2 Bedroom Terraced House (Now Let)
Hills Lane, Shrewsbury, SY1 1QU
This house is in 'the loop' of Shrewsbury and, unusually for homes at this price and in the town centre, has its own small courtyard space.
The 3-storey property fronts to Rowley's Mansion and the town's short-stay car parks.
A minute's walk to the river and a few more to the theatre and Shrewsbury's lovely park. Minutes from the rail station and bus station which have regular services to many, many places.
The property fronts directly to the pavement of a quiet road which has only traffic exiting from one car park and services to very few shops.
The house itself occupies a small footprint but the three floors give it space and scope for alternative uses of rooms.
