There's something fishy going on here! Yes, you are likely to fall for this property hook, line and sinker. In fact, you could say it is a real catch!

Waterfront properties rarely come onto the market, so there is likely to be considerable interest in this particular cottage with sweeping lawns that lead straight down to the banks of the River Dee. From here, look left and you see the attractive sandstone road bridge and looking right the river meanders through open countryside and if you are lucky, you will hear or see a leaping salmon.

It all sounds too good to be true, especially when a highly regarded country inn (The Cross Foxes) is within a stone's throw, although don't worry; you can't see it from the property or garden as it is screened by mature trees. Just up the road, also in Erbistock, is The Boat Inn, famous for its picturesque location and charming character.

The cottage itself is located on a sloping site, masked by mature trees and having lots of steps that take you to the upper and lower levels and thus keeping you fit at the same time! Upon entering the imposing iron gates, there is a self-contained detached lodge house on the left hand side with its own independent heating system, kitchen, lounge, shower room and mezzanine bedroom area. From here, the driveway passes a double garage and leads down to the cottage with gravel sun terrace and views over the river.

It really is an idyllic setting. An internal inspection is recommended, the spacious sitting room with its beamed ceiling and full height open stone fireplace immediately creating a favorable impression. The refitted kitchen has granite worktops, a range of fitted appliances and leads into the dining area. A downstairs cloakroom/WC is located off the utility room and upstairs, all 3 bedrooms are 'doubles' and take full advantage of the riverside views. The modern bathroom has a white suite including a 'P' shaped bath and separate shower cubicle.

Outside, in addition to the double garage, there is parking for numerous vehicles in the courtyard and from here, steps lead down to the lower lawns, complete with timber house/man cave (currently kitted out with beer fridge) and stunning views along the river bank.

Maes Yr Haul is in a lovely situation on the banks of the River Dee. The County Town of Wrexham, The Cathedral City of Chester and the Historic Market Town of Shrewsbury are within commuting distance and provide access to the motorway network.

The nearby village of Overton-on-Dee has a garage, a store, a pharmacy and a doctor’s surgery as well as St Mary the Virgin Church and its ancient Yew trees. Bangor-on-Dee racecourse is only 3.2 miles away.
