Dating to 1672, this desirable detached cottage has been Listed in consideration of its beautiful village setting near St Mary's Church and other buildings of architectural importance. Rough cast over sandstone, it is thought the building was a coach house and stabling for a former Inn (The Three Horseshoes C15th), reputedly the oldest in Shropshire. The village offers convenience stores, post office, public houses, primary school and local sports activities to include cricket and tennis clubs. Of particular note is the Severn Country Park set near-by which backs onto the Severn Valley Railway (with station) and the River Severn offering many walks and cycling routes that lead from this location.
The cottage stands back from the road and has a large garden which enjoys glimpses of far reaching views across the Severn Valley. The buildings to the side of the driveway have recently obtained planning consent for a self contained one bedroom annexe which could be utilised by a dependant relative or as a lucrative holiday let. The cottage itself offers scope for further improvement and presently comprises: Hall, lounge with beams and inglenook fireplace, leading into the dining room with a fully glazed garden room. The rear hall has stairs to the first floor and leads into the breakfast kitchen incorporating a range of fitted units and a two oven oil fired AGA. Beyond the boot room gives access to the utility area, downstairs WC and garage beyond. From the landing there are three generous bedrooms (one including a shower cubicle) and the house bathroom.
Outside - From the driveway there is access around both sides of the property leading to a mature garden which enjoys a south-westerly aspect.

From the garden you can hear the Severn Valley Steam Railway Train blowing it's whistle at the nearby Country Park stop.
