Go with the flow – marketing Pimley Island06/12/21
At Forge Property Consultants, we are involved with the marketing and maintenance of all kinds of different properties and spaces. Many of our clients are based in the countryside and at rural locations, and their unusual properties can sometimes be difficult to access. But our instruction to market Pimley Island has brought a whole new meaning to the terms ‘lifestyle’ and ‘uniqueness’.
A floating asset
We have been instructed to market for sale an island in the heart of Shropshire. Pimley Island is approximately 2.3 acres and lies to the north east of the beautiful market town of Shrewsbury. The island lies in the middle of the River Severn and can be accessed by boat, which certainly gives you privacy. The details describe it as ‘Freehold’ and ‘Waterfront’ and a ‘once in a lifetime opportunity’. It’s close to the A49 for ease of accessibility from anywhere in the county and lies to the rear of the country house Pimley Manor. It’s also close to the Golf Driving Range, Shrewsbury Sports Village and many other recreational activities, and the town of Shrewsbury itself, which is steeped in culture and history.
Ownership of the island certainly lends itself to someone who enjoys the outdoor lifestyle, with opportunities for fishing, but also to enjoy local wildlife and conservation. The island is covered in trees and has quiet farmland to either side on the opposite riverbanks. Needless to say, with a water-worthy craft required to access the island, viewings are strictly by appointment only.
The quiet life
Usually when we are promoting a property or piece of land, we are highlighting the features and opportunities – its best aspects that will appeal to prospective buyers. This can include nearby amenities, such as schools or shops, or points of local interest. But how do we describe such a unique opportunity to prospective buyers? It is ideal for those who love the great outdoors to enjoy spending time in an ideal setting in the heart of the English countryside.
In promoting Pimley Island, we are focusing on the opportunities this unique property offers. If you love fishing for example, what could be more gratifying that having your own private island to enjoy your pastime? There may also be opportunities to pitch a tent on the island for an overnight or weekend stay, and to rent out the island to other anglers, for fishing weekends on the magnificent Severn. Your very own island could be yours for £25,000.
If you are interested in buying your own island, there’s a promotional video online introduced by one of our surveyors, Andy Lowe, which gives an insight into this incredible chance and a view of Pimley Island itself.
