The Property

Tucked away in an exclusive development on the edge of the popular village of Harmer Hill you will find 12 The Pines. Built in 2012 by respected local developer Shingler Homes, The Pines is a small, high quality development which has what we can only describe as a 'Scandinavian feel', and given that the Danes are regularly voted the happiest nation on earth this can only be a good thing. Set against the back drop of a picturesque wooded area, which gives the development its name, the timber clad homes project a Nordic vibe and warmth which feels extremely welcoming.

Number 12 is a semi detached property which has the benefit of private off road parking provided by a brick paved driveway adjacent. A paved pathway leads you across the small front garden to the entrance door. As you enter this home you get an immediate sense of the quality which is to follow, oak flooring leads the way to the oak internal doors which open to the ample accommodation. To your right you will find the kitchen diner, a stunning room with a full height windows to the front allowing natural light to flood in. A contemporary fitted kitchen with wonderful granite worktops steals the show, this is a room you will be proud to show off to your friends and family when you're entertaining in your new home. It has all of the modern appliances you would hope for such as an integrated fridge freezer, a dishwasher and an electric oven with a gas hob, to keep some of the more mundane household chores seperate you can cross the hall to utility room where you will find provision for a washing machine and tumble dryer. The utility is also home to a fitted storage cupboard and the downstairs cloakroom. Looking out to the rear garden you will find the living room, on a cold winter's day you may wish to light the log burner and get cosy around the fire, with Summer fast approaching however, you might be more likely to throw open the French doors and head outside for a barbecue.

On the first floor you will find the landing which has two light tunnels ensuring it is bright and airy, there is also a fitted cupboard providing valuable storage space. The property has three bedrooms, two to the front of the property and one to the rear. The two larger rooms to the front both have the benefit of of built-in double wardrobes, with the principle room also having full height windows, which are a great feature, and access to the loft space for yet more storage.

Completing the internal accommodation is the bathroom which is smartly appointed with a clean white suite comprising a P-shaped bath with a mains shower over, a wash basin inset into a vanity unit and a wc, this is all complemented with a stylish tiled finish.

Outside the property sits on a generous plot, as previously mentioned there is a brick paved driveway which provides ample parking and a small lawned fore-garden. The rear garden is secure and private and has well fenced boundaries and a wooden potting shed. A chorus of bird song can be heard from the surrounding woodland as you look over the level lawn, while a paved patio provides a nice seating area from which to relax and enjoy your tranquil surroundings.

The Village

Located to the south of Wem and North of Shrewsbury, Harmer Hill is a desirable village located in the beautiful Shropshire countryside. Harmer comes from two words, hare and mere, going back many moons to when there used to be a lake at the bottom of the hill. Long since drained away.

Harmer Hill has two popular pubs, The Bridgewater Arms and The Red Castle, so you wont be far away from a drink or a Sunday roast. There is also a small chapel and a village hall available for hire. If you ever have friends or family to visit there is the added convenience of Harmer Hill having a Premier Inn, or perhaps if you are looking for a little more luxury, just 2 miles away you have the Albrighton Hussey Hotel and Spa for a day, night or even weekend of pampering!

Although Harmer Hill does not have a school itself, you are surrounded by many villages and small towns including, Myddle (2.2 miles away), Clive (2.4 miles away), Hadnall (3.4 miles away), Bomere Heath (2.3 miles away), Baschurch (6 miles away) and Wem (4.5 miles away). All of which offer primary schools and with Baschurch and Wem also having secondary School, both with excellent reputations. Then of course you are less than 7 miles from the centre of Shrewsbury itself and all the amazing amenities it too has to offer.

If you are interested in the paranormal aspects of life, Harmer Hill is reported to have a many spooky goings on including a few ghosts, one of which is the White Lady. Perhaps you could get chatting to the locals and hear all about its history!

The Towns

The quintessential market town of Wem is located in the North of Shropshire and situated 12 miles north of the country town of Shrewsbury. Once a Saxon settlement Wem is full of charm, character and heritage and offers locals and visitors to the town a nostalgic throw back to a slower more relaxed way of life. Through the ages Wem has provided a centre for local trade and this tradition continues today. The High Street is home to many different independent shops, high street chains and local businesses and the weekly market takes place every Thursday in the Town Hall. With a thriving friendly local community Wem is jam-packed full of different social organisations and events throughout the year including WI, church and youth groups and a young farmers club just to name a few, as well as the celebrated annual carnival which the town hosts every summer. Wem offers a variety of dining establishments, hotels and public houses and has useful transport links via road and rail. The town benefits from having a well-supported Railway Station with regular main line trains to Shrewsbury and Crewe throughout the day as well as an extensive network of bus routes in and around the town and the surrounding area. Educationally the town is home to the well regarded St Peters Primary School and Thomas Adams High School and Sixth Form College. Recreationally Wem has a good selection of sporting facilities including a leisure centre, swimming pool, football club, cricket club, hockey club and bowls club to name a selection. There is also a gymnasium, thriving running scene and the popular Hawkstone Park Golf Club within the area.

Shrewsbury, the birth place of Charles Darwin, is a vibrant and lively town with a very cosmopolitan yet traditional atmosphere. The towns 660 listed buildings are complimented by a host of trendy and sophisticated bars and restaurants, the medieval streets do however still retain many classic public houses and dining establishments. Built on the River Severn the town hosts the annual Shrewsbury Flower Show which is one of the largest and oldest horticultural shows in the country attracting over 100,000 visitors. Home to 4 shopping centres, 2 significant retail parks and countless independent retailers the town is an excellent place to enjoy some retail therapy. If you prefer to spend your time soaking up a little more culture the Theatre Severn provides many varied productions and entertainment, or perhaps a visit to the Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery or Shrewsbury Castle would be more fitting. Other places of note are The Quarry a 29 acre riverside park, the largely unchanged Medieval Market place, Shrewsbury Abbey, the 9 bridges crossing the river Severn most notably the English and Welsh bridges, the Lord Hills Column the largest free-standing Doric column in the world and the Shropshire Agricultural Showground which hosts one of the countys most important agricultural shows.
