Lacon Street, Prees Wood


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
Choose to live here and you could be on the “crest” of a wave, but if you lose out you could just as easily be “crest” fallen!

You see, when you view "The Crest", you actually get a 'double whammy'; two properties for the price of one....... Not only do you get an imposing three bedroom family home, but there is also within the grounds, a large part converted two storey garage building that has planning granted for conversion to a second residential home.

The gardens that they both sit in are around an acre and could easily be divided, leaving each unit with around half an acre, if required. It is highly likely that the existing set up will appeal to families of two generations, allowing each to independently occupy their own space and maintain privacy, whilst being able to keep a watchful eye out for each other.

The hamlet of Prees Wood lies a short distance from Prees village and the property enjoys views over rolling Shropshire countryside, so if you feel the need to escape the 'rat race' then this could be the ideal opportunity! The village of Prees is well served by shops, post office, doctor, hairdresser, village hall, railway station and a primary school. There is a club house within the recreational ground, which also incorporates a bowling club, along with cricket pitch and football fields. It is conveniently placed for travel by car into nearby Whitchurch, Wem, Market Drayton and Shrewsbury.
