Location - Greensted is a delightful period house with four reception rooms and five double bedrooms. It is set in a Conservation Area in the very popular village of Oldbury, within easy walking distance of the historic market town of Bridgnorth.

Bridgnorth provides a full range of shopping facilities, primary and secondary schools, and sports facilities and swimming pool. The major commercial centres of Telford, Wolverhampton and Birmingham are within easy commuting distance, while Ludlows restaurants and festivals are only half an hours drive away. The town centre of Bridgnorth has lively weekend markets, the Severn Valley Railway, the Theatre on The Steps, an Art Deco cinema, restaurants, a G.P. Surgery and local hospital. The funicular Cliff Railway rises from the banks of the river Severn up to Castle Walk to give a stunning view over High Rock.

The village of Oldbury has a friendly community, centred around the church and village hall. It is known for its quiet country lanes, bordering onto lovely Shropshire countryside and is an ideal location for walking, cycling and riding.

Greensted is a charming home which has remained in the same family for over fifty years. The rear of the property dates back to the early 19th century with an Edwardian addition to the front. It is a lovely blend of period design and gives an opportunity for a new generation to make it into their own lifelong home.

Accommodation - The house is generously proportioned throughout and has a wealth of original period features. The ENTRANCE PORCH opens into a spacious HALL which leads into the main reception rooms. Both the DRAWING ROOM and the SITTING ROOM have French windows opening onto the terrace. The sitting room also has doors into the ALITEX bespoke VINERY with grapevine, plant shelves, rainwatering system and automatic roof opening lights. Attached to the vinery is a handy SIDE LOBBY and a POTTING SHED which also houses the gas central heating boiler. The REAR HALL with original quarry tiled flooring, leads into a fitted KITCHEN with AGA, good sized DINING ROOM and a STUDY. A CLOAKROOM and WC is situated off the hall from where there is also access to the TWO CELLARS.

A splendid staircase ascends to a light and spacious LANDING from where there is access to the FIVE DOUBLE BEDROOMS and a BOXROOM. The MASTER BEDROOM and SECOND BEDROOM both have French windows onto lovely balconies overlooking the garden. One double bedroom retains two original doors so could easily be reinstated into two smaller rooms. There is a FAMILY BATHROOM with a bath, wash hand basin and WC and a SHOWER / WET ROOM with walk in shower, wash hand basin and WC.

Outside - The house sits comfortably in its mature GARDENS, approached from the lane by a wooden gate. The sweeping gravelled DRIVE extends round to the front of the house to provide a large wide TERRACE giving access to the main reception rooms and VINERY. Down the steps, winding PATHS meander past stone walls, roses, shrubberies and lawns to a small orchard area. There are many mature trees including a large Gingko, while on the main lawn is a circular rose bed with a stone bird bath. There is ample parking, a large CARPORT and a very useful brickpaved BACK YARD.
