The charming and tranquil hamlet of Ellerdine Heath is found in the heart of the beautiful North Shropshire countryside yet is only 13 miles from the historic county town of Shrewsbury and the bustling 'new town' of Telford, both of which offer extensive shopping and recreation facilities.
The nearby villages of Hodnet, Shawbury and Crudgington offer a range of facilities including pubs, post office and shop, primary schools and butcher.

A greater variety of amenities can be found in the local market towns of Market Drayton and Wellington as well as the larger conurbations of Shrewsbury and Telford. The area is extremely well served educationally with both private and state primary and secondary schools and the renowned Harper Adams University is situated at nearby Newport. 

Although the cottage is found in a peaceful rural location, the area has excellent road links via the A442 to the M54 motorway, the A53 northwards to The Potteries and M6 and southwards to Shrewsbury and the A5. Mainline rail stations are found at Wellington and Shrewsbury.  
41 Platt Lane is a delightful, extended cottage and typifies the style of property built by the Duke of Sutherland to house his estate workers in the early 1900s  when the estate was predominant in North Shropshire. 

The cottage was skilfully extended in 2005 to provide the current versatile accommodation and great care was clearly taken architecturally to ensure that the new build portion melded with the old by matching the pitch of the roof and mirroring the typical dormer-style windows.

The original part of the cottage houses a cosy snug/family room with attractive brick fireplace and inset log-burning stove. This is complemented by a more spacious dining and sitting room which is housed in the extension and has the advantage of double doors to the substantial patio area which is partially covered by a glazed verandha allowing the space to be utilised in all weathers.  In addition there is a well-equipped kitchen with range of fitted appliances and adjoining utility room and separate WC. 

To the first floor are three bedrooms, the master having an en-suite shower room, and a family bathroom. The cottage has many attractive design features including period-style tiled hallway, and care has been taken to retain the charm of the period property whilst meeting modern specifications. 

In addition to the current accommodation there is the potential for further living space, subject to the necessary planning consents, in the log cabin found in the garden. This timber clad cabin has the benefit of a kitchenette and a separate shower room as well as living/ sleeping area. Alternatively this and the larger workshop (23'1 x 15'3) could be adapted to provide work or office space with relative ease given that mains services and a phone and alarm system are already connected to the workshop.

The property is approached from a quiet country lane via impressive wrought iron electric gates and these lead to a spacious tarmac parking and turning area. To the rear of the house is a large patio area, ideal for entertaining in the summer months, and this and the garden beyond enjoy uninterrupted views over open farmland to the rear. The plot as a whole totals 0.2 Acre.
We would highly recommend viewing  this charming cottage in order to fully appreciate the stunning idyllic location.
