Listed Georgian Town House bursting with original features, character and charm.
121 has been sympathetically and lovingly restored by the current owners over the past 20 years. From the original marble flooring in the entrance hall with the craftsman's mark of a heart, to the stunning well-proportioned sitting and dining rooms with the original sash windows allowing light to pour in, the corniced ceilings, marble fireplaces, the deep skirtings, original folding shutters and stone staircases. It really is the quintessential English Town House that makes Georgian architecture quite so wonderful.
This enchanting property is full of history. Built by Thomas Carline in 1830 for his family, it is believed the row of imposing terrace stone fronted houses were constructed shortly after the Lord Hill Column (a famous Shrewsbury land mark) was built to commemorate his successful win in the battle of Waterloo, whilst fighting alongside the Duke of Wellington.
This property boasts six bedrooms, three reception rooms and fantastic dry cellar area - which would be suitable for conversion. A fabulous family room, fully fitted kitchen and the option of an integral flat with a further self-contained kitchen on the top floor, grant this property an exciting versatile twist.
Just ten minutes' walk and you are in the hustle and bustle of the glorious medieval town of Shrewsbury, with its enchanting cobbled streets and Tudor buildings, wonderful independent shops, a plethora of fantastic eateries and bars to the much-sought after state and independent schools, train station, theatre and beautiful quarry park.
The property has parking for two cars and a pretty bijou garden, with its delightful courtyard and bountiful apple tree.
121 is Town living at its best.
