High Lane, Brown Edge Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire

Property ID: 27981051

A fantastic opportunity to purchase a detached Grade II listed property alongside a good range of modern and traditional farm buildings all standing in 53 acres or thereabouts. The property is in need of modernisation and improvement but has considerable potential to provide good sized living accommodation. The outbuildings provide an opportunity for alternative uses (subject to necessary consents). A number of the buildings already provide loose boxes suitable for stabling and therefore the property will appeal to those with equestrian pursuits.
Viewing essential to realise the potential and opportunity on offer.
