The historical town of Ironbridge nestles in the Severn Gorge which forms one of the most striking and distinctive landscapes in England with the River Severn running between the steep and wooded slopes of the Severn Gorge. The heart of the industrial revolution and now a World Heritage Site, the town is steeped in industrial history and is visited by many tourists for the unique museums and the world’s first Iron Bridge cast in 1779. The town offers facilities such as Post Office, chemist, hairdressers, restaurants, pubs, and near to the property is a good local primary school and doctors surgery.

Nearby are the riverside parklands with colourful gardens and walks along the riverbank.
Easy commuting to Telford centre approx. 6 miles, Shrewsbury approx. 15 miles, Wolverhampton 16 miles. Telford is well placed for rail and motorway links connecting to national networks.

The main property has only ever had one owner who built the property for him and his wife back in the late 1950's. As you can imagine he created a unique property that is much loved by the family. Over the years improvements were made including adding of a dining room and then a self-contained annex.

The property is approached via a concrete drive leading up to a garage and parking area. From here steps lead through the hard landscaping which has a variety of beds to the main property entrance and Annex. To the side a path has been created that runs at the back of the garage and up the side of the garden creating a more gentle access.

The main bungalow offers the following accommodation, a generous lounge on the front which has a large picture window to take advantage of the impressive views, two bedrooms and family bathroom. At the rear is the kitchen which has a door through to the dining room and finally a porch at the rear giving access to the rear garden.

The self-contained annex offers flexibility and could be used for visitors accommodation, Airbnb or a door knocked through to create a more substantial home. The accommodation includes an entrance hall, family bathroom, kitchen and two further rooms to be used either as bedrooms or reception rooms.

The property sits on a generous plot, approx. a 1/3 of an acre. Due to its elevated position it is tiered however to the rear of the plot it does flatten out. Having been landscaped previously and with an abundance of mature planting this is a lovely garden benefiting from great views out over the gorge.

From Ironbridge proceed along the Wharfage, cross over the mini roundabout adjacent to the Merrythought teddy bear emporium, along Buildwas Road The Uplands lies on the right hand side. Sat Nav: TF8 7DBJ
