If you feel the need to escape the 'rat race' then this could be the ideal opportunity!

Step into this spacious detached country cottage and feel the stress levels miraculously disappear. It is difficult to imagine who would not want to live here, although if you crave nearby pubs, clubs, shops and bars, stop reading immediately and look elsewhere!!!

However, do not for one moment feel that this is an isolated location - far from it; there are neighbours nearby, but once you are in the grounds, you feel as though you are a million miles away from the rest of the world - bliss.

The lovely gardens and fields that come with this property are a joy to behold, with far reaching rural views towards Hawkstone Follies and golf course in the distance. If you have horses, donkeys or ponies, there are stables too as this large plot extends to approximately 4.1 acres in total.

The village of Prees is well 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. It is conveniently placed for travel by car into nearby Whitchurch, Wem, Market Drayton and Shrewsbury.

The cottage has been extensively modernised and extended, whilst retaining charm and character including a wealth of exposed beams. The beautiful oak garden room really does take you into the garden with its bi-folding doors that open onto the grounds and enjoy those gorgeous views.

The kitchen/breakfast room was refitted in 2018 and is to die for! Matching units feature in the utility room and from here there is access to the fifth bedroom with en-suite shower room and could easily adapt into a separate annexe for a dependent relative. There are four further double bedrooms upstairs, three of which have access to en-suite facilities.

You may have heard this cliche before, but we genuinely feel that properties of this calibre rarely come onto the market and with that in mind, an inspection is most strongly recommended.
