Property SummaryA country cottage with some delightful features including three reception rooms with exposed beams, a large kitchen/diner, a generous garden and parking for several vehicles.

In the tiny hamlet of Myddlewood north of Shrewsbury, the property is surrounded by open farmland but within a mile of the larger settlement of Myddle, from where buses run regularly to Ellesmere and Shrewsbury itself. The village is also home to a small convenience store and newsagents as well as the recently-refurbished Red Lion pub, and the Myddle Church of England Primary School - rated good by Ofsted in 2017.
With Shrewsbury, Wem and Yorton train stations all within a 20 minute drive offering easy access for commuters to destinations further afield including Birmingham, Manchester and Cardiff.
The larger village of Baschurch also lies just over two miles to the south-west and offers many convenient amenities including shops and pubs. There is a tennis club in the village while Baschurch Primary School was also rated good by Ofsted in 2017 - as was the adjacent Corbet School Academy, which provides secondary level education in the area.
Set back from the road and accessed by a gravel driveway, the traditional, stone-built cottage with its brick extension is surrounded on two sides by a gravel parking area offering plenty of space for a number of vehicles, with flowerbeds planted with roses and established shrubs adjacent to the house.
The remainder of the garden includes a seating area surrounded by mature fruit trees and an extensive, enclosed and well-kept lawn, with ample shade provided by more mature trees and shrubs, which also offer privacy from adjoining homes.
The front door opens onto the first of three reception rooms where the homes traditional cottage ambiance is evident immediately. Solid oak beams in the ceiling are complemented by a wooden floor while a white-painted, inglenook fireplace is inset with a cast-iron log burner. Off the sitting room is the second reception room with cast iron fireplace offering additional versatile space as a study, music room or play room. Stairs rise from here to the first floor.
An internal door leads through to the kitchen/diner which boasts a terracotta-tiled floor with plenty of room for a family-sized dining table and chairs adjacent to a cooking and preparation area. The kitchen includes an oil fired Rayburn range which also provides the heating and hot water. A Belfast sink with chrome mixer tap - and with pine base units either side - is located beneath the window, a second window to the other side of the room allowing in plenty of natural light. An internal door from the kitchen also leads to the utility room complete with Belfast sink and mixer tap and space and plumbing for washing machine as well as the downstairs loo, equipped with a WC and hand basin.
Another solid-wood, latched, internal door offers access to the second, more spacious lounge within the brick-built extension, designed to blend perfectly with the older parts of the property, including a slate tiled floor and a vaulted ceiling with solid oak beam beneath Velux-style windows. A second, free-standing log burner mounted on a slate hearth and with a heat-resistant, tiled surround is located in the corner while additional features include underfloor heating and double French doors opening onto the garden to the side of the house.
The carpeted stairs to the first floor lead to a landing with latched, solid-wood, internal doors which lead to two double and two single bedrooms, a large storage cupboard and the house bathroom. Two of the bedrooms include solid oak beams and carpets with views over the gardens below.
The house bathroom is fully-tiled and equipped with a pedestal sink with chrome mixer tap beneath a Velux window, underfloor heating, a WC with dual flush and a bath with tiled surround and chrome shower over.
