The house is situated in Station Road, which is an established residential conservation area in the older original part of Madeley.

It is convenient for Madeley town centre, which has undergone a regeneration scheme including new offices, shops and a new Tesco supermarket. Local primary and two new state of the art Academy schools lie nearby, incorporating nursery, primary and secondary options. The historical town of Ironbridge is approximately 1.5 miles away, famous for the World's first iron bridge erected in 1779 and designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Similar distance is the settlement of Coalport, famous for the manufacturing of Coalport China and its museum. There are many countryside walks in the area including the Silkin Way. Telford Town Centre is approximately 5 miles away with its wide range of leisure, retail and transport facilities. There is good access to the M54 motorway link road leading to the main M6 & M1 motorway network.
