Ivy Cottage sits in the idyllic Shropshire hamlet of Dovaston, a pretty area situated near the
village of Kinnerley which has a church, community hall, village shop and post office, junior
school and pub/restaurant.

The property is located just off a quiet lane and surrounded by mature trees, shrubs and
hedgerows, offering a lot of privacy.
The building itself is believed to date back to the early Georgian period and comes with
many original features and much history.
This stunning two-storey, three-bedroom home oozes a lot of character and charm, from
the original wooden floorboards and internal doors to the stunning period bread oven and
exposed beams.

The accommodation comprises a large reception room with an impressive exposed brick
inglenook fireplace and woodburning stove.

Behind this generous reception room is a fitted kitchen and access to a utility room, which
also houses a WC. A stable door has direct access to the garden.

Another good size reception room, currently a sitting room, is to the right front aspect of
the home, with an open fireplace, original built-in bread oven and access to the second
staircase.

Adjacent is a cosy dining room with an original cast iron range, a further room, currently a
workshop/studio and, adjoining, a shower room, WC, and a lobby with access to the garden.
The first floor has three good size bedrooms and a modern fitted bathroom. The main
bedroom, above the 'inglenook' room, has a vaulted ceiling and an original elm floor. The
other two bedrooms have period open fireplaces.

Ivy Cottage sits on a plot of roughly 0.25 acres. It is surrounded by landscaped gardens. To
the rear there is a lawned area with fruit trees, including apple, plum, mulberry and medlar.
There are two pedestrian access gates and a shingled driveway, with parking for one
vehicle.

The local countryside is extremely scenic with delightful walks, equestrian and other country
pursuits all being available. The surrounding area also encompasses an excellent range of
state and independent schools.
Dovaston is just a short drive to Shrewsbury (12.2 miles), Shropshire's county town, and the
market town of Oswestry (8.5 miles approx.) They both boast a wide range of independent
shops and eateries, theatres, and heritage and arts venues.
