Tall Trees is found on a peaceful side lane on the outskirts of the thriving county town of Shrewsbury and sits in a secluded position to the rear of a substantial plot.

Whilst this property has many of the benefits of rural living, including fantastic views and access to open countryside, Bicton is only two miles north-west of the historic market town of Shrewsbury, which boasts 660 listed buildings and is a mecca for shoppers and tourists alike.  The charming village of Bicton has the benefit of a small range of facilities including a primary school, church and village hall and a petrol station with shop.

The suburb village of Bicton Heath is just half a mile away and provides a larger range of facilities including small supermarket, chemist, school and public houses and a park and ride service to Shrewsbury town centre.

The area is extremely well served educationally with an excellent selection of both primary and secondary state schools and a well reputed range of private schools including Shrewsbury School and Shrewsbury High School.

The nearby A5 offers commuter links both north to Oswestry, Chester and beyond and south via the M54 motorway to Telford, Birmingham and London. Mainline rail services are available from Shrewsbury town centre and there are several international airports within 70 miles.

As the gateway to Wales, the stunning local countryside offers endless walking opportunities and there is a plethora of countryside and other pastime pursuits available in the vicinity.  For those looking for a ‘town house’ in the country, Tall Trees is the perfect property.

Tall Trees has been unoccupied for a number of years and as such would benefit from a scheme of improvement works to return this charming property to its former glory. However there is little doubt that with some work the property could be restored to its rightful condition as a Victorian gentleman's residence.

The current accommodation includes a large sitting room which runs the full width of the property and has dual aspect windows and a fireplace. To the other side of the hallway is a dining room with quarry tile floor and door leading through to the kitchen. The kitchen is fitted with a range of units with space for appliances.

There are three spacious bedrooms to the first floor served by a family bathroom in addition to a large landing area which would be well suited as a study or office area.

At the rear of the house are several small domestic outbuildings including an outside WC and a store area which could potentially be incorporated in to the footprint of the house to give further living space.

In addition there is a brick garage and workshop to the side of the house. Whilst this could continue to be utilised for its current function, it could equally, subject to the necessary planning permissions, be altered to provide office or studio space for those wishing to work from home.

The property sits to the rear of a substantial plot with extensive gardens to the front and side and is well screened from the road by mature trees and bushes. A box hedge drive leads to the front of this lovely property.

The majority of the garden is grass and could be landscaped and developed to provide stunning country gardens with the  garden to the side being ideal for cultivation to a vegetable patch and orchard or tranquil seating area.

Given the extensive size of the garden there may be the possibility of residential development on the site in the future subject to the necessary local authority permissions.  Neither the vendors nor their agents are able to comment on the probability of future planning consent. We would highly recommend viewing this property to appreciate the enormous scope for improvement and alteration.
