Set in beautiful countryside and a peaceful location in East Herefordshire, between the traditional market towns of Ledbury and Ross-on-Wye, this classic smallholding has a great deal of potential to create a wonderful home. The area is surrounded by rolling countryside dotted with pastureland and cider apple orchards, for which the region is well known. This part of Herefordshire is still very much a rural community with a timeless appeal, but also benefiting from excellent communication links to the rest of the country.
Ladycroft is an attractive, detached Victorian house (c.1895) of modest proportion and origin, with bags of potential to renovate, extend or replace, subject to appropriate planning consents. The house appears in good structural order, but requires internal renovation. The property sits within its own plot, close to the boundary of the only near residential neighbour. A traditional outbuilding sits adjacent to the house and there is an ample gravelled parking around both.
House benefits from mains electricity and water, UPVC double glazing, septic tank drainage and electric central heating.
3 double bedrooms and spacious family bathroom.
Modest kitchen offered as seen.
2 reception rooms and decent utility room.
Rear garden room lean-to with WC. This extension is of basic construction and will require work.
A good-sized wooden barn sits adjacent to the house and has been structurally repaired to provide a useful outbuilding with garaging. This is mainly timber construction with some brick panels under a tin roof.
To the rear of the house and barn is an attractive garden, the ground then rising to a small bank with the pasture land beyond.
A gated and stoned roadway leads from the drive to the storage yard, and through to the orchard and rear paddock.
The land comprises an apple orchard leading to a rear paddock. The boundaries are fenced, with the land being secluded and secure.
Within the storage yard there are 6 modern 20 shipping containers, useful for on-site private storage. There are also a range of reclaimed building materials which will be included in the sale, as will the shipping containers.
Mains water and electricity. Private drainage (septic tank). Electric, in-line central heating (wet). UPVC, double-glazed windows (replaced early 2000s).
