An attractive timber frame home set on a sizeable plot at the heart of a sought after village.

Orchard Court was built in 1992 and is a timber framed house that offers the appearance and charm of a period dwelling with all the modern conveniences one would associate with a new build. It is beautifully situated being within walking distance of all the village has to offer and yet sitting entirely privately in its plot, adjoining farmland to the rear with some superb views. Whilst cleverly recreating, respecting and acknowledging the vernacular tradition and history, the property embraces the appropriate technology of the 21st Century. The main reception rooms flank the front door, placed either side of the entrance hall. The sitting room has oak floorboards and a most attractive fireplace with oak panelling above and herringbone design brickwork to the rear which houses a wood burning stove. The ‘period’ feel of the property flows throughout and is never more apparent than in the dining room with its generous proportions, wall and ceiling timbers and handcrafted windows. The kitchen/ breakfast room offers a good range of base and wall mounted units and integrated appliances include a double oven and hob.

Further storage space is afforded by the utility room which has a small boot room off opening to the rear garden. There is also a cloakroom as well as useful under stairs storage A solid oak staircase rises to the first floor where, off alight and spacious landing, is the master bedroom with awonderful vaulted ceiling showcasing the oak frame. This bedroom enjoys breathtaking views over some of the most wonderful countryside Shropshire has to offer and benefits from ensuite facilities. There are a further three spacious bedrooms which share a family bathroom and all offers views either of the garden or beyond to open countryside.

This property has 0.8 acres of land.


Approached up a gravel driveway bordered by island beds and herbaceous borders, Orchard Court complements, enhances and reflects the immediate landscape of the location. The gardens surround the property, are most attractive and largely laid to lawn with a pleasing mix of mature trees, shrubs and riverside walks bordered to one side by the Redlake River which runs through the village. At the bottom of the garden there is the large garage with a wood burning stove which provides a large workshop & artist studio area. Also within the garden are a cedar summer house, a Gabriel Ash cedar greenhouse, oak framed wood store and various other stores and sheds.


Orchard House is located within the heart of the very popular and sought-after village of Bucknell, enjoying an incredibly private location and adjoining farmland to the rear. Bucknell has services that include a village shop, a butcher’s shop, post office, two garages, two public houses and a primary school. There is small station in the village with trains running directly to Shrewsbury and from there on to Manchester, Birmingham and London.
