Owners Comments - 'The open-plan feel of downstairs has been a great feature and provided a fabulous entertaining space, however the space can be separated in to cosy rooms via beautiful double oak doors when the mood suits. It's a beautiful building which has been carefully restored to make the most of the surrounding countryside and lovely views.' The location is excellent and has offered great convenience for busy family life; 'Ian makes the daily commute to Birmingham from Wellington station, a five-minute journey by car, however the city can be reached by road in forty-minutes,' explains Debbie. With Telford just five-minutes away and Shrewsbury ten, and outstanding schools such as The Old Hall School and Wrekin College close by, this rural home feels far from isolated.
'The position of the Barn makes the most of the sun; lying in bed we can see the sun rise through the bedroom window. During the day, the sun moves around the building to the front where the main south westerly garden is situated, here the large patio area is a real sun trap. Underfloor heating throughout downstairs makes it easy to move furniture whilst the ceramic floor throughout the kitchen, family room, hallway and cloakroom is practical and modern.'
'Our favourite room has to be the open-plan kitchen and family room, it's where we spend most of our time. Being able to cook whilst supervising children doing homework has been great. It's also perfect for entertaining.'
'The garden is very large and has been an amazing space for our children to play outdoor games - it's provided them with both safety and freedom. Despite the generous size of the front and back gardens, they are mainly laid to lawn and easy to maintain.'
'Wrockwardine village, a two-minute walk away, has a children's park with a cycle track, zip wire, swings, slides and climbing frames. The local church is very active and hosts coffee mornings and children's activities. The surrounding area is very beautiful, with lovely nearby walks close at Wrekin and the National Trust's Attingham Park.'
