Owners Comments - "We had been looking at properties for a while before we found our perfect home and when we saw Cobden House, we just knew we had to have it. We loved the large garden and the location as it feels like we're in the middle of the countryside, yet we're only a short drive away from everything we need. We were also excited by the potential to develop Cobden House into a home that would be just right for us," recall the current owners.

"The most significant changes have taken place downstairs with the addition of what we call the orangery/family and kitchen area. Bifold doors lead to the garden which brings the outdoors inside, regardless of the weather, and it does provide a real 'feelgood' factor. It's a very sociable space that is perfect for watching tv, doing homework, eating, cooking and entertaining."
"The location is perfect. The road and rail links are great, which was ideal when my husband commuted to London and it's just a short drive into the centre of Shrewsbury which has all of the amenities we require. It's not your typical high street as it's full of independent stores, coffee shops and restaurants, as well as interesting little alleyways leading to all kinds of quirky shops. The market hall is fabulous, and is a great place to shop for meat, fish, fruit and vegetables."

"The gardens and grounds are very versatile with a formal area and lovely lawn outside of the orangery and a more informal area to the side where my son played football, cricket and rugby with his friends. It's a great space for children to grow up and explore nature. We see all kinds of wildlife, including frogs in the pond, squirrels and a huge variety of birds, so there's always something of interest to look at. We also enjoy hopping over the style at the bottom of the garden to the public footpath that leads through the fields, past the carpet of wild garlic and bluebells and on to the welcoming pub for a drink."

"Living here in Cobden House has given us the best of both worlds as we can relax in the peace and tranquillity of the countryside, yet everything we need is easily accessible," conclude the current owners.
