The property 17 St Johns Hill is a delightful historic town house situated in a prime residential area of Shrewsbury. Grade II listed, the house is primarily 17th century when it was the hall and cross wing of the neighbouring house, however the property is believed to have much earlier origins dating back to the 15th century and has then been re fashioned and adapted over the centuries with Georgian and Edwardian alterations. It retains considerable period detail and character with its light and attractive family accommodation set over three floors.
The front door opens to a pretty tiled hallway, with a wide oak staircase and door opening to the garden beyond. The dining room has a moulded ceiling, deep sash window, classical fireplace with marble slips and double doors opening to the elegant drawing room, also with a feature fireplace and wide windows with views over the pretty garden to the rear. Across the hall is a cosy study and traditionally fitted utility and kitchen, off which leads a conservatory and French doors opening to the paved terrace. A cloakroom with W.C. completes the downstairs accommodation.
To the first floor are three double bedrooms, two with their original fireplaces, served by a family bathroom and a separate W.C. Off the second floor landing there are two further bedrooms, one with an en suite bathroom, and a separate W.C.
A much loved family home for several decades, 17 St Johns Hill does require a level of updating, but rarely is a house found which retains such integrity and charm which also benefits from a beautiful south facing garden.
