Location, land and potential

A semi-detached, rural three-bedroom cottage, with enormous potential plus a paddock, stable and workshop has been launched to the market with a guide price of £335,000.

Number Three, Shorthill, Lea Cross, is in a sought-after location only six miles from Shrewsbury and two miles from the vibrant village of Pontesbury. The cottage enjoys views over open countryside and has potential for a full renovation, according to Alistair Hilton, head of sales at Balfours.

The accommodation currently provides porch, lounge and the kitchen and dining room, also a hall and garden porch. The kitchen has a quarry tile floor, while the dining room benefits from a fireplace. There are two double bedrooms on the first floor, together with a single room, with bathroom beyond.

External features include a wraparound garden, paddock of 2.95 acres, stables, workshop, good parking space. Alistair adds: “While Number Three has fitted kitchen and bathroom amenities and is perfectly liveable, it also has excellent prospects to improve, modernise and develop. Add to this its convenient location to the county town and the major road networks and it presents a very exciting opportunity.” For more information call Balfours on 01743 353511.
