Set over 197.60 square metres (2146 Sqft), this brilliantly designed four-bedroom industrial conversion, blends a rich historic iron works and modern design into an attractive family home. Originally converted by ISAAC Properties, the former Horsehay Ironworks is rich in history. In the early 1750s Abraham Darby II needed additional capacity for cast iron production, so decided to build a new furnace at Horsehay above Coalbrookdale, which at the time was little more than a farm. By 1757, pig iron had already reached 90 tons per month. In 1779 a rail link was built from the works to the Severn Wharves at Ironbridge. This is considered by many to be the world's first commercial railway. The line still operates from Spring Village station in Horsehay as the Telford Steam Railway. Most notably the plates of the SS Great Britain, the first iron ship, were made here as well as parts for cranes and bridges found all over the world.
Since the works closed in 1985, the area has since undergone regeneration works to create a lovely place for families to settle. From Horsehay Pool to the Steam Railway, the area is becoming more picturesque as the years go by.
