  • Bedrooms: 3
A beautiful example of a quintessential English cottage located close to the historic stone bridge in the centre of the town. Three bedrooms, two receptions along with a kitchen, utility/boot room and bathroom and additional attic/4th bedroom. Grade II listed with origins believed to date back to 1619 with many fine original features including oak floorboards, beams, stunning fireplace, flagstone floors and a beautiful garden.

Introduction

This lovely cottage has been lovingly restored and maintained over the years and many of its original features remain visible including the stone fireplace, flagstone & tiled floors, beams, oak floorboards and stairs and was formally a village shop until the early 20th century. The property has a sitting room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, utility/boot room, two bedrooms and bathroom on the first floor and a third bedroom on the top floor along with another attic room which could be an occasional 4th bedroom, study or work room. Externally there is the prettiest garden with three sitting areas, well stocked borders and vegetable garden. This would make a lovely family home or retirement idyll and Clun was noted by CPRE as one of the most tranquil in England and sits in the heart of Shropshire's AONB.

Property description

As you enter the property through the modern oak front door and step on to the original Victorian mosaic tiled floor the sitting room is to the left and the dining room to the right. These rooms are now only separated by a low wall and oak beams on either side but give the rooms definition and purpose. The sitting room has a wonderful stone and oak surround with wood burner, exposed stone walls, flagstone floors and a really deep window showing the extent of the thickness of the walls. To the right is a similar sized dining room again continuing the flagstone flooring, beamed ceiling and exposed stone walls. A particular feature of this room is the old fireplace and door leading to the oak staircase. Stepping through the original back door you enter the kitchen/breakfast room with a range of units and work top with inset Belfast sink , numerous eclectic shelves and racks and space for a small bistro style table. Tucked away is the oil boiler supplying the hot water and heating. Through the door on the right is the utility/boot room with plumbing for washing machine as well as space for freezer and dishwasher and a door leads out in to the garden.

Taking the aforementioned turned oak staircase to the first floor on the right is the large main bedroom with built in wardrobes, feature fireplace, oak floor and beamed ceiling. Also on this floor is the third bedroom which is currently used as a study and the well appointed bathroom with the particular feature of the roll top bath. Continuing up the next flight of stairs you enter the attic bedroom two with some loss of head height but with a window and a Velux this works very well. Then there is the second attic room which is currently used as a storage room/library but would work just as well as an occasional fourth bedroom.

Outside

The garden has been designed to take full advantage of the various locations of the sun and there are three seating areas with gravelled patios and pathways meandering around the incredibly well stocked flower beds and borders with an array of cottage style planting as well as conveniently planted vegetable areas. There is a timber garden shed, wood store and mature holly tree. There is a stone wall to the front with gate leading out on to the pavement and subject to listed building consent this could be opened up in to a parking area.

Location

Tranquil, pretty community overlooked by spectacular castle ruins.

Most people think of Clun as a village, but it has the distinction of being granted a very early town charter in the 14th century. It was also mentioned in the Domesday Book and there is archaeological evidence of habitation back as far as 5000 years ago with Neolithic and Bronze Age tools on display in the town's museum.

Overlooking the town is the ruined Borderland castle, perched high on two ice age mounds with the River Clun running past it, makes a scenic picnic spot. Clun is located in the Shropshire's Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and draws many visitors to the town to enjoy its hospitality, wonderful walking and scenery

The town has some local shops and amenities and a primary school but more extensive shopping is available in Knighton, Bishops Castle, Craven Arms and Ludlow and train stations on the Heart of Wales train line which links the west coast of Wales, mid Wales and English mainlines is located at Knighton, Bucknell, Hopton Heath and Craven Arms.
