Arranged over the first and second floors are four bedrooms serviced by five bathrooms. Most notable is the sophisticated principal bedroom suite with decorative panelling and original timber flooring.

The Porch House occupies an enviable position within the much coveted “Loop” of the River Severn, close to the excellent amenities of Shrewsbury town centre and with access to charming rover walks. The town also enjoys a range of bespoke shops, prize winning covered market, bars and restaurants along with year round events including the popular Shrewsbury Flower Show, Food Festival and Regatta.

Shrewsbury is noted for its excellent schools both within the state and private sectors. Across the Severn is Shrewsbury School, while St Winifred’s Convent and the GDST High School are just along the road. Further schooling in the area includes Prestfelde and Packwood Preparatory schools, Moreton Hall, Ellesmere College and Wrekin College.

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.
