Property Details

rbb are delighted to offer the opportunity to purchase an attractive period property with generous grounds standing nestled within beautiful countryside, on the border of south Shropshire and north Herefordshire. The stunning, undulating rural surroundings are perfect for walking and enjoying wildlife.

This unique, attached 3-4 bedroom home has mature, beautiful country cottage gardens (approx. A third of an acre) with a trickling brook bordering it and a wooden bridge which leads over it and links the private woodlands to the gardens. The woodland is also approx. A third of an acre and has evidence of ruins/remains of a stone dwelling. We believe this is an opportunity to explore the possibilities of recreating this former home (subject to any necessary planning permissions). Otherwise, this is an interesting dynamic within the woodland to explore throughout the changing seasons. At the top of the woods are views over the surrounding rural fields, a great place to create a seating area or summer house.

This 17thcentury home is located down a peaceful lane in a secluded area shared with just the one attached neighbour. There is parking available at the front of the property and also at the foot of the woodland. There is a pathway which leads from the property to the village Church and there are amenities available in the nearby village of Leintwardine which is just 2 miles north of Adforton and has a petrol station with village shop, doctor’s surgery, church and public houses. The school catchment is Wigmore which is Ofsted rated ‘Outstanding’. The historic market towns of Leominster and Ludlow are 11.3 and 12.7 miles away respectively and offer further amenities and services, including useful network rail links.

The property offers characterful accommodation throughout and includes features such as exposed beam work to the ceilings and walls, an inglenook fireplace with inset wood burning stove in the Lounge, the original bread oven and salt bin. Believed to date back to the 17th century and thought to have been extended 100 years later. There are two stairs cases either end of the property; one leads to a landing area which makes a lovely office/study area but could also double as a useful, occasional 4th bedroom.

Downstairs is spacious with two reception rooms and a large kitchen. Upstairs are two bathrooms, including one Jack-and-Jill ensuite.

Services include:

Mains electric, mains water and private drainage. There is electric heating and a wood burning stove as additional heating in the Lounge. The council tax is band E and is currently payable to Herefordshire county council.

This property will offer a truly rural and inspirational lifestyle and we highly recommend internal viewing to fully appreciate all this property has to offer.
