The local village of Cross Houses is 4miles away and benefits from a local shop with a Post Office and village pub. There are a variety of local primary and secondary schools within the area, both private and state, including Concord College, Bedstone College, William Brookes, Prestfelde Prepatory School and Shrewsbury School to name just a few. There is fantastic walking from the property itself around the surrounding Shropshire countryside.


April Cottage is a beautiful, stone-built semi-detached cottage, under a clay tiled roof. The property is full of character, having original deep stone walls and exposed timber beams throughout. The front door off the garden and entrance drive enters into the spacious, carpeted living room with feature log burning stove. Here there are dual aspect windows to the front and rear gardens. Off the living room are stairs to first floor level and a door through to the dining room, which benefits from under floor heating. Porcelain tiled flooring is laid in the dining room with a further log burning stove within a stone surround and oak mantel. Here there are built-in storage cupboards and the room also benefits from dual aspect windows, allowing in ample light. From here, a door continues into the kitchen which has quarry tiled flooring and a range of base mounted units with an inset electric range cooker and extractor above. A window over the sink overlooks the side garden and parking area beyond. There is also a useful downstairs shower room off the kitchen.

At first floor level there are three double bedrooms all with fitted wardrobes and exposed timbers throughout. The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with shower over the bath.


There are mature gardens to the front and side, mainly laid to lawn with a variety of flower beds, and mature hedges that surround the perimeter, along with a picket fence which is secure for dogs. There are also some raised beds for vegetable growing and a glass greenhouse which is neatly tucked away off the parking area. A lavender lined, large block paved path leads from the parking to the patio area and rear entrance. Often used as the main day to day access, the rear entrance has a stable door and an oak framed open porch. The large patio area is a great sheltered space for a table and chairs for alfresco entertaining off the kitchen. Off the rear patio area there are two timber kennels with runs and further brick storage buildings creating a courtyard with a large lean to log store. Across the access drive, there is further parking for two vehicles along with a secure compound area on a concrete pad having large swing gates.
