The property provides ample living space with three double bedrooms upstairs and a large family bathroom. The most recent addition to the property is a spacious porch area and conservatory which provides a bright and airy space. The property also benefits from a generous gravelled car parking area on the western side. The garden comprises a mature landscaped lawn area, a wide range of rose beds, mature trees and shrubs and at the bottom of the garden you will find a greenhouse.

Encircling The Oaklands is 5 acres of pasture land which is contained within mature hedgerow boundaries. The property benefits from an additional range of agricultural buildings and yard area including a former dairy building and a steel-framed Dutch barn. The buildings benefit from a separate access off the council maintained highway.

LOCATION With unspoilt views towards the Wrekin and with panoramic views over the neighbouring countryside, this traditional dwelling is situated in the perfect place. With its rural surroundings and the proximity to local amenities and services coupled with scenic walks to be enjoyed just a stones throw from your front door.

The Oaklands sits 0.9 miles east of the quaint village of Withington, with a strong community the village has lots to offer. There is a family run pub sitting close to the village green, a parish hall which regularly hosts film nights and many clubs and societies covering all interests such as the local Women's Institute, a walking group and Withington golf society.

Access to the A5/M54 is only 5 miles from The Oaklands making its location very accessible to the wider road network. 

LOCAL AMENITIES The property sits just over one mile from the peaceful village of Rodington which benefits from a local pub and a post office and just over 2 miles from the larger village of Upton Magna which hosts a primary school, a popular pub and a well-supported village hall.

Named one of England's finest medieval towns and the birth place of Charles Darwin, Shrewsbury lies approximately 9 miles from The Oaklands and is home to a castle, theatre, numerous museums, an abundance of eateries, and a vibrant nightlife. Renowned to be one of England's most splendid heritage towns, there is an ample number of activities to do outdoors including a wander through the Quarry Park or along the River Severn. There is also a huge variety of independent and high street shops providing something for everyone. The Oaklands sits in a prime position as it retains the rural and countryside location yet it is within good proximity to the larger towns and road networks.

There are a network of bridleways and country lanes adjacent to the property which provide good hacking for the equestrian purchaser.
