Owners Comments - "Our initial attraction to Cound Park was the location," say the current owners of Pelham House. "Cound is a wonderful village in the heart of the Shropshire countryside, yet only a few minutes from the centre of Shrewsbury. The pretty walled garden gave us privacy, and Pelham House offered us a spacious, modern home that we were able to create specifically to meet our family's needs."

"The quality of the build, finish and space was exceptional," continue the owners. "Moreover, we submitted planning permission to convert the second floor on the day we moved in. Thus the two additional bedrooms and bathroom were created, offering a great addition to our home. The private walled garden was also fully renovated when we bought the house, leaving many of its old features and bringing it back to its former glory, with a beautiful display of David Austin roses filling the garden and climbing all over the wall."

The house itself is ideal for everyday life and entertaining alike. "The integrated speakers in each room allow us to play different music in each area of the house," say the owners, "which is wonderful when entertaining family and friends. The house flows perfectly, and even with guests staying, you never feel crowded. It's a perfect family home, and we shall miss it greatly."

"Pelham House offers so much more than its accommodation," continue the owners. "As well as being within the sought after SY5 area, you are on the doorstep of the most amazing countryside, woodland and waterways. We often walk and cycle for miles and rarely see a soul. If you are a keen tennis player, the Tennis Club is in the heart of the village and offers its facilities to all ages and abilities. There are many local attractions on the doorstep too, including Much Wenlock, Ironbridge and Church Stretton Hills. Nearby Shrewsbury is a wonderful Medieval town with lots of history. Still, it is also known for its many beautiful restaurants and shops and of course the fabulous schools which all children within Cound Park attend, for example, Concorde College, Shrewsbury School, Moreton Hall, and Prestfelde Preparatory School."

"The garden is a wonderful space, and we love being out there. It is very private and south facing, enjoying the sun well into the evening. The whole of the back of the house opens up into the garden, so it always feels like colour and bird song just float inside on those sunny days, making the house so bright and joyful."

"We raised our four children in this home, and we now love having them and their partners back home for special occasions."

"We feel honoured to live in Cound Park Gardens and will really miss the neighbours, we have never lived anywhere quite like it. Everyone is so kind, caring and great company, fun to be around and always there if you need them."

"I commuted to London 2-3 days a week for work, the rest of the time working from home. Pelham House was perfect in allowing me to do this with ease, providing a peaceful setting for work, leisure and everyday life."

SERVICES - The property has mains water, electricity and drainage, oil fired and a biomass heating.
