Own a Little Piece of History in East Caste Street, Bridgnorth

House-hunters across Shropshire have the chance to snap up their own piece of history after a former residence of renowned engineer Thomas Telford hit the local property market.

Estate agent Nock Deighton is inviting offers on the Grade II Listed Eastcliffe, on East Caste Street in Bridgnorth, a spectacular three-floor house that Telford is believed to have lived in whilst designing the town's St Mary Magdalene Church in the 1790s.

The picturesque property, open to offers in the region of £650,000, provides breathtaking views across the town and over the nearby River Severn, and incorporates seven bedrooms three en-suite a farmhouse-style kitchen, an imposing entrance hall, three cellar rooms, and a 23 ft drawing room on the first floor.

Michael Nettleton, Director of Nock Deighton, commented: Thomas Telford lived in the house during his time as Surveyor of Public Works in Shropshire in the late 18th century, and it was in this period when he came up with the innovative design for Bridgnorth's Parish Church, which is aligned north to south, rather than the more conventional west to east.

A fitting home for such a world-famous architect and engineer as Telford, Eastcliffe combines a practical town centre location with remarkable views to the rear, where a gravelled courtyard leads out to a garden and decked sun terrace.
