Property Description

A leaded light panelled front door opens into a useful entrance lobby, ideal for coats and wellies. A Further glass panelled door opens into the entrance hallway, with original tessellated flooring with panelling to the walls which has been washed in Farrow and Ball paint to give a light and airy feel whilst not losing the original charm. There are plates racks at the top adding the final touch to this amazing feature. From the hallway turn right into the lounge, with feature brick fireplace, oak mantle over and inset with multi fuel burner, moulded coved ceiling, square bay window with old fashioned radiator, and engineered oak flooring. The office is on the left as you enter the hallway and has a double aspect with cupboard housing boiler. The hallway opens into a larger hall with tessellated flooring and stairs rising to the first floor, the washed wood panelling continues through this hall and up the stairs. There is a large and useful pantry cupboard with window under the stairs, the dining room with stripped wooden flooring has a marble hearth where a fireplace used to be (which I believe could be re-opened by the future owner), picture rail, and moulded coved ceiling and doors to a further inner hall and sun room. The sun room overlooks the garden and offers access, currently housing both a tumble dryer and freezer. The inner hall leads to the back door, parking and outbuildings as well as a downstairs shower room with separate shower cubicle, low flush WC, pedestal wash hand basin, and plumbing for washing machine.

The kitchen is to front aspect and has a range of oak wall and floor units quarry tiled flooring and 1 bowl Belfast sink with hospital style mixer taps, space for American fridge and multi fuel range (which can be purchased by separate negotiation). The stairs from the main hall lead to a large and bright landing with a large window overlooking the rear garden with minstrel gallery, located off the landing there are three double bedroom and a very large single, which is in need of cosmetic decoration. The family bathroom has been started with a new suite in white but also needs finishing. The main bedroom is to front aspect and has the large square bay overlooking the front garden, there is space for a range of wardrobes. The second bedroom is of similar size and overlooks the rear garden. Bedroom three, the guest room, is double aspect.

Gardens and Outbuildings

A large covered walkway is located outside the back door which provides handy drying space for those days when washing needs the smell of fresh air, yet the rain prevents line drying!, There is a space for logs and the side entrance to a very large garage and workshop which could take up to three cars in tandem. The rear of the garage would be ideal for furniture restoration, wood turning or any other creative hobby, there is both power and light. A greenhouse, and summerhouse are also included and a large shed in need of restoration, holds a swimming pool which would need to be re- instated. The gardens themselves are secluded by a high well maintained hedge and are mainly laid to lawn, there is a raised vegetable patch and archway to the secret garden which leads down to the river Onny a really magical place for children, and don't forget the chickens!!

Location

The property is located on the quiet edge of Craven arms town centre. Craven Arms is a small town in south Shropshire with a train station on the Heart of Wales line with access to the Welsh Marches railway line which links it north and south to the larger towns of Shrewsbury and Ludlow respectively. The town is enclosed to the north by the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and to the south is the fortified manor house of Stokesay Castle. Craven Arms is a market town for the surrounding rural area, with a number of shops, bank, a supermarket and many commercial/light industrial businesses. It is also a visitor destination; being nearby to a number of attractions and being central for visitors to the area of outstanding natural beauty, it quite rightly describes itself as the Gateway to the Marches . For families the location allows you to qualify for either schooling at Ludlow or Church Stretton.
