The Sanctuary is a superbly appointed atmospheric Grade II listed property set in the heart of the picturesque riverside village of Newnham on Severn. Its history spans several centuries with medieval origins. It is a 15th and 16th century timber frame house with the addition of a Georgian bay window and a later kitchen. The rooms have excellent proportions and are presented to reflect the style of dwelling. The main house benefits from three large reception rooms, a kitchen/breakfast room, four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a large two roomed cellar. There is a separate, but connected two storey building, the ground floor former stable, previously used as a shop, a large first floor games room and separate study. This building could either be used for retail or potentially converted to an annex. The beautiful cottage style garden to the rear overlooks the river in a south easterly direction and enjoys sunshine for a large part of the day. A truly superb residence steeped in history but equipped for modern day living.
