Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Originally the Old Wing of Lacon Childe School, Lacon house is an exceptional property, steeped in history and beautifully maintained throughout.

The Childe coat of arms and inscription dating back to 1740 can be found above the door, marking the opening of the school itself. Coupled with the working bell tower adorning the roof, the property is a fascinating and traditional home, with numerous features that remain intact to this day.

Once the school’s chapel, the Banqueting Hall with Minstrel Gallery provides an impressive space for entertaining, complemented further by the Family / Entertaining Room which has available a full sized snooker table, to be included as part of the sale. Currently used as a living space with an in­built bar space, the rooms all retain a rich and grand atmosphere, while elegantly adapting to its residents.

With further study, dining room, drawing room and store, the ground floor proves to be a magnificent yet versatile space that can be used to suit a variety of preferences.

7 bedrooms are laid out across two floors and are serviced by a total of 3 bathrooms and WCs. For ease and accessibility, a further two WCs are located on the ground floor. All bedrooms are well proportioned with the master bedroom featuring a split, allowing space for a private reception area.

The kitchen, extensively refurbished across 2007, features granite work surfaces and Karndean floors, adding a touch of sophistication to this social and bright area. With an inbuilt breakfast area and a kitchenette adjoining the rear of the house, convenience and practicality are added.

With around 0.67 acres of land, the gardens surrounding Lacon house have been extensively renovated. A formal lawn and bordered gardens surround the front of the property, with a number of courtyards and a secret garden wrapping around the rest of the house. A variety of established shrubs are dispersed throughout the gardens, and with two striking water features, the gardens prove a wonderful setting for al fresco dining, entertainment and enjoyment, with excellent views across the surrounding countryside.

Set in a prime central location, Lacon House enjoys excellent access to all amenities and is recognised as an iconic and integral aspect of the local history. The main town of Cleobury Mortimer offers a range of tea rooms, country pubs and convenience stores as well as doctors and dentists, all while maintaining a quaint and rural atmosphere. With a rich history associated with Norman conquests and Medieval Lords, the old ruins of Cleobury castle and the crooked spire of St Mary’s Church lends this snug pastoral cloister a rural romantic aura, once frequented by poets such as Sir John Betjamin.

The historic market town of Ludlow is just 12 miles away, with a 20 minute drive across Clee Hill and spectacular views stretching from the Malverns, across to the Brecon Beacons and the Black Mountains. Famous for fine dining and its festivals, Ludlow offers numerous attractions for all, including regular markets.

With Kidderminster station and the M5 both within a 30 minute drive and a primary and secondary schools, a mere ten minute walk away offering excellent educational facilities, this property is accommodating to both families and commuters alike.
