Property Reference



1-4 Drayton Road, Shawbury, Shrewsbury, Shropshire, SY4 4NZ.


The property is located in the small commuter village of Shawbury in North Shropshire, approximately 5 miles northeast of Shrewsbury and 8 miles northwest of Telford. Shawbury straddles the A54 between Shrewsbury and Market Drayton, which in turn leads to the A5/M54 motorway via the A49.

The property itself is situated in the centre of the village with vehicular access off Oak Drive, which leads to the car parking area to the rear of the building. The property has a right of way over Oak Drive, which is accessed via Wem Road (B5063).

1-4 Drayton Road enjoys a prominent roadside location fronting onto the A53 trunk road and is directly opposite the local Co-operative store. It immediately adjoins another block of shops to the west, including Mammoth Fast Food take-away and a local bakery, with The Elephant & Castle public house and car park just beyond.

There are pedestrian accesses leading to the rear of the property to either side of the building, over which there are public rights of way.

There is limited on-street car parking to the front of the building.


The property comprises a detached two-storey commercial building providing a parade of 4 ground floor retail units with 2 first floor residential flats. The building sits on a site area of circa 0.11 acres (0.05 hectares) including a private car park to the rear with space for 10 cars.

Each shop is self-contained, having a large glazed display frontage and incorporating a basic retail area to the front with a store/office and WC facilities to the rear. Current occupiers include a well established fish and chip shop, hairdressing salon and craft shop.

The first floor flats are accessed from the rear of the building, with each flat having its own entrance at ground floor level with a central landing on the first floor. The accommodation consists of a lounge, kitchen diner, 3 bedrooms and a bathroom.

There are also 5 lock-up garages to the rear of the main building, essentially within the car parking area, which are rented out separately for storage.
