Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A handsome, attached character property dating back to 1820 set in a most enviable position in the heart of the market town of Newtown. The property has recently been sympathetically modernised, with the restoration work in keeping with its era. Period features throughout including original mosaic tiled flooring to hall, spectacular oak staircase sweeping up to galleried landing and two impressive stone pillars at the front door. At the foot of each pillar is a cast iron lion, which we believe to be designed by Edwin Landseer the artist who created the lions in Trafalgar Square. Opposite the property is the former coach house which has been converted to a high standard into a one bedroom annex. Level well maintained gardens, garaging and parking complete this perfect family home.

VENDOR INTERVIEW 
Crescent House is a handsome property that sits in a convenient and enviable position in the heart of the historic town of Newtown. At one end of the street there is a bridge over the River Severn leading to the town centre, while at the other there is access straight onto open parkland and the mile upon mile of beautiful countryside beyond. "Before moving here we were living deep in the countryside in a property that had acres of land," says Philip. "We used to get snowed in in the winter and sometimes felt a little isolated. My wife is a town girl at heart and was desperate to move somewhere more convenient, and this lovely home turned out to be the perfect compromise."

. 
"As well as the courtyard, which is handy for parking, we also have a lovely garden," says Philip. "It's raised and so we can see right over the town. The previous owner was a keen gardener, so it was nicely established, and it's a real suntrap so a very nice place to sit out during the summer." "My wife and I have lived in this area all our lives," concludes Philip, "so to list what we'll miss would take far too long. Suffice to say this is a beautiful home in a stunning location." Philip
