Nick Tart are proud to offer for sale this beautifully presented, completely renovated Grade II Listed cottage in one of Bridgnorth's most desirable locations. Dating back to circa 1640 the property has been restored to its former glory by its current owners and as such is oozing character and period charm. With a wealth of exposed beams and trusses The Old Bakehouse has a rich history and is believed to have the original fire pit in its cellar which would have formed part of the baking process, alongside the three interconnected fireplaces which separate the sitting and dining rooms. Previous owners of this unique property include Mr Desmond Perritt, a former London High Court Judge and teacher at Gordonstoun School, whilst his wife was friends and worked for Queen Elizabeth II, believed to have held a title.
Situated near the bottom of Cartway, having a wonderful outlook to the front and facing Bishop Percy's House (Grade I Listed and built in 1580) the river can be seen from the top two floors. Upon entering the property the potential viewer will find the sitting room to the front with a period style fireplace complete with ornate tiling and an inset multi-fuel burner, a bespoke gate opens to the dining room which again has a fireplace incorporating an open fire, understairs storage and access to the cellar (cleverly accessed by way of a hatch in some steps). Finally to the ground floor is a contemporary kitchen with a host of storage options, space and facility for appliances. The first floor has a landing area which gives access to a spacious split-level double bedroom to the rear with dressing area and several built in wardrobes, a further double bedroom is also on offer to the front - again with built in wardrobes - completing this floor we have shower room with window seating. To the second floor there is a large landing area which could be used as a study/office area, double bedroom (again with fitted wardrobes) and the bathroom.
Having a pretty, low maintenance garden to the rear with a sandstone feature, established plants and shrubs, potting shed and circular sun terrace (the garden can be accessed via a passageway which is shared with number 36).
A truly charming property which has to be seen to be appreciated, in a most convenient town centre location, impeccably restored and maintained by its current owners.
