Porthill heritage with generous extras

A generous plot, in a prime location are key features of this five bedroom home, with hidden extras, in the heart of one of Shrewsbury’s most popular residential areas.

Hillgrove’s coordinates in Porthill Road are as attractive as its 1930s heritage, laced with sympathetic restoration to the highest standards. The forecourt to the timber and brick frontage provide a warm welcome for up to eight cars, plus garaging for two.

Beyond the classic front door is a well-balanced entrance hall providing access to all reception rooms and the ground floor cloakroom. Each of the rooms is of pleasant proportion, the dining room with working fireplace, parquet floor and generous glazing; significantly it links directly through to the kitchen.

The kitchen breakfast space is immaculately presented open plan, with Aga and granite work surfaces. French doors achieve seamless and practical alfresco eating and drinking.  The living room has the added bonus of a conservatory with French doors to the same said space.

Other ground floor essentials include a study, utility room, again with granite worktops, and a boot room – no more traipsing across clean floors – this dedicated space can be accessed from both within and outside the house.

The first floor provides two en-suite rooms; a further three bedrooms are serviced by the luxurious family bathroom. A real asset to Hillgrove is the second floor, one room currently used a as playroom, with the potential to convert into a gym or games room and the other as attic storage space.

Balfours town sales manager, Alistair Hilton says: “Hillgrove goes the extra mile to provide a tremendous space internally and externally and we haven’t mentioned the rear garden which is perfectly in keeping with an abundance of space for children and entertaining.”

Hillgrove is marketed with a guide price of 875,000, for more information call Alistair Hilton on 01743 353511 .

Balfours Staff Day

An appreciation of everyone’s contribution to business was the name of the game when some 70 Balfours staff from offices at Shrewsbury, Craven Arms and Hereford enjoyed a staff day at Weston Park recently (Sept 14).

Business manager, Craig Varley, billed the day a great success: “Our core skills are in land and property management, within which we have many specialised disciplines; it is therefore important that each department, from planning and building surveying, to sales, lettings and accounts have an understanding of and affinity with estate management and their fellow colleagues.

“Weston Park was a superb location for the occasion and enabled us to provide a window on some of the practical achievements which our team have been involved with.”

Gone to earth – Fox Barn

Fox Barn is a home worthy of horn blowing. Situated six miles north of Shrewsbury, this grade II listed barn conversion is immaculate in its presentation. Who could blame any fox for going to ground here?

Set in 2.5 acres of grounds, including landscaped gardens and paddock, Fox Barn, Fitz, offers three or four bedroom accommodation. However it is the reception rooms which add the real exhilaration to this house hunt.

“A” frame beams both lift and anchor the character in the entrance hall, kitchen diner and sitting room. It is the ceiling, open to the eaves which give each of these spacious rooms a truly airy feel. The kitchen island and storage is well planned sitting comfortably, within pleasing social and practical range of the dining table – this is the sort of kitchen diner which enticed us away from formal dining.

Across the entrance hall the sitting room is equally attractive. The stainless steel flue from the woodburner snakes its way up into the eaves as a feature in its own right, and linking 21st century technology with oak beams which not so long ago sheltered cows chewing their cud and new born lambs. 

Bedroom accommodation comprises of a ground floor master suite, together with a second bedroom or study. On the first floor there are another two bedrooms sharing the family bathroom. There is a double garage.

Beyond the grounds are views of rural Shropshire at its best, including the village Church. The amenities of Fitz and Baschurch are close to hand, yet this property is 15 minutes’ drive from the vibrant county town of Shrewsbury.

Fox Barn is marketed by Balfours with a guide price of £575,000, for more information call Clemmie Daborn on 01743 353511.
