Residential Premises, Lower Bar, Newport, Shropshire, TF10 7BJ.


Newport is a market town within North Shropshire with a population of circa 15,000. It has a long established retail core along the High Street, which connects with St Mary's Street close to the centre of the town.

Newport lies on the Shropshire and Staffordshire border approximately 8 miles north of Telford and 12 miles west of Stafford, where there is a direct train to London Euston. The county town of Shrewsbury is approximately 19 miles to the west and Birmingham city centre is 35 miles southeast via the M54 and M6 motorways.

The subject properties are both located on Lower Bar in the centre of Newport, with easy access to all local amenities.


The properties comprise three adjoining Grade II listed residential dwellings offering substantial living accommodation over three floors, with a further two-storey link house immediately to the rear.

The individual buildings are known as Roddam House, Beaumaris House and Picken House, all being of similar construction with attractive period features.

Internally, all three buildings have been divided to provide communal rooms on the ground floor and dormitory accommodation and bathrooms on the upper floors, suitable for multi-occupation.

To the rear of Roddam House is a separate three-bedroom link house of cavity brick construction accommodating a kitchen, study and sitting room on the ground floor with three bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor.

Additional land may be available by negotiation.
