Lower Perthy, Ellesmere


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3

If you dislike bird song in the hedgerows and views over rolling countryside, then Crickett Cottage will not be the home for you…….

If, however, you prefer the finer things in life and really appreciate the opportunity to escape from the every day hustle and bustle of town/city life, then welcome to paradise!

It seems hard to believe that Ellesmere and Oswestry are only a few minutes drive away with their shops, schools, pubs and restaurants - they could be a million miles away! Life is very pleasant here. For a start, there are not many properties here (although there are neighbours, so it is far from isolated) and this, coupled with the fact that it backs onto fields with far reaching views means there is very little traffic to disturb the peace.

The property is certainly a 'doer-upper' based on the fact that it is in need of complete modernisation and improvement to realise its full potential. For all that, it offers spacious room dimensions and at least you will ultimately be able to choose your own kitchen/bathroom/decoration, without having to put up with someone else's taste (or lack of it)!

It is situated in a desirable rural hamlet on the edge of the well regarded North Shropshire ‘Lakeland’ town of Ellesmere, famous for its meres. Ellesmere has an excellent range of local shopping, recreational and educational facilities, and is within easy motoring distance of the larger centres of Oswestry, Shrewsbury, and Chester offering further facilities.

There are a range of state and private schools nearby including Packwood Haugh, Ellesmere College, Oswestry School, Lakelands Academy and Ellesmere Primary. There is a railway station in Gobowen, providing access to London, whilst the nearby A5/M54 provides access to Birmingham and the Midlands, along with regional airports at Birmingham and Manchester.
