Sitting in the charming, bohemian Abbey Foregate area of Shrewsbury is 4 Abbey Gardens, a five-bedroom, late Victorian, three storey home. Positioned in a quiet leafy street within walking distance of some excellent state and independent schools, Shrewsbury's enchanting, cobbled streets and Tudor buildings, wonderful independent shops, a plethora of fantastic eateries, and bars, train station, theatre, and beautiful quarry park.
Abbey Gardens comprises two large houses on Whitehall Street, set back from the road, of which 4 Abbey Gardens forms half of one house and is semi detached. The old Abbey walls, made of sandstone form the boundary on one side of the property, which dates back to the late Victorian period.
The property is extremely private and comprises four reception rooms, a large open-plan kitchen with utility, a cloakroom, and a dry cellar. The first floor is host to three good sized double bedrooms, two bathrooms and a large airing cupboard. The second floor includes a family bathroom, two large double bedrooms and once again a large storage cupboard. The house is light, bright, and airy with lots of potential for someone to put their stamp on it. The icing on the cake with this property is undoubtedly the stunning large back garden, generous in size, well established and very private.
This property last came to market over thirty years ago and still retains lots of charm and character. To the front is a shingled driveway and parking for three cars. Parking is in high demand on this street so it is a fabulous gain for this property. There are wrought iron double gates and a beautiful Magnolia tree, shading the drive and keeping it cool, there are also lots of well-established shrubs and planting. The property is very attractive from the front with pretty ornate decorative detail above the long Victorian sash windows. Read more
