Owners Commens - Built-in 2007, this utterly charming three-bedroom country cottage occupies an enviable & exclusive setting amid the glorious Shropshire Hills. Clad in cedar wood with a reclaimed Welsh slate roof, the house was constructed using a traditionally jointed and pegged green oak frame that was sourced from award-winning Oakwrights of Hereford, and the result is a beautiful home that has been cleverly designed to blend effortlessly with its exceptionally picturesque surroundings. However internally this is very much a modern home for modern living.
"We felt the property was a perfect retreat & luxury holiday home rental, and for those two purposes it fitted the bill perfectly, but there were so many other things that attracted us to it," says the owner. "Firstly, the location is absolutely spectacular. There's a little brook that we can see from the garden, and lots of lovely footpaths through the beautiful surrounding countryside, including The Dingle, which is a really enchanting woodland walk that's practically on the doorstep. There are also some lovely country pubs nearby and Shrewsbury is only fifteen minutes away by car, so you get to enjoy utter peace and seclusion without the feeling of being isolated."
This layout of this lovely property has been beautifully designed to create open-plan living areas, which are flooded with natural light, whilst also providing separate living spaces for five adults arranged over two levels. Each main bedroom has a separate en-suite with underfloor heating. There are additional double sofa beds on each floor for extra guests & over-night entertaining. The house has been decorated using a pale, neutral palette - which not only enhances the feeling of light and space but also emphasises the stunning oak features. The owners under separate negotiation have all carefully chosen furnishings/items for sale so the new owners won't need to do a thing.
Outside the gardens extend off the living room area and are arranged over three levels, from where one can enjoy pretty views across to the brook and the glorious countryside beyond. The lower level, which is accessed via French doors from the living room is ideal for alfresco dining, the mid-level for drinks, and the upper level, which could be a perfect spot for a workshop or office. It is the ideal spot to enjoy the late sun into the evening.
"The double-height living room with log burner is probably the standout room in the house," says the owner. "You can sit by the fire on a cosy evening playing games and having drinks, then you can then head to the upper living-and-media room to relax and watch films."
The immediate surroundings are exceptionally peaceful and picturesque, and yet everything one might want or need is within easy reach. The house is situated just a mile from Worthen village, which boasts a convenience shop, a cosy pub and an active village hall, and the pretty towns of Montgomery, Welshpool and Shrewsbury are all within easy reach."
The current owners have relished updating this exceptional property and they have also kept it extremely well maintained. Among other things, they have updated the electrics and installed smart/Wifi heating throughout the whole of the ground floor, the boiler has had a complete overhaul and the parking area has been adapted with new drainage and hardcore foundation.
SERVICES - The property benefits from a solid fuel heating system, a bio-disc drainage system, double glazing. Mains electric and water.
