Description - Halls are delighted with instructions to offer Yew Tree Cottage, Greenhill Bank, near Ellesmere, for sale by private treaty.

Yew Tree Cottage is a superbly situated equestrian property in a totally private rural setting, comprising a period 3 bedroom detached family house with good sized surrounding gardens, outbuildings, stabling and paddocks, extending, in all, to approximately 4.6 acres, or thereabouts.

The property has the benefit of an oil fired central heating system, double glazing and is presented for sale the fitted carpets included in the purchase price.

The gardens are an attractive feature of the property and comprise mature shaped lawns to three sides of the house with a paved patio area and further 'sitting area' in the trees, making a lovely setting for outside dining/entertaining etc. Externally the property is well equipped with a most useful domestic outbuilding, currently used as a workshop and studio, but with immense potential for a variety of alternative usages, such as an annexe, consulting rooms, gallery, studio etc (subject to the necessary local authority consent), together with a most useful stable block with three loose boxes and a tack room.

The property is complimented further by the pasture paddocks which are retained in four enclosures at present, all down to grass, ideal of the grazing of all kinds of livestock, particularly horses. The property extends, in all, to approximately 4.6 acres, or thereabouts.

Situation - Yew Tree Cottage is situated at the end of a private country lane, just outside the popular rural hamlet of Greenhill Bank, which is close to the popular village of Dudleston Heath. Dudleston Heath has excellent local amenities for a village of its size, but is only 2.5 miles north of the popular North Shropshire Lakeland town of Ellesmere, which has an excellent range of local shopping, recreational and educational facilities. There is a noted local primary school approx 0.25 of a mile from the property and the larger centres of Oswestry (8 miles) and the county town of Shrewsbury (19 miles) are, also, easily accessible by car, both of which, have a comprehensive range of amenities of all kinds.

Just before the village of Dudleston Heath turn left down Chapel Lane signposted "Greenhill Bank and Criftins C E School". Continue to the T-junction, turn right and the lane, which is unmmrked, to Yew Tree Cottage, will be found on the right hand side. Continue to the very end of this lane and you will arrive at Yew Tree Cottage, identified by a Halls 'For Sale' board.
