Owners Comments - "The views from this house are just gorgeous," say the current owners of this stunning detached town property overlooking farmland. "Being on the edge of town, we can see fields on one side and the spires of medieval Shrewsbury on the other. As soon as we walked in and saw those views, we could see the potential to make this house our home so that we could enjoy these vistas every day."
Since moving in, much love and care has gone into modernising the house itself. "We have refurbished both inside and out," say the owners, "with everything being finished to the highest of standards and exquisitely presented to create light, airy living spaces. We even completely re-rendered the outside of the house so that the faade of the extension is in keeping with that of the original building. In addition, we have laid a new driveway, decking and fencing in the grounds of the property."
The living accommodation is well suited to everyday life and entertaining alike. "The front lounge is quiet and calm, catching the morning sun," say the owners, "so we often sit and have coffee in there at weekends. The sun moves around to the kitchen by the afternoon, streaming in through the windows with their fantastic views of open countryside. The crops in the fields change with each cycle - at the moment they are full of potato plants - so we get a variation in the colours and blooms. We often see foxes and rabbits too, as well as birds of prey sweeping over the farmland in search of field mice!"
"The location is fantastic," say the owners, "offering the best of both worlds as we can walk into the centre of the County Town of Shrewsbury in 20 minutes but when we're at home have the feeling of being in the middle of the countryside. Set on the River Severn, with beautiful parks and plenty of events and amenities, this medieval market town is a lovely place to live."
What they will miss most
"We will miss the spectacular views, the superb location between town and country and the amazing sunsets."
"The kitchen has the best views and gets the afternoon sun, so is where we spend much of our time."
"The property is brilliant for entertaining, with plenty of space for guests to mingle. We have even had 16 people here for Christmas some years!"
Best thing about the grounds/local area
"With its lawn and low maintenance borders, the garden allows us time to simply sit out on the decking and enjoy the stunning views of the fields beyond."
