Property This stunningly handsome Victorian residence is radiant in both grandeur and elegance. Standing within impressive grounds which include a magnificent Copper beech tree and a double lawn frontage this really is a show stopper of a home which is waiting for its next lucky owner! On entry to the property you will be greeted with a large and welcoming entrance hallway which boasts a beautiful Minton tiled floor and elaborate staircase up to the first floor. Continuing along from the hallway you will find a lounge, sitting room, study, cloakroom/wc, door and steps to the cellar and a contemporary fitted kitchen. A door from here leads into a corridor that provides access to the front and rear and the double garage. Returning back to the hallway and onto the next floor there are three double bedrooms, main bathroom, separate wc and a small room which, subject to planning approval, could be converted into an en-suite to serve one of the bedrooms.

Externally there are two brick outbuildings and a large gravelled driveway with turning space. Not forgetting the added bonus of having no upward chain, please do not hesitate to call to arrange a viewing and we will be delighted to show you around this truly wonderful period property.
Location Market Drayton is a popular North Shropshire market town on the Staffordshire/Cheshire borders. It is on the River Tern, between Shrewsbury and Stoke on Trent and was formerly known as Drayton in Hales and is listed in the Domesday Book. In 1245 King Henry III granted a charter for the weekly Wednesday market, giving the town its current title. The market is still held every Wednesday. The Shropshire Union Canal runs through the town and Market Drayton offers a wide variety of amenities such as schools, specialist and high street shops, supermarkets and health and leisure facilities. The larger centres of Newcastle under Lyme, The Potteries, Crewe, Stafford, Telford and Shrewsbury are within commutable distance.
