DESCRIPTION

Halls are delighted with instructions to offer The Hollies, Colemere, for sale by private treaty.

The Hollies is a unique Grade II listed detached 4 bedroom thatched country cottage, dating back to the mid -17th century, offering potential for complete refurbishment and possible extension (subject to LA & LB consents), with surrounding gardens and grounds extending to around 1.2 acres, situated in one of the most popular villages in north Shropshire.

The internal accommodation, which does offer immense potential for modernisation, currently provides, on the ground floor, a Reception Hall, Living Room, Kitchen/Breakfast Room, Sun Room, Study/Music Room, Utility Room, ground floor Shower Room and Rear Entrance Hall, together with four first floor Bedrooms and a WC. The property benefits from a wealth of charm and character, with exposed timbers and brickwork, as well as the modern day convenience of oil fired central heating.

Outside, the property is complimented by extensive gardens and grounds with lawns to the front and rear all bordered to one side by an area of amenity land offering great potential for landscaping according to ones individual tastes and requirements. There is a most useful garage/workshop which does, also, offer potential for a number of usages.

The sale of The Hollies, at Colemere, does, therefore, provide an extremely rare opportunity for purchasers to acquire a detached thatched country cottage with potential for refurbishment and possible extension (subject to Local Planning Authority and Listed Building Consent) with super gardens and grounds in this most popular village location.

Halls, the sole selling agents, strongly recommend an immediate inspection of the property to appreciate the potential that it has to offer to become a first class country property.

SITUATION

The Hollies is situated in the sought after North Shropshire hamlet of Colemere in the heart of what is known as the "Shropshire Lakelands", due to its famous meres and waterways. The property is within a short walk of the church, sailing club and Colemere itself which boasts a beautiful circular walk. Whilst enjoying this totally rural location, the nearby North Shropshire towns of Ellesmere (3 miles), Wem (7 miles) and Whitchurch (10 miles) are all within easy motoring distance and all have an excellent range of local shopping, recreational and educational facilities. The county towns of Shrewsbury (14 miles) and Chester (26 miles) are, also, within easy reach and, of course, have a more comprehensive range of amenities of all kinds.

DIRECTIONS

From Ellesmere take the A528 Shrewsbury road south, for approximately 1.5 miles to "Spunhill" and turn left signposted Colemere. Proceed on this quiet country lane to the T-junction in the centre of Colemere and turn left. Continue for a short distance and The Hollies will be situated on the right hand side identified by a Halls 'For Sale' board.
