Spring Cottage is an individual, charming Shropshire property situated on the south bank of a pretty Gorge near Ironbridge, looking down on the River Severn. The house has been comprehensively restored and extended: the current owners have carried out a good deal of work to enlarge the house which now offers flexible living space which could be used to suit a number of lifestyles.

Accommodation comprises: sitting room, study, drawing room, kitchen/dining room, four bedrooms including the master and three bath/shower rooms (one en-suite).

Outside, a series of terraced gardens suit the terrain and provide the backdrop to many different seating areas. The finest, highest terrace offers views over the top of the house and across the gorge to mature deciduous forest and a barbecue area lies to the front of the house.

The house sits above the large Shropshire village of Ironbridge, which has an historic past, the bridge itself being a world heritage site. Shrewsbury is sixteen miles and the M54 six miles.  

The guide price is £395,000. For further information please contact Savills on 01952 239 500 or visit www.savills.co.uk.
