The Property

Holters are delighted to offer for sale this wonderful detached 18th century townhouse which is located right in the heart of Bishops Castle. Run as a Guest House since 1946, the property now offers self catering accommodation in this popular tourist destination. Whilst the property could be bought to use in the same vein, equally it could be a fabulous family home, in fact it could easily be both. Whatever the reason for purchase, one lucky buyer will be the proud new owner of one of the most eye catching properties in this beautiful market town.

Upon arrival the first thing you will notice is the charming street scene, an array of period properties and the historic church make for a lovely setting. Outside, 7 Church Street has ample off road parking for multiple vehicles, a range of small outbuildings and an outside WC, as well as a delightful tiered garden, which is a real suntrap, weather permitting of course. Speaking of sunshine, it is worth noting that the property has solar panels on the rear which supplements the hot water supply.

Offering generous accommodation set over three floors, not including the very useful cellar, this substantial property has all the space you could ask for. On the ground floor you will find three reception rooms, all of which are well proportioned and interchangeable to suit your lifestyle. Period features such as fireplaces and exposed beams are found throughout and give a sense of the history of the property. To the rear of the property is the breakfast kitchen which is fitted with an array of matching wall and base units and has space for all the modern appliances and a dining table and chairs. To the far end is the first of seven bedrooms, which is complete with an en-suite shower room.

The first floor is made up of four further double bedrooms and three en-suite shower rooms, one of which serves two of the bedrooms. Also on the first floor is the useful laundry room which houses the central heating boiler, hot water cylinder and has space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer. Completing the accommodation are two further double bedrooms on the second floor, both of which also have en-suite shower rooms.

The Town

Surrounded by the beautiful and unspoiled Shropshire Hills and countryside you will find the small market town of Bishops Castle, which was listed in the Sunday Times 'Best Places to Live'. Packed full of amenities, this quirky, individual and popular town has many things to offer to couples, families and people looking to retire. Bishops Castle is an all-rounder with something to suit everyone. The town has a natural draw for musicians, artists, crafters and photographers, so there are often a variety of events and entertainment that take place to reflect this. From blues and roots festivals, to classical concerts at the nearby Walcot Hall. A summer carnival will keep the youngsters entertained, and there are also two ale trails for the beer connoisseur. In day to day living terms the town offers all the convenience you would need of, three supermarkets, a high street bank, clothes shops, a post office, a butcher, a deli, a bookshop, cafes, restaurants, coffee shops, and pubs. If you have friends visiting there will be plenty to show them, in the form of the local museum, frequent evening entertainment, two breweries including the countries oldest licenced brewery that also offers tours, bed and breakfasts and a hotel to ease any accommodation concerns. If sports are more your thing, there is a leisure centre, a football team, a rugby team, a lawn tennis club, a bowling club and a cricket team. Bishops Castle also has a primary school and a secondary school with a 6th form college, a medical centre, dentists, hairdressers and beauticians. Bishops Castle is 20 miles from Ludlow, 21 miles away from Shrewsbury, 13 miles away from Church Stretton and 6 miles away from Clun.
