Black Mountain Farm is a unique 17th Century period home full of character and charm which is set in a superior elevated position in the Upper Clun Valley with far reaching views, privacy and seclusion. Black Mountain Farm would suit various types of buyers. With its land and outbuildings it is eminently suitable for equestrian use or indeed to accommodate any other kind of livestock.

The property is set in a quiet position however you are only just over a mile away from the village of Newcastle. Newcastle lies at the confluence of the River Clun and the Folly Brook, 3 miles west of the small town of Clun. The village has a community hall, primary school and nursery, a church and a pub - The Crown Inn.

The House

Approach to the property is down a private drive which provides access to a gravelled yard area with plenty of parking and access to one of the large outbuildings. Across a courtyard you enter the porch which leads you into the hall. To your right you have access to a useful utility/boot room. Directly opposite the utility room you step up to the farmhouse kitchen complete with oil fired AGA and original features including beamwork and bread oven. From the kitchen you move into the dining room with centre piece fireplace and wood burning stove, a perfect space to entertain. Stairs from here lead up to the first floor accommodation.

Down a secondary hallway there is the impressive living room with oak galleried landing, high vaulted ceiling, Elizabethan fire surround with large wood burner in situ making this an impressive room. Through double doors you access a further reception room which could offer various different uses - either study/library or snug.

Upstairs there are three good sized double bedrooms, and family bathroom. The master bedroom has an ensuite with his and hers sinks.

Next to the main house there is a large office space/tack room with staircase leading up to a loft space/studio above.

Access to the two annexes can be approached either internally or externally. They offer lots of potential including the option of being run as holiday lets which has previously been done by the current owner. Lower Barn is a one bedroom ground floor annex with kitchen, living room with wood burning stove and shower room. This could be incorporated into the main dwelling if required. A central staircase leads to Upper Barn which is a three bedroom annex with kitchen, living room and bathroom. All of the bedrooms offer stunning views. The living room has a gas fireplace and views out over the countryside which can be enjoyed from the extended bay window. A door opens out on to the sun terrace with outstanding views.
