This idyllic country cottage is situated on a leafy country lane just outside the small village of Norton-in-Hales which is approximately five miles from the historic town of Market Drayton.

The attractive and much sought-after village of Norton-in-Hales was winner of the gold medal in the 2019 Britain in Bloom competition and is well known for its strong sense of village community centred around an excellent pub, thriving primary school and stunning Grade II*  listed church.

Equidistant, but to the west, is the village of Adderley which boasts a small range of facilities  including a primary school, village hall licensed for events, bowling green and listed Church. 
Market Drayton has a wide range of amenities including schools, shops, supermarkets, leisure facilities and doctors' surgery.

Within a 20-mile radius are Nantwich, Shrewsbury and Newcastle-under-Lyme, all of which offer a wider range of services.  The area is well served by private and state primary and secondary schools and the property is well placed for commuters with excellent road and rail links and airports within 1.5 hours' drive.

This stunning area of North Shropshire is particularly popular with walkers, cyclists and equestrians who all enjoy combining the benefits of rural living with the convenience of nearby facilities.

The house is set well back from the road and approached over a gravel drive which bisects the beautiful gardens and leads to a gravel parking area.

The front door gives access to the main hall and leads into the galley kitchen which is located at the front of the house overlooking the front garden and drive. To the rear of the house are the two reception rooms, both of which benefit from a fireplace and one enjoys an open outlook over farmland to the rear. Interconnecting doors allow them to be used as two separate or one large room.  To the first floor are three bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Adjacent to the house and linked by a covered walkway is a brick outhouse and utility room with WC.  This could, subject to any necessary planning consents, form the basis of an extension to the property.

The gardens are a true delight, found predominantly to the front of the house they extend to 0.66 Acre and are mostly laid to lawn with the borders filled with a fine selection of specimen trees and shrubs.  Adjoining the garden is an area of rough ground and woodland which would be ideal for use as a vegetable patch and/or for the housing of chickens. There is also a greenhouse and wooden garden shed.

The gardens and seating area to the rear of the house are entirely private and offer both a sun-trap and complete seclusion for the enjoyment of this aptly named 'haven'.

This fabulous property has been in the same family ownership since it was built in 1939 and the sale offers a rare opportunity for a buyer to improve and enhance to their own tastes to create a perfect family home.
