A three bedroomed bungalow for renovation/redevelopment situated in a large elevated prime site within the Ironbridge World Heritage Site with outstanding views across the Gorge and towards the Lloyds Head Free Bridge.

Description - Ironbridge is a renowned and historic town which was at the heart of the Industrial Revolution in the late 18th and early 19th Century and is the home of the world's first iron bridge which was cast at nearby Coalbrookdale in 1779. The area is known for its industrial heritage with many local museums including Blists Hill Victorian Village. Ironbridge has a charming town centre adjoining the River Severn situated at the bottom of the River Severn Gorge and is a World Heritage site. The slopes of the Gorge combine a mix of imposing detached period residences mingling with the charming cottages up the hillside.

16 Wesley Road is a unique large prime site situated on a slope overlooking the Gorge with considerable scope to either renovate or demolish and erect a larger property, subject to planning. This is a prime site with outstanding views across the Gorge.

The property is within walking distance to the town centre with many restaurants and shops. Telford town centre and the local retail parks are within easy reach offering an excellent range of shopping, recreation amenities and railway links to Birmingham and London some 5 miles away. The M54 is only a 10 minutes drive away with links to the M6 giving quick access to Birmingham to the north as well as the M6 toll which connects the M42 and M40.

16 Wesley Road is situated on a site of former terraced properties. The property itself is in need of renovation or demolition and re-development, however it offers an opportunity in a sought after area to establish a unique large family home in an outstanding location in a plot extending to 0.77 acres.

Access is via a drive off Wesley Road which leads to this large slightly sloping site and the property. The extent of the property is shown on the attached plan.

Accommodation - Entrance hall to the front of the property leads to a small lobby, off which is:
Sitting Room with log burner and window to the front of the property.
Dining Room with open fireplace and window to the front of the property and a quarry tiled floor.
Passageway off which:
Kitchen with fitted units with stainless steel sink, range cooker.
Bathroom with bath, WC and pedestal sink unit
Three bedrooms.
The property is in need of complete renovation and/or demolition and re-development, subject to planning. Currently the single storey bungalow property provides 82.8 square metres of internal floor area. This can be easily be re-developed into a two storey property on the same footprint which would provide a substantial family home.

Outside - The property sits in a large elevated plot which is south facing with outstanding views over the Ironbridge Gorge below towards the Lloyds Head Free Bridge. The area extends to approximately 0.77 acres and comprises an area of flat grassland and parking to the front of the property which slopes down to two greenhouses which are in need of renovation with an area of rough grassland and woodland to the rear and to the east of the property. This area has tremendous potential to develop into an outstanding amenity space. It is of a unique size which is unknown in Ironbridge and provides an opportunity to create a fabulous family home.

Tenure: - We are advised by our client that the property is freehold.
