They don't make land any more! Hence, why you need to view Island House because that has its own paddock (with pools) and sits on a plot extending to just over 5.4 acres.

Commanding far reaching views over Malpas at the rear (you can clearly see the Medieval church tower) and having a range of useful outbuildings, country living doesn't get much better than this.

The joy of having the land is the knowledge that (within reason) you can do what you want with it. For example, over the years, the existing owners have farmed fish from the ponds, cultivated worms on a commercial scale, kept livestock and even just used it for walking their dogs.

The parish of Wigland is close to the Shropshire/Welsh borders and is therefore well placed for travel to larger centres including nearby Whitchurch and Malpas, with Chester, Wrexham and Shrewsbury within commuting distance. The house is by no means isolated and there are neighbouring properties within a short distance.

The original house was extended in the 1980's and the additional accommodation has ensured that there is genuine spacious and adaptable family sized accommodation. There are 2 separate driveways, the house and formal gardens are screened from the road by a tall and meticulously tended conifer hedge. One thing is for certain....parking is not an issue here. From boats to caravans, cars to lorries, trailers to vans, you name it, you can accommodate the lot and with room to spare.

There is an abundance of wildlife and on the down-side, keeping the bird feeders well stocked will cost a small fortune! The large sheltered clay lined pond no longer has fish in it, but the bullrushes continue to flourish and undoubtedly this is a tranquil spot to just sit and read a book during the summer months or even just to chill out from the hustle and bustle of every day life.

Island House has so much to offer in terms of accommodation and location that we feel you will not be disappointed. Come and see it for yourelves!
