There are so many aspects to consider when buying a new build home, not least the location. Proving to be one of the most desirable places to move to in the West Midlands, we have taken a look at some of the reasons why you should consider buying a new build home in Shropshire.
Shropshire, a beautiful county made up of 25% countryside, is an idyllic location for homebuyer’s looking for the perfect blend of rural and urban living – you can enjoy a countryside lifestyle without having to worry about the cost of renovating an older property.

When you’re not soaking up the sublime countryside views, there are plenty of towns to explore when you own a new build property in Shropshire.
