The Pink House is situated along Sandford Avenue, one of Church Stretton's most highly regarded addresses. Just a short distance from the town centre this magnificent Edwardian detached home sits in a generous plot set back from the road with a horseshoe driveway providing easy access and ample parking. Upon arriving at the property it is immediately apparent that this is a substantial building but it is not until you have completed a tour that you can appreciate the shear size and number of rooms that are on offer. The Pink House offers truly versatile accommodation which should be flexible enough to satisfy the needs of almost any family. The property also lends itself well to a variety of business opportunities and is currently listed on Airbnb and provides a very useful income.
A Storm Porch provides shelter to the entrance door, the stained glass paneling is an early indicator of the character to be found inside. The Entrance Hall has quarry tiled flooring, picture rails and moulded cornicing all features that can be found readily through out the house. The layout of the property is a classical design. Two Reception Rooms can be found to the front of the property, both are a generous size and have bay windows to the frontage. The sense of character is as obvious in these two rooms as anywhere in the house, both have the fine moudled cornicing and picure railing previously mentioned while a cast iron fireplace in one and a wood burning stove in the other provide focal points and further charm. Further into the property you will find another Reception Room to the left of the Hallway, this also has all the features of the other two, and leads through to the Guest Bedroom and Bathroom, which are currently used for Bed and Breakfast. On the opposite side of the Hall you will find the Dining Kitchen. Another sizable room the Dining Kitchen is the hub of the family home. As homely as any room I have ever been in owing much to the addition of the solid fuel 'Rayburn' which has been fitted into the fireplace and the 'Everhot' Range Cooker (available by separate negotiation). Original doors, a Belfast sink and quarry tiled flooring add to the charm. Then there is the practical side to the room such as the fitted cupboards, worktops, sink and drainer, plumbing for a dishwasher and the gas fired Worcester combination boiler adding functionality and a touch of the modern. A useful Pantry complete with shelving can be found just off the Kitchen. At the rear of the property you will find the final Reception Room, a fantastic entertaining space that you could also use for your hobbies or your business. It enjoys wonderful views out to the garden and to the hills beyond. Off the Reception Room you will also find the Utility Room.
The first floor Landing gives access to four of the Bedrooms and the Shower Room. All of a good size as you will have already come to expect it is left to the second Bedroom to provide the surprise of this floor. On the west side of the Bedroom a door opens to what can best be described as a Viewing Gallery. A glazed room that sits in an elevated position and takes in the most stunning views of the Long Mynd, on a Summer's evening you will not find many better places to relax with a glass of wine.
The second floor sadly does not hide such a spectacular secret although a useful Laundry Room off the Bathroom is not entirely expected and greatly received. The accommodation is finished with two further double bedrooms, one of which has a lovely cast iron fireplace.
Outside the proportions are generous too with a good sized garden found at the rear of the property. An impressive raised decking area which can be accessed from the house provides a nice extension into the garden. Afforded views of the magnificent surrounding hills the garden truly is a real feature of this home. Currently a productive garden with the lawns eventually giving way to vegetable plots, a Greenhouse, Summer House and the resident family of chickens it is another reason you will never tire of this wonderful property.
