The many attributes of this delightful country residence make it a rare and pleasing find in the heart of the beautiful North Shropshire countryside close to the Welsh border. The local market town of Oswestry, a trading post since the 13th Century, still hosts weekly street and livestock markets and offers a wide range of amenities. The charming market town of Ellesmere boasts both Georgian and half-timbered buildings in medieval streets. The glacial mere, which covers 48 hectares, is a local tourist attraction providing extensive leisure facilities.

Originally an 18th Century traditional Shropshire cottage, the main farmhouse has been considerably extended and now boasts four double bedrooms, two of which have en-suite facilities, and two staircases, rendering the accommodation both versatile and flexible.

The adjacent bungalow, with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, provides a multitude of possibilities including bed and breakfast, extended family accommodation, games room, holiday lets or office space, subject to any necessary planning consents.

Approached via a charming courtyard, The Slades has an abundance of doors and windows which seamlessly meld the gardens and grounds with the cosy but light and airy feel of the property.

The plethora of outbuildings offer scope for a variety of uses or for further development. The lawned gardens to the side and rear of the main house provide ample space for children to play and are home to a sweet sandstone building, believe to be one of the last remaining traditional Shropshire pigsties. Additionally there is a chicken run and raised vegetable beds for those seeking self-sufficiency. The paddocks, which are post and rail fenced, and stable yard with American-style barn, have a separate access from the house allowing the land and stables to be let as a separate unit if required.

Being only 3.5 miles from the A5 trunk road, The Slades is easily accessible whilst being well off the beaten track. Nearby Gobowen train station and international airports within a 90 minute drive provide additional commuter facilities for those needing to travel.

The area is extremely well served educationally with an excellent selection of both primary and secondary state and private schools including Shrewsbury Schools, Oswestry School, Moreton Hall, Ellesmere College, Adcote and Packwood Haugh.

This peaceful rural location makes the property ideal for equestrian use with ready access to many quiet lanes, tracks and bridle paths perfect for exercising horses. Notwithstanding this, the well renowned Prescott Equestrian Centre is found approx. six miles away and offers excellent facilities.

Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the peaceful rural location and prolific facilities offered by this charming property.
