65 The Old Meadow is a stunning contemporary town house designed by award-winning architect Andrew Arrol in neo-Georgian style and completed in 2014. It incorporates eco-efficient, comfortable and bright accommodation with balconies and terraces providing outside space along with a charming courtyard garden. Built upon a specially engineered promontory well above the flood-plain, this house offers a superlative view of Shrewsbury's charming skyline, while its interior has been designed to reflect the town's rich 18th and 19th century architectural heritage. The house offers beautiful and bespoke living space.
The front door opens to the hall with a Karndean classic-oak effect floor and built-in cloaks cupboard, understairs store and cloakroom. Beyond is the bespoke fitted kitchen/dining room, with fitted appliances including a Neff induction hob and French doors opening to the well screened low maintenance courtyard garden.
The elegant staircase, with decorative newel posts and elegant ball-caps, leads up to the first floor landing and the striking drawing-room with a deep picture-window and a wide balcony framing the glorious views. Also on this floor is the impressive principal bedroom with its en suite shower room and balcony from where the morning sun can be enjoyed.
To the second floor there are three further bedrooms, all of which enjoy far-reaching views, and are individually styled and served by a luxurious family bathroom. The one overlooking the garden is presently used as a study, while the smaller of the three is presently utilised as a dressing-room.
A further staircase, lit by a light-filled atrium, leads up to the sun-room: a glorious, bright, versatile, and attractive living-space, glass-panelled to both ends with French doors opening to both east and west-facing terraces. The view to the east embraces the Abbey and to the west lies the riverside and the town with its historic spires.
