You'd be nuts if you didn't view Walnut Cottage!

If you are looking for a property with land, this detached dormer bungalow may very well fit the bill. Whether you want formal gardens (as is the case here) or whether you want land for animals, the choice is yours to make. Whatever your decision, you can rest assured that you will end up with a family home that benefits from a tranquil setting, that is screened from immediate neighbours and has the great advantage of backing onto and facing rolling Shropshire countryside - bliss!

It is approached off an unadopted country lane and you are therefore unlikely to be plagued by boy racers tearing past your front door. If the grounds are to be kept as formal gardens, you will need a reliable 'sit-on' lawnmower to maintain the current format. Alternatively, the odd horse/pony/sheep will also be able to munch their way through the grass.

Best of all though, this lovely property is far from being isolated; it is about 5 miles from Whitchurch and swift access to the A49 and A41 trunk roads provide onward travel by car to larger conurbations including Shrewsbury, Wolverhampton, Chester and Wrexham.

The property itself has generous room dimensions and a choice of both upstairs and downstairs bedrooms, the master bedroom having an en-suite shower room. There is a comfortable lounge/dining room, although it is likely that most people will spend their daytime in the spacious open plan kitchen/conservatory.

Outside, you can park a fleet of vehicles in the driveway, with plenty of space to keep them under cover in either the large garage or triple carport.

Also, if entertaining is important to you, then you are unlikely to be disappointed with the large paved sun terrace, complete with covered barbecue area. An internal inspection is recommended and what is immediately apparent is that you get an awful lot for your money.

Remember, 'seeing is believing' and with that in mind, book your viewing now, before someone else beats you to it!
