Horsemans Green

Guide price

Bedrooms: 3
As the song goes, "If you go down in the woods today, you're sure of a big surprise".

In reality, the big surprise is finding that there is a wood at all! Just when you think you have reached the end of the garden, a small gate takes you into a delightful wooded 'secret' garden with a variety of trees and shrubs.

It is fair to say that this cottage is full of surprises; not just the size of the plot itself or the fact that the modernised accommodation still retains much of its original charm, but the huge potential with the detached 2-storey double garage.

This substantial outbuilding, with accommodation above and to the rear, would be ideal as an annexe to the main cottage. It was granted outline planning consent on 1st May 2018 by Wrexham Council (application number P/2016/0668) for "Removal of garage and store. Erection of a new detached house together with a new garage to serve the existing cottage". Details of the application, plans and conditions are available on-line on Wrexham Council planning portal.

Outside, there are ornamental ponds and our clients estimate that they have spent a small fortune on a variety of flowers, bushes and shrubs.

Despite the postal address, it is actually located over the Welsh border, in the community of Hanmer (about 2 miles away), close to the border with Shropshire and Cheshire. Excellent road links provide swift travel by car to nearby Whitchurch (about 6 miles) and Wrexham (about 9 miles). Whitchurch has its own railway station and boasts excellent shopping and dining experiences, together with an array of leisure facilities including the renowned Hill Valley Hotel, Golf & Spa.
