Grade II elegant Georgian House occupying an elevated position with beautiful terraced gardens and views overlooking Ironbridge Gorge with 5 bedrooms and a separate 1 bedroom annexe.



Location

Severn Lodge occupies an elevated position above the popular
conservation town of Ironbridge within a World Heritage Site. Ironbridge sits on the banks of the River Severn and is famed for being the birthplace of the industrial revolution. It is now a more charming large village with a number of public houses, restaurants and independent shops, all set within the dramatic setting of the wooded Gorge.

There are a number of schools in the area including Coalbrookdale and Ironbridge CofE Primary School, Madeley Academy, Thomas Telford as well as Wrekin College, Shrewsbury School and High School in the independent sector.

Description

Severn Lodge is an elegant, detached, Georgian Grade II listed house, standing within glorious walled gardens extending to about 0.42 acres, enjoying views over the gorge and towards the River Severn.

Accommodation is set over three floors with the majority of accommodation over the ground and first floor and with the added benefit of secondary accommodation contained in a separate flat. The property retains many of the classical Georgian features such as finely proportioned rooms, large sash
windows, coved ceiling cornicing and attractive fireplaces.

The part glazed front door is framed externally by a beautiful established wisteria and the ground floor reception rooms are accessed from a large bright central reception hall with an attractive parquet floor and turned oak staircase leading to the first floor. To one side is an Adams style fireplace with wood burning stove. There are three well proportioned reception rooms and an office study all enjoying good views through sash windows. Double doors open from the hallway to the kitchen and conservatory with a four door gas fired Aga and units fitted by Dayrooms of Wolverhampton. The adjoining utility room has a range of storage cupboards and separate WC and shower
room. Beyond is a soundproofed former recording studio now used as an office space with its own separate access.

On the first floor there are five bedrooms, four of which have ensuite bathroom/shower rooms and an additional family bathroom. There is excellent storage, with four of the bedrooms benefiting from built in wardrobes/cupboards and additional storage on the landing. One of the bedrooms host views of the original Ironbridge.

The Flat
The flat is accessible from either the entrance hall or an external door to the side of the house. Converted from the original basement, accommodation comprises: a kitchen/sitting room, a double bedroom with recessed storage area, bathroom with slipper bath and hallway, fitted with a desk and book
shelves offering an ideal study area. Original features have been retained such as the arched doorways and exposed brick walls.

Outside
Severn Lodge is approached through double electric gates onto a gravel driveway which leads to block paved parking for several cars and gives access to a carport. In front of the house are landscaped gardens with an area of lawn to one side. A summer house enjoys an elevated position in the far corner along with a decked terrace which looks towards the River Severn. The front facade is framed by a mature flowering clematis and mature shaped topiary.

To the rear of Severn Lodge is a large south easterly facing terraced garden with a central lawn surrounded by well stocked borders of mature and specimen plants and trees including magnolia, camellia, yew and apple. A Koi pond is located on the lower lawn and to the side a stepped path gives access to a rear pedestrian gate. The gardens are a beautiful feature and enjoy views across the gauge. All areas of the garden are made accessible via pathways which lead to a raised summer house and a part brick and timber traditional greenhouse, as
well as a number of other areas in which to enjoy the garden from. The boundaries are formed by a large brick wall.

Square Footage: 3,842 sq ft
