Edwardian five-bed with contemporary extension

Balfours has launched to the market an Edwardian, stone built semi-detached 5 bedroom house in Shrewsbury’s popular Meole village, just 2 miles from the town centre.

Number 78 Upper Road, is a home of two moods, benefitting from a contemporary extension to the rear, which now provides a kitchen dining room. The welcome is through a traditional door with leaded light feature and glazing above allowing light to billow down the hallway and up the stairs. The custom-made oak door, which is less than two years old, dresses the frontage perfectly.

From the hallway, first access is to the lounge, which has a pair of matching fireplaces. Chimney breasts, deep coving and a large bay window are attributes which give the room its character. At the bottom of the hall a door leads past several storage cupboards, a utility and shower room, opening into the kitchen, diner.

A contemporary extension is successful with its clever use of Velux lights, plus playful ceiling angles which in turn are reflected in a large, glazed window with outlook directly down the walled garden. It is a deep and private garden with mature Narnia qualities incorporating a garden cabin, though the electric supply might perplex the wardrobe myth.

Returning to the hall staircase the first floor comprises of 3 bedrooms and a family bathroom, with a split-level landing; ascend to the second floor to find 2 more bedrooms. All bedrooms are double, each with character fireplace and 2 having built in wardrobes.

“The qualities of Number 78 are plain to see,” says head of sales at Balfours, Alistair Hilton. “Add to this the property’s convenience to the town and its independent shops, cafes and restaurants, but also the River and Quarry Park. There is a retail park within a few minutes and the location could not be more convenient for commuting into the Midlands, or to the North-West,” he reflects.

Balfours are marketing this Edwardian 5 bedroom home with a guide price of £645,000. For more information call 01743 353511.
