Set within a superb 2.5 acre plot overlooking stunning Staffordshire countryside is The Old Barn, an individual country residence benefitting from spacious extended interiors, four double bedrooms and a beautiful garden plot with a paddock. Originally converted from an character barn, the property has been extended and remodelled over time to create a spacious family home with further potential to tailor the property and plot to the next owners requirements. The Old Barn enjoys complete privacy to all sides, is bordered by farmed agricultural land and is serviced by oil fired central heating and double glazing. The property also has the option to take over the running of a lucrative on-site luxury holiday boarding business for dogs.
The interiors comprise briefly reception hall, family room, dining kitchen, study, utility and cloakroom to the ground floor, with an impressive lounge to the first floor opening out to a balcony where the gardens, views and peaceful setting can be appreciated. Also to the first floor are three double bedrooms, a dressing room, master en suite and bathroom, with a fourth bedroom/gym with refitted cloakroom to the ground floor. The enviable grounds extend to a generous 2.5 acres of beautifully landscaped formal gardens with a pool and a Koi pond and an elevated grass paddock. Outbuildings include a Finnish BBQ hut, two stables and a barn/wood store ideal for equestrian use, and there is a double garage and workshop accessed off the driveway which sits beyond a secure electric gated entrance.
Offering plenty of flexibility for a home-run business, the luxury log cabin style boardings were founded by the current vendors around 12 years ago and maintain a 5 star rating. The facility is formed by a safely enclosed courtyard housing a kitchen, 12 bespoke log cabins with outdoor runs, a shared kennel and an office, and offers potential to be taken over, or for adapting to suit a different business.
The property enjoys an enviable setting amongst stunning Staffordshire countryside, with convenient access to local amenities and commuter routes. Nearby Abbots Bromley offers an excellent range of amenities including shops, cafes and pubs and the Cathedral City of Lichfield lies a short drive away, providing further shopping and leisure facilities as well as two rail stations with direct links to Birmingham and London (in 80 minutes). There are a number of equestrian centres nearby including Eland Lodge, Cannock Chase, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is around 15 minutes drive, and Blithfield Reservoir lies 5 minutes away where a sailing club can be found. The property is ideally placed for travel along the A38, A5 and M6 Toll, Birmingham International and East Midlands Airports are both within an easy drive and the property is well placed for a range of independent schools including Foremarke Prep, Lichfield Cathedral and the soon to be reopened Abbots Bromley School.
