The Priory is a five bedroomed, Grade II Listed cottage, situated in the heart of Edgmond, a rural village which sits in the north east of the Shropshire countryside, about two miles from Newport, with its highly regarded schools and its leisure and shopping facilities, and approximately eight miles from Telford and fifteen miles from Shrewsbury, larger towns with even more amenities, rail and motorway links.
The village itself has many facilities and amenities. There are two pubs – The Lion and The Lamb, and two churches – St Peter’s Church and The Methodist Chapel. The Telford & Wrekin maintained Playing Fields are in the centre of the village with cricket & football pitches set out. There is a playground for young children behind the Bowling Club and a fenced multi-purpose games area next to the Cricket Pavilion. The Post Office is housed in the Village Stores on the High Street in the centre of the village.
Edgmond also has many areas for walking and biking, including a walk through the area known locally as The Rock Hole, an old sandstone quarry from which the rock used to build the Church was probably taken.
The Priory is an elegant home of great character, with the original parts of the building believed to date from 1570. In 1870, the property was ‘remodelled’, according to the Listing text, and renamed The Priory. Local folklore suggests that the entrance to a secret underground passage going directly to the church can be found in the grounds of the home!
The Priory was Listed in 1983, notably for its sash windows, gabled hooded panelled front door and off centre brick ridge stack, as well as some internal features including the nooks to either side of the fireplace in the lounge and the dining room ‘egg and dart’ moulded cornice and fluted frieze, original dining room fireplace and settle as well as an internal wall cupboard. Full details of the Listing can be found online. As well as Listed features, there are two beautiful trees in the grounds, subject to Tree Preservation Orders, one being a Weeping Beech and the other a Lombardy Poplar.
The owner has lovingly renovated the property over the past few decades, maintaining the original features, and incorporating modern elements, such as kitchen and bathroom facilities, sympathetically. As the windows are part of the Listing, the owners have maintained them in their original format, but secondary glazed them to the inside, to provide some insulation. The house also benefits from a larger than average detached brick garage and a substantial greenhouse attached to the rear of the property, as well as a large off road parking area and private, pretty, mature gardens, wrapping around the building.

A specimen Lombardy Poplar makes a beautiful statement in this part of the garden. The front garden is laid to neat lawns, with the front border of the property bounded by a neatly trimmed beech hedge.
