A newly renovated period property of immense character with delightful south-facing walled gardens within Shrewsbury’s coveted River Severn loop

17 St Johns Hill is a gracious Grade II listed town house situated in a prestigious residential area of Shrewsbury town centre. Primarily 17th century, the property is believed to have much earlier origins dating back to the 15th century and has evolved over the centuries incorporating Georgian and Edwardian alterations.

An extensive scheme of works undertaken in 2021 has accentuated the light and characterful accommodation which is arranged over three floors with a plethora of period detailing. These include moulded cornicing, decorative plasterwork, picture rails, deep sash windows, panelled oak doors and original fireplaces.

The front door opens into the spacious tiled hallway with a marvellous vista of the garden at one end through a part glazed door. There are two primary reception rooms linked by wide panelled oak doors; a family room to the front and drawing room at the rear. Both these elegant rooms have feature cast iron fireplaces and are flooded with light from a full height window onto the garden. The kitchen opens into a part glazed dining room overlooking the garden with double doors onto an alfresco entertaining area. The kitchen is fitted with striking bespoke solid wood cabinetry under oak countertops, a deep-set Belfast sink and Rangemaster cooker. Leading off the kitchen is a utility area and walk-in pantry beyond.

A spacious study and WC complete the ground floor accommodation with steps leading to a full height cellar.

A wide turned oak staircase rises to the first and second floors where five characterful bedrooms are served by an en-suite bathroom, a luxurious family shower room and two WC’s. Most notable is the superbly proportioned principal bedroom with roofscape views across Shrewsbury.


17 St Johns Hill has an enchanting walled garden to the rear. Steps lead up from a gravelled south facing terrace to a central lawn surrounded by fully stocked borders providing year-round interest with herbaceous flowering plants, mature shrubs and fruit trees including quince, pear and apple.

The sellers currently hold a permit for a nearby parking space. Speak to the agent for details.


17 St John’s Hill is situated within the much coveted “Loop” of the River Severn in Shrewsbury town centre where a wide range of independent retailers, high street names, an award winning market hall, cafés and restaurants, are all within minutes of the property. The house enjoys access to quiet walks along the riverbank and to the beautiful Quarry Park.

Shrewsbury is noted for its excellent schools both within the state and private sectors. These include the prestigious Shrewsbury School, with both St Winifred’s Convent and Shrewsbury High School can be found just along the road.

Road communications are excellent with the A5 M54 linking through to Telford, the West Midlands and the national motorway network beyond. There is a train station in Shrewsbury with a regular service to the Midlands and London. International airports are available at Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool and East Midlands.
