***PARKING MAY BE AVAILABLE BY SEPARATE NEGOTIATION***26 St John's Hill, Shrewsbury stands in an unbeatable location in the finest Georgian street in historic Shrewsbury. Grade II listed, in a conservation area, the four storey house, built in 1761, contains a wealth of Georgian and Regency period features in well-proportioned rooms.
From the front door the superb and friendly covered market – voted Britain's Favourite Market 2018 – can be reached on foot in 4 minutes, along with the town's famed independent shops along with restaurants and other amenities. The back door leads into a 15m x 6m garden bounded by the churchyard of Grade I Georgian circular St Chad's Church (1792). You have to sit here to appreciate the cooing of pigeons in the mature trees and the absence of any sound of town life – a veritable rus in urbe. It is an exceptional town centre situation.
The front door of this discreetly elegant house with Regency ironwork balcony gives onto a vestibule and welcoming hall. The ground floor provides a formal dining-room at the front, and to the rear a reception room with views across a patio onto the garden and church beyond, fitted with ample storage cupboards and library shelves. In an extension beyond stands the fitted kitchen with space for eating.
From the hall the staircase leads to the lower floor containing, at the front, the original kitchen retaining many Georgian features with Victorian range and a separate walk-in store cupboard with copious shelving. This room has been tanked and recently used as a study/office. At the back is another large room with condensing boiler, washing machine and ample space for storage of garden implements etc. An outside staircase gives access to the patio and garden.
The original balustered oak staircase leads to the first floor with a classic formal drawing room with Regency window and balcony above the street, while off the spacious landing to the rear is a double bedroom with en suite bathroom.
The second floor comprises three further bedrooms (two to the front and a double room at the back with stunning views over the garden and churchyard) with family bathroom, and a walk-in airing cupboard.   
If you are looking for a tasteful family home in the centre of a beautiful town, bounded by the river Severn, this much-loved house in its incomparable setting will fulfil your heart's desire.
