Neenton, Bridgnorth, Shropshire, UK
Have you ever loved your place of work so much that you wanted to live right next door? Well, one Neenton resident has done just that.
Lying just a few miles south west of Bridgnorth, Beech Green manages to offer its residents an enviable lifestyle – idyllic countryside with beautiful views on the one hand, whilst on the other, there are good schools, shops and local amenities just a short drive away – not to mention the award winning Pheasant Inn.
Sarah Cowley first came to the picturesque village, which lies just outside Bridgnorth at the end of 2014, when she and her partner took over the reins at The Pheasant, the village local. The lovingly restored inn had been left near derelict for nine years, but is now a thriving, gastro style pub serving people from far and wide.
With a small development of houses from Floreat Homes taking shape right next-door Sarah soon decided that Neenton was exactly where she wanted to live.
As she explains:
“Neenton is such a lovely place to live and work, there’s a great local community here and I’m pleased to say The Pheasant is at the hub of that. It was this feel of village life combined with the idyllic location that made me want to make it my home.”
The Pheasant is a stunning inn dating back to the 18th century, which could be restored thanks to funding from Floreat Homes – part of the Shropshire Housing Group.
Being at the foot of Brown Clee Hill, the highest point in Shropshire, Neenton’s residents also enjoy beautiful uninterrupted views.
“The location is fantastic. We’re right at the heart of the Shropshire Hills, so it’s great for walking or cycling, but we’re also not too far from the likes of Bridgnorth, Telford and Kidderminster. The properties are lovely and finished to a very high standard and living so near to work is fantastic – I certainly don’t have to worry about a long commute.”
In keeping with the village surroundings, there are just seven properties at Beech Green. All the homes have a contemporary feel with touches such as satin chrome light switches, cream Shaker style kitchens, and luxuriously appointed bathrooms.
The homes also have an energy rating of B and include an eco-friendly, air source heat pump, which extracts heat from the outside air to warm radiators and hot water. The living rooms also have a wood-burner to add to the rural feel.
All of the properties have now been sold at Beech Green. For further information on Floreat Homes please visit www.Floreathomes.co.uk, Facebook page or view @FloreatHomes on Twitter. Also visit The Pheasant on Facebook for a taste of village life.
