Not even copious amounts of Lincoln green paint can disguise the fact that Robin Hood Farm in Tanworth in Arden needs a little work.
But the country house and buildings in Danzey Green Lane are not being marketed as a home that is ready to move into . This is very much a project.
At its heart is an early Georgian brick and tile farmhouse which needs complete refurbishment.
It is surrounded by barns, outbuildings and storage buildings, most of which have also seen better days.
If the buyer decided not to restore the home it might be possible, subject to planning permission, to redevelop instead.
As it stands, the house has a ground floor with a sitting room, a kitchen, a utility area that is actually bigger than the kitchen, a substantial walk-in pantry and a cloakroom with access to a downstairs bathroom with shower.
On the first floor there are four double bedrooms, one with restricted ceiling height and two with built-in wardrobes. There is currently no upstairs bathroom.
There is also a cellar room in the basement.
Attached brick outbuildings include two two-storey barns, five brick and tile stables and two storage areas.
There is also an open Dutch barn, pole barns, a courtyard and brick and tile storage buildings.
The pretty village of Tanworth in Arden has a pub, picturesque parish church, junior and infant schools and a golf club.
Though the setting is rural, it is not isolated. Solihull is eight miles away while Henley in Arden and Hockley Heath are both four. The NEC, airport and train station are around a 20-minute drive away.
Robin Hood Farm is up for sale by informal tender with offers invited by 12 noon on July 9.
