About this property

  • 15 The Wintles is an extremely attractive timber frame property with a slate roof and was built in 2012. The front of the house is mostly south facing and looks out over the village green. The Wintles has a feel of an Alpine village and really is very special, particularly with the backdrop of the Shropshire Hills.

    A covered porch opens into a hallway and you are immediately met with plenty of natural light, from the large glazed windows above. The open plan living area has a wonderful relaxed feel, with a wood burning stove and a separate sitting area, ideal for watching television or reading.

    The dining area has wonderful views over the garden and a fully glazed door which provides access outside. The kitchen is just off the dining area and has fully fitted units with granite
    worktops, a built in double oven, dishwasher and a gas hob. The utility room is just off the kitchen which also has a door opening to the side of the house and the car port.
