The peaks around Church Stretton reminded Victorian tourists of the Swiss Alps, leading the quaint town to be dubbed 'Little Switzerland'.

The small town, surrounded by imposing hills and forested slopes, was a magnet for wealthy Victorians hoping escape the grimy hustle and bustle of the soot filled industrial cities.

Now, this character-filled property smack bang in the town centre could be snapped up for just shy of £400k.

It has a dedicated laundry room, four bedrooms - two with en suite, a shower room, two cloakrooms, spacious cellar and off road parking.

The property also boasts a garden with raised, decked terrace for al fresco dining with a side of the Shropshire Hills.

The spacious lounge is well-lit with double windows and hosts a feature fireplace with wood-burning stove surrounded by period features including coving, picture rails, wide doors and ceiling beams.

The country-style kitchen is equally generous in size offering a wealth of storage and space for a range oven in a room adorned with beams, wall panelling and wooden floorboards.

The spacious cellar, split into two large rooms, is begging for a cosy make-over, offering buyers the opportunities for a home office, snug, workshop or games room.

The picturesque town of Church Stretton offers plenty of it's own amenities and easy access to the A49 and it's own train station - the highest in Shropshire - providing direct lines to Manchester and Cardiff.
