VIDEO AVAILABLE ON REQUEST - As the song goes "If you go down in the wood today, you're sure of a big surprise..." In this case, a very big surprise! Nestled in a clearing of dense woodland is "Barkers", a spacious 5 bedroom detached bungalow with 3 reception rooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 shower rooms and a large kitchen. Undoubtedly, it could easily accommodate 2 generations living under one roof, although it is in need of modernisation and improvement in order to realise its full potential. However, this is not the entire picture….. Also included is a large garage, suitable for several vehicles, along with various dilapidated wartime huts and outbuildings (including a brick-built air raid shelter) plus hardstanding for further vehicles. The mature (and largely level), substantial grounds, although somewhat overgrown, are crying out for a new owner to restore them to their original former glory. Ironically, although shielded by woodland, the bungalow is not isolated. There are some neighbouring properties in the woods and numerous properties in Higher Heath on the other side of the nearby A41 trunk road. It sits just 5 miles outside the market town of Whitchurch which has a wide range of amenities including shops, banks, supermarkets and a number of great pubs and restaurants. It is also well placed for fast access to larger conurbations including Shrewsbury, Chester, Wolverhampton and Wrexham. The area of the plot according to Land Registry plans is 1.093 hectares or 2.7 acres
