Property Description 

This charming property is found on the outskirts of the thriving village of Shawbury which has a lively village centre with a variety of shops and facilities including small supermarket, butcher, delicatessen, garage, medical centre and primary school.  There are  several pubs and takeaways in the village and the popular Fox and Hounds gastro-pub is only a short cross-country walk away.

The historic market town of Shrewsbury, which boasts 660 listed buildings and is a mecca for shoppers and tourists alike,  is only four miles distant and offers plentiful individual and national shops as well as an excellent selection of both private and state primary and secondary schools.

The peaceful rural location of Chetwynd belies the fact that it is situated only quarter of a mile from the A53 and consequently is well placed for access to connected towns, cities and commuter routes via the A5 and M54 motorway. Furthermore there are rail links from Shrewsbury town centre and international airports within a 90 minute drive. 

The delightful bungalow is accessed along a track and is set back from the village, creating a feeling of privacy and seclusion which is rare in such close proximity to a busy village.

The single-storey accommodation includes two reception rooms to the front of the property, currently utilised as a sitting room and dining room, both of which enjoy picture windows overlooking the garden. The kitchen is found to the rear of the house and is linked via a lean-to with a range of domestic outbuildings which offer further storage space. There are two substantial double bedrooms and two further single bedrooms which equally could be reconfigured to provide further bathroom space or a study or office.

Although well presented, and in an immediately occupiable condition, Chetwynd offers potential for improvement and alteration.  The adjoining buildings and attached garage offer potential for extension and the loft space could be converted to add further living space.  Please note that any alterations would be subject to the necessary planning permissions.

Delightful mature, lawned gardens are found to all sides of the bungalow and are complemented by several outbuildings all of which could be used for a variety of purposes including kennelling, workshops, storage or playhouses.  With planted borders, a patio area, small ornamental pond and large greenhouse, the gardens are enhanced by a traditional orchard with selection of native fruit trees.  The range of trees and shrubs in the garden are a lasting testament to the previous owner, who was a passionate gardener with a keen eye for design and detail.

Pasture land extending to 1.94 Acres is found to the rear of the property and would be ideal for a variety of uses including the grazing of horses or livestock. In addition there is a wooden building, previously used as a hay store and stable which could be altered to provide more substantial animal housing.  Equally the gardens, orchard and paddock which encompass the bungalow could provide a children’s paradise, with ample space to play in idyllic surroundings.

For those with equestrian interests a bridlepath runs past the property providing a link with the B5063 and thereafter a network of quiet country lanes and further bridlepaths, ideal for riding out.  

Viewing of this delightful, hidden-away property is highly recommended to fully appreciate the peaceful location and much sought-after potential to develop an idyllic family home. The property is also sold with the benefit of no upward chain.
