The Property

Built in the 1830's, 4 Russell Place forms part of a redbrick terrace of 5 houses, with views from both the front and rear. It is surrounded by countryside ideal for walking.

Russell Place is situated at the edge of the village and is extremely well positioned for easy access to the county town of Shrewsbury and the commercial hub of Shropshire, Telford. A charming Georgian Townhouse in a village location is quite a rarity so number 4 is sure to be popular with many potential purchasers. This family home retains much of its original charm and character, the main rooms are well proportioned with high ceilings and secondary glazed Georgian sash windows, original paneled wooden doors are found throughout, as are fireplaces in all the principle rooms.

Access to the property is via a driveway which branches from Berrington Lane, and leads to the rear of the property. Here you will find a parking area for 3 or 4 vehicles, a detached garage which has power and lighting, the court yard garden and the rear entrance. The first room you will enter is the Kitchen, fitted with a range of country style painted units with granite worktops there is more than a touch of quality. The quarry tiled floor and Belfast sink accentuate the period feel but between the Kitchen and the Utility Room there is still space for all of the modern appliances we rely upon these days. The Utility Room also has a wash basin and WC. Off the Kitchen you will find the Dining Room. With high ceilings, an original fitted cupboard, original doors, sash window and a brick fireplace housing the wood burning stove, the Dining Room sets the tone for what to expect throughout the rest of the home. Stairs from the Dining Room lead down to the Cellar, this is a really useful space, there is power and lighting so while you will probably use it for storage, it has many far more exciting possibilities. To the front of the house is the Sitting Room. It is similar to the Dining Room in feel and features but has a slightly more formal ambiance owing to the fitted carpet, picture rail and feature cast iron open fireplace. The Entrance Hall is off the Sitting Room and has stairs which rise to the first floor.

On the first floor are two double Bedrooms, both with charming cast iron fireplaces polished wooden floorboards. The Bedroom to the rear has views over the gardens, while the Bedroom to the front enjoys views across open countryside towards Attingham Park. Also on the first floor is the Family Bathroom which is appointed with a bath, washbasin and WC, and the seperate Shower Room which is fully tiled and has a walk-in shower cubicle.

From the landing, stairs lead to the second floor Bedroom. The Bedroom is a good size and has exposed roof beams, a cast iron open fireplace, a built in storage cupboard and a Velux window enjoying the views to the rear.

Outside, 4 Russell Place enjoys a generous garden. The garden is detached from the house but it stretches around 70 metres in length, while it is approximately 11 metres wide. With a real cottage garden feel which has not been over manicured the garden is an exciting area of the property. With space to really live out “the good life” it even has room to keep chickens, at the end there is a good sized vegetable plot which is just waiting to be brought back to life. The green fingered among you will love it.

4 Russell Place is a special property, it's welcoming nature, homely feel, charm, character and space really make it stand out. We would encourage anyone looking to move home to arrange a viewing on this property to appreciate its unique and adaptable nature.

The Village

Cross Houses is the largest village in the parish of Berrington. It is serviced by the busy shop/post office/petrol station and the popular public house The Bell, as well as a thriving Community Centre, Brompton Cookery School, a play park, and is also surrounded by beautiful countryside, perfect for anyone who likes the outdoors, walks or bike rides . The village also operates bus services for primary and secondary school attendance. Located close to Shrewsbury town centre with regular bus routes, you could not be more conveniently located.

The Towns

Around 3000 people enjoy living in the quintessential English town of Much Wenlock. Situated between Shrewsbury and Bridgnorth this medieval Town is one of the jewels in Shropshire’s Crown. Feeling more like a village than a town, Much Wenlock is a throwback to days gone by, with a friendly and welcoming community you will instantly feel at home. Far from being a quiet backwater you will find this to be a vibrant town with a host of activities and events being hosted throughout the year. Having been a market town for over 700 years there is a rich heritage of independent retailers and specialist shops for you to explore as well as mile after mile of beautiful countryside to lose yourself in. Much Wenlock is a truly remarkable town which offers a lifestyle coveted by many and sought after universally.

Shrewsbury, the birth place of Charles Darwin, is a vibrant and lively town with a very cosmopolitan yet traditional atmosphere. The town’s 660 listed buildings are complimented by a host of trendy and sophisticated bars and restaurants, the medieval streets do however still retain many classic public houses and dining establishments. Built on the River Severn the town hosts the annual Shrewsbury Flower Show which is one of the largest and oldest horticultural shows in the country attracting over 100,000 visitors. Home to 4 shopping centres, 2 significant retail parks and countless independent retailers the town is an excellent place to enjoy some retail therapy. If you prefer to spend your time soaking up a little more culture the Theatre Severn provides many varied productions and entertainment, or perhaps a visit to the Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery or Shrewsbury Castle would be more fitting. Other places of note are ‘The Quarry’ a 29 acre riverside park, the largely unchanged Medieval Market place, Shrewsbury Abbey, the 9 bridges crossing the river Severn most notably the English and Welsh bridges, the Lord Hill’s Column – the largest free-standing Doric column in the world and the Shropshire Agricultural Showground which hosts one of the county’s most important agricultural shows. The town has many sporting and recreational facilities including Shrewsbury Town Football Club, who play their home games at the purpose built New Meadow stadium, Shrewsbury Rugby Club, Shrewsbury Rowing Club and Shrewsbury Motorcross Club to name but a few. There are also a number of popular golf clubs in and around the town, a good selection of Gymnasiums and Health Clubs and a thriving running scene.
