Bicton Villa is a handsome Georgian home dating back to the Napoleonic era. It is situated in the village of Bicton, on the very edge of Shrewsbury. The house is approached through a pair of traditionally forged wrought iron gates at the end of Villa Lane, a private 'No Through' road. The property sits beautifully in mature, landscaped grounds, approaching an acre (0.28 ha). An array of unusual trees and shrubs greet you on the way to the front door, which is covered by an elegant veranda.

On entering the Villa through the entrance hall, there is a snug with underfloor heating under the carefully re-laid original floor, a large wood burner to the left and an anteroom to the right. Beyond the anteroom is the drawing room with a fabulous ornate fireplace. Moving onwards we arrive at the Annex, which offers a self-contained living area with underfloor heating under Italian Marble floors. Accommodation here includes kitchenette, shower room, double bedroom, plus a very relaxing sitting room / study with views overlooking the garden.

Further through is the garden / dining room where entertaining may spill through French doors into the sunken garden beyond. Adjoining this is the family kitchen, boasting a characterful set of Oak mullioned windows (high efficiency double glazed) offering fantastic views out onto the garden. Here the original quarry tiles have been painstakingly re-laid and underfloor heating installed resulting in a wonderfully bright and warm living space. Next door is the spacious and bright utility room which contains the boiler and downstairs cloakroom.

Upstairs, on the first floor, is a family bathroom with a bedroom to the right also having an en suite shower room. To the left is a pair of double bedrooms, one leading into the next. On the second floor we find an additional shower room and two further bedrooms. From up here the distinctive outline of Pontesford Hill can clearly be seen outside in the grounds.

The garden is well stocked with a good selection of unusual fruit trees and rare ornamental shrubs. An outbuilding in need of restoration, offers a great opportunity to create a home office or additional living space (subject to the necessary planning consent). Further there is also a large garage providing storage for up to 3 cars.

From Shrewsbury town centre, proceed from Frankwell Island along The Mount heading towards Welshpool and Oswestry. On reaching the traffic lights at the end of The Mount, keep on the B4380 for approximately one and a half miles. Go past the Four Crosses Garage and take the next right onto Villa Lane. The house is the first on the right.
