A lovely country property in a truly spectacular location with beautiful views over the surrounding, undulating countryside and hills beyond.
The house is believed to date from the Nineteenth Century, with later extensions. The vendor has been in occupancy for about seventeen years now and is intending to scale down. As well as a comfortable four bedroom main house, a connecting door leads through to a ground floor suite of rooms, which could be used as ancillary accommodation for either teenage children or other dependants or for letting purposes which could provide good income.
The property has been utilised by the vendor for keeping a wide variety of animals including horses, sheep, ducks, chickens, dogs etc. There are a useful range of outbuildings in the yard to the rear.
Whilst in a truly secluded and rural situation, the property is a short drive to the main A483 giving excellent north/south communications. Newtown which lies on the River Severn has a wide range of facilities including shops, public houses, restaurants, theatre and museums, etc. There is also a railway station on the Birmingham International / Aberystwyth line, with regular trains to Shrewsbury and connections to the Cambrian coast and also the north west.

Accessed from the yard, behind the hay barn, there is a productive Vegetable Growing Area and a muck heap.

Just a quick thank you to you and your company for the help we received from you all. Every conversation with staff members was pleasant and caring. We will definitely recommend Rural Scene to others.
I really don’t know how to thank you for the last 2 months of your time you have been priceless and you are amazing at what you do and have helped to change my life 💝💝💝💝 Due to how amazing you clearly are we have so much trust and respect for you that we are going to be delighted to place our cottage on the market with Rural Scene once we have moved and we would recommend you without hesitation to anybody needing to sell a rural property x
We just wanted to pass on our enormous thanks for the hard work you and your company put into selling our property and helping with the purchase of this house. We also want to thank you for your unfailing support, encouragement and cheerfulness through what was, for us, a very stressful time
I just wanted to pass on my thanks for all your tremendous work during the sale of our property. It's been a bit of a rollercoaster at times but you did a great job in lining up the buyers for us. From the get-go I've felt we're in good hand with Rural Scene. Estate agents don't always get the best press but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone selling their smallholding.
I felt I must write to you both to express my gratitude for the work Abi Rhodes has done on the sale of M......... From the initial meeting she has demonstrated expert knowledge in our type of property that had just been lacking from other agents and filled us with confidence. Throughout the marketing and sale she has been thoroughly professional yet friendly in dealing with the 77 viewings we had to undertake to get to the final sale. Some of the people as we have neared the sale have frankly been rude and in some cases unpleasant and Abi has dealt with them all and shielded us from it completely. She has worked tirelessly to get us finally to completion. I would not hesitate in recommending your company to anyone looking to market the properties you work with.
