The Property

A well presented, 2 bedroom detached bungalow located in a semi-rural position with distant views across the surrounding Shropshire countryside. Holters are delighted to offer prospective purchasers the exciting opportunity to acquire this delightful, detached bungalow located in the semi-rural hamlet of Twitchen, just outside the village of Clunbury, which is nestled in the picturesque Clun Valley.

Set amidst some of the most beautiful and scenic countryside England has to offer, Briercliffe is a well maintained, 2 bedroom property, which offers distant frontward views across the adjoining fields and is centrally positioned within approximately 0.5 acres of wonderfully kept gardens, perfect for horticultural enthusiasts.

Originally built in 1963, Briercliffe has been upgraded and lovingly maintained by the current owners over the past 18 years including the installation of the conservatory, double glazing and UPVC sofits, barge and fascia boards, just to name a select few. Inside, the accommodation is made up of 3 reception rooms, a family bathroom, a breakfast kitchen, the 2 double bedrooms as mentioned and a converted attic room, which could be used for a variety of uses. Outside, asides to the large garden, the property offers a detached garage, a parking area, an array of garden sheds fitted with power and a useful lean-to store, which is accessed straight off the kitchen and could be ideally suited to becoming a more formal utility room with w.c, subject to all necessary permissions.

The property occupies a peaceful and private position, worlds apart from the hustle and bustle of city living with not a street light in sight and the twinkling stars clearly visibly to see above on a clear night, Briercliffe could just be the dream countryside retreat you have always yearned for. Rural, but by no means isolated, the property is situated just 1 mile from the larger village of Clunbury, which offers a well-regarded primary school and a village hall, whilst further a field the historic town of Clun sits 5 miles to the west and the market town of Craven Arms 6 miles to the east, which both offers a much wider range of retail, educational and recreational amenities. Closer to home, the village of Hopton Heath found 1.5 miles to the south conveniently has a railway 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.

From the roadside, a parking area leads to the detached garage, which has paved steps lead off up through 2 wicket gates and the front garden to the entrance door of the property. Inside, a hallway has a loft hatch allowing access up to the converted attic room and separate doors off opening into the 2 double bedrooms, the living room and the dining room. Located on the left hand side of the hallway, both bedrooms one and two have sufficient space for double beds and additional furnishings, whilst bedroom one has a distant frontward outlook across the surrounding countryside and bedroom two has a rear aspect over the garden. On the right hand side of the hallway is the living room, which again has a distant frontward outlook, ample space for a three-piece-suite and a focal point in the shape of a fitted wood-burning stove on top of a stone hearth. At the rear of the hall finds the bathroom, which is installed with a matching white suite of w.c, wash hand basin and a panelled bath with shower over. The bathroom is complete with part tiled walls, an airing cupboard and a window to the rear. The final door from the hallway lead into the dining room, which has space for a set of table and chairs and additional furnishings, a doorway to the rear leading into the kitchen and an opening leading straight into the superb conservatory. The dining room also accommodates the fitted Multi-fuel Rayburn Supreme set into an alcove heating the domestic hot water and central heating. The conservatory is a great addition to the property allowing flexible accommodation and a light and airy seating area, which overlooks the gardens. A door from the conservatory leads outside into the garden and this door is used largely used by the owners as the main entrance door to the property. At the rear of the property, the kitchen is installed with a range of base cupboards with fitted worktops over and an inset sink unit. There is space and plumbing for a dishwasher, fridge, washing machine and electric cooker, whilst separate doors lead off into a useful walk-in pantry and out to the lean-to store area.

Briercliffe occupies an idyllic position on the edge of the small hamlet of Twitchen located just outside the village of Clunbury found between the towns of Clun and Craven Arms in the south of the rural county of Shropshire.
