Generous proportions allow a fabulous open plan kitchen family room, utility, central dining room which is currently a games room and has a pool table taking centre stage. Large entrance hall, stunning views from the sitting room, downstairs master bedroom with ensuite.

Astbury, is a rural community located 1.7m from the village of Eardington which has a village hall and nature reserve and 3.5 m from Bridgnorth. Set on the banks of the River Severn which divides the town in to two and originally linked by the Victorian funicular railway and the “Donkey Steps”, hence High Town and Low Town, was once a renowned busy fishing port. The bustling town has the Castle remnants, the ancient Cartway leading down to the Quayside, the cliffs and caves of Lavington Gardens, Severn Park and the Seven Valley Railway. Good local shopping, amenities and recreational facilities can be found plus regular Antique and local produce markets. The larger centres of Shrewsbury and Kidderminster, also with good road and rail links to Birmingham and London, are some 25.3 and 15.7 miles away, respectively.
