Shropshire arable and livestock farm on market at £2.6m
The Firs, Moortown, High Ercall, 10 miles from Telford, comprises a substantial four bedroomed farmhouse, an extensive range of modern and traditional farm buildings and 207 acres of primarily arable land.
The farm, which is being sold jointly by Shrewsbury-based Halls and Telford-based Savills as a whole or in two lots, ought to appeal to a range of buyers, either as an enterprise in its own right or to supplement a larger unit.
Approached along a tarmacadam drive, the farmhouse offers spacious, comfortable and well laid out accommodation. The ground floor has a garden room, dining room with doors to the garden, lounge, kitchen with exposed beams and an Aga, pantry, cellar, utility, shower room and front and rear hallways.
On the first floor there are four bedrooms, a bathroom, linen room and office and a further staircase gives access to two attic rooms.
The farmhouse has oil-fired central heating and a large Passat wood burner, which is located in an adjacent lean-to. The farmhouse and buildings are supplied by a borehole water supply.
The garden is currently laid to lawn with shrub and flower borders, fruit trees, a vegetable patch and a greenhouse. A traditional range of domestic outbuildings include a single garage, two further garages, tack room, two stables, a range of five former pig sties, two outside wcs, potting shed and garden and log stores.

The land has been enhanced by the current owners establishing more than two miles of new hedgerows in recent years. Access to all fields is extremely easy with a former airfield perimeter road being a very useful feature.
Currently within an Entry Level Stewardship scheme until September 30, 2018, the land has loam soil classified as Grade II and III on the Land Classification Map. Single Farm Payment entitlements will be transferred to the purchaser upon completion, subject to approval from the Rural Payments Agency.
