This charming small holding is conveniently situated between Market Drayton and Telford with the smaller villages of Waters Upton and Crudgington nearby providing a range of facilities including a pub, post office, primary school and award winning butchers.
This period estate cottage dates back to the late 1800's and originally formed part of Duke of Sutherland’s Lilleshall Estate. As a result it boasts many lovely features such as open fire, beams and original quarry tiled floors.
The accommodation is well laid out and currently comprises three first floor double bedrooms, sitting room, snug, cosy country kitchen and a separate utility room. Having been sympathetically extended some years ago it is clear the cottage would now benefit from modernisation and extension works to further improve this charming home.
The Lilacs is further enhanced by a range of outbuildings which include a brick and tile shippon. Originally used for housing of pigs and other stock more recently this has been used for storage but clearly offers huge potential for conversion to provide additional living or working space. Alternatively it could be incorporated into the current house to provide further accommodation subject to any necessary planning consents.
Well maintained gardens wrap around the house yet thanks to the lions share being laid to lawn these would be low maintenance or equally provide a blank canvas for the green fingered amongst us.
The pasture land which lies beyond the gardens and buildings totals 6.18 acres and is the perfect space for the grazing of horses or stock.
All in all this delightful small holding offers an exciting opportunity to create a wonderful family home whilst embracing the good life.
This is our much loved family home. It will sadden me hugely to leave but I look forward to someone else enjoying an idyllic lifestyle here much as my family has.
A charming cottage with so much potential for extension and alteration.
