This property is one of character, built in 1888 and according to the previous owners it was originally a 'Squatters Cottage' - a single storey building built in local stone. It consisted of 2 rooms. Evidence still remains of the original thick walls, keeping the property cool in extremely hot weather and warm in winter, with the walls retaining heat. Squatters Cottages re peculiar to the Ironbridge and Coalbrookdale area, their residents worked in the coal fields during the Industrial Revolution.

The property is situated in the village of Horsehay on the outskirts of Dawley. The village has its own grocery shop, a post office, Village hall & bowling green, and two excellent public houses, and church.

There is an extensive area for growing vegetables and fruit. The garden also contains a potting shed and adjoining greenhouse. Another bonus feature is the detached garden room/conservatory built on the site of the old pigsty. The garden room commands lovely views of the garden which is s delight. It has also been an excellent art studio because of the daylight it provides.

The interior of the property has also received numerous recent improvements including new modern kitchen & shower room and the development of the loft space with false floor with proper loft ladder access for extra storage space. Wood burning stoves have been installed in both the living room and dining room, which on cold winter nights provides a cozy atmosphere.
