If this were a lonely-hearts column, the opening sentence might read "Run down country bungalow seeks new owner for TLC and long term relationship".

Such is the nature of this mature property which has not been lived in for several years and is now sadly neglected.

Undoubtedly, it will not be for the feint hearted and for sure, it will take up a great deal of your time (and money!). For all that, you will end up with a lovely home that, when it is restored to its once former glory (see images shown on Google Street View, April 2009), could be your dream home.

It occupies a good-sized plot that backs onto fields, although the grounds are now completely overgrown and you may need a machete to even consider gaining access to the rear boundary!

Inside, things aren't much better. The boiler that connected radiators has long since disappeared and the night storage heaters that took their place have rusted beyond repair. The kitchen is beyond salvation, although it has to be said that the bedrooms and sitting room are a good size.

There is a versatile accommodation layout and subject to planning consent, there is ample space to extend the bungalow without compromising the gardens.

The timber garage is unlikely to remain standing for much longer and we do not advise entering it (or any of the other sheds and outbuildings) for safety reasons.

For all that, an inspection is strongly recommended. It may be a test of your DIY skills, but once completed at least you will ultimately be able to choose your own kitchen/bathroom/decoration, without having to put up with someone else's taste (or lack of it)!

It is pleasantly situated in a rural location, which is by no means isolated and is within easy reach of both Whitchurch and Wem, each having a comprehensive range of shops, schools and amenities, including a railway station.

It is offered for sale, CHAIN FREE, ensuring immediate possession upon completion.
