Situated in one of Shrewsbury's most popular residential areas, Hillgrove is a fine property that was built in 1930 and still retains many original features.   

Shrewsbury, the picturesque county town, is only a short walk away and has an extensive range of shopping, fine dining, museums and a theatre. The Quarry Park is close by and holds numerous events throughout the year including the annual flower show. Hillgrove is well placed for a good selection of schools including Shrewsbury School, Shrewsbury High School for Girls as well as The Priory School nearby.

The A5, a short distance away, provides excellent links to the north west via Oswestry and to the east onto the M54 and the national motorway network. A direct train service is available from Shrewsbury to London. International airports can be found at Manchester, Liverpool and the East Midlands.


Hillgrove offers a fantastic opportunity to live in one of Shrewsbury's most desirable locations. Hillgrove has been greatly restored and extended by the current owners to create a beautifully finished family home. Hillgrove occupies a generous plot and is approached through secured electric wooden gates with the benefit of off street parking for up to eight cars as well as a double garage.

Once through the entrance hall, the living room is located to the front of the accommodation on the right hand side. An open fireplace and natural light are all wonderful features to the room. The conservatory leads on from this where double doors open out to the garden terrace. The formal dining room is a superb space for entertaining and includes a working log fireplace, parquet flooring and new hardwood windows overlooking the garden. The impressive open plan kitchen / breakfast room includes fitted units with contemporary appliances and granite surfaces, as well as a gas AGA. Double doors lead out to the garden from the glazed breakfast area. A boot room is positioned just off the kitchen and provides access to the front drive and rear garden. The utility offers plenty of space for appliances and includes granite surfaces. A study and cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation.

There are five double bedrooms on the first floor, two of which are serviced by en suite facilities. Positioned to the rear of the property, the master bedroom includes a walk in wardrobe with plenty of natural light. The luxurious family bathroom features a separate walk in shower, a heated towel rail, underfloor heating and recessed spotlights. The second floor is a real asset to the accommodation and it is currently used as a play room with the potential to be converted to a gym or games room. An expansive attic can also be found on this floor. New hardwood windows, original beams, stained glass windows and recessed spotlights feature throughout Hillgrove.


The rear garden and grounds are an excellent space for leisure and entertaining and can be accessed from numerous rooms in the property. Stone steps ascend up from the terrace onto the landscaped garden and includes a selection of trees, floral and shrubbery beds, displays and borders.

From the Balfours office, head south on Swan Hill toward College Hill, turn right onto Murivance and continue on to St Chad's Terrace. Continue down to Lower Claremont Bank and take a left onto Frankwell (A458). At the roundabout, take the first exit onto Copthorne Road. Continue to follow the A458 on New Street past the Boathouse pub. Hillgrove is on your right hand side on Porthill Road just after Woodbank Drive.
