Welcome to one of Whitchurch's best kept secrets!

There is many a person who whizzes up and down Smallbrook Road without giving a second thought to what lies beyond the unadopted road (almost opposite Jubilee Park). Well, read on and all will be revealed....

Smallbrook Buildings were reputedly constructed around 1820 and were originally used as a silk mill, then as warehousing alongside the (former) canal and powered by a steam engine!

History lesson over and fast forward almost 200 years….

What we see today is a row of 9 terraced houses, pleasantly tucked away in a quiet backwater. People like living here, hence these homes rarely come onto the market and it is why a lot of folk have no idea of their existence.

‘Location’ in the property market is everything and this of course is the case here, as it is particularly well place for access into the town centre. Those travelling by car will appreciate swift access to the bypass for nearby towns in Shropshire, Cheshire and North Wales.

Apart from its excellent location, this particular property benefits from high ceilings with exposed (and very sturdy) ceiling beams and incredibly thick walls. The windows and doors have been replaced with uPVC double glazed units and there is gas central heating. The steam engine has long since gone and mod cons now include mains electricity - luxury!!

The comfortable sitting room has a cast iron burning stove and the kitchen/diner has been updated to incorporate a range of wall and base units. Industrial strength floorboards have been exposed upstairs and the large main bedroom has built-in wardrobes and storage cupboards. The modern shower room has a large shower enclosure with rainfall shower over.

Outside, the rear garden backs onto bungalows, so it is not overlooked and it has a lovely bamboo hedge. To the front, there is off-road parking for several cars and the raised garden has been landscaped for ease of maintenance with a seating area and patio/drying area and flower borders.
