The Oak House is one of four individual luxury barn conversions standing in surrounding fields of Corvedale countryside approached along a tarmacadam 1/4 mile drive. It is about seven miles north of the historic market town of Ludlow.

Once part of the farm belonging to Elsich Manor, which is listed, this good sized family home is attached to the neighbouring residence in a very private and secluded spot. It has LPG gas centrally heated accommodation with double glazing.

There is plenty of flexibility of use in the existing accommodation with up to four bedrooms if required and three reception rooms. Oak floors throughout most of the house are complemented by substantial exposed wall and ceiling timbers and also some original Elizabethan features.

The first floor drawing room, which is 18'8 x 15'9 has wonderful southerly views across the Corvedale towards the Clee Hills and Ludlow.

The large fitted kitchen, 16' x 14' on the ground floor has an adjoining large dining hall on the raised upper floor. The study or additional reception room could also be used as the fourth bedroom and the present utility room could provide an en-suite facility.

On the first floor the principal bedroom has an en-suite shower and WC. There is another bathroom, which serves two further bedrooms and there is also a separate WC and wash hand basin.

The gardens, about .8 of an acre, are a very special feature of this outstanding home. With a plot of about 200' long and an average of 70' wide, there is an abundance of shrubs, plants and trees of numerous species taking full advantage of the southerly facing gentle slopes looking out across the neighbouring fields.

The gardens have been specially designed and include an Elizabethan Parterre, with feature steps between the levels. There is a fruit cage, greenhouse and vegetable beds in addition to extensive herbaceous borders. There is also a semi enclosed courtyard.

A large double garage 22' x 17'6" has a first floor loft, which could be adapted to provide an ideal studio or home office or similar. There is extensive private car parking.
