Ellesmere is a historic market town located in north Shropshire at the junction of the A495 with the A528, some 15 miles north of Shrewsbury. Ellesmere has a wealth of Georgian and half timbered buildings, and together with the Mere (lake) one of nine in the vicinity, attracts many tourists including those fishing and sailing, to the area. The property lies in the town centre occupying a prominent position fronting Victoria Street, facing a large public car park.


Fullwood House is a prominent and attractive detached period property with a main building arranged over ground and two self contained upper floors and side extension over ground and first floors. Until recently the ground floor was the towns library, with multi let residential over. The property has painted rendered elevations, an attractive portico front entrance and bowed rear elevation. The property will benefit from the use of seven dedicated parking spaces to the right of the building (hatched green on the plan below)




The vacant ground floor may suit a variety of residential or commercial uses. Any proposals are subject to planning and other consents as the property is Grade 11 Listed and lies within the Ellesmere Conservation Area.

* Guide price

An indication of the seller’s current minimum acceptable price at auction. The guide price or range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to pursue a purchase. It is usual, but not always the case, that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of the auction in the light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. This guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall, or as a single price figure within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (reserve) would fall. A guide price is different to a reserve price (see separate definition). Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.

* Reserve price

The seller’s minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. The reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
