Poundland founder puts his home up for sale – sadly the price tag isn’t £1

Wherever you live, it is likely that when you venture into your nearby town or city, you will walk past a plethora of bargain shops (more often than not situated right next to each other) including the 99p Store, Savers, 99p World, and of course, Poundland.


Steve Smith, the founder of Poundland, who recently sold the company for a whopping £50million is also now selling his 7 bedroom Shropshire pile.


So, could this be the home for you? You could follow in the footsteps of a successful entrepreneur and create your own multi million pound business amongst the pool table and the swimming pool which used to be Mr Smith’s. Maybe we’ll even see you on the next series of Dragons’ Den!


Take a look around the property.


Set in approximately 28.2 acres of land, the property not only includes the main house, but also two gatehouse cottages and a garage/office complex. This means that you would have everything you could wish for nearby, whilst having spectacular parkland views over the Severn Valley and towards the Clee and Welsh Hills.


Inside the property, you will find bedrooms with en-suites, and a grand hall and 5 reception rooms, which have all clearly been decorated with a budget of over £1! We particularly love the shining chandelier lights which appear throughout the property.


You can also keep fit without leaving your home; it comes with both a pool table and an actual pool!


However, our favourite part about this property is not the ability to exercise within its walls, but the fact that it comes with its very own pub! Be the envy of all your friends by having your drinks on tap 24/7.


Plus, after an evening drink, you can either get ready for a night out in your very own super big dressing room, or alternatively relax in a gorgeous bath. Double win!


So, if this house has captured your attention, get yourself down to Bridgnorth and take a look for yourself. The house itself was originally designed by Sir Bertram Clough Williams-Ellis, the creator of Portmerion crockery, so its past is steeped in fame! Location wise, it is conveniently situated for the surrounding market towns of Kidderminster and Bridgnorth, and the cathedral city of Worcester. This means that it is easy to get to both Birmingham and London – the perfect countryside escape that’s not too far away from civilisation! Ideal.
