Situation: The Orchard, 8 Canal Side is very much a lifestyle purchase. One can choose to walk the dog on the local tracks and trails, take a boat or kayak onto the canal, or enjoy the serenity of the south facing garden which includes a vegetable plot that benefits from highly fertile soil.

The garden is large enough to accommodate a garden structure like a summer house, garden office or, subject to planning permission, an annexe/further residential dwelling.

Located in the area known as Fenn's, Whixall and Bettisfield Mosses, one of the biggest and best raised bogs in Britain, the astonishingly varied wildlife makes it a place of international importance. The Mosses are a Natural Nature Reserve.

North Wales is only a few minutes' drive away with the Snowdonia National Park an hour and a half drive north west.

Local schools in Whixall, Tilstock, Whitchurch and Ellesmere are also within easy reach and offer the full range of educational facilities.

The property enjoys a coach house style layout and is situated a short walk away from the Shropshire Union Canal which is used by barge owners, by local fishermen (under license) as well as those looking to enjoy kayaking and canoeing. There is a berthing point close by.

There is an entrance vestibule from the garden, leading to an open hallway currently being used as a study area. To the right is the formal dining room, leading on to the craft room which has been previously used as a fourth bedroom. The reception room with log burning stove is to the left. This leads to the back door, WC and to a corridor to the kitchen breakfast room with Sandyford Stove, used for cooking and hot water.

There is a garage with electric door, which leads to a storage area doubling up as a work shop. The garage could also be converted (STPP) if further accommodation is required.

Upstairs, one will find a conventional layout with three bedrooms and two bathrooms (one of which is en suite).

The property does require some modernisation throughout but benefits from good internet speed and is being sold chain free.

Directions: From Shrewsbury head north on the A528 and continue through Albrighton and into Harmer Hill. Continue on the B5476 towards Wem and drive through the village towards Coton. As you approach Coton, take the lane on the left named Post Office Lane and continue through Whixall, Brownsbrook and Welsh End. Continue left onto Platt Lane and left again before the bridge running along the canal. Follow this with the canal on your right until the next bridge, drive over this one keeping right onto a gravel track running on the opposite side of the canal. The track bends to the left where you will find The Orchard, 8 Canal Side on the left.
