Location & Description
The property enjoys a convenient position in the hamlet of Parkway, which has a petrol garage/spa shop and is approximately a mile from the country town of Ledbury. Ledbury offers a wide 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 sixteen miles distant and the M50 motorway is available approximately four miles to the south of the town.
The Old Bakehouse is a most impressive and individual detached house, which has undergone an extensive programme of renovation and refurbishment by the current owners over the last 10 years. The house has been imaginatively redesigned with a striking three storey extension, which offers generous and versatile accommodation suitable for the dynamics of modern day family living. It is evident that much thought and consideration has gone into all that has been done so as to compliment the origins of the house with the use of bespoke solid oak joinery throughout including hardwood double glazing, internal and external doors, staircases, flooring and skirting boards. The vendors have invested heavily in many contemporary features including zoned oil fired central heating, CAT5e ethernet cabling throughout, two satellite connections and solar panels, which contribute towards the heating, hot water and electricity. Arranged over three floors, the property offers beautifully appointed and well proportioned accommodation, which could be adapted to suit a wide range of requirements. At ground floor level there is an entrance porch, which provides access to the cellar, and also leads to an L-shaped living/dining room with doors off to the kitchen and a study/playroom. French doors lead onto a decked balcony, making the most of the property's south westerly aspect with superb far reaching views. An inner hall provides access to the first and lower ground floors. The accommodation on the lower ground floor comprises a utility room, with a cloakroom off, second living room with a feature exposed brick fireplace and traditional bread oven, guest bedroom and an en suite bathroom. On the first floor a landing leads to the master bedroom, with an en suite shower room, and to two further double bedrooms and a contemporary family bathroom. Outside, a driveway leads to a generous area of parking and to a detached double garage with an adjoining workshop and large converted attic space. The grounds are predominantly laid to lawn with an attractive patio and a further large gravelled area providing additional parking. The grounds in all extend to approximately one acre. With so much to offer, an internal inspection is highly recommended to appreciate this truly individual home. The accommodation with approximate dimensions is as follows;
