Located on the very edge of the popular village of Bucknell which lies amidst the scenic Shropshire countryside close to the English/Welsh border, No.27 Redlake Meadow is a superb, well maintained, detached bungalow found towards the head of a modern cul-de-sac.

Built in 1997 as part of an attractive development of similarly designed and sized properties, No.27 Redlake Meadow is available to purchase with no upward chain and offers spacious accommodation made up of 3 bedrooms, 2 reception rooms and 2 bathrooms. Outside, the dwelling presents off road parking over a driveway for 2 vehicles, which leads to an integral double garage, a lawned front garden and a good-sized, south-facing, private rear garden, which offers distant views towards the encompassing hills and woodland.

The property occupies a peaceful village position, worlds apart from the hustle and bustle of city living, but is conveniently situated less than 0.25 of a mile from the village amenities including a shop, primary school, pub, butchers and train station which services four trains a day in each direction from Monday to Saturday on the Heart of Wales Railway Line that runs between Shrewsbury and Swansea and two services on a Sunday. Just outside Bucknell in the nearby hamlet of Bedstone is the highly-regarded, private school of Bedstone College. Rural, but by no means isolated Bucknell is centrally located just 6 miles from the border town of Knighton, 9 miles from the market town of Craven Arms and 4 miles from the much larger village of Leintwardine. Slightly further afield lies historic Ludlow Town, which is 11 miles to the east.

The Property

Approached over the tarmacadam driveway, a paved path then leads to the front entrance door. Inside a hallway has separate doors leading off to the majority of rooms throughout the bungalow. The first door on the left leads into bedroom two, which offers a bay window overlooking the front garden, while the first door on the right opens into the integral garage. Moving up the hallway 2 further doors on the right hand side open into 2 useful storage cupboards, while on the left 2 separate doors lead into bedroom three and the bathroom, which is installed with a matching suite of w.C, wash hand basin and a panelled bath with a shower connection and a fitted glazed shower screen. The bathroom is complete with tiled walls, a chrome heated towel radiator and a window to the side. Back into the hall, the next 2 doors on the right hand side open into bedroom one and a further storage cupboard. Bedroom one has ample space for a double bed and additional furnishings, a window to the side and a further door from the room, which leads into the private en-suite shower room, which is installed with a w.C, wash hand basin and fitted shower unit with a glazed shower screen/door. The final 2 doors at the end of the hallway lead left into the living room and right into the kitchen diner. The living room has ample space for a three-piece-suite, a focal point in the shape of a woodburning stove on top of a marble effect mantel and is a light and airy room owing to 2 windows to the rear and glazed double doors opening into the conservatory. The kitchen diner like most properties is the hub of the bungalow and is installed with an attractive range of wall and base cupboards with fitted worktops over and an inset sink unit. Integrated appliances include an electric oven and 4 ring hob with extractor unit above, while there is also space and plumbing for a washing machine and a free-standing fridge/freezer. The kitchen is finished with part tiled walls, space for a set of dining table and chairs and a window overlooking the rear garden. A door from the kitchen diner leads into the final room of the property, the conservatory, which is an ideal room to sit back and relax in while enjoying the pleasant outlook over the rear garden. This south facing conservatory has sufficient room for a seating suite and furnishings and has double doors leading back into the living and French doors leading outside the patio area/garden.


The front is quite evenly split between a lawned garden and a tarmacadam drive, which allows off road parking for a couple of vehicles and leads to the integral double garage. The garden area to the front is also stocked with a variety of shrubs, small trees and a flower bed. To either side of the bungalow are secure wooden gates, which open and have paved pathways which lead out to the rear garden.

The south-facing, rear garden is largely laid to lawn and has well-defined fenced boundaries accompanied with hedged and planted borders and a mixture of small trees and shrubs. Towards the back of the garden sees the oil tank and adjoining the bungalow is a paved patio area, which poses as an ideal spot to relax/entertain on with the warmer months of the year, whilst enjoying the distant views towards the surrounding hills and woodland.
