The four bedroom detached Shrewsbury is a solid and substantial family home that makes a real statement, from the craftsmanship of the Arts and Crafts inspired architecture to the quality of the finish throughout.
The flexible first floor comprises four bedrooms, two doubles and two singles, allowing space for a kids’ playroom or games room for smaller families, or even a home office upstairs. The master bedroom benefits from an en-suite shower room, with the family bathroom located between bedrooms two and three.
Downstairs has a superbly appointed open plan kitchen / dining room, with designer units and worktops and top quality integrated appliances, some of which are stored in the separate utility room, from which the downstairs cloaks can also be accessed. Double French doors open out from the dining area to the garden and there is also external access via the utility room. The remainder of the ground floor is split between the large lounge and the integral single garage. Outside, the porch and garage entrance are roofed.
Square and solid, yet flexible and family friendly, the Shrewsbury is a home that will adapt to your changing needs for years to come.

Both schools are just a short drive away, or you can leave the car and enjoy a morning walk together.
Older pupils are even luckier, with the ‘good’ rated and highly popular Holmfirth High School just a few minutes walk away from the development across the school fields.
