Full description

A most interesting and well equipped genuine smallholding comprising a period detached three bedroomed country cottage with surrounding gardens together with a menage, stabling and pasture paddocks extending, in all, to approximately three acres or thereabouts.

Description

Halls are delighted with instructions to offer Brooklyn Cottage at Hampton Wood for sale by private treaty.

Brooklyn Cottage is a genuine smallholding comprising a period detached country cottage believed to, originally, date back over 200 years, with surrounding gardens together with stabling, menage and pasture paddocks extending, in all, to approximately three acres or thereabouts.

The property is in a lovely unspoilt rural setting nestling in the noted undulating North Shropshire countryside and offers much improved and extended internal accommodation of great charm, at present, comprising a ground floor sun room, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, lounge, conservatory, rear entrance hall and bathroom together with three first floor bedrooms (two with ensuite facilities). The property has the benefit of double glazed windows, oil fired central heating and is presented for sale with the fitted carpets and internal blinds included in the purchase price.

The gardens are predominantly to the front and rear of the cottage comprising an easily managed paved patio area to the front with lovely views over open countryside. The gardens to the rear of the property are more 'natural', being on a bank, but have a great variety of flowering shrubs and plants. The gardens have great potential, however, for further landscaping according to ones individual requirements.

The sale of Brooklyn Cottage, does, therefore, provide an extremely rare opportunity to purchase a genuine detached country cottage in a super unspoilt rural setting together with excellent stabling, outbuildings, menage and pasture paddocks extending, in all, to approximately three acres or thereabouts.

Halls strongly recommend an internal inspection of the property to appreciate the lovely location and great potential that the property has to offer. It should be particularly noted for those seeking a genuine detached country cottage or those with animals, especially horses.
