Own a piece of History in Ironbridge

A renovated 19th century toll house is just one of a number of charming and characteristic homes ideal for first time buyers currently on the market with a local estate agent.

The Old Toll House, Coalport, on the market with Shropshire-based Nock Deighton, is a property steeped in history. Thought to have been built around the late 18th century, it comes with the original spy holes still present from when the keeper would look out for people wishing to cross the road without the payment of a toll. Original wooden beams still run through the living room roof of this treasure trove of a house, which is now open to offers from £154,950.

Thought to have been built over 200 years ago – and on the market for £119,950 – 38 Wellington Road, Coalbrookdale, has seen a raft of improvements carried out, including gas central heating, replacement windows, feature fireplace, fitted kitchen and bathroom, and has attractive gardens around the rear that overlook the Dale Valley.

On the market for £144,950, The Old Rodney, 33 The Wharfage, Ironbridge, is a large ground floor three-bedroom apartment which has been converted from a former 19thcentury pub. It comes complete with a Victorian fireplace, old bread oven, and courtyards to both the sides and rear of the apartment.

A final desirable yet affordable property that has just become available is a 19th century cottage situated in Church Road, Coalbrookdale, which overlooks the Dale Valley, Severn Gorge and beyond. It has a front garden, on-street parking and woodland to the rear, and is fully equipped with double glazing and gas central heating, with offers invited in the region of £139,950.

Michael Nettleton, Director of Nock Deighton, commented: “Shropshire continues to be one of the most sought-after locations for house-hunters, and with properties like these on the market, it’s not difficult to understand why. Not only are they beautiful buildings in their own right, but are well in the price range for those looking to take that first step on to the property ladder, or those wanting to purchase an investment property.”
