A superbly appointed 5 bedroom country house with superb surrounding gardens, garaging and land, extending, in all, to around 5 acres or thereabouts, in a super unspoilt rural location in the heart of the unspoilt north Shropshire countryside.
Halls are favoured with instructions to offer Old Malt Kiln, near Bronington, for sale by private treaty.
Old Malt Kiln is a superbly appointed 5 bedroom country house with superb surrounding gardens, garaging and land, extending, in all, to around 5 acres or thereabouts, in a super unspoilt rural location in the heart of the unspoilt north Shropshire countryside.
The property, which was sympathetically converted from a barn and substantially extended by the current Vendors, now provides deceptively spacious and attractively presented internal accommodation of great charm and character, at present comprising a Rear Entrance Hall, Dining Room, Study, Living Room, Kitchen/Breakfast Room, Family Room and Reception Hall together with five first floor Bedrooms, a Shower Room and a Bathroom. The property has the benefit of double glazed windows, an oil fired central heating system and is presented for sale with the fitted carpets included in the purchase price.
Outside, the property has superb landscaped gardens comprising a most extensive vegetable and soft fruit area with greenhouse, adjacent mature lawns, all most private, together with an excellent oak framed covered patio terrace, making a lovely setting for outside dining/entertaining etc. There is a double garage block with adjacent car port and further concrete hard standing for the parking of further vehicles, together with a timber stable block, now used for storage purposes.
The land is a major feature of the property and is predominantly down to permanent pasture, divided in to convenient sized enclosures, ideal for the grazing of all kinds of livestock, if required, particularly horses. There are two areas of woodland, one of which provides a lovely feature ideal for outdoor activities.
The sale of Old Malt Kiln does, therefore, provide an excellent opportunity to purchase such a well appointed detached family house with super gardens and equestrian facilities in this unspoilt north Shropshire location, yet still within easy access of the nearby centres of Ellesmere, Whitchurch, Chester and Shrewsbury. An inspection of Old Malt Kiln is highly recommended.
Old Malt Kiln is outside the popular North Shropshire village of Bronington, which has a useful range of local amenities to include a local shop and primary school. It is, however, only 5 miles away from the well known North Shropshire town of Whitchurch, which has an excellent range of local shopping, recreational and educational facilities. The county towns of Shrewsbury (20 miles) and Chester (24 miles) are both within easy motoring distance and both have a more comprehensive range of amenities of all kinds.
From Ellesmere proceed on the A495 through the village of Welshampton and continue in the direction of Bronington. Just before the village of Bronington, turn right signposted Chapel Lane. Continue on this lane for 0.7 mile and the property will be located on the right hand side, identified by a 'Halls' for sale board.
