Phoenix House is located on Westhill approximately 1 mile from Ledbury town centre. 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.

Phoenix House is a unique architect design timber frame property constructed in 1999 for the current owners. The design of Phoenix House was influenced by British architect and designer C F Voysey, who was a renowned figure in the Arts and Crafts Movement. The property boasts a number of noteworthy features including oak internal doors and flooring, a striking oak staircase with mezzanine landings, stained hardwood double glazed windows and high levels of insulation. The accommodation is arranged over three floors and is approached from the ground floor via a wooden staircase leading to a glazed oak framed Verandah.
