Full description

An appealing mature detached cottage of character requiring modernisation and refurbishment with attractive and generous size gardens in a commanding position towards the fringe of a popular village.

Directions - From Shrewsbury proceed north along the A5 heading along the Nesscliffe bypass to the Shotatton crossroads. Turn right for Ryton XI Towns and once in the village proceed up the bank past the shop. Along Brown Hill to eventually reaching a mini roundabout. At this point go completely around and go back towards the centre of the village and after about 50 yards on the first bend, turn left in front of a bungalow along a grassed driveway, which leads up to the property.

Situation - Located towards the outskirts of this popular village, whilst being slightly tucked away in a commanding position. The village provides a number of useful amenities including a primary school, store/post office, veterinary surgery and pub. The neighbouring village of Baschurch also provides a good selection of basic amenities including the popular Corbett School. Surrounding the village is delightful open countryside with endless walks along country lanes. Commuters will note that Shrewsbury is readily accessible via the A5 south, as is Oswestry to the north. There are further road links through to Telford and Wrexham.

Description - This charming part sandstone detached cottage offers a style of accommodation rarely found in todays market. There are some lovely traditional features including sandstone fireplaces to the two reception rooms, a number of exposed beams, whilst there are either shower or bathroom facilities to each floor. The accommodation has a typical cottage atmosphere and requires modernisation and refurbishment whilst there could be an excellent opportunity to possibly extend. Subject to planning consent.
