This superb period townhouse has been sympathetically improved by the current vendors with an obvious eye for detail and design flair, the results are simply stunning.
5A The Square is offered to the market occupying an enviable town centre location. With parking available by separate negotiation, and presented to the highest quality, the property provides versatile and adaptable accommodation. Notably, the current owners have excelled in preserving the properties traditional and historic features, cleverly complemented with contemporary and design lead statement fixtures.
Accessed directly from Shrewsburys historic town square, the entrance and lobby open to original and sympathetically restored wood panelling and traditional beams. Off this, is a boot room leading to a utility/laundry room, offering ample storage including a secure basement area.
Taking the main staircase to the first floor, the property opens into a spacious and stylish U shaped kitchen, boasting marble worktops, Belfast sink and integrated appliances. An exposed and characterful brick archway leads to the large dining room featuring striking original windows taking in views of the town square and market hall below. With corridor leading to further accommodation, the panelled bathroom can be found to the left, and in keeping with the traditional aesthetic of the property, benefits from a roll top bath and enjoys natural light from the skylight above.
The principal rooms are well proportioned with high ceilings and large windows which maximise natural light. The entire house is brimming with period features such as beautiful stained glass windows, elegant fireplaces, exposed beams and exquisite wooden panelling. This unique home is decorated throughout in rich tones which compliment the historic features, whilst contemporary fittings offer modern day comfort. The generous drawing room, again noted for its high ceiling, feature fireplace and panelled walls, with double sliding doors, offers a generous space for relaxing and entertaining. The fourth bedroom, currently used as a cinema room, can be found adjacent and features the original fireplace and windows looking out over the square below.
To the second floor, an open landing continues to highlight the steeped history of the building, with the second breakfast kitchen/utility room situated in the eaves and offering ample facilities with modern shaker style cabinetry. The spacious principal bedroom with original heritage tiled fireplace surround occupies the centre of this floor, and welcomes light from the large stained glass window. Two further generous double bedrooms are well serviced by two shower rooms, both of contemporary design, and one with stylish metro style tiling.
If required, it is possible for the first and second floor to be used as independent properties due to the fact that there are two kitchens and the access to the second floor can be independent of the first floor. This would create a one bedroom apartment and a two bedroom apartment.
