Standing alone just outside the very charming village of Hill Ridware, this impressive detached country home, with scope and potential to modernise, offers not only a generous accommodation layout but also an extensive range of outbuildings suitable for a variety of uses. Standing in all approximately 1.6 acres the property represents a rare opportunity to acquire a substantial detached dwelling with such versatile accommodation use. The property lies just some 7 miles from the cathedral city of Lichfield, and 4 miles from Rugeley town centre. Excellent facilities are available in both areas with nearby Armitage with Handsacre providing good local facilities. Commuters will certainly appreciate the convenience of the area with both an excellent road and rail network providing ease of journey to many Midland commercial centres and beyond. The property is available with the benefit of no upward chain and the potential for an early completion, and an early viewing would be strongly encouraged. We understand that the solar panels are wholly owned by the vendors and are transferable.
