Said to date back to the early 17th century, the Grade II listed town-house located on the southern corner of The Square in Church Stretton, offers 'great potential' and a lot of space.

Wrights Estate Agents have told perspective owners that they can choose whether to keep the home - which went on the market on Tuesday - as a residential property or convert it into a commercial building, with the building once being an inn named The Raven.

Timber framed with brink infill, the residence was extended in the 19th century, sporting painted brick that resembled the traditional Tudor timber framing from 200 years earlier.

It has a reception hall, four reception rooms, a semi-modern kitchen with spotlights, ground floor cloakroom and toilet, a landing, five bedrooms - three with en-suite bathrooms - and a regular bathroom. It boasts a lot of room with its stone and brick-build garage and storage spaces.
