A FORMER north Shropshire plant nursery business with a four-bedroomed house, detached garage block and around four acres of surrounding gardens and land will be going under the hammer later this month.

Ladywell Nurseries, in Whixall between Wem and Whitchurch, which has a guide price of £250,000 to £300,000, is included in a collective property and land auction in Shrewsbury on Friday, October 20.

The auction is being organised by Halls, one of the UK’s leading independent firms of estate agents, chartered surveyors, auctioneers and valuers.


Ladywell Nurseries, which is being sold by Halls jointly with Berrys, includes a spacious, Alpine-type designed, detached house that has great potential for extensive refurbishment and modernisation.

The house has a rear entrance hall, kitchen, sitting room, living room, dining room, reception hall and wc on the ground floor and a master bedroom, three further bedrooms and a family bathroom upstairs.

“The house has huge potential for improvement to become a first class family home,” said Halls’ chairman Allen Gittins, who will be conducting the auction.

“There is also a detached double garage block and extensive surrounding gardens which are overgrown and require landscaping.

“The grounds are a major feature of the property, having formerly been used as a nursery,” added Mr Gittins.

“The remains of some glasshouses and nursery structures are still in place but need to be demolished and the whole area landscaped. It is a great project for someone.

“The sale of Ladywell Nurseries provides a most unusual and interesting opportunity to purchase an individual country property in a private and unspoilt rural location.”
