A 194-acre Shropshire organic dairy farm, set in a glorious rural location near Shrewsbury and packed with potential, is for sale by informal tender with a guide price of £3.25 million.

 

Halls, one of the UK’s leading independent firms of estate agents, chartered surveyors, auctioneers and valuers, are selling Hall Farm, Cruckmeole, near Hanwood on behalf of brothers Andrew and Roger Bebb.

Hall Farm has 194 acres of pastureland, two houses, traditional and modern farm buildings and is situated just outside the hamlet of Cruckmeole, under a mile from Hanwood village and six miles from Shrewsbury.

 

“The sale of Hall Farm offers prospective purchasers an unusual opportunity to acquire a highly productive, organic dairy and livestock set up, with arable potential,  in a convenient and beautiful part of rural Shropshire,” said Halls director James Evans.

 

He added that there is potential to divide the farmhouse, which has nine bedrooms, into a third home. The houses provide opportunities for multi-generational living, staff accommodation, holiday lets or assured shorthold lets.

The first floor has seven bedrooms and two bathrooms and the second floor has two further bedrooms and a shower room. The farmhouse sits adjacent to the farmyard with gardens to the front and side..

A snug and study are galleried and two staircases rise to the first floor where there are three bedrooms and a family bathroom..

 

The traditional farm buildings boast a wealth of character and are complemented by modern, purpose-built, livestock and dairy buildings.

 

Set around concreted yards, the traditional buildings have potential for change of use, subject to planning consent, while the modern buildings include a milking parlour, collection yard, cubicle shed, loose housing sheds, silage clamps and slurry store.

 

The primarily Grade 3, fertile pastureland has held organic status since 2001 and lies in one block, conveniently divided by a hardcore access road. The fields range from five to more than 40 acres and are ideal for grazing livestock, mowing and arable cultivation.
