Location & Description

Massington Lodge is situated in a sought after location on the outskirts of the historic village of Eastnor which has a church, local primary school and the beautiful Eastnor Castle Estate. The popular market town of Ledbury is less than two miles away and offers an excellent range of independent retailers, cafes, churches, restaurants, schools, community hospital and mainline railway station with direct lines to Hereford, Worcester, Birmingham New Street, Oxford, Reading and London Paddington. The Cities of Hereford, Worcester and Gloucester are approximately 16 miles distant and the M50 motorway is available approximately 4 miles to the south of Ledbury town. This part of Herefordshire lies close to the Worcestershire/Gloucestershire borders and is renowned for its unspoilt countryside and wonderful walks including to Westhill, Eastnor Obelisk, Deer Park and the Malvern Hills.

Believed to date back to 1890, Massington Lodge is a charming detached country home nestled within the Eastnor Estate, surrounded by the unspolit Herefordshire countryside. Massington Lodge was once the Ledbury Pumping Station before being converted into a private residential dwelling in 1991. The current vendors have owned the property for nearly 15 years and their journey was documented on 'Escape To The Country in 2010 and again in 2017 on 'I Escaped To The Country'. The property is flooded by natural light throughout and boasts large picture windows, which frame the surrounding landscape beautifully. There are several noteworthy character features including extensive exposed timbering, striking vaulted ceilings, wooden internal doors and an impressive inglenook fireplace. Extending to approximately 1,350 sq ft, the accommodation on the ground floor comprises an entrance hall, spacious living room, separate dining room, conservatory and breakfast kitchen. On the first floor a landing leads to a master bedroom with an en suite shower room, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom. In addition to the main accommodation there are two separate self contained annexes, Bluebell Lodge and Woodland Retreat. Bluebell Lodge comprises one double bedroom with a kitchentte and an en suite shower room. Woodland Retreat is a detached cedar lodge with an open plan living/dining/kitchen, double bedroom and a shower room. The annexes are currently used as holiday lets and provide an exciting opportunity for this venture to continue or to be used as ancillary accommodation for relatives. One of the great strengths of Massington Lodge is its private setting, surrounded by TWO AND A HALF ACRES of enchanting garden and woodland. The current owners have completely transformed the grounds and have created a true haven of escapism with pockets of interest in every corner. With so much to offer, an internal inspection is highly recommended to appreciate this unique opportunity.
