Sellers Insight - The house itself is spacious and welcoming, and is perfect for everyday family life and entertaining alike. "With such a generous kitchen and living room, both connecting directly to the Indian stone patios and garden, there is always plenty of room to socialise here," say the owners. "We can enjoy chatting around the kitchen island, or snuggling up by the log burner in the inglenook fireplace in the living room."
Outside, the property has just as much to offer, the grounds serving as an extension of the indoor living accommodation during the warmer months of the year. "We have a fantastic patio area outside the kitchen," say the owners, "where we have shared many barbecues with family and friends, and have created a courtyard-style area connected to the living room via bi-fold doors. We bought half a paddock, at the end of which there is another belonging to Helshaw Grange, so we can see the most magnificent horses at the bottom of the garden, while views of the fields beyond stretch out for miles."
The property is ideally situated in the midst of natural beauty while being within easy reach of various amenities and social opportunities. "There is a range of excellent pubs and restaurants in the surrounding villages," say the owners, "and award-winning butchers nearby. There is a lovely sense of community, with walking and cycling groups to take advantage of the amazing countryside, and dance classes to get involved with too! The lifestyle here is so much more relaxed than in the city, though the internet connection is, in fact, faster than we had in Milton Keynes so that we can work from home more easily here."
"It is such a luxury to finish work and simply step outside into the midst of the countryside, from the Shropshire hills to the rivers and canals to the historical medieval towns. Our nearby pubs all serve locally produced beers and good food so we are spoilt for choice whenever we go out."*
