Tyrley Wharf, Tyrley

  • Offers in the region of £385,000


This beautiful Victorian Grade II listed home sits alongside the Shropshire Union Canal at Tyrley Wharf, only a few steps from Tyrley top lock. The house is one of a group of wharf cottages designed by Thomas Telford, and built in 1837. This stunning home enjoys several period features including quarry tiled floors and exposed ceiling beams. It has its own 23 metre private mooring at the bottom of the garden, as well as a paved terrace and a lovely spacious lawn, where you can relax and enjoy watching the passing narrowboats.

I will describe the house referring to the canal-facing side as the front of the property, with the garden to the right side. To the front is a courtyard overlooking the canal and Tyrley top lock. The house is approached from a shared driveway to the rear, which leads to a detached garage and a private parking area. The house is laid out in an L-shape and includes two gable ends facing the canal, but the rear two thirds of the building on the right, overlooking the garden, is a separate property.

The entrance porch, which doubles as a utility area, is on the far left of the property. This leads into a spacious country style kitchen breakfast room with two windows to the rear. A door from the kitchen leads to a separate dining room with a window to the side overlooking the garden, and stairs rising to the first floor. An inner hallway with its own front door and a useful downstairs cloakroom opens into a beautiful spacious lounge with a log burning fireplace. There is a window to the front, overlooking the canal, and a further window overlooking the garden to the side. French doors open out onto the terrace and the garden beyond. Finally there is access to a large cellar which is split into five rooms and spans the entire area of both this property and the neighbouring property.

On the first floor there is a spacious dual aspect master bedroom with a window to the front, overlooking the canal, and another to the side overlooking the garden. This room benefits from a large en-suite shower room. There are two further bedrooms, a large double to the front overlooking the canal and Tyrley lock, and a smaller bedroom with a window to the rear. There is also a spacious bathroom.
