Introduction

Estate Agents are often accused of exaggerating in order to grab potential buyers attention! However with No. 25 Mill Street, words simply can not do it justice and genuinely can only be appreciated by arranging a viewing. All your senses will be stimulated by the stunning walled garden of nearly 0.25 acres as well as the historic building which has retained much of its quirky uniqueness and lovingly restored along with an Oak framed extension to provide extra accommodation. There are literally surprises around every corner and if there is a better property on the market in the old historic town we have not seen it!

Property description

The gated archway which leads to the cottage is located between and shared by two cottages which front on to Mill Street and the passageway then leads through to no. 25 which is totally private and you would not know existed. Follow the pathway around the side of the house to the front door which leads you in to the Kitchen/dining room with exposed beams, triple aspect windows and french doors lead out on to the courtyard. There is access to the cellar which provides a perfect temperature and dry space for the wine. Proceeding through to the sitting room you are struck immediately by the size of the inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove, exposed beams and then two steps up to the stunning Oak framed garden room with doors leading outside. The first floor continues to provide plenty of exposed beams and floorboards and there are two modest double bedrooms and then a master bedroom suite which houses another stunning fireplace and is an ideal dressing room or private sitting area which opens out in to the bedroom area with vaulted ceiling and plenty of windows overlooking the garden. There is also a shower room on this floor, Original narrow stairs lead off the landing and rise to the two attic rooms which can be used for a variety of purposes including storage, hobbies, office or bedrooms. There is eaves storage running the entire length on both sides. Finally there is a bathroom on this floor.

Gardens

Having stepped out of the french doors there is a small courtyard garden with lawn and patio and great space for alfresco dining. A particular feature here is the original high curved period brick wall which provides shelter and a lovely backdrop giving this area a real Mediterranean feel. Following the meandering brick paved pathway the main garden is set out in all its glory with a plethora of flower borders, shrubs, trees, vegetable garden, ponds, wildflower garden and lawns and is like walking through an RHS garden at the Chelsea Flower Show with curved Victorian walls for climbers and ornamental shrubs. This garden is open to the public during the towns annual Secret Garden charity event in June and won the accolade of Ludlow's best kept courtyard in 2004 and 2006. In all the garden is a little under 0.25 acres.

Chalet and Outbuildings

There are a variety of outbuildings including a large timber chalet which is fully insulated and could easily become a guest living space or artist studio, the roof of the chalet has been planted with Sedum, an evergreen plant, to provide weatherproofing and insulation. Other out buildings include potting sheds, greenhouse, and a small summer house.

The vendors have had solar panels installed in an ingenious and unobtrusive way which provides energy and an income as well as a climbing frame for the roses.
