About this property

  • Plas Wiggin is a charming Grade II Listed property in an exceptional position with open views to the Oswestry Hills and across rolling Shropshire countryside. The smallholding is believed to have ancient origins with the listing referring to a 14th/15th Century core and later remodelling and retains the character of the period.

    The house stands in a delightful private setting in beautiful gardens and with fine largely timber framed outbuildings flanking the approach to the house. The sweeping drive leads from a quite lane via a timber gated entrance and leads to a parking and turning area beside the garaging.

    A path leads to the front door, set beneath a porch, which opens into a hall with stairs to the first floor and a celling with moulded plaster detailing. The drawing room is set to the right and is an excellent room for entertaining with an open fireplace with York stone surround. A door leading to a study with fitted book shelves and a cupboard beneath.

    The sitting room is a spacious and relaxed room with a log burner which is open to the kitchen with a good range of oak fronted storage units with granite work surfaces, a Belfast sink, a 4 oven Aga, electric hob and oven, a dishwasher and under counter fridge. Off the kitchen is an oak framed garden room with under floor heating from which there are wonderful views across the adjoining landscape.

    Within the main structure of the house is an office accessed only from outside. A utility room, back hall and WC complete the ground floor accommodation.

    On the first floor is a landing which provides a pleasant sitting area, four bedrooms and three bathrooms (one en suite).

    The property has the benefit of a substantial and attractive L shape range of outbuildings offering garaging, a workshop, stabling as well as extensive storage. The buildings offer significant potential for adaptation and conversion for a variety of uses, subject to the gaining of the necessary consents.

    Beside the kitchen garden is a dog kennel, log store, a potting shed and a greenhouse.

    Gardens, grounds and land
    The well maintained gardens provide a beautiful setting for the house and incorporate a range of mature shrubs and plants, herbaceous borders and a charming kitchen garden with box edged beds.

    The grassland extends to the south and west of the house (the direction of the best views) and includes a pond, an orchard and several specimen trees. There is a separate access to the land from the lane.

    The property extends to about 5.46 acres.

Plas Wiggin is just a lovely property, in one of the prettiest locations in the area. I will be extremely jealous of whoever buys it!
