Full description

A period detached country cottage of immense charm and character standing in magnificent landscaped gardens with outbuildings and pasture paddocks extending, in all, to approximately 4.5 acres. The property stands in a most sought after rural location on the edge of the popular village of Overton-On-Dee.

Description

Halls are delighted with instructions to offer Argoed Cottage, on Argoed Lane, just outside the village of Overton-On-Dee, for sale by private treaty.

Argoed Cottage is a superbly appointed period country cottage of great character standing in superbly landscaped gardens together with an extensive range of outbuildings and three grassed paddocks extending, in all, to approximately 4.5 acres or thereabouts.

The property, which is believed to, originally, date back some 250 years ago offers most attractively appointed internal accommodation of great charm which retains many original features to include exposed ceiling and wall timbers, ordinal fireplaces etc. Whilst retaining these features the property offers deceptively spacious family accommodation at present, comprising a reception hall, inner hallway, cloakroom, utility room, dining hall, garden room, kitchen, sitting room and snug on the ground floor together with four first floor bedrooms (ensuite shower room serving bedrooms three and four), separate WC and a family bathroom. The property has the benefit of oil fired central heating and is presented for sale with the fitted carpets included in the purchase price.

The gardens are a most notable feature of the property and are magnificently landscaped providing a wonderful setting all the year round. They briefly comprise extensive lawned areas with a wide variety of flowering trees, shrubs and plants together with a productive vegetable garden. The gardens are complimented by a most useful range of well maintained traditional outbuildings.

The land is a principal feature of the property and is retained within three separate grass paddocks, ideal for the grazing of all kinds of livestock, if required, particularly horses. The property should be noted, therefore, by those with equestrian interests.

The sale of Argoed Cottage does, therefore, provide an extremely unusual opportunity to purchase such a well situated and well appointed period residence of such charm and character with superb gardens and pasture paddocks in this particularly popular rural setting, close to the village of Overton-On-Dee.

Halls, have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending an internal inspection.

Situation

Argoed Cottage is situated just outside the village of Overton-On-Dee.

The county towns of Chester (18 miles) and Shrewsbury (25 miles) are also within easy commuting distance.

The Directions

From Ellesmere proceed North on the A528 to the village of Overton-On-Dee. At the T-junction in Overton-On-Dee bear left signposted 'Wrexham A528', continue out of village for a short distance and take the first turning right down Argoed Lane.
