Be prepared to be amazed.... Be prepared to be flabbergasted....

True to our word, this is probably one of the best presented cottages that we have been instructed to sell for a long while and to say that the current owners are 'house-proud' is probably an understatement!

Since owning the property they have stripped it right back (including a new roof) and renovated it from top to bottom. Not only that, they have extended it at the rear to provide a splendid third reception room in the form of an open-plan family room (complete with contemporary wood burner) that links into the (refitted) luxury kitchen. The overall result - AMAZING!! From here, double bi-fold patio doors open directly onto the good-sized colourful landscaped rear garden and once opened to their full extent, create a jaw dropping picture postcard scene.

However, do not for one moment think that this is the only area that has received 'special attention'. Take the dining room for example and you are likely to gasp at the highly polished cherry wood floor or the comfortable sitting room with its wide fireplace and huge (for the size of the room) log burning stove. Even the light and airy entrance hall with its patterned tiled floor creates a great first impression.

The utility room, downstairs cloakroom/WC and side hall are ideally placed for those coming in from the garden and all manner of shoes and muddy wellington boots can be left here before entering the rest of the house. Upstairs, all 3 bedrooms are good sizes and if you thought the kitchen was special, then you are just as likely to fall in love with the refitted bathroom.

Outside, the photographs of the front and rear gardens featured in our brochure and on our website show just how it really is - BEAUTIFUL! There is off-road parking for 2 cars on the driveway, in addition to the single garage.

The cottage faces open countryside and is well placed within walking distance of the village itself, which is served by its own pub, church, nursery and primary school, village hall, tennis courts and bowling club. Bus services provide travel to Shrewsbury and Whitchurch. There is a real sense of belonging to a community when living here, although there are more comprehensive facilities in nearby Whitchurch and Wem.

In summary, this is a very special family home and one that is crying out to be viewed!!
