Prees Green, Nr Whitchurch

Guide price

Bedrooms: 5

Remember the TV series "The Darling Buds of May"? Well, this country house with its range of outbuildings (including hen house with strutting cockerels) could have been lifted straight from the set!

Mind you, looks can be deceptive and don't for one-minute think that it is located down a leafy country lane; it actually faces the A49 (which is a main A road) connecting Whitchurch to Shrewsbury and is particularly well placed for those requiring swift road links into Cheshire, Shropshire, West Midlands and North Wales.

The house is about 1.5 miles from the village of Prees which is served by shops, post office, doctor, hairdresser, village hall, railway station and a primary school. There is a club house within the recreational ground, which also incorporates a bowling club, along with cricket and football fields.

This substantially extended property has delightful rural views from most windows and it occupies a large plot, extending to around 3.5 acres, allowing you to do all manner of things like grow vegetables, keep chickens, horses - yes, this really could be 'The good Life' (another TV series).

The current owners (who run their own business from home) have thoroughly enjoyed their time here and the fact that they have stayed for almost 30 years, speaks volumes. The original cottage from over a hundred years ago has been substantially extended and the spacious accommodation could be adapted to suit individual needs, including provision for a DOWNSTAIRS ANNEXE as the studio (which could be used as a 6th bedroom) has an en-suite shower room and kitchen sink.

Most windows have recently been replaced with uPVC double glazed units, although there is scope for further modernisation and improvement to realise its full potential.
