A beautifully updated period house, situated within walking distance of Shrewsbury town centre, with a private gravel driveway.
14 Berwick Road is an absolutely beautiful house which was built in the 1880's, and underwent extensive renovation and refurbishment in 2017, by the current owners. The house is extremely inviting with a wonderful feel and offers a fabulous lifestyle. The décor compliments the house beautifully.
The front door, featuring original stained glass, opens into the carpeted reception hall dominated by the original oak staircase. The reception hall provides access to the beautiful library which has large sash windows with café style shutters and an original working fireplace with very pretty ornate tiles. The drawing room, situated to the rear of the house has a wonderful outlook over the garden and French doors opening onto the patio along with an open fireplace.
The modern kitchen has a wonderful exposed brick inglenook with an integrated induction hob and a separate integrated oven. There is parquet oak flooring and wooden base units with Silestone worktops and a Belfast sink. The dining room leads off the kitchen, with fitted units and views overlooking the garden. A door leads outside to an enclosed utility area and a further door opens into the garden.
On the first floor is the principal bedroom, with large sash windows and café style shutters, with an adjacent nursery bedroom, currently used as a dressing room. There is also a family bathroom and a further double bedroom with garden views on this level. A solid oak staircase leads to the second floor where there are two further double bedrooms, both with spectacular views over Shrewsbury and the Shropshire Hills, and one with an original Victorian oculus window. The stylish family bathroom on this top floor sports a large bath with garden views and a separate walk-in glass shower.
14 Berwick Road has a wonderful rear walled garden which was created for the current owners by award-winning garden designer, Jane Pearson. There is a patio seating area, which may be accessed off the drawing room, or from the side of the house and a further seating area and al fresco dining area at the top of the garden near the summer house.
Raised beds and a lavender edged pathway adds colour and substance to the beautiful garden along with a central lawn and the modern summer house which has bi-folding doors, electricity and WiFi, which feeds from the main house. There is an ornamental cherry tree, holly tree, pear tree and a BBQ area. The garden offers privacy and a wonderful lifestyle.
