The property

This Georgian style detached house is located in the centre of the charming village of Dorrington, Shropshire.

The property is situated just off the A49 which runs through the village of Dorrington, in sight of the lovely village church of St Edward's, with access to local amenities, and is ideal for families with older children or groups of friends who wish to enjoy time together in this superb house.

The house is built on the site of a much older property from where it gets its name.

Stepping over the threshold, you enter into a house which is furnished and decorated in an opulent, elegant style, reminiscent of past times with a décor that is unique and stylish.

The front door opens into a black and white tiled veranda, which is ideal for a spot of peaceful reading.

The hallway leads to an elegant dining room with crystal chandelier.

There is a well-equipped main kitchen and a smaller kitchen with additional cupboard space, fridge, microwave and a large selection of glasses, china and cutlery.

The spacious drawing room is furnished with beautiful works of art and interesting ornaments, as well as plush sofas and a gas fire.

There is also a double bedroom and bathroom downstairs.

From the drawing room an unusual, ornate, sweeping staircase leads upstairs to two double bedrooms, one with en-suite, a single bedroom and a further bathroom.

All the rooms have sumptuous soft furnishings and ornate decoration.

After a day exploring the delights of the local area, sit and enjoy the patio or conservatory, or the sumptuous surroundings of the drawing room.

To the rear, there is a delightful conservatory which opens out onto a lovely enclosed private patio with flowerbeds.

Outside, there is ample parking on the gravelled driveway and secure bike storage.

Just five minutes’ walk from the house is the centre of the village of Dorrington which has a pub, restaurant, convenience store and a Post Office.

This beautiful house is perfectly positioned for exploring Shropshire and Mid Wales.

The lovely medieval market town of Shrewsbury is only eight miles away and has a wealth of independent shops, pubs and restaurants on offer.

Throughout the year there are many events which take place within its cobbled streets, or on the outskirts, such as the renowned Shrewsbury Flower Show.

Other popular attractions include the Theatre Severn, Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery, together with the Abbey and Castle.

A relaxing walk in Quarry Park, or a leisurely boat trip on the River Severn, could be the perfect way to end a day exploring the county town of Shropshire and birthplace of Charles Darwin.

From this appealing house, you are perfectly positioned to explore the lovely town of Ludlow which hosts increasingly popular food and medieval festivals or the museums and historic sites of Ironbridge Gorge.

Visit Bridgnorth with its renowned funicular railway or take a trip on the Severn Valley Railway to experience the delights of the bygone era of steam travel.

If you like walking, there are plenty of places to visit, including the Long Mynd, Clee Hills or Stiperstones.

Cycle paths abound and there are opportunities to ride, play golf, fish or even experience the thrill of hot air ballooning all within easy reach.

Travel into Mid Wales to experience its cultural heritage with an abundance of festivals, wildlife, National Trails, pretty market towns, National Trust properties and the stunning beauty of the Brecon Beacons.

Wrap yourself in the elegant surroundings of this beautiful house, whilst exploring the history and beauty of Shropshire and Mid Wales.
