Full Details

A detached three bedroom cottage in an enviable rural situation, having a plot of approximately 3 acres. A perfect property for a renovation project or to explore the possibility of extending to create a wonderful rural family home, subject to planing permissions.

The plot totals approximately 3 acres, consisting of a large garden and separate paddock with independent gated access from the lane. There are several large outbuildings associated with the property and although are not in great condition, serve as a useful footprint if repairs are desirable.

The cottage has been recently tenanted and is presented with vacant possession. The cottage is habitable but any buyer will no doubt see an opportunity for a scheme of renovation and improvements, perhaps even exploring the opportunity to extend subject to planning to create a wonderful family home.

Shortwood and the neighboring hamlet of Podmore enjoy some beautiful, uninterrupted views over gently rolling agricultural land. Although enjoying the feeling of remoteness, the cottage is within easy reach of the Potteries, Stafford, Newcastle under Lyme and Nantwich.

The property is accessed by a private driveway giving it a good degree of privacy, with parking to the side for a number of vehicles and double gates opening into a rear yard and outbuildings.

The front door opens directly into the sitting room with dual aspect double glazed windows and oil-fired Rayburn that provides heating and hot water to the property. Beyond the sitting room is an inner hallway with turned stairs rising to the first floor, ground floor bathroom to the left and galley kitchen and pantry cupboard to the right. There is a lean-to sunroom off the kitchen with doors opening out to the garden.

There are three bedrooms on the first floor, two large single bedrooms and a smaller single, all of which enjoy far reaching views.

There is a large rear garden and area of hard surfacing to the rear, with a range of outbuildings. The separate paddock extends to approximately 2 acres having access form the lane.

Drainage is by way of septic tank while water is on a private borehole supplying 6 other properties in the hamlet. We believe that high speed broadband has just been installed by Open Reach.
