The property occupies a lovely rural position, set well back from the road, slightly elevated with stunning farmland views, particularly towards Pontesford Hill in the distance. The property is mainly surrounded by open farmland, whilst conveniently located with easy access to the A5 about 5 minutes drive or just over 3 miles away. Shrewsbury town centre is just beyond, which includes an excellent shopping centre, social and leisure facilities. The A5 also provides access through to the M54 motorway and Telford or alternatively north to Oswestry.


Hillcrest offers a rare opportunity to acquire a modern country residence, which has been individually designed and extended to provide a beautifully presented and particularly spacious home, which is quite deceptive from an initial glance. The accommodation is tastefully laid out with a versatile design and offers a certain amount of future proofing for potentially retiring purchasers. Leading off the central reception hall is the large lounge with a lovely marble fireplace and picture window, which takes advantage of the views. There is a French door to the patio. Also off the hall is the 4th guest double bedroom with wardrobe suite and a separate shower room/guest cloaks. Central to the house is the living room, which has an open fireplace, linking through to both the conservatory and dining room. A refitted breakfast kitchen is also adjacent to the living room and offers an excellent range of appliances and comprehensive storage cabinets. All of this provides an excellent entertaining area and is further enhanced by an adjoining preparation kitchen - ideal for entertaining purposes.On the first floor the master bedroom is of an unusually large size, again extensively fitted and includes a dressing area, together with an en-suite bathroom. There are two further double bedrooms and the main family bathroom.

Integral to the house is a double garage with an adjoining utility room and separate WC, which is very handy for the gardens. These are extensive and have been laid out with large flowing lawns, well stocked shrubbery and flower beds, a lawned orchard and a separate kitchen garden, which includes a modern greenhouse and various storage sheds.

Stamp Duty Calculator

Stamp Duty Total

You usually pay Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) on increasing portions of the property price above £125,000 when you buy residential property, eg a house or flat.

There are different rules if you’re buying your first home and the purchase price is £500,000 or less.

You’ll usually have to pay 3% on top of the normal SDLT rates if buying a new residential property means you’ll own more than one.

You won’t pay the extra 3% SDLT if the property you’re buying is replacing your main residence and that has already been sold.
