NO FORWARD CHAIN. ''The Square'' is a fine and elegant Grade II Listed property occupying a highly sought after central location within the conservation area of the village. The house is full of character with a wealth of exposed timbers and retaining original features. Accommodation arranged over 3 floors, with the benefit of gas fired central heating from a Rayburn within an inglenook of the kitchen. The property is largely constructed of stone with a handsome half timbered frontage beneath a slate roof. It has been sympathetically restored and extended to provide a desirable family home with adaptable accommodation and scope for further extension or potential development.

The charm and unique nature of ''The Square'' can only be fully appreciated on viewing. On the ground floor there are 2 reception rooms including a lounge with open fire and French doors leading out to the large rear garden. The dining hall has a magnificent brick inglenook with an oil fired stove. The live-in kitchen, which has a breakfast and seating area, has an inglenook for the Rayburn along with a multi fuel stove, which makes a particularly inviting space for everyday life and family gatherings. There is also a useful study room, utility and W.C., on the ground floor.

On the first floor are 3 bedrooms, one with en-suite facilities, together with a recently re-appointed family bathroom. On the second floor there is a further bedroom and separate W.C., with attic room offering further potential or useful storage. Considerable development potential is available in the large rear garden, for a separate residential unit for extended family members or for a building plot, subject to approval and the local authority consents being obtained. The beautiful lawn and mature gardens which are well screened and afford an excellent degree of privacy are well stocked with established trees and shrubs. There is a substantial stone and slate barn with an open fronted double garage, which has a first floor room above to suit various uses including self contained annex accommodation or a valuable home office (subject to compliance with the local authority consents).

Arguably one of the most iconic houses within the village, the property is well situated next to the church and within a convenient walking distance of a range of local amenities including the reputable primary school, convenience stores, doctor's surgery, public houses and eateries. There are a range of recreational and leisure clubs and activities in the village to suit a variety of interests and is on a service bus route to an independent school. The property is also within excellent commuter territory of Oswestry, Shrewsbury with private and state schools and the West Midlands. Welshpool has a mainline railway station on route from the Cambrain Coast to Birmingham New Street with connections to London readily available.

The market town of Welshpool is approximately 4 miles away hosting a range of traditional shops and national retail outlets, secondary schooling and public transport services with train station en-route from the Cambrian coast to New Street line.
