A Substantial Detached Period Property Situated In One Of Ledbury's Most Sought After Residential Areas With Beautifully Presented Characterful Accommodation Comprising Five Bedrooms, Four Reception Rooms, Useful Outbuildings And A Detached Double Garage In Well Established Grounds Approaching Three Quarters Of An Acre. Internal Inspection Highly Recommended.

Location & Description

Ledbury is a thriving and expanding town which has a range of local facilities and amenities including shops, schools, churches, restaurants, theatre, doctors surgeries, community hospital and a mainline railway station, with direct links to Hereford, Worcester, Birmingham New Street, Oxford, Reading and London Paddington. The cities of Hereford, Worcester and Gloucester are all approximately 16 miles distant with the M50 motorway available approximately 4 miles to the south of the town.

Dating back to the early 1800's, The Conigree formed part of the renowned Biddulph Estate and was occupied by Lord Biddulph himself who was a very prominent figure within the town. There are several distinguishing features of The Conigree that are illustrative of the Biddulph Estate, one of which is the striking fishtail tiles that give the house its notable façade. Steeped in history, the house retains a number of original period features including cornicing and picture rails, beautiful stripped internal doors, high skirtings and some particularly striking reclaimed fireplaces. The house has been a much loved family home for over 30 years for the present vendor and this is evident in the overwhelming feeling of warmth, which greets you as soon as you arrive. On the ground floor an enclosed porch leads to the main entrance hall off which there are doors to the dining room with a beautiful bay window and to the well equipped breakfast kitchen with adjoining utility room. The entrance hall opens into the snug, which enjoys a sunny South facing aspect with views across the garden and a feature wood burning stove. A door leads into the drawing room, which is beautifully appointed with a corniced ceiling and a striking ornate fireplace. An inner hall gives access to the study, which was originally a second kitchen, and to a downstairs cloakroom. It is worth noting that both of these rooms have original quarry floor tiles, which extend into the inner hall and entrance hall but are currently concealed by the carpet. On the first floor a bright and airy landing leads to five bedrooms, with the principle three enjoying a wonderful South facing aspect with views across the garden and toward Marcle Ridge. There is also a large family bathroom, shower room and separate cloakroom. One of the great strengths of The Conigree is its elevated position conveniently situated in one of Ledbury's most sought after residential areas. The house offers a well balanced blend of town and country living as it is within short walking distance to the town centre and is on the edge of woodland belonging to the Biddulph Estate and leased to the Forestry Commission. The grounds of The Conigree are well established and extend to approximately THREE QUARTERS OF AN ACRE comprising two large terraces laid to lawn with some particularly fine trees. With so much on offer an internal inspection is highly recommended to appreciate this truly wonderful position. The accommodation with approximate dimensions is as follows:
