Property description

This pretty thatched cottage, is, as said, in need of renovation, you enter the property into the dining hall. With beamed ceilings and walls and large inglenook fireplace currently holding an old fashioned range cooker, with window to the front aspect and a further door which leads you into the kitchen. This has some lovely bespoke units, being a corner cupboard and unit housing the sink, there is a cooker point and window overlooking the front garden, which has recently been cleared. A door leads to a small utility area, with door leading to the rear garden, and further door to large downstairs bathroom, with panelled bath, bidet, wash hand basin and low flush WC. The kitchen with its quarry tiled floor, holds a door to a hidden staircase and there is a step down to the formal drawing room, a really lovely double aspect room with the original windows overlooking both the front and rear garden. There is another front door from the lounge indicating that at one time this was two cottages that stood side by side. The drawing room has a large inglenook, with original bread oven and one can imagine a roaring fire, whilst outside the wind howls, really romantic in its aspect, beamed ceiling and walls finish this wonderful room. There is a small study off the lounge and a window showing the underside of the thatch, as well as the large curved stone wall of the bread oven. The wonky and creaking stairs lead you to a large landing with beamed ceiling and walls and large enough to make an extra reception, both the bedrooms are doubles, the doors leading to the bedrooms are of restricted height and the next owner would definitely have to duck or grouse! The larger of the two bedrooms has windows to rear aspect and has far reaching views over the Shropshire hills and countryside, beamed ceilings low in places and beamed walls, the other bedroom also a double has a very low door into it and has a window to front aspect.


In the process of being cleared this garden with far reaching views is a blank canvas for the next owner and when finished would only serve to enhance the cottage, there is space to create a driveway and erect a double garage, and lose non of the garden size.
