I don’t think the images for this 1970s Arethusa four-bedroom property in Oswestry, Shropshire do the place justice. It could be quite a period find.
The first two images are the ones that got our interest up, along with the words of the agent, who described it as a ‘unique’ early 1970s design over two floors and using three hexagons. There’s a hint of that in the living room shot, but the rest of the images don’t really show it off. Might be one to go view if you are in the area.
Aside from that, we’re simply left with the details of the layout. According to that, Arethusa offers a ground floor with an entrance lobby, dining room, conservatory and kitchen with ‘spectacular views’ of Chirk Castle, along with a master bedroom with walk-in wardrobe and en-suite three further bedrooms and a family bathroom. The kitchen, dining room and hall all have underfloor heating under the slate flooring.
On the first floor there is what’s described as a unique sitting room which is one of the three hexagons, with a picture window for panoramic views towards Chirk Castle and the Ceiriog Valley. On the lower ground floor there is an integral double garage with a WC and utility room.
The last bit of the listing is priceless and really does give away the original era of the house. The gardens were originally designed by the legendary Percy Thrower. Oh yes. They cover around three quarters of an acre, with a paddock below the house which is about an acre, containing some fruit trees.
All of that for £385,000.
