Ruyton XI Towns is a rural village with a history as fascinating and as long as its name, and with a population of just under 1,400 at the last census. Ideally situated, sitting roughly halfway between Oswestry and the county town of Shrewsbury, and just off the main route between these two significant Shropshire towns, this is a great place for a short commute; or slightly further afield, to Telford, Wolverhampton, Wrexham or Chester. There are some very well-respected schools close by, too, including the well-known Packwood Haugh private school. The village itself also has a primary school, local inn, a church and a garage. Whilst if it's countryside walks you are after, well you'll be spoilt for choice as this is a delightful part of Shropshire - one of England's most rural and sparsely populated counties. Just a couple of miles down the road is the larger village of Baschurch, which has a secondary school as well as other amenities.

The property itself is reassuringly elusive, meaning privacy is one of its best features, whilst still having easy access to the A5. The entrance to the driveway is tucked between two properties, making it very secluded and unique. The sense of history starts right from the get-go with the sandstone-lined driveway leading down to a fascinating feature wall. This used to be part of the original road. As well as being a child-friendly plot itself, the property borders a children's playground which can be reached from a gate in the garden, through the adjacent woods, or you could head down to the River Perry for direct-access dog walking.

parking for 6-8 cars, and the things you could do with the huge workshop! And the gardens! A lawn, a pond, a summer house, huge vegetable patch with greenhouse … there is so much you could do with this space, it could keep you happily busy for many years to come.

In brief - this property comprises of:

Porch, snug, lounge, dining room with adjoining kitchen, utility room, downstairs WC, 3 double bedrooms, one with en suite bathroom, 1 single bedroom, family bathroom, private rear gardens with summer house, separate workshop.

This home includes:
  • 01 - Front Garden

    The winding private drive leads you down past historical sandstone walls to a large, gravelled parking area for 6-8 cars to the side of the house. The garden extends to the right of the house, beyond a large detached workshop. Meanwhile, the front of the house itself is delightful, with a cream render uniting the left-hand part of the house which dates back to 1726 with the later additions on the right and the back.

  • 02 - Porch

    The front door features 2 glass panels in the upper half which, along with a window to the side aspect, helps to make the hall space remarkably bright. This is a great space for shoes and coats with a convenient mat to wipe your feet in winter.

  • 03 - Hallway

    Lovely engineered oak flooring, the stairs leading to the first floor, with space for storage beneath the stairs, and doors that lead to the snug, the living room and the kitchen-diner.

  • 04 - Snug

    3.68m x 3.57m (13.1 sqm) - 12' x 11' 8" (141 sqft)

    The snug is in the original part of the house, dating pack to the 17th century. The vendors have improved the insulation in the floor in this room and a log burner sits inside a brick fireplace beneath a beautiful wooden mantel, all helping to make it very snug. There is room for a corner sofa to curl up in front of the fire. Windows to both the front and rear aspect provide wonderful light, and certainly make this the place to snuggle up in the evening.

  • 05 - Lounge

    4.61m x 3.68m (16.9 sqm) - 15' 1" x 12' (182 sqft)

    The main sitting room is larger than the snug and has a wonderful view of the garden which extends to the side of the property. It is carpeted and has a second brick chimney, also with a beautiful wooden mantel, which holds a larger wood-burning stove. This room currently accommodates a large sofa, armchair, TV unit and large coffee table. There is a window to the front aspect and French windows lead onto the main patio at the top of the garden. Throw them open in the warmer months and let the countryside in.

    The dining room is adjoined to the kitchen with an open archway which works equally well for family life as it does for entertaining. This is a big room, currently housing a 4-seater dining table and chairs, along with a bookcase, children's dining table and chairs and even a sofa. Patio doors lead out to a patio to the side of the house and there is also a window to the rear. The engineered oak flooring continues from the hall and then flows through the archway into the kitchen area.

    4.63m x 3.61m (16.7 sqm) - 15' 2" x 11' 10" (179 sqft)

A large, double-width Rangemaster oven is set into an alcove and provides two ovens, a grill and 5 gas burners. The dishwasher is built in and a Belfast-style sink enjoys the view through the rear-facing window. Opposite this is a whole bank of built-in storage cupboards with a huge Fisher & Paykel fridge freezer as its centrepiece. A door leads to the utility room. This is a top-quality kitchen that cannot be faulted.

  • 08 - Utility Room

    2.27m x 2.25m (5.1 sqm) - 7' 5" x 7' 4" (55 sqft)

    Conveniently sited next to the kitchen, the utility room also mirrors the same quality and style as its neighboring room. The beautiful marble-topped wooden doors continue, and another Belfast sink sits beneath the side-facing window. The only change is a practical move, from the delightful wooden floor of the kitchen to an equally delightful, tiled floor in the utility room. This is a great move for a highly practical room, with a back door to the garden providing stress-free access for muddy shoes and boots.

  • 09 - WC

    2.27m x 0.9m (2 sqm) - 7' 5" x 2' 11" (22 sqft)

    A door in the utility room leads into a downstairs WC which houses a white low-level WC and white hand basin with tiled splashback above and storage beneath.

Again, perfect for access from the garden.

It comfortably homes a large double bed, blanket box and computer desk, with space for a wardrobe. As well as a shower, the en suite has a white WC and hand basin, underfloor heating and a window to the front aspect.

Once again it has dual aspect (side and rear) windows, and the carpet continues. A huge, four-doored Sharps wardrobe is built into one corner, leaving plenty of room for a large double bed, as well as a chest-of-drawers, bedside cabinets, and a blanket box.

  • 15 - Bedroom 4

    3.36m x 2.24m (7.5 sqm) - 11' x 7' 4" (81 sqft)

    Currently set up as a nursery, bedroom 4 also enjoys views of the garden from its wide window and has previously been used as a home office. That would be a great view from your desk! It is a very good size for a single bedroom, as indicated by the triple wardrobe it currently accommodates. The carpet continues from the landing.

  • 16 - Family Bathroom

    2.59m x 2.37m (6.1 sqm) - 8' 5" x 7' 9" (66 sqft)

    The family bathroom is just as well presented as you have come to expect by this point, with everything finished to a high standard. The bath extends across the front-facing privacy window and is bestowed with traditional taps and a hand-held shower head. A corner shower unit on the opposite side offers an alternative option for a shower. The bath, WC and hand basin are all white and the marble-effect tiles on the floor and around the bath, the shower and sink give an air of opulence not often found in a family bathroom.

  • 17 - Grounds

Part of the original road is now incorporated into the boundary wall, with old stone steps leading to the boundary. Beyond this, the vendors have lifted the area directly to the right of the house, to create a wonderful, raised patio, with the lounge patio doors leading straight onto it. This is a wonderful sitting, dining and entertaining area, with steps leading down to the lawn. Gardens -The lawn is edged with borders featuring shrubbery, trees and flower beds. A gate in the left-hand fence gives access to the woods and play park on the other side. A path leads to a second garden area containing a pond which is fenced off for safety. Above the pond sits a decking area and a corner summer house which is open on two sides allowing you to survey your property from a more relaxing angle. Beyond this, a gravel path leads to a large allotment area, complete with greenhouse and vegetable beds, just waiting for some seeds and a gardener.

  • 18 - Workshop

    14.01m x 6.5m (91 sqm) - 45' 11" x 21' 3" (980 sqft)

    The workshop/garage is detached from the house and sits alongside the lawn. It is very substantial in size and structure and contains a pit for working on vehicles.
