Property Summary

A roomy and thoughtfully-designed family home on a corner plot located on a cul-de-sac with a spacious, enclosed rear garden, double garage and ready access to local amenities.

Not far from the Welsh borders and approximately 1.5km from the centre of Oswestry, the property is within 20 miles of Shrewsbury to the south-east and 15 miles of Wrexham to the north.

Location
Gatcombe Gardens is on a residential estate on the extreme eastern edge of Oswestry within easy reach of the A5 but connected to the town centre by regular bus services from nearby Balmoral Crescent. School bus services also run every morning in term time to Woodside primary school, The Marches secondary school and Oswestry College from a stop approximately 50m of the front door. Amenities within easy reach include a recreation area with a play park, Eastern Oswestry Community Centre, the Meadows Primary School – rated “good” by Ofsted at its last inspection – a Co-op convenience store on Cabin Lane, a fish-and-chip shop and The Unicorn pub which screens live sports and hosts occasional live music nights. Oswestry town itself boasts a selection of superstores – including a Sainsbury’s, an M&S Simply Food store, a Morrison’s, a Lidl and an Aldi - a good range of independent high street shops, bars, restaurants and banks while the Penda Retail Park is located on the south side of town.

Exterior
The property is separated from the road on two sides by a lawn fringed with growing shrubs while an asphalt drive leads to an integral double garage with twin up-and-over doors. A path leads to the covered porch and another to a timber gate to the side of the garage which opens onto a passageway to the rear of the house.

Here, timber fence panels, a head-high, red-brick wall adjacent to the road, and an evergreen hedge at the foot of the garden mark the boundaries of the property. An extensive lawn is divided in half by a concrete path while a flagstone patio with its own in-built barbecue runs the entire length of the rear elevation, separate from the lawn by a low brick-built wall. There is a timber shed for storage and some external security lighting.

Interior
The front door opens onto a reception hall with a cushioned floor and wall-mounted radiator with stairs to the right leading to the first floor. An internal oak door opens onto the downstairs WC, while two more with inset glass panels lead to the lounge and the kitchen.

The lounge is carpeted and equipped with a TV point, candelabra-style light fittings on the walls and ceiling controlled by dimmer switches and a wall-mounted, living-flame electric fire surrounded by a cream-coloured mantle. A bay window allows in plenty of light while a feature wall is decorated with flower-patterned wallpaper.

Double oak and glass-panelled doors open on to the dining room, which is also carpeted and fitted with matching candelabra-style light fittings. Striped wallpaper decorates a feature wall with three-quarter-length external double doors opening on the patio in the rear garden while another oak door inset with a glass panel leads to the kitchen.

Fitted with an easy-to-clean, tile effect floor, the kitchen is equipped with light-coloured wooden base and wall units above and below black rolled laminate worktops while additional storage is offered by a large cupboard beneath the stairs. Brick-effect, splashback tiling has been fitted above all preparation areas while the design incorporates an in-built, eye-level electric oven and grill, a Cooke & Lewis four-ring gas hob beneath an extractor. A stainless steel 1 1/2 sink unit with rinsing bowl, drainer and chrome mixer tap with extendable tap head is located beneath a window overlooking the rear garden while an archway leads through to the separate utility room, equipped with space and plumbing for a washing machine and separate drier. The utility room also has its own stainless steel sink, an additional storage cupboard and worktop matching those in the kitchen and a door leading to the double garage. All cupboards and drawers are fitted with soft-close mechanisms.

The carpeted stairs to the first floor lead to a landing with internal doors opening onto all four double bedrooms, the master with an en-suite double shower room with its own sink and WC as well as in-built wardrobes along one wall. The second bedroom also has a triple, in-built wardrobe with mirrored sliding doors while, of the two remaining bedrooms, one is carpeted and one fitted with wood effect floor.

The house bathroom is also located on the first floor and is tiled in black with a grey, tiled floor surrounding a white panel bath, pedestal sink and dual flush WC.

The house has loft and cavity wall insulation, double glazing and a gas-fired central heating system with thermostat and individual controls on all radiators. Low-energy lighting has also been fitted in all fixed points.
