The Property - Inglesant is an imposing five bedroom detached Edwardian residence, situated in an extremely sought after location within the quaint South Shropshire market town of Church Stretton. Ideally located with the county town of Shrewsbury just 14 miles distant, the commercial hub of Telford 26 miles distant , where you will also find access to the motorway network. The historic market town of Ludlow is only 15 miles south and a direct train runs regularly to Manchester and Cardiff from the station.

The property itself is located on the east side of town, just a short level walk to the town centre. As you stand outside Inglesant, looking up at the impressive three storey red brick structure, you get an immediate sense of the history and character you are likely to find inside. A wrought iron hand gate opens to the front garden and takes you to the part glazed entrance door. Upon entering the property the first thing you will see is the beautiful mosaic tiled flooring which spans the spacious entrance hall. Take the time to really enjoy the intricate detail before moving your gaze to the other period features you will see. High ceilings, picture rails, original doors, ceiling cornices and original fireplaces are all found throughout this special home. It certainly will not be the first stop on your tour of Inglesant but it is worth mentioning there is a very useful cellar to the property where you will find power and lighting. A more likely first stop on your tour however, is the dining room. A large uPVC bay window looks out to the street scene while the cast iron fireplace with its carved wooden surround provide the focal point inside the room. Adjacent is the lounge, a wonderfully cosy room with a glazed door opening to the delightful rear garden and a superb example of an original fireplace. The property has a comforting homely feel while retaining a slight sense of grandeur. To the rear you will find the breakfast kitchen, cream cupboards with butcher block worktops line the walls, while some of the cupboards have glazed fronts and there is space for the usual kitchen appliances. A sociable room owing to the fact the current owners have 'opened it up' so it now incorporates a lovely breakfast room at the far end which looks out to the garden. Completing the ground floor accommodation are the rear hallway and W.C.

On the first floor you will find four of the five bedrooms boasted by the property. Two of the bedrooms look out to the rear and enjoy a wonderful view of the Long Mynd, while the other two bedrooms are located to the front and take in views to Caer Caradoc. It is worth mentioning that the principle first floor bedroom is a very good size and has an original fireplace. The family bathroom is also located on the first floor and comprises both a paneled bath and a walk-in shower cubicle. To find the stunning Master suite you have to ascend to the second floor. The landing could be used as a dressing area given the size but the generous proportions of the bedroom almost render that unnecessary. The Master Bedroom, measuring almost 25 square metres, is a light and airy room owing to the four windows which offer lovely views. There is useful eves storage although you are more likely to be preoccupied by the smashing en-suite facilities to notice.

The tour does not stop there, before you leave you must take in the beautiful garden. A paved patio opens out to a large level lawn which is bordered by the most stunning array of plants and shrubs, giving bursts of colour which change with the seasons. As you walk down the garden, taking in your surroundings, you will find the productive 'kitchen garden' and timber shed slightly hidden from view. The gardens are a real feature of this home and somewhere you will be sure to spend a lot of time enjoying the views, maybe with a glass of wine in hand.

The Town - Set against the scenic backdrop of the Shropshire Hills, Church Stretton is small market town with a population of around 3500. The town is also fondly referred to as 'Little Switzerland', you will understand exactly why from the second you start to get closer as you drive down the A49 into Church Stretton. Day or night you will be mesmerized by the beauty of the South Shropshire hillside as it gradually appears with its ominous splendour. If it is night time the twinkle of little houses nestled in the hills, with billowing smoke from the chimneys, will have you curious with whom might be living there and make you wish you were sitting next to the open fire looking out over the hillside. If it is during the day, you may catch sight of some hardy hikers scaling the top of Caradoc, The Ragleth, or the Longmynd, or perhaps a daring mountain biker will be catapulting down the fast array of mountain bike routes that makes this part of the world so desirable for bikers and hikers alike. Depending on the time of year you may also witness some skiers, snowboarders or sledgers enjoying the wonderful winters snow Church Stretton often gets, making it a tourist attraction all year round. Church Stretton has direct access to over 20 square miles of National Trust land. It is a haven for many who love the outdoors, paragliding, gliders, fell runners, photographers, artists, all flock to experience their love of the outdoors and capture it how they know best in this wondrous town. Perhaps this is all a little too energetic for you? Maybe if we come down from the hills you can have a leisurely stroll through the beautiful Rectory woods, and enjoy the stunning bluebells which have been photographed time and time again in all their glory creating magical pieces of art. All of which can be bought as a memorable keepsake in the form of postcards, greetings cards, pictures and photos from the National Trust shop, or in some of the shops in the town centre. Boasting many award winning coffee shops, quintessentially English tea rooms, cafes, restaurants, bars and public houses. Quaint little shops selling anything from brick-a-brac, to flowers, sweets, handmade chocolates, ice cream, vintage clothing, gifts, jewellery and so much more. On a more practical level, you also have some fantastic day to day facilities. A doctor’s surgery, 2 dentists, a leisure centre with swimming pool, a Primary and Secondary school, a library, tourist information centre, garages, petrol station, Co-op Supermarket, Spar Convenience store, banks, takeaways, and many other local businesses, independent stores, DIY shops and kitchen facilities. There are a huge amount of bus routes taking you to surrounding towns and villages meaning you are as connected as you can be, not to mention the train station with direct routes into Shrewsbury and Ludlow. Lets face it though, with everything we have listed above, will you actually ever need to leave?
