Stunning, spacious, sunny home on the Welsh / Cheshire / Shropshire border. Freshly decorated, set in an acre of well kept garden of mature shrubs, flowers, vegetables and fruit trees and woodland area.
Heated swimming pool (June, July and August), log burner and ample parking. We have solar panels and a Tesla battery so are almost self sufficient energy wise .

Charles Darwin spent many a summer next door with the local GP and his sister ...so maybe as our house was the orchard, you may well step where he did! Another claim to fame is that Russell Crowe’s (actor) uncle Frank Crowe built and lived here for years!
