Properties in the Cherry Orchard area don't hang around at the best of times, but this one is an absolute corker. One of the best presented houses we have seen in this area, in which many of the Victorian features have been restored. Three cast-iron fireplaces, two rooms with restored wooden flooring, and the practical storage which has been built in has been designed sympathetically with the age of the property, to match the Victorian era. Tiles have been replaced in the hallway to match the type that would have been there originally, and feature tiles have been used to restore the hearths in the downstairs rooms. The windows at the front of the property have been fitted with gorgeous double hung shutters, which not only add character to the house, but also offer shade on a sunny day.

The bathroom has been partly refurbished with fresh new tiling, yet the period feel has been lovingly retained. The approach in the kitchen has been similar with a beautiful stone tiled floor and range cooker setting the tone in what is ultimately a modern kitchen with a character feel.

This really is a stunning property which has been given a lot of love and attention in recent times. The level of the finish and the detail is outstanding, and just waiting for you to enjoy it.

You can have all this, and unbelievably be just a 20-minute walk from the centre of Shrewsbury, close to the River Severn and close to the restaurants and bars in the cosmopolitan area of Abbey Foregate. If you get a wriggle on, you could be there just time for summer.

In brief - this property comprises of:

Hallway, living room, dining room, kitchen, master bedroom, further double bedroom, single bedroom, family bathroom, private rear garden with outbuilding and shed.

This property includes:
  • Front Garden

    The property is set back from the road with a low brick wall and a hedge to the front offering privacy. The period features grab you right from the start with a cast-iron gate that takes you onto a stylish tiled path leading to the front door. The area to the side of the path is low-maintenance with a stone surface and a second path leads to the rear garden gate.

  • Entrance Hall

    A plum-coloured, glass-panelled front door leads into a hallway. Straightaway we see evidence of the restoration work which has been carried out with a lovely new tiled floor, in a style that is in keeping with the Victorian heritage of this property. Stairs lead off the hallway to the upstairs and original doors provide access to the living room and dining room.

  • Lounge

    3.8m x 3.4m (12.9 sqm) - 12' 5" x 11' 1" (139 sqft)

    The wall between the living room and dining room has been opened up to create a lovely bright room. The current vendors have cleverly positioned one of their two sofas to clearly define the two areas, but of course, you can use it as one long room if you prefer. The large bay window to the front has been fitted with double hung shutters, adding character and style whilst also offering privacy and a useful sunscreen. The hearth has been restored and tiled with character tiles that perfectly suit the cosy log burner. Built-in character cupboards and shelving provide stylish storage.

  • Dining Room

    3.6m x 3.4m (12.2 sqm) - 11' 9" x 11' 1" (131 sqft)

    The beautifully restored floorboards run from the lounge through to the dining room which offers ample space for a large farmhouse-style table with seating for 6 and a sideboard. In-built storage is also provided with another character cupboard and shelving which has been added to the left-hand alcove. The fireplace in this room has also been restored and more period tiles fitted. A window to the rear overlooks the back garden and there is still space for a light, quiet reading corner. A long, white radiator hangs on the wall opposite the fireplace, and a door leads through to the kitchen.

  • Kitchen

    3.7m x 2.8m (10.3 sqm) - 12' 1" x 9' 2" (111 sqft)

    Gorgeous stone tiles cover the floor giving a character feel to what is essentially a contemporary kitchen. Green wall tiles, ample storage and plenty of workspace, with underlighting, make it every cook's dream. Window to the side aspect behind a lovely white ceramic 1½ sink and drainer. A washing machine, dryer and dishwasher have been subtly builtin, so the visual focus is on the stunning range cooker which incorporates a 5-ring hob, black splashback and black extractor hood. Also, room for a large fridge-freezer and a rustic door provides access to a pantry under the stairs.

  • Landing

    Carpeted stairs lead straight upstairs before splitting at the top to serve two landing spaces. The floorboards of the rear landing are beautiful and lead to the family bathroom and bedroom 3. The carpeted front landing provides access to the master bedroom and bedroom 2.

  • Master Bedroom

    4.4m x 3.3m (14.5 sqm) - 14' 5" x 10' 9" (156 sqft)

    The master bedroom is at the front; a huge room that expands across the whole width of the house. Sunlight streams in through two windows which sport the same double-hung shutters that feature in the lounge. This room currently houses a super king-size bed, bedside tables and a blanket box, and yet still feels spacious. It is carpeted and has double wardrobes built into the alcoves on either side of the fireplace. Yes, that's another feature cast iron fireplace, in the bedroom! Further storage is provided in a cupboard above the stairs which also provides access to the loft.

  • Bedroom 2

    3.7m x 2.7m (9.9 sqm) - 12' 1" x 8' 10" (107 sqft)

    The landing carpet also flows into bedroom 2 which is a lovely double at the rear of the house. This room features yet another fireplace which has also been lovingly restored by the vendors. There is space for a double bed with bedside tables, and either a wardrobe or study/work area which is proving useful in current times. A window to the rear of the property overlooks the back garden.

  • Bedroom 3

    2.7m x 2.5m (6.7 sqm) - 8' 10" x 8' 2" (72 sqft)

    Bedroom 3 is a quiet single room at the rear of the house featuring the same beautiful wooden floors we have seen elsewhere in the house. A large character window gives a great view of the rear garden and would make this an excellent space for a study. It currently houses a double futon which just shows how it is also perfect as a spare room, or could be used as a nursery, or even fitted with wardrobes to be used as a dressing room.

  • Bathroom

    Even the bathroom has character in this house! White tiled floors, white Victorian-style WC and sink and white wall tiles keep the room looking very fresh and light. These have been combined with a contemporary under-sink storage unit. The fully tiled corner shower unit with glass sliding door is fitted with a double shower; a hand-held shower head below and a waterfall shower head above. This room is another which has been refreshed by the current vendors and the level of the finish is impressive.

  • Storage Room

    2.8m x 2.52m (7 sqm) - 9' 2" x 8' 3" (75 sqft)

    The outside storeroom is attached to the end of the house and is a very useful addition to the house. Previously, access was provided from the kitchen, and with the relevant consents and permission, this could be used to extend the current kitchen or maybe make an outside study.

  • Rear Garden

    The rear garden can be accessed from the front of the property as well as the house and is a charming garden which is a surprisingly good size for this type of property. A path leads to a patio area at the back, particularly good for catching the rays. Of course, this would also be an ideal entertaining area for BBQs or cocktails on the lawn, surrounded by shrubbery beds and raised beds made with railway sleepers. An outside tap has also been provided for washing muddy boots and a useful shed at the back for storage.

    Please note, all dimensions are approximate / maximums and should not be relied upon for the purposes of floor coverings.
