Charming Georgian townhouse within the loop in Shrewsbury.
14 Belmont is an attractive, Grade II* listed townhouse which has been immaculately restored to retain its exquisite Georgian details and architectural features with a contemporary finish.
The property offers secure gated parking, an attractive landscaped garden and wonderful views.
The front door is approached via a gated courtyard which opens to the entrance hall with a flagstone floor and glass double doors opening to the dining hall with original oak floorboards.
The kitchen is well equipped with fitted cupboards and units with a granite worktop and a number of integrated Miele appliances including a gas hob and extractor, oven, microwave combination oven and dishwasher. There are wonderful oak floorboards, a Clearview multi-fuel burner and a stunning bay window with secondary glazing along with French doors opening onto the terrace.
The panelled sitting room has built in storage cupboards, a multi-fuel burner and French doors onto the terrace. There is also a WC which completes the ground floor.
The elegant staircase is a great feature of the house and worthy of note, rises to the first floor to a spacious landing with plenty of natural light and an airing cupboard. From here, the exquisite drawing room has attractive cornicing and sash windows with fine views.
On this floor are two bedrooms including a guest suite with fitted wardrobes and a further bedroom, currently used as a nursery. There is also a family shower room.
The principal bedroom suite is located on the second floor with a number of fitted wardrobes, an en suite shower room and delightful views toward the river.
There are two further bedrooms, one with built in wardrobes, a family bathroom with a separate shower and a laundry room with a sink and plumbing for a washing machine.
A fantastic feature of the house is the versatile basement which can be accessed via the main staircase or the spiral staircase in the entrance hall.
The basement currently comprises a sitting room with exposed beams, a home office with a window offering natural light, a wine store area and room currently used as storage which has potential as an additional bedroom or gym.
The property is approached to the rear via a gated access off Belmont, which leads to a private parking area with electric gates and space for two cars. There is an additional parking space situated a short distance from the property within the gated area.
The large terrace can be accessed from the kitchen or sitting room from French doors and has a wonderful Olive tree border. It is an ideal entertaining space which enjoys the sun throughout the afternoon.
Steps lead down to the garden which is mainly laid to lawn with raised beds.
Head over the English Bridge towards Shrewsbury Town Centre. Continue onto Wyle Cop turning left onto Beeches Lane. After around 0.3 miles, turn right on to Belmont. The property is found on your right hand side.

In my opinion, very few houses have the charm and elegance that 14 Belmont offers. In many ways, it is the perfect town house.Tony Morris-Eyton
