Full description

A surprisingly spacious 6 Bedroom detached village house of immense charm and character extending to over 3,000 sq. ft. with parking and gardens situated in a convenient and popular location in the centre of Overton-On-Dee.

Description - Halls are delighted with instructions to offer Kiln Cottage, School Lane, Overton-On-Dee, for sale by private treaty.

Kiln Cottage is a surprisingly spacious 6 Bedroom detached village house of immense charm and character extending to over 3,000 sq. Ft. With parking and gardens situated in a convenient and popular location in the centre of Overton-On-Dee.

The property was constructed in circa 1860 and was converted by the current vendor to a high standard to provide the following accommodation, on the ground floor, a Reception Hall, Lounge, Dining Room, Study, Kitchen, Utility Room and Pantry together with 6 first floor Bedrooms (or 5 Bedrooms and a first floor Sitting Room), a Studio, En-suite Bathroom to the Master Bedroom and a further Family Bathroom. The property benefits from gas fired central heating, partially double glazed windows and is presented for sale with the fitted carpets included in the purchase price.

Outside, the property is complemented by an attached garage with first floor office space above providing potential for alteration/conversion into further living accommodation, if required (subject to Local Authority consent).

The gardens are a surprising feature of the property and are situated predominantly to one side and provide a lovely and surprisingly private outdoor entertaining area including a walled garden with central lawn bordered by flower beds, a mature eucalyptus tree and a further paved patio area. There are two brick storage sheds.

The sale of Kiln Cottage does, therefore, provide a very rare opportunity indeed for purchasers to acquire a substantial and characterful village property which truly requires an internal inspection to be fully appreciated.

Situation - Kiln Cottage is situated close to the centre of the popular village of Overton-on-Dee. Overton-on-Dee is a well known village having excellent local amenities to include a Primary School, Doctors Surgery, Village Shops incuding a Post Office, butchers & chemist, and Parish Church to name but a few. Whilst enjoying this popular location the village is still only 7 miles from Wrexham and 5 miles from Ellesmere both of which have a more comprehensive range of amenities of all kinds. The county towns of Chester (18 miles) and Shrewsbury (25 miles) are also within easy commuting distance.

Directions - From Ellesmere proceed on the A528 Overton Road to the village of Overton-on-Dee. On reaching Overton-on-Dee proceed over the crossroads into School Lane and the property will be located on the left hand side, after a short distance identified by a Halls For Sale board.
