Those who drive over Welsh Bridge may not know that tucked away by Roger Parry and Ale Oli y Tu is a three-story town house that was once a wool warehouse.

But this Grade II Listed home, which has also been a hotel and renovated with a National Lottery Grant to the headquarters of the Shropshire Wildlife Trust in years gone by, is now up for sale.

It's recently been reduced too, with the owner looking for offers in excess of £700,000, giving the successful buyer an opportunity to live a stone's throw from the River Severn and amidst some of Shrewsbury's pubs, restaurants and shops in the town's conservation area.

On the first floor is an open plan living, dining room and kitchen area, described as a "truly impressive room, perfect for those who love to entertain and boasting a wealth of charm and character with exposed wall and ceiling timbers".

Both of these are tenanted and create a healthy income."
