The Property - Built to a high specification by respected local developer Morris Graham Ltd, Copall Paddock is a private estate located just a short walk from the centre of the beautiful town of Bishops Castle. Number 10 has had just the one owner, who bought the property off plan back in 1994. At the time they paid extra to have the property built larger than the original specification and also had other additional extras such as an extended garage and the brick built fireplace in the living room. Over the years the owners, who leave this property with a heavy heart, have spared no expense in keeping it beautifully maintained. The property has the benefit of oil fired central heating, with the combination boiler being just 3 years old. The kitchen is fitted with a French oak 'Mobalpa' kitchen, while the bathroom is finished to a high standard, oak flooring runs throughout much of downstairs, so the quality is there to see.

Being a private estate, Copall Paddock has its own management committee. Registered as a limited company, Copall Paddocks Ltd, is responsible for the general maintenance of the estate, which includes the drainage, the street lighting and the roads and pavements (which were re-laid in August 2015). The owner of each property on the estate must pay an annual contribution of £100, which is pooled together and used to fund any work which may be required. There is an annual general meeting which all of the residents are invited to, although it is not compulsory to attend if you do not wish.

Number 10 sits in a quiet position on the left hand side as you enter Copall Paddock. The estate itself is made of similarly attractive properties, which all appear to be well looked after, showing there is a real pride of ownership from all of the residents. The road is wide and each property has it's own driveway and expansive front garden, the whole scene feels reminiscent of the kind of idyllic residential setting you see in wholesome family films.

Approached over a tarmacadam driveway which provides ample off road parking, a lawned fore-garden has a pathway which leads to the bespoke, glazed, oak entrance door. The hallway has oak flooring inviting you into the home, with the dining room found on your right and the living room on your left. For the purposes of this tour we will start in the living room. An excellent size, the undeniable key feature of the living is the prominent brick built fireplace housing the multi fuel stove. This gives such a homely sense of character and the roaring fire will be a welcome sight on a cold winters evening. On sunnier days however, you may find yourself spending more time the other side of the French doors, in the highly impressive conservatory. Running the width of the building, and having the benefit of halogen heaters if it isn't Summer, the conservatory is a super addition to this home. Quarry tiled flooring is found underfoot and roof vents are found above, while French doors open out to the lovely, private, rear garden. From the conservatory you can also access the rear hallway which has a useful under-stairs storage cupboard, and takes you into the well fitted kitchen. Offering a touch of real quality the kitchen is sure to impress, fitted by David Hartill, there is a granite style work surface sitting atop the previously mentioned French oak, soft close, units. There is also an array of modern integrated appliances to include, a dishwasher, fridge freezer, electric double oven and halogen hob. Further appliances can be found in the utility room which has plumbing for a washing machine and gives access to the roof space above. Off the utility there is a cloakroom complete with WC and wash basin. Located to the rear of the property is a real bonus for anyone who may work from home, and that is the office/study. Giving, what feels like a degree of separation from the main living accommodation, the study is an ideal place find some privacy so you can concentrate on work or studies. A door from the study opens into the garage, which in-turn, has an electric garage door, a must if the weather takes a turn for the worse. The garage is larger than average and houses the oil fired central heating boiler. It also has good storage space space in the roof and a door to rear garden.

On the first floor you will find three good sized bedrooms, two doubles and a generous single. All three are accessed from the landing, as is the airing cupboard and bathroom. The two principle bedrooms are set at the front of the house and both enjoy a nice outlook to the street and neighbouring properties, both also have fitted wardrobes, while the master also has a built-in cupboard above the stairs. The third bedroom sits to the rear and also has a fitted wardrobe, while enjoying a pleasant view over the rear garden. Concluding the internal accommodation is the bathroom, smartly appointed with a matching suite comprising a 'P' shaped bath with an electric shower over, and a WC and wash basin both inset into a vanity unit with a wall mounted mirror above. The bathroom also has an obscured window for privacy and a chrome heated towel rail.

Outside, the property is equally as well maintained. The previously mentioned fore-garden has a neatly laid lawn and various well manicured trees and shrubs. Wrought iron railings provide the boundary to the neighbouring property and a wooden gate gives access to the secure and private rear garden, where a little surprise awaits you! Ever fancied having your very own Railway? Well this is your chance. A fully fledged miniature train line lays inset into the lawn, of course we know this may not be for everyone so the vendors will lift the tracks to leave a stoned pathway, or make good the lawn should that be your wish.....good luck trying to convince the kids that's the best option though! Aside from the train line, the garden has other lovely and useful features such as the paved patio, the well planted rockery and the two timber garden sheds.

All in all, number 10 is smashing home, well built, inviting, homely and located in a sought after setting in a lovely town. Spacious enough to house a growing family, but not so large that it would overwhelm a couple on their own, there should be no shortage of takers for such a lovely property so be sure to book your viewing sooner rather than later.
