The property has the benefit of an oil fired central heating system, double glazed windows throughout and is presented for sale with the fitted carpets included in the purchase price.
The gardens are a particularly attractive feature of the property, being well laid out, ideal for continuation of the current usage, or could be landscaped according to ones individual tastes and requirements. There are wonderful outlooks in all directions over totally unspoilt farmland.
The sale of Little Crickett provides an unusual opportunity to purchase a substantial detached country house with lovely surrounding gardens in such an unspoilt yet easily accessible rural location. An inspection is highly recommended.
Little Crickett is situated in a superb unspoilt rural location in the heart of unspoilt countryside. Whilst enjoying the peaceful and rural aspect it is only approximately 3 miles from the North Shropshire Lakeland town of Ellesmere which has an excellent range of local shopping, recreational and educational facilities. The nearby larger centres of Oswestry (7 miles) and the county town of Shrewsbury (17 miles) are both also within easy motoring distance, both of which have a more comprehensive range of amenities of all kinds. The A5 road network is also approximately 5 miles away giving easy access both North and South.
From Ellesmere, take the A495 for approximately 2 miles and turn right signposted 'Perthy ½ mile'. Continue along this quiet country lane for approximately 0.8 of a mile and turn right signposted 'Criftins / Dudleston Heath'. Proceed for approximately 0.3 of a mile and bear left, and after approximately 0.1 of a mile Little Crickett will be found on the left hand side, identified by a Halls for sale board.
