Tranquility and outstanding countryside views await the new owners of a detached, four bedroomed house which has come on the market at Lee Brockhurst near Shrewsbury.
Set in three acres, 3 Lee Hill, Lee Brockhurst is on the market with Berrys with a guide price of £450,000.
The property comprises a fenced smallholding with a detached four bedroom house, separate annexe, garage, large gated parking area and south facing patio and garden. An ornamental pond lies adjacent to one of the two outbuildings on the land that extends to approximately three acres.
The house has a large family kitchen with stone tiled floor, modern wall and floor units, an oil fired Aga and Combi Boiler supplying central heating in addition to the warmth provided by the wood burner in the lounge. On the first floor there is a family bathroom and four bedrooms, three with en suite facilities.
“Walking around the paddock, it is easy to see why the current owners had pretty much made up their mind to buy, before they had even been in the house,” said Philip Robinson, residential agency manager with Berrys at Shrewsbury.
“The house is in an elevated position adjacent to hillside woodland with stunning views over the surrounding countryside. A gate leads straight from the property into the woodland, which is protected by the National Trust, and the village of Lee Brockhurst is within walking distance along one of the many scenic footpaths and bridleways in the area.
“With three acres of land and outbuildings, the property has scope for a small livestock enterprise and would make the perfect home for a family with pets or ponies.
“The annexe is currently used as accommodation but could be used as an office or a base for a business,” he added.
Lee Brockhurst is a hamlet mentioned in the Domesday Book and a number of buildings of historic importance remain, including the 12th Century sandstone St.Peters Church. The village retains a community feel and there are many local activities centred round the Church and the Village Hall.

Nearby Weston (2.3 miles) is home to Maynard’s Farm Shop that supply produce to The Inn at Grinshill (3.7 miles).
