The Hem Farm comprises a first class arable and pasture farm extending to 150.75 acres (61.00 hectares) in total with a detached period farmhouse, mature landscaped gardens, an orchard and range of traditional buildings situated in the centre of the land, tucked away in rural Shropshire. The farmyard and house are accessed at the end of a long sweeping private driveway leading off Hem Lane, a council maintained road. The level land is located within a ring fence encircling the house
and yard.

The Hem Farm is located in stunning countryside in a prominent agricultural area with uninterrupted views of the Shropshire Hills, in particular the Stiperstones and the Devil´s Chair. The farm is located close to the village of Minsterely, a popular rural village with a range of local amenities. Located to the north east of the property is the market town of Shrewsbury. Steeped in history this bustling town was the birth place of Charles Darwin and is home to a castle, a theatre, an excellent range of independent and high street shops and an abundance of popular eateries and bars meaning there really is something for everyone. Nearby schools both in the public and private sector including Shrewsbury School, Shrewsbury High School, Adcote School, Bedstone College and Mary Webb School.

The farmhouse is a well presented traditional house, which has been extended tastefully over time. The original part of the house is believed to date back to the early 1600´s and displays spectacular exposed timber beams and large fireplaces.

Internally, the rooms flow effortlessly into one another from a large porch and boot room, through the spacious family kitchen and breakfast area into a cosy lounge with a Clearview log burning stove and through into a formal dining room and further sitting room. Downstairs, there is also a substantial pantry and a further utility/laundry room.

The staircase leads to the first floor landing with exposed timber beams, 4 bedrooms, a large dressing area attached to the master bedroom, a family bathroom and separate cloakroom.

Throughout the house every room is treated to an abundance of natural light and fabulous views of the surrounding gardens and land through double glazed Everest windows.

To the rear of the house lies a brick paved courtyard leading to a brick and tile building containing garage, coal house and store.

The property benefits from a security system, ample parking and a large garden with colourful mature flower borders, rose beds and quaint pathways leading to a large fruit and vegetable plot and then through into a large orchard containing a multitude of mature traditional apple trees, Victoria and yellow plum trees, pear, cherry
and walnut trees.

The field parcels are bound by mature hedgerows and stock-proof fencing. The land is classified as grade 3 and the soil type is Pinder, which is best suited to cereal and grassland production.
