12a Platt Lane, Whixall


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
VIDEO AVAILABLE ON REQUEST - If you think that living in the country is all about winding lanes, dodging tractors, gazing over fields and watching the wildlife, then you are probably not wrong!

That is why we are pleased to have this particular detached country house on our books. Interestingly enough though, it is very well placed for relatively easy travel into Whitchurch (just over 4 miles) and you can be in the town within a matter of minutes.

Of course, if you are looking for local restaurants, clubs, shops and glitzy high life in Whixall itself, then this is most definitely NOT the property for you.

That is the whole point of living out in the sticks - you feel as though you are miles from anywhere; just feel the weight lifting off your shoulders as you hit the open countryside and leave the hustle and bustle of every day life behind you - welcome to paradise!

This spacious family home takes full advantage of all of this and it has the great advantage of occupying a generous plot with a large lawned garden, plenty of off-road parking, a large detached double garage and somewhat rickety (but very useful) 75 foot open fronted barn.

The grounds are of course a haven for both children and pets, with enough room for a set of goalposts, cricket nets and trampoline without really making any impact on available space for adults who may wish to lounge around on the large patio or fish from the small pool.

So there you have it, if you feel like a bit of tractor dodging and fancy a trip out into beautiful Shropshire countryside, give us a call and book yourselves a viewing!!
