Heritage and beauty in village setting

27/09/2016

A four bedroom village house with a striking Georgian exterior has been launched to the market by Balfours.

The exterior of Bank House belies the age of this grade II listed house, which is believed to have been built in the mid-17th century.  Internally its oak frame and wealth of exposed beams, studwork and truss detail have been meticulously and tastefully restored to reveal breath taking heritage and beauty.

It is situated in Dorrington, six miles south of Shrewsbury. The village is virtually equi-distance of six miles from Shrewsbury and Church Stretton, with the main Midlands network converging some four miles north on the A49.

The ground floor provides two good sized reception rooms, together with the kitchen, downstairs cloakroom with shower and utility. The first floor has three bedrooms, the master room being en-suite and the other two bedrooms sharing a shower room. The second floor benefits from a superb suite retreat, with bedroom, bathroom and sitting room.

Below stairs is a room which could retain its original purpose of a cellar, or be used as a gym. Bank House is blessed with several other external rooms including one currently used as a workshop, which is attached to the house, an office and a garage. The house benefits from well-kept garden to the front and rear of the property.

Agent Duncan Scobie comments: “This is a very pleasing home, laced with heritage and in an excellent quiet location within Dorrington, where local amenities include primary school, vibrant village hall, popular public house, eateries and village shop and butchers.”

Bank House is marketed with a guide price of £550,000. For more information call Duncan Scobie on 01743 35351.

Porthill heritage with generous extras

21/09/2016

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

21/09/2016

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.”
