Overview - West View is a well presented 3 bedroom detached house situated on a private, no-through road and found just off popular Sandford Avenue in the beautiful market town of Church Stretton located less than 0.75 miles from the vibrant town centre and railway station.

Lovingly renovated and maintained within recent years by the current vendors the property presents sizeable accommodation to include, 3 bedrooms and 3 reception rooms. One of those reception rooms was formally the garage, however a well constructed conversion in 2014 has seen the addition of a multi-purpose office/hobby room at the front and a useful utility area at the rear. Further renovations by the owners consist of the opening up of the kitchen diner creating a wonderful light and airy open-plan family room, the delightful add-on in the shape of the rear conservatory overlooking the garden and the complete renewal of the family bathroom. Externally this 1960's built property has private front and rear gardens, off road parking and a highly useful lean-to storage building which spans along the one side of the house and is 1.4m wide x 3.6m long.

Set in a peaceful and elevated position, West View offers breathtaking west facing frontward views towards the Long Mynd (hence the name) and overall owing to its well proportioned accommodation and convenient location to not only the town, but the A49 road network, is open to a range of new home owners from younger buyers seeking to upsize and start a family perhaps, to downsizing purchasers looking to move closer towards the town centre facilities. Either way you can be sure any new occupiers would have acquired a truly splendid property in good order which fully caters for modern day living and is very efficient and low cost to run owing to the double glazing, newly installed condensing boiler in 2014 and cavity wall and extra loft insulation on top of what was already present. West View is simply ready for the new owners to move their belongings straight in, put their feet up and start calling this wonderful property - home.

The Property - Approached over the private road, the parking area leads to the light and airy glazed and timber entrance porch. From here a partly glazed door opens into the hallway which has carpeted stairs rising up to the first floor accommodation, feature wooden parquet flooring and separate doors leading left into the living room and frontwards into the rear kitchen diner. Of good proportion, the living room has a large window to the front providing distant views over the garden hedge towards The Long Mynd and allows plenty of natural light to flood the room. There is ample space for a three-piece-suite and a feature fireplace with insert remote controlled mains gas fired stove on top of a polished slate hearth, while double doors to the left of the fireplace, lead into the rear kitchen diner. Found in what used to be two separate rooms, the vendors knocked through the dividing wall to create a sizeable open-plan kitchen diner which without doubt is now the signature room of the house. Renewed in 2014 the kitchen was installed with matching wall and base cupboards with fitted solid wooden worktops over and an insert ceramic sink. Integrated appliances include an electric oven and gas four ring hob with extractor hood unit above, while there is also space for a fridge and freezer and set of dining table and chairs. This splendid kitchen is completed with part tiled walls, under wall unit lighting, scratch resistant flooring, a window providing a rear outlook over the garden and a door opening into a useful understair storage cupboard. Separate doors from the kitchen diner lead into the rear conservatory and also right into the utility area. Built on in 2014, the conservatory is a great addition to the property and enjoys pleasant views over the rear garden. French doors from the conservatory open directly out to the garden. Accessed from the kitchen, the utility room is installed with matching wall and base cupboards with fitted worktops over and an insert stainless steel sink and drainer. There is a wall mounted condensing boiler, which was installed in 2014, space and plumbing for a washing machine and dishwasher, a window providing a rear aspect and a stable door leading out to the back garden. Further doors open into the downstairs w.c and a multi-functional room which poses as an ideal home office or hobby room and has in the past also accommodated a bed. A window provides a distant frontward aspect towards The Long Mynd.

On the first floor a landing area has a window to the side, an airing cupboard off housing the water cylinder and access to a useful loft storage space. Separate doors lead into family bathroom and three bedrooms. The family bathroom was newly installed in 2014 and has an attractive white suite to include a 'Savoy' wash basin on top of a vanity unit, w.c and a roll top bath with shower over and a glazed screen. The bathroom suite is finished with a heated chrome towel radiator, part tiled walls and has a window to the rear. Accessed back off the landing area, bedroom two is found at the rear of the house and has space for a double bed and additional furnishings. A window provides a rear aspect over the garden, while there is also a door opening into a small storage cupbaord. Bedrooms one and three are found at the front of the house and share similar breathtaking distant views over the rooftops of Church Stretton and towards The Long Mynd and surrounding countryside. Bedroom one has plenty of space for a double bed and extra furnishings, while bedroom three offers space for a single bed and features a built-in wardrobe.

Outside - Externally, the property has off road parking and a front largely laid to lawn private garden with hedged borders. To the left side of the house is a really useful lean-to storage building which spans alongside the house and is 1.4m wide x 3.6m long, while to the right of the house a pathway leads around to the rear garden. Worthy of particular note this private rear garden has received a lot of attention in recent years from the vendors and has sections of lawn being interspersed with mature specimen trees and complemented by extensive well stocked floral and herbaceous borders. From the back of the property steps rise to a brick paved path which divides the lawn and leads to the back of the garden where a summerhouse is found on top of a raised decking tucked away in what is a real sun trap. From here beautiful views to the side of the property are on offer and the seating area poses as peaceful getaway from the rest of the house. A perfect place relax on against a fantastic scenic backdrop.

The Location - Set against the scenic backdrop of the Shropshire Hills, Church Stretton has a population of around 3500 and has an excellent array of facilities such as doctors surgery, dental practice and a variety of independent shops. Also known as 'Little Switzerland', Church Stretton has direct access to over 20 square miles of National Trust land making it a haven for lovers of the outdoors.
