Buyers are being sought for a unique development of 23 individual barn conversions within an exceptional Welsh border Victorian complex, which was originally part of a model farm built by Liverpool banker John Naylor.

Nantcribba Barns at Forden, near Welshpool are being marketed by joint agents Halls and Strutt and Parker with prices ranging from £260,000 to £425,000. There are 11 four bedroomed homes, 11 with three bedrooms and one with two bedrooms.

The impressive development also includes parking spaces for each home, garaging, gardens, courtyards and seven acres of communal grounds, including a pond, meadow and walkways with access to woodlands. Visitor parking is available in the main courtyard.

Situated in rolling hills just three miles from the picturesque former county town of Montgomery, the barns offer a wealth of original features surrounded by the beautiful Marches countryside. Welshpool is within five miles and Shrewsbury 22 miles to the east.

Originally built by the Naylor family in the mid-19th-century as part of a farming innovation at Leighton Estate, near Welshpool, this Victorian development would have most certainly been at the forefront of design. 

The barns retain many original features, including Welsh Empress slate roofs, traditional king and queen post roof trusses, cobbled and granite courtyards, beautiful arched walk-throughs, windows and doorways and a red brick construction associated with the High Victorian era.

The development is split into 23 units, seven of which are found in the main column, which is noted for its tremendous width. Branching from this main column, a number of wings and then sub wings create natural courtyards.

No expense has been spared on the homes, which ooze quality and feature contemporary Prague Ivory kitchens designed and fitted by local craftsmen with a range of integrated appliances. Bathrooms and wet rooms comprise bespoke contemporary white suites with chrome fittings, wall and floor tiling, integrated mirrors and lighting.

Electrical switches and sockets are in polished chrome, all rooms feature contemporary light fittings and TV sockets for digital and satellite signals with Sky are found in the living areas and master bedrooms.

Built in bedroom wardrobes are optional, internal doors and flooring are solid oak, kitchen areas have limestone flags and the remaining floors have thick pile oatmeal carpet.

The traditional layout of the development creates a tremendous array of both private and communal areas and the central courtyard, with its solid granite floor, is a fantastic focal point.

Viewing is by appointment with Halls’ Welshpool office on Tel: 01938 555552 or Strutt and Parker’s Shrewsbury office on Tel: 01743 284200.
