A fine town house with stunning views situated above the banks of the River Severn with private gardens and parking.

The property The Old Vicarage is a handsome detached town house, situated above the banks of the River Severn, with attractive walled gardens and glorious views.

The house is a much loved family home and offers spacious, light and attractive accommodation embracing period details including polished parquet and oak floors, striking fireplaces, high ceilings and deep sash windows to many of the rooms. The kitchen is fitted in traditional style and opens to a contemporary garden room which combines as a dining room. There are three principal reception rooms off the central hallway.

An elegant staircase leads to the first floor landing off which is the master bedroom with views over the River Severn and an en suite dressing room and bathroom beyond. Two further double bedrooms are served by the family bathroom. A further staircase leads to the second floor and three bedrooms served by a separate W.C.

To the rear of the house, a small annexe has been created with a separate entrance and also linked by the garden room to the main house. This includes a kitchen area, sitting room, downstairs bathroom and upstairs bedroom.


Outside The property is approached via double gates leading to a gravelled forecourt. Beautiful walled gardens to the side and rear of the property are laid mainly to lawn and are bordered by well stocked flowerbeds, mature shrubs and established trees. A raised paved terrace extends from the house, offering a number of seating areas from which to enjoy the grounds.

A pedestrian gate onto Severn Bank provides direct access to the delightful riverside walks and the national cycle route.


Location The Old Vicarage is at the end of a much sought after terrace of fine upstanding Victorian and Edwardian houses, above the banks of the River Severn and with south facing views across to the Mousefield Nature Reserve and Castle Walk Park.

The town centre and train station are nearby with a wide selection of boutiques, cafés and restaurants along with the Theatre Severn. The River Severn forms a loop around the town, providing riverside walks and the location of the annual boat race, which can be viewed from The Quarry Park where the Shrewsbury Flower Show and a number of other events are held throughout the year.

The property is conveniently placed for a number of highly regarded schools in both the state and private sectors and include Shrewsbury School, Shrewsbury High School for Girls and Shrewsbury Sixth Form College. Shrewsbury train station provides numerous rail connections including a direct train service to London.

A short distance after the railway bridge, take a right hand turn onto New Park Road, followed by another right turn onto North Street. At the end of the road, turn right at the junction arriving onto Burton Street, where the property will be found slightly to the left, accessed through double wooden gates or pedestrian gate.
