The property
17 St Johns Hill is a delightful historic town house situated in a prime residential area of Shrewsbury. Grade II listed, the house is primarily 17th century when it was the hall and cross wing of the neighbouring house, however the property is believed to have much earlier origins dating back to the 15th century and has then been re fashioned and adapted over the centuries with Georgian and Edwardian alterations. It retains considerable period detail and character with its light and attractive family accommodation set over three floors.

The front door opens to a pretty tiled hallway, with a wide oak staircase and door opening to the garden beyond. The dining room has a moulded ceiling, deep sash window, classical fireplace with marble slips and double doors opening to the elegant drawing room, also with a feature fireplace and wide windows with views over the pretty garden to the rear. Across the hall is a cosy study and traditionally fitted utility and kitchen, off which leads a conservatory and French doors opening to the paved terrace. A cloakroom with W.C. Completes the downstairs accommodation.

To the first floor are three double bedrooms, two with their original fireplaces, served by a family bathroom and a separate W.C. Off the second floor landing there are two further bedrooms, one with an en suite bathroom, and a separate W.C.

A much loved family home for several decades, 17 St Johns Hill does require a level of updating, but rarely is a house found which retains such integrity and charm which also benefits from a beautiful south facing garden.

17 St. Johns Hill is situated within the much coveted “Loop” of the River Severn close to the excellent amenities within Shrewsbury town centre, including bespoke shops and restaurants nearby. The house enjoys access to quiet walks along the riverbank and to the beautiful Quarry Park.

Shrewsbury is noted for its excellent schools both within the state and private sectors. These include the prestigious Shrewsbury School, while both St Winifred’s Convent and Shrewsbury High School are just along the road.

Road communications are excellent with the A5 M54 linking through to Telford, the West Midlands and the national motorway network beyond. There is a train station in Shrewsbury with a regular service to the Midlands and London. International airports are available at Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool and East Midlands.

17 St Johns Hill has a wonderful walled south facing garden to the rear. Steps lead up from a paved terrace and sheltered seating area to a central lawn. Around it are borders stocked for all year round colour and interest and mature fruit trees including quince, pear and apple.
