Overview - Riverside is a well maintained, detached bungalow located on the very edge of the popular village of Bucknell, situated amidst the scenic Shropshire countryside close to the English/Welsh border within the picturesque Teme Valley.

Built in 1985/6 and occupied by 1 family, Riverside is a spacious property made up of a breakfast kitchen with utility off, 3 bedrooms, 2 reception rooms, a bathroom and a W.C. In addition, the dwelling presents plenty of storage with all 3 bedrooms benefiting built-in wardrobes, there is also a hall and front and rear porchways. Outside, Riverside is accessed over a private bridge, which gives a sense that you are entering your own private island and has a sweeping tarmacadam driveway, which provides plenty of off road parking and leads to a detached double garage to the side of the property. In total the bungalow sits in approximately 0.6 acres of beautifully nurtured gardens, adjoins the picturesque Shropshire countryside and is a approached up a quiet, 'No Through Way' lane.

Occupying a peaceful edge of village position, Riverside is worlds apart from the hustle and bustle of city living, yet is conveniently situated less than 0.5 of a mile from the village amenities including a shop, primary school, 2 pub's, butchers, garage and train station. Just outside Bucknell in the nearby hamlet of Bedstone is the highly-regarded, private school of Bedstone College. Rural, but by no means isolated Bucknell is centrally located just 5 miles from the border town of Knighton, 10 miles from the market town of Craven Arms and 4 miles from the much larger village of Leintwardine. Slightly further afield lies historic Ludlow Town, which is 12 miles to the east.

If you have been dreaming of an individual property, offering a quiet way of life, amidst a close knit village community, set in a private position surrounded by large gardens for you to spend endless hours relaxing in, then dream no more! The phrase 'must view' is grossly overused in estate agency jargon, however in this particular instance it could not be more accurate!

The Property - A entrance porch gives way to a w.c to the right and a hallway in front. From the hall, separate doors lead left into the good-sized dining room and adjoining living room, frontwards into the breakfast kitchen, utility room and rear porch way, while off to the right the hall leads to the 3 sizeable bedrooms and family bathroom. The living room has ample space for a three-piece-suite and additional furnishings and has a feature fireplace and patio doors opening outside to the garden. The breakfast kitchen has space for a set of table and chairs and is fitted with a matching range of wall and base units with worktops over, an inset sink and has space for a free-standing fridge/freezer and cooker. Off the breakfast kitchen, the utility houses the boiler and has a fitted base unit with inset sink and there is also space and plumbing for a washing machine. Between the kitchen and utility a door opens into the rear porch, which provides access outside into the rear garden. Continuing back along the hall, the family bathroom is installed with a matching suite of w.c, wash hand basin, a panelled bath and a corner shower unit. At the end of the hallway, separate doors open into the 3 sizeable bedrooms, which all benefit from built-in wardrobes.

Outside - The property is approached over a private bridge, through wooden entrance gates and across a tarmacadam driveway, which provides of road parking for several vehicles and leads to the detached double garage, which is installed with power and lighting. Overall, the largely laid to lawn, beautifully kept gardens stretch to approximately 0.6 acres and are mainly split into 3 sections divided by either the drive or a hedgeway. The gardens have well-defined hedged and fenced borders and are stocked throughout with an array of mature shrubs, flowed beds and trees. There is a raised paved patio seating area adjoining the back of the house, which poses as a private spot to relax/entertain on, whilst having the nearby Redlake River gently flowing by as passive background noise. The gardens are a haven for all horticultural enthusiasts to get their green fingers stuck into.

The Location - The picturesque village of Bucknell nestles in the beautiful Teme Valley in the unspoilt countryside of South Shropshire bordering the counties of Herefordshire and Powys.
