Sitting at the heart of the Ironbridge Gorge, a UNESCO World Heritage Site located in idyllic Shropshire, this charming 5-bedroom property boasts an enviable position close to the River Severn in historic Coalport. A large cottage occupying around 8.5 acres of land, the property is registered as a smallholding and represents a rare opportunity to own a unique property in an outstanding Conservation Area. This substantial detached cottage originally served as the coach house and stables for the home of the Anstice family, who were integral in developing the world-beating 18th and 19th century industry that the Gorge is now synonymous with. This industrial past has now given way to a peaceful ambience on the banks of the river, surrounded by Shropshire’s glorious countryside. With extensive, gated forecourt parking, the house sits beside numerous separate paddocks ideal for livestock and has been in use as a smallholding for many years, already having a henhouse, animal shelters, full perimeter fencing, and woodland. The house itself has been tirelessly renovated to a high standard using exceptional reclaimed materials, including stained glass windows (even in the henhouse!), York stone flooring, gothic internal timbers, and decorative stone pieces, creating an entirely unique home with incredible character. With a very large, sheltered oak porch serving as an outdoor boot-room, the house boasts a welcoming dining hall with Victorian range, an impeccably furnished breakfast kitchen arranged around a wood-burning stove, a very large utility, and a cosy yet spacious snug benefitting from a second wood-burner. In addition, the house enjoys an entertainment complex with a stunning spa room and impressive hydropool, wet room, fully fitted oak bar, and a games room having bi-folding doors to the sunny, enclosed inner courtyard. The layout of the property, with two staircases and three entry points across both floors, has considerable potential and could allow for holiday lets, home business use, or the creation of a substantial self-contained annex, already having a very attractive second kitchen. In total, the house provides five impressive double bedrooms including a guest suite, and two separate bathrooms. The luxuriously spacious master bedroom boasts its own beautiful helical staircase and a walk-in wardrobe, conveniently positioned over the wet room. A sizeable south-facing balcony offers a relaxing spot from which to enjoy the views across the property’s own land. In addition to the attached land, the house boasts a lovely rear garden with brick-built store and a fruitful orchard, perfect for a more self-sufficient lifestyle combined with incredible travel links and proximity to Telford, Birmingham, Wolverhampton, and Shrewsbury.
