A house of stature and dating back in part to about 1750 and owned by Mr Deighton a pharmacist within the town, who was also a Borough Magistrate. As soon as you walk in to this house, you immediately appreciate the grandeur of the property and the abundance of period features. The Hollies has been meticulously and thoughtfully restored and a real treat for lovers of period property with many fine features that include exposed wooden floor boards, picture rails, sash windows with shutters and stunning fireplaces, to name but a few. An extremely well-appointed four floor town house with five bedrooms, family bathroom and two ensuites and having a sitting room, dining room and study downstairs and a first-floor drawing room which takes full advantage of views out across the large private gardens to the rear. The glorious gardens are an unexpected hidden gem due to their size right in the middle of town, along with off road parking which is a premium.

Located on a quiet street just off the centre of historic Bridgnorth in High Town. Bridgnorth, set on the banks of the River Severn which divides the town in to two and originally linked by the Victorian funicular railway and the "Donkey Steps", hence High Town and Low Town, was once a renowned busy fishing port. The bustling town has the Castle remnants, the ancient Cartway leading down to the Quayside, the cliffs and caves of Lavington Gardens, Severn Park and the Seven Valley Railway, as well as good local shopping, amenities and recreational facilities and still has Antique and local produce markets. The larger centres of Telford, Kidderminster, Wolverhampton and the Black Country, also with good road and rail links, are some 12.5, 14.3 and 14.9 miles away, respectively.

The House
The main entrance is approached from St Mary's Street up stone steps to the front door, with a driveway to the right of the house leading up to the triple carport and parking area. The beautiful entrance hall with exposed floor boards and ornate staircase has tactile oak doors leading to various rooms. The first of which is to a refined sitting room, having two pairs of French doors with shutters that lead out to the sun terrace and a beautiful ornate fireplace, a lovely room for entertaining.

The charming dining room has an inglenook fireplace with inset Stovax wood burner, which has fitted cupboards with display shelves either side of the fireplace and terracotta floor tiles, as, in years gone by, this room would have been the front kitchen used for cooking with the back kitchen behind which is the current one. The kitchen has painted wooden units with sink and integrated dish washer along with a free-standing dresser and central island. Another Inglenook with inset Rangemaster with 6 ring gas hob and electric ovens, exposed ceiling timbers, exterior door out to the drive and a patented servants door back in to the hall.

Off the hall, the cellar below houses the gas fired central heating boiler and water tank and a side hall with red and black terracotta floor tiles has a WC and a side door to the garden. To the rear of the main hall can be found a butler's pantry, the laundry and study with corner fireplace, as well as a rear glazed porch with doors out to the rear garden.

On the first floor, the elegant drawing room enjoys some wonderful outlooks to the garden through some impressive sized windows, one of which has steps out down to the garden. This room also has a wonderful Gothic 1880 Marble fireplace. Also on this floor, is the family bathroom with a roll top bath, corner shower cubicle, WC and hand basin, a linen cupboard and bedroom five makes an ideal dressing room at the rear with some built in open fronted wardrobes and storage. To the front of the house, the master bedroom with steps down to a good sized ensuite which has a corner shower and a roll top bath. The other bedroom here is currently being used as a library and has book shelves and a fireplace with an 1840's Coalbrookdale grate and 1790's surround. The door on this room we understand dates back to circa 1750 and has hand wrought hinges on, which can also be seen on some of the other internal doors in the house.

A second ornate wooden staircase leads up to a landing with roof top views and two further bedrooms, both with pretty Victorian fireplaces, one with a hand basin and the other with an ensuite shower room.

Outside
Outside, the gardens have steps up from the sun terrace to the rear of the sitting room and meandering brick paths which pass effortlessly around lawns and sun terraces, into an amenity area with garden store and compost frame and on to a secluded sun terrace before winding in and out of trees and shrub borders, under a Rose arch and back on to the lawn.

Amongst the features of the garden is a spectacular Copper Beech and an ornamental pond with Victorian cast-iron fountain, as well as fruit trees. The drive leads up the side of the house to a parking area and open fronted car port at the rear which easily parks three vehicles, behind here is a workshop having electric and light.
