85 SANDFORD AVENUE
85 Sandford Avenue is an imposing detached residence built around 1909 and enjoys a most delightful and convenient position in a sought after area of Church Stretton. It occupies good size well established gardens on this attractive lime tree lined Avenue and is only a short distance from the town centre.
The Property has been extended to provide additional accommodation. The present owners have over more recent years completely modernised and up-dated the property which now offers either spacious accommodation for a large family, a family with dependent relatives or family members, consisting of substantial original Edwardian house with a large two bedroom annexe/self-contained single storey residence to the rear. The property therefore also has commercial potential for business use or holiday/residential letting, subject to planning consent. It has replacement double-glazed windows, separate gas heating systems and the electrics renewed.
The Main House traditionally constructed of brick under a tiled roof with upvc double glazing and gas central heating comprises reception hall, living room, sitting room, open-plan dining room/fitted kitchen, ground floor rear entrance lobby and separate wc. On the first floor there are three bedrooms, one having a dressing room and bathroom/shower room. The second floor comprises three further bedrooms, study and shower room.
The Self-Contained traditionally constructed ‘annexe’ comprises separate entrance hall/utility, living room, open-plan kitchen/diner, 2 bedrooms, large wetroom, separate wc and boiler room. There is an internal door from the inner hall to the main house.
Church Stretton lies amidst the South Shropshire Hills midway between Shrewsbury (13 miles) and Ludlow (14 miles) along the A49 road. It can claim to be one of the most beautifully situated towns in England and attracts walkers and country lovers who can also enjoy the Longmynd Hill, an area known for its natural outstanding beauty (ANOB). It is a really thriving community with societies, clubs, public houses and restaurants. It has a population of around 5,000 and being a popular market and tourist town it offers excellent shopping facilities including supermarkets. There are churches, excellent education and recreational facilities, the ‘Mayfair’ community centre together with good health care, bus and rail communications. Telford lies within easy commuting distance where the M54 gives easy access to the West Midlands and Birmingham.
Directions: From the Agents Office continue towards the A49 and proceed straight over the traffic lights eastwards towards Much Wenlock. The property is located about one third of the way up on the left hand side.
