Maybe Mayfield could be the dream home that you have longingly searched for?! A truly magnificent, fully refurbished, detached, 4 bedroom bungalow found on the very edge of the popular village of Bucknell which lies amidst the beautiful Shropshire countryside close to the English/Welsh border and sits in approximately 1.5 acres of landscaped gardens and enjoys views towards the surrounding rolling hills.

Built originally as a small 2 bedroom bungalow in 1962, this fabulous property has been beautifully renovated to an extremely high standard by the current owner over the past 4 years leaving quite literally no stone left un-turned. Having every last detail either renewed or upgraded from what was previously a very tired and dated property this stunning dwelling has had a complete transformation, from the central heating to the windows and doors, from the electrics to the inclusion of a large, signature rear extension almost doubling the original footprint, everything has received attention. The quality certainly does not finish inside with the vendor landscaping the gardens creating more usable and manageable garden space using wooden sleepers, as well as a newly laid tarmac front drive which now offers off road parking for at least 3 cars. To the rear of the bungalow the vendor has built a large, private patio area with glazed bi-folding doors leading back into the new kitchen diner, making this the perfect entertaining/relaxing spot within those warmer months of the year!

As mentioned Mayfield is conveniently situated right on the edge of the popular rural village of Bucknell and is found less than 0.25 of a mile from the village amenities including a shop, primary school, pub, butchers and train station which services four trains a day in each direction from Monday to Saturday on the Heart of Wales Railway Line that runs between Shrewsbury and Swansea and two services on a Sunday. Just outside Bucknell in the nearby hamlet of Bedstone is the highly-regarded, private school of Bedstone College. Rural, but by no means isolated Bucknell is centrally located just 6 miles from the border town of Knighton, 9 miles from the market town of Craven Arms and 4 miles from the much larger village of Leintwardine. Slightly further afield, historic Ludlow Town is 11 miles to the east.

Available to purchase to with no upward chain, Mayfield could be just what you are looking for if distant views, large gardens backing onto open countryside, immaculate accommodation with not a finger needed to be raised and a convenient village position close to amenities is what your after. A superb property, which any new owner/s would be proud of, Mayfield is ready for the new occupiers to simply move in the furniture and personal belongings, put their feet up, sit back and start calling this wonderful dwelling "home". A must view in our eyes!

Bedroom two has a window providing a front aspect, while bedroom three has a window to the side. Positioned on the opposite side of the hall to bedroom's two and three, the master bedroom is again a double bedroom with additional space for furnishings and a door which opens to a newly installed, private en-suite shower room. As previously mentioned, found at the rear of the of the property is the brand new extension which was added in 2015 and accommodates the showcase kitchen diner, bedroom four/study, the bathroom and a wash room. A fabulous room, the kitchen diner is the hub of the property and is swamped with natural light owing to 2 windows to the side, which frame distant views towards the surrounding hilltops and the feature, fully glazed bi-folding doors which slide back and lead out to the large rear patio area. The kitchen is installed with a bespoke range of wooden wall and base cupboards with wooden worktops over made by well known Russell Alexander and has an inset sink and space and plumbing for a dishwasher, American style fridge-freezer and a range cooker. All appliances including the Rangemaster cooker are available to purchase via separate negotiation.

A door off the kitchen diner leads into the utility room which has underfloor heating, space and plumbing for a washing machine and has a fitted base unit with a worktop over and an inset sink, while a further separate door from the kitchen opens into the bathroom which is installed with a attractive white suite of a w.c, vanity unit with inset wash hand basin, a shower unit with a fitted glazed shower screen and a free-standing bath. The bathroom is again finished to a high standard with tiled flooring and part tiled walls, a chrome heated towel radiator, underfloor heating and a window to the side.


From the road, a recently laid tarmac drive allows off road parking for at least 3 cars. The front garden is largely laid to lawn with hedged and fenced boundaries, as well as a gravelled seating area and accommodates the LP Gas tank in the bottom corner. To the right side of the property the tarmacadam drive continues all the way to rear, while to left hand side, the side garden is split between the lawn and a gravelled path which leads around the large private paved patio area found at the back of the property. Perfect for horticultural enthusiasts, the rear garden is two-tiered and landscaped using wooden sleepers creating more usable and manageable garden areas. The rear garden is largely laid to lawn and is stocked with a variety of mature shrubs and tress and a selection of flower beds and has well-defined fenced and hedged boundaries. Found at the very rear of the garden is an orchard stocked with a number of small fruit trees and has been sectioned off by the current owner using a fence to enclose chickens along with their coup. The owner is happy for the chickens to stay with the property. From the gardens, which stretch in total to approximately 0.5 acres, views towards the surrounding rolling hills are visible, while beyond the rear boundary of the garden is open countryside.
