Situated near to the centre of the historic town of Shrewsbury, Meole Cottage and coach house is an elegant home with Queen Anne, Georgian and Victorian origins. The property retains a wealth of original charm and features including sash windows, wooden floors and handsome fireplaces throughout. The existing owners have been in residence for some 30 years and have undertaken many beneficial improvements.
The well centered ground floor accommodation flows from a welcoming reception hall with quarry tiled floor and French doors to the gardens. Adjacent are the two primary reception rooms; a sitting room with inglenook fireplace surrounding a Clearview stove, and a spacious drawing room, found in the Georgian extension, with wooden floor, open fireplace and full-height bay windows allowing access to the grounds and superb views. Across the central hallway is a generous dual aspect dining room with a further full-height bay window. A Victorian garden room is located on the Western gable. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a large kitchen/breakfast room with a range of solid wood units, integrated appliances and a neighboring utility room. Stairs from the central hallway lead down to three large cellar rooms which were used as munition bunkers during World War 2, when the house was utilised as an area headquarters.
The first floor accommodation comprises of a large master bedroom with fantastic views over the grounds towards the Reabrook and an en suite bathroom with freestanding cast iron bath and separate shower. There are two further double bedrooms, both with fireplaces and a family bathroom with separate W.C.

The Coach House benefits from it’s own access and a low-maintenance gravelled courtyard garden, with delightful views over the grounds of the main house. This building could, subject to the necessary permissions, provide an excellent home office, holiday let unit or the option for multi-generational living.

Being walled in part, the grounds give an exceptional level of privacy for the house, with an abundance of mature trees and shrubs. There are a number of terraced areas, formal lawns and a productive kitchen garden. The Reabrook passes along the southern boundary, giving a picturesque environment.
