A farm on the Powys-Shropshire border is currently up for sale for the first time in decades, with a guide price of £1.3 million.

Described as having “huge potential”, the rural property is located near Halfway House, between Welshpool and Shrewsbury, available as a whole or in two lots through Shrewsbury agents Halls.

Upper Wigmore Farm, on Station Road, includes a four-bedroomed farmhouse which has been renovated and extended to a high specification, a range of modern and traditional former farm buildings, a converted building for entertaining and more than nine acres of pasture and orchard.

The property is on offer as a whole or in two lots through Halls, as an extra 26.5 acres of arable land, which has a guide price of £400,000, is available as a separate lot or can be purchased with the rest of the farm.


The farm has been owned by the same family for several decades, and underwent renovations and extensions in 2018.

However, the brick farmhouse still has many original features, including exposed beams and framework.

The farmhouse has a large, well-maintained garden with shrub and flower borders and an orchard to both the front and rear, together with a large patio seating area.

Parking space is provided on a tarmacadam surfaced driveway to the side of the house, with more parking in the rear yard. Some of the property's outbuildings  include a single garage, boiler and store room and a three-bay, open fronted car port.

The former farm buildings include a steel framed cattle shed, an open sided Dutch barn with lean-to shed and a part-lofted, traditional brick range and lean-to, currently used as a workshop and for storage.

Estate agents Halls added: “These buildings have great potential for a variety of uses, including equestrian.

“An exciting and unusual feature is a detached, brick building adjacent to the farmhouse and garden which has been converted to create a large area for entertaining with superb views from its fully glazed frontage. The building is suitable for a multitude of alternative uses.”

The grassland, which is currently used for grazing, is divided into separate areas, with one of them hosting an orchard. The other lot is made up of over 26 acres of arable land, divided into two parcels next to the farm.
