Situation
Ironbridge is a renowned and historic area nestling in The Severn Gorge which forms one of the most striking and distinctive landscapes in England, with a charming town centre adjoining the River Severn and the slopes of The Gorge combining a delightful mix of imposing, detached period residences mingling with charming cottages up the hillside.  This remarkable area was at the heart of the Industrial Revolution and became world famous in 1779 when the world’s first iron bridge was constructed over the River Severn and from which the town derives its name.  It is steeped in the industrial heritage of the area with local museums forming part of the World Heritage Site and is now recognised as a premier tourist area.  Some five miles to the north is the excellent range of shopping and recreational facilities at Telford town centre, together with the railway station and M54.
Wesley Road is pleasantly situated on the eastern fringe of Ironbridge towards Coalport, being located high on the slopes of The Gorge and set in semi-rural surroundings with a pleasant mix of predominantly 19th century period cottage properties.

 

The property
Is a well known landmark as you proceed into Ironbridge for its bell tower as you proceed down Madeley Hill.   The accommodation is surprisingly spacious comprising a large open vestibule with a door leading to the hallway.  The hallway gives access to the downstairs cloakroom/wc and open plan kitchen/diner.

 

On the first floor there is a large living room area with steps leading to an additional snug/study area; a beautiful timber door leads to the old bell tower.

 

A staircase continues to the second floor where there are two bedrooms and family bathroom.  The master bedroom is a particular feature to the property having beautiful exposed beams and exposed brick work. 

Outside
The property has the benefit of a garage (middle one within a block of three).  There is also a garden area situated almost adjacent to the property which has a pavioured footpath, raised beds and steps leading down to a large open canopy.  Immediately adjacent to the other side of the footpath there is gated access leading to an additional tiered garden area which has a number of decorative gravelled areas and inset shrubs and trees.

 

How to get there – from Ironbridge proceed up Madeley Hill where the bell tower can be seen on the right hand side; turn right into Jockey bank and bear right and right again into Wesley Road where the garage block is on the right and pedestrian access leads to 1b Wesley Road.
