An Attractive Substantial Detached Character Property Located In A Sought After Residential Area Within Walking Distance Of Ledbury Town Centre Offering Improved And Extended Four Bedroomed Accommodation With Ample Driveway Parking, Single Garage And A Well Established Garden. Internal Inspection Highly Recommended. EPC D.


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.


Originally constructed in 1914, The Gables is an attractive period property conveniently located within walking distance of Ledbury town centre. The property has undergone a comprehensive scheme of improvement in recent years to include a substantial two storey extension in 2015 to create a large entrance porch, additional reception room and fourth double bedroom. The extension offers potential to be adapted further still to create annexe accommodation if required. Further enhancements have also been made to the kitchen and master en suite shower room. The result is a fine example of a family home offering contemporary well proportioned accommodation whilst still retaining a sense of charm and character.

Benefiting from gas fired central heating and double glazing throughout, the accommodation is arranged on the ground floor with an entrance porch, spacious reception hall with original patterned tiled floor, sitting room with an open fireplace, dining room, family room, study, kitchen with adjoining breakfast room and a large rear porch, which gives access to a utility room and cloakroom. From the reception hall, stairs with an original wooden balustrade lead to the first floor galleried landing, which in turn leads to the master bedroom with en suite shower room, three further double bedrooms, family bathroom and separate WC.
