Location & Description

Abbey House is situated in the heart of Ledbury, 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.

Abbey House is a half-timbered Grade II* listed town house thought to have been originally built for a prosperous Elizabethan merchant and is a fine example of early 17th century architecture. The property is situated in an excellent location in the heart of Ledbury with a delightful walled garden at the rear. Abbey House is a most interesting property, which offers unique and charming acommodation. The property has retained many lovely character features including extensive exposed timbering, superb fireplaces and interesting canted bay windows into the street, yet has the benefit of gas central heating and partial secondary glazing. In addition to the principal accommodation there is an intriguing annexe at the rear, which incorporates a former chapel and mezzanine gallery complete with leaded stained glass windows and an impressive vaulted ceiling. The former chapel is understood to have been formerly used as a school and would lend itself to a variety of alternative uses, both residential and commercial, or could easily form a self-contained annexe subject to any necessary consents. The accommodation is arranged at ground floor level with a large reception hall leading to the drawing room with an ornate open fireplace and sitting room with French windows opening into a conservatory. A rear lobby provides access to a study, cloakroom, large breakfast kitchen, utility room and family/games room. On the first floor, a galleried landing leads to six bedrooms and two bathrooms. There are four bedrooms located at the front of the house, which enjoy an outlook across Ledbury high street. A further rear landing leads to the chapel, mezzanine gallery and attic store. The configuration of the main accommodation would lend itself to a variety of commercial uses including a guest house, antique centre or restaurant (subject to planning permission). To the rear of Abbey House there is a delightful walled garden with a patio seating area, lawn and variety of planted shrub borders. There is vehicular access from Bank Crescent with parking for several vehicles and a detached GARAGE. Offered with no onward chain an internal inspection is deemed essential.
