Full description

The property
2 Council House is one of Shrewsbury’s finest historic houses, built within the outer bailey of the hilltop Castle. Today it is a wonderful family home with superb views, beautiful walled gardens, garaging and parking, peacefully located within the town centre.

The house, while in need of modernisation, has superb period architecture which has been adapted over time from its Jacobean origins embracing Georgian and Regency detail. It has an excellent layout, with the front door opening to a hallway off which leads the striking panelled drawing room with three sash windows framing the far reaching views over the River Severn and a marble fireplace with inset Delft tiles. The neighbouring dining room is also panelled, with two sash windows, a polished oak floor, fireplace and an inset display alcove.

Across the hall, the kitchen/breakfast room has an AGA range and a wide bay window has views across the garden. Beyond is the back hall with access to the garden and a walk-in larder. There is also access to the garden from the main hall from where there is a door opening to stairs leading down to the large cellars below.

An impressive wide early 18th Century oak staircase leads up to the half panelled first floor and the second floor landings.

The panelled master bedroom has an adjoining dressing room and shower room and both it and the neighbouring panelled bedroom have two window seats below the deep sash windows. A further bedroom and the family bathroom make up the first floor accommodation while to the second floor, there are two further bedrooms and a small oak door opens to a secret room and stairway giving access to the roof.

Location
2 Council Court House stands in a quiet enclave close to the Castle within Shrewsbury’s town centre nestling into the “Loop” of the River Severn. Accessed through an archway, to a cobbled courtyard beyond, the house stands in an elevated position above the River and with far reaching views to the Shropshire Hills.

Shrewsbury is noted for its range of bespoke shops, bars, restaurants and theatre along with year round events including the popular Shrewsbury Flower Show, Food Festival and Regatta. The town also boasts excellent schools both within the state and private sectors including Shrewsbury School, the High School and Prestfelde Prep.

The house is situated close to the main railway station with a regular service to Manchester, Birmingham and London. Road communications are excellent with the A5/M54 linking through to Telford, the West Midlands and the national motorway network beyond. International airports are available at Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool and East Midlands.

Outside
2 Council House Court is accessed through an archway below the 16th Century Gate house to a pretty cobbled court yard beyond. To the right hand side are two former coach houses, now garages to 2 Council House Court. The front door is to be found round the corner with a parking space to the front.

The principal garden, walled and mainly laid to lawn with beautiful stocked borders, is situated to the west of the house with a pathway leading to the garages. A walkway leads round to walled terraces to the south facade with a pathway leading down to a gate which opens to Water Lane below. This in turn leads down to the glorious riverside walks.
