About the property

In the pretty Shropshire village of Marchamley sits Bay Tree Cottage, a delightful four bedroom detached, chocolate box thatched cottage, with wonderful views over the picturesque Shropshire and Cheshire plains. Originally several small cottages, dating from the 17th Century, this property oozes history and charm. With exposed beams, open fires, ledger-and-brace doors through the house (which have been recently stripped and re-finished) handmade for the cottage, a charming open plan kitchen/breakfast area, formal dining room, sitting room, study, morning room, four good size bedrooms and three bathrooms, this charming home flows with character and elegance. The property has the additional benefits of a boiler room and a summer cabin, a great place to sit and catch the evening sun. The quirky thatched detached double garage has recently been used as an office for up to 4 people and would lend itself to multiple uses.

The property is situated 16 miles from the County town of Shrewsbury and 9 miles from Whitchurch - both with their excellent range of facilities including a wonderful selection of independent shops, a plethora of fantastic eateries and bars to the much-sought after state and independent schools, train stations, excellent Public Houses with other local facilities including a Doctor's Surgery, Florist and DIY stores. The nearby village of Hodnet has a village shop, church and public house. The local countryside is very scenic, with delightful country walks, equestrian and other country pursuits all being available nearby.

The farmland adjacent to the garden is part of the original Hawkestone Estate: we understand it is still Grade 1 listed along with the Hall and its remaining lands.

The property can be entered via the front or the side, therefore it has two entrance doors, two hallways and two set of stairs, all of which add to the property's quirky charm. Entrance via wooden side door with handy porch area, leading through into SIDE HALLWAY; this charming space has wooden flooring flowing into quarry tile flooring, the first wooden staircase with under stairs storage, fitted book shelves, a cottage style window overlooking front garden and a small LAUND...
