The Property - April Cottage is what Doctor Who fans might call a 'Tardis', from the outside it looks like a lovely detached family home...which it is, however it is not until you get inside that you realise just how large the room sizes actually are. Offering over 1600 square feet of accommodation April Cottage should have more than enough space for you and your family to spread out in. Approached over a brick paved driveway you will find an entrance door inviting you into the hallway. The Oak effect laminate flooring is ideal for an area which attracts heavy footfall, especially living in the country. The hallway is also home to a convenient cloakroom with a wc and wash basin, a separate utility room keeps some of the household chores out of sight and a large under-stairs storage cupboard houses the 'Worcester' LPG gas fired central heating boiler. Off the hallway you will find the hub of the home, the kitchen diner. Beautifully appointed with a Farmhouse style kitchen, this where we imagine you and your family spending much of your time, when you'r not in the huge living room that is. Situated to the rear of the property the living room is a terrific space for the family. The focal point of the room is the granite effect fireplace which has a decorative wooden surround and electric fire. French doors open out to the pretty rear garden allowing easy access for the children to play, the boundaries are well fenced and the gated side access ensures it is safe and secure. Sitting between the kitchen and the living room you will find, what we are formally calling, the dining room, however it is utilised as more of a play/family room by the current owners. However you choose to use it you will find the accommodation flows exceptionally well in April Cottage.

On the first floor you will find four really good size bedrooms all accessed from the landing, which also gives access to the useful loft space. The master bedroom sits at the front of the property and has the benefit of a large built in wardrobe and well appointed en-suite facilities. To the rear there are two further double rooms both enjoying a pleasant outlook and both having a built-in double wardrobe. The fourth bedroom is still a double in size, although you will have to make do with just a single built in wardrobe in this one. Last but not least, completing our tour of the accommodation is the family bathroom. As you enter a range of fitted shelves to your right provide good storage space, moving forward the bathroom opens out and you will see a contemporary fitted white suite comprising a panelled bath with a mains shower over, a wc and a wash basin, the bathroom has a stylish tiled finish and an obscured double glazed window.

Outside, as previously mentioned, there is a brick paved parking area to the front which leads to a gate taking you along the side of the property to the rear garden. The majority of the the outside space sits to the rear and is made up of a paved patio area adjoining a level lawn. The garden is private and has nicely planted borders, a timber shed and an outside tap.

The Village - The small village of Halfway House in Shropshire is literally halfway between Shrewsbury and Welshpool. Thats approximately 9 miles away from Shrewsbury and approximately 9 miles away from Welshpool. Both of which have vast array of shops, tourist attractions and amenities. Halfway House, although small, does have a popular public House, called the Halfway House, a caf/diner, a car sales garage, a Methodist church and a village shop with post office. 2 miles away is the village of Westbury which has a Post Office, Primary school, Public House and also a medical centre. Rowton Leisure Centre is also very close so you wont be too far away from essential amenities. 5 miles down the road is Ford, where there is a lovely little Farm shop offering locally grown produce as well as a lovely caf/tearoom and also a larger American style restaurant called the Smoke Stop.

Shrewsbury, the birth place of Charles Darwin, is a vibrant and lively town with a very cosmopolitan yet traditional atmosphere. The towns 660 listed buildings are complimented by a host of trendy and sophisticated bars and restaurants, the medieval streets do however still retain many classic public houses and dining establishments. Built on the River Severn the town hosts the annual Shrewsbury Flower Show which is one of the largest and oldest horticultural shows in the country attracting over 100,000 visitors. Home to 4 shopping centres, 2 significant retail parks and countless independent retailers the town is an excellent place to enjoy some retail therapy. If you prefer to spend your time soaking up a little more culture the Theatre Severn provides many varied productions and entertainment, or perhaps a visit to the Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery or Shrewsbury Castle would be more fitting. Other places of note are The Quarry a 29 acre riverside park, the largely unchanged Medieval Market place, Shrewsbury Abbey, the 9 bridges crossing the river Severn most notably the English and Welsh bridges, the Lord Hills Column the largest free-standing Doric column in the world and the Shropshire Agricultural Showground which hosts one of the countys most important agricultural shows. The town has many sporting and recreational facilities including Shrewsbury Town Football Club, who play their home games at the purpose built New Meadow stadium, Shrewsbury Rugby Club, Shrewsbury Rowing Club and Shrewsbury Motorcross Club to name but a few.
