Fernleigh is a charming detached cottage found on a peaceful country lane on the outskirts of the popular village of Harmer Hilll. Whilst Harmer Hill is only a small village, it does have an active social community with a pub and thriving village hall.
Harmer Hill is only seven miles north of the historic market town of Shrewsbury, which is a haven for shoppers and tourists, and offers extensive social and leisure facilities and a wide selection of schools.
The market town of Wem is slightly further north and offers a smaller, but nonetheless comprehensive, range of boutique-style shops, bank, post office and small supermarket as well as a large number of pubs and restaurants.
Commuters will find the property is well placed for access to a number of commercial centres with the M54 and A5 offering easy access both north to Oswestry and Chester and south to the West Midlands. With the local station of Yorton providing regular connections to Shrewsbury, Crewe and beyond and two bus routes servicing the village, the property is exceptionally accessible.
Fernleigh really does offer the best of both worlds being within close proximity of towns yet equally enjoying a rural location. The network of quiet country lanes and bridlepaths beyond the property offer endless opportunities for walking, cycling or riding and true enjoyment of the country lifestyle.
The internal accommodation, which would benefit from a scheme of modernisation and reconfiguration, currently comprises a utility room, kitchen with log burning stove with back boiler to provide hot water and central heating, sitting room with open fire and dining room. To the first floor there are four bedrooms and a family bathroom.
Outside, the property is complemented by generous mature gardens with areas of lawn interspersed with bushes and trees. These include a Yew tree which, based on its size and a number of historic plans on which it is identified, is believed to be at least 500 years old.
Adjacent to the house is a sandstone and brick part two-storey building. Originally a dwelling this building is now in a state of disrepair but with the relevant planning permission this could be converted for a variety of uses including a holiday let, self contained annex for a dependent relative, office space or workshop.
The gardens and land offer immense potential for landscaping according to individual taste and preference and the property extends to just over 1.97 Acres in all. The pasture land has a separate access from the road and is sub divided in to small paddocks, several of which are well established fruit trees such as apple, plum and pear trees. This land would be equally well suited for the grazing of horses or other stock.
The sale provides a rare opportunity to acquire an attractive country cottage with potential for improvement situated in this particularly popular rural location.
