Hengoed, Oswestry


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 5
A most individual detached country property set within large gardens extending to circa one acre in the sought after rural community of Hengoed near Oswestry. Laurel House is believed to have been constructed in the late 1840's or early 1850's and provides most comfortably appointed living accommodation throughout. The property retains a number of characterful features which compliment the more modern parts of the property such as the spacious family room opening into the garden room. The near one acre of gardens and grounds are a most notable feature and these have been well tended to by the current owners to provide a perfect environment in which to enjoy the rural surroundings. Early inspection is highly recommended by the sole selling agent.

General Remarks

Bowen Son and Watson with Kent Jones are delighted with instructions to offer Laurel House on City Lane in Hengoed for sale by private treaty. This beautifully proportioned country property sits handsomely within its grounds and includes views of the surrounding countryside. There is also a useful outbuilding which subject to planning could provide for an annex, holiday accommodation or a home office. There is ample off road parking provision and a detached double garage while the property itself is warmed by an oil fired central heating system.
