The property was originally part of the Shugborough Estate and when the current owners bought the property it was a modest, two bedroom home which they have extensively extended and refurbished.

The property has been utilised by the current owners as a family home and at one time the keeping of their competition horses. It has the potential to be used for a number of different home businesses.

Baswich Farm is situated on the edge of the County Town of Stafford in the heart of Staffordshire. There is a wide choice of local schooling, including a very good primary school and grammar schools. The property is in the catchment area for both Walton High School and Blessed William Howard Catholic High School. The local shops are within walking distance, and within about a five minute drive, the centre of Stafford provides a good selection of local amenities.
