This is a unique property; you won't find another like it in Whitchurch. Secondly, it has a fabulous location abutting the tow path to the Shropshire Union Canal and lastly, it is offered with no onward chain, so you will not be stuck waiting for someone to vacate if you are in a hurry.
Undoubtedly, this property is a real gem. The location is spot on. It's next to a hump backed bridge, which has views over the Whitchurch Arm of the Shropshire Union Canal. And yes, it gets better..... the side garden not only has similar views from its raised deck, but it also has steps leading down to the canal tow path. From here, there is a possible full mooring, subject to a successful application to the Whitchurch Waterways Trust.
What's more, from here, you can easily stroll into town by cutting through Greenfields Nature Reserve (ideal, if you have a dog) and for those travelling by car, there is swift access to the bypass. Fast road links provide access into Cheshire, Shropshire and North Wales.
An inspection of the cottage itself will reveal compact, yet evenly proportioned rooms and most of the internal doors have been replaced to replicate what would have been the original ones, complete with iron latches and hinges.
There is a comfortable lounge, a functional kitchen, a most useful conservatory addition at the rear and a downstairs shower room.
Upstairs, both bedrooms are 'doubles' and there is a family bathroom.
Outside, the well stocked side garden has steps down to the canal frontage and there is a recently constructed timber summerhouse which is a lovely place in which to sit and relax during windy/rainy weather.
Make no bones about it, this is a very special home - blink and you may miss it.
