Full description

To take into account the outstanding location the original property has been transformed and whilst being modern in every aspect it blends to the countryside around it, giving it an ageless quality. The result of this venture is a most impressive, inspiring and unique property offering privacy in the most beautiful countryside location, coupled with the flexibility of a truly exceptional home. A triumph of ecofriendly design, Kiln House's 'creation' has been completed and is stylishly presented, where materials work together to create a 'clean' and comfortable interior. The property is exceptionally appointed throughout and all rooms are well-proportioned with numerous
interesting features.

As with most parts of the property, light is a key factor with rooms atmospheric and open to the ountryside and views beyond. The drawing room is a prime example with granite flooring opening to a cantilevered veranda wonderfully placed to benefit from the inspiring views. The open plan area encompasses the dining and entrance hall with a unique vaulted ceiling featuring exposed steel purlins. The height provides a wonderful feeling of space and light and is an impressive design feature located at the entrance to the property. The drawing room which is 42ft long boasts ample dining and entertaining space with a focus on the south facing view. There is a central log burner which creates a homely feel to what is an incredibly spacious room.

The modern kitchen/breakfast room is located next to the dining area through an arch which creates a visual separation without preventing the functional open plan feel. The kitchen comprises a range of wall and base units, integrated appliances including an American Fridge/Freezer, wine fridge, range cooker and double sink. The central island with breakfast bar boats a Silas stone top with the surrounding units having glass tops. The kitchen has doors leading out to the veranda.

Beneath the drawing room is a bright and spacious games room/gym with direct access to the garden and double doors to enjoy the view. This room could also be converted into an additional bedroom or into separate accommodation (STPP).

The separate family room provides a cosy retreat for winter evenings and is currently utilised as a music room but could serve a variety of purposes. Adjoining the snug is a utility room with extra storage, space for appliances and a cloakroom. An external door provides ease of access to and from the garage and gardens.

Leading up a private staircase and onto the gallery is the master bedroom suite which completely capitalises on the exceptional views. Waking in the morning with uninterrupted view stretching far into the distance is a great way to start the day! With bi-fold doors retracting back it is the perfect place to read the papers or watch the sun set. The owners have installed extensive storage and wardrobes and also a spacious bathroom which is glass fronted and laid out to focus on the views and comprises of a central bath with separate shower and sink.

Each of the three remaining bedrooms are en-suite (two with showers and one with a bath) and face south, benefiting from the wonderful views.

Hidden away on the southern slopes of Clee Hill, Kiln House is in a wonderful location with the most outstanding far reaching views. The vista includes the Malvern Hills to the East and the Teme Valley to the South, stretching to Pen-y-Fant some 50 miles away and to the West, Ludlow with its Castle clearly visible.

Nearby are the market towns of Tenbury Wells and Ludlow, both benefiting from all of the everyday facilities that might be needed. Ludlow is also renowned for its fine architecture, vibrant festivals and popular restaurants.

Communications in the area are excellent, the M5 (junction 5) is approximately 30 miles away. Ludlow is on the Manchester/Cardiff railway line with trains to London taking a little over three hours. The A49 is a short distance away, linking
the cathedral city of Hereford in the south to the county town of Shrewsbury in the north.

The property is approached from Hope Bagot Lane. Through the gates the first inkling of the view is seen over the vineyard, passing a dew pond the driveway then reveals the house with ample parking.

South facing, the gardens have been extensively landscaped to now provide areas laid to lawn with specimen mature trees and herbaceous and flowering borders. Located from both the drawing room and kitchen are doors leading out to the first floor terrace which creates further dining and entertaining space. A further terrace is located on the ground floor with direct access from the games room.

Within the grounds is a National Monument comprising 3 kilns, historically part of the productive industry that thrived in the area.

Woodlands provide a haven for wildlife, as well as a freshwater pond. The garden design incorporates different levels and shapes with the curved banks to the terraces closest to the house being attractive features.

There are many areas in the gardens that offer space for quiet contemplation and double as superb vantage points from which to enjoy the exceptional views.

A single garage is located to the rear of the main house lies beyond the parking area. A further modern barn can be found in the grounds and is currently used for storage.
