.
The outbuildings are particularly worthy of note and are a pleasant mix of traditional and modern, briefly comprising a two storey traditional range building which has great potential for a variety of alternative usages (subject to Planning Permission). These buildings are complimented by a triple stable block, a three bay dutch barn with lean-to loose housing shed and a four bay portal framed multi purpose shed.
The land is a major feature of Holly House and is principally retained within three enclosures of pasture, ideal for the grazing of all kinds of livestock, if required, particularly horses. The property extends, in all, to approximately 7.73 Acres, or thereabouts.
The sale of Holly House therefore provides an unusual opportunity to purchase such a well appointed Smallholding in such a super rural location with such potential for those looking to rear livestock and particularly for those with horses. An inspection is highly recommended.
Holly House is situated in an attractive and unspoilt rural setting in the heart of the noted North Shropshire Countryside. Whilst enjoying this quiet and peaceful setting, it is convenient to the North Shropshire Towns of Wem (3 miles), Whitchurch (6 miles) and Ellesmere (6 miles), all of which, have an excellent range of local shopping, recreational and educational facilities.
