A detached, five bedroom Victorian former ‘gentleman’s villa’ in the popular Haygate Road, at Wellington is on the market with Berrys with an asking price in excess of £425,000.
Westbourne, 80 Haygate Road is surrounded by its own garden and sheltered from the road by hedges and trees giving a quiet privacy to this town accommodation.
To our Victorian ancestors, reputation and image were all important and this gentleman’s villa with its spacious accommodation and light and airy rooms represents the splendour of this bygone era
The accommodation has been improved throughout but there is still scope to adapt further whilst retaining the property’s original character and charm, possibly creating an annexe.
The accommodation briefly comprises: entrance hall, kitchen/breakfast room, dining room, cloakroom with WC and basin, inner hall with stair leading the first floor and down to cellar, drawing room, sitting room, family room (annexe) with bedroom/study off, bathroom and utility room.
On the first floor there is a master bedroom with bay window and ensuite bathroom plus three further bedrooms and a family bathroom. Stairs from the landing lead to a second floor bedroom which overlooks the rear garden.
“This is a delightful Victorian house with high ceilings and character features offering plenty of accommodation for all the family,” said Philip Robinson, residential agency manager with Berrys at Shrewsbury.
“Haygate Road is a popular area of Wellington and the house is in a pleasant residential setting convenient for the town of Wellington itself and also to the motorway network.”
Wellington is well served with shops and leisure and sports facilities and there is an excellent range of schools and colleges in the area including Thomas Telford School, Telford College of Arts and Technology, New College and independent schools The Old Hall and Wrekin College.
