Returning to the ground floor, a generous entrance hall provides access to four reception rooms, the sitting room and dining room each benefitting from French doors to the terrace and landscaped garden.

Alistair adds: “This is a great opportunity enjoy a new build which is so well presented it cannot fail to impress. Its’ proximity, just over two miles from Shrewsbury town centre, places it in a hugely sought after area. The location is within minutes of Shrewsbury’s bypass network and comes with a double garage and visitor parking.”
