Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A Two double Bedroom Cottage, lovingly renovated and in the heart of historic Ludlow. Re-built to a very high standard with the emphasis on authentic Victorian decor, despite being in the very centre of Ludlow this gem is tucked away behind other houses off a quiet pedestrian street. You would never know it was there. The perfect "lock and leave" haven, it has to be seen to be truly appreciated.

From the brick lined pedestrian Pepper Lane, you sneak down a narrow passageway, down steps and past other little terraced cottages to a wrought iron gate. A pretty little courtyard that can be used to store winter fuel for the wood burner and summer flowers and shrubs. It is large enough for a table and chairs for sheltered and secluded dining.

A composite front door with Georgian scroll brass door knocker and bulls-eye window pane opens to The Hallway. Running through the centre of the house with doors off to the Kitchen and Sitting Room, with stairs ahead to first floor.

3.7m x 3.1m
Snug and thoughtfully equipped with a range of Malvern-style wall and floor units to a bespoke design and wooden beech wood surfaces over backed by tiled splashbacks and a Belfast sink. New World Newhome gas cooker and hob with a Sheila-maid dryer over. German Kommerling window with high-security locks and monkey-tail handles to front, lined with Keylite blinds. The floor is tiled. The useful pantry houses an Aquasoft water softener and plenty of shelving space extending under the stairs for all manner of kitchen stores. The new Worcester condensing combi-boiler is also housed in the kitchen.

Sitting Room 
4.1m x 3.8m
A bold decision was taken to paint the entire room in an Annie Sloan Primer Red chalk paint, which certainly gives a feeling of opulence, like a gentleman’s study. The centrepiece of the room is the new Clearview Pioneer wood burner, complete with a ceramic Supalux reflecting board and Indian stone hearth, with six inch double-insulated flue system. The floor is wooden laminate, but rather than a fitted modern carpet there is seagrass matting to near the edges, which can be available by negotiation. Lighting is equally thoughtful, with an oil lamp style light over the dining area and Victorian style wall lights, this room has a feel of Dickensian warmth.

Stairs and Landing 
The stairs have also been subjected to the same rigorous standards of heritage style, with a Persian-Red carpet held by brass stair-rods and Annie Sloan Country Grey painted walls throughout the first floor. The stairs and landing are flooded with light from the new double-glazed Velux windows, which just give a hint of the top of St Laurences church if you look carefully. The landing has Ealing Twist Titanium carpet and a handy cupboard, with plenty of shelving.

2.6m x 2.1m
The Bathroom is compact and perfectly finished, with a Richmond insulated roll top bath, Moods Signature sink and Westminster taps, glass light fittings, airing cupboard, heated towel rail, down blower and frosted glass window.

Bedroom 2 
3.4m x 2.1m
The guest Bedroom is a double, with fitted Sherborne wardrobes and drawers to make the most of the space, with the window overlooking the courtyard, along with a television point if you feel the need to escape the Victorian era. With Ealing Twist Titanium carpet.

Bedroom 1 
4.1m x 3.8m
The Master Bedroom is lovely and painted Paris Grey, your eye is drawn immediately to the flue from the wood-burner below, which is double-insulated to provide heat without ever being too hot to touch. There are louvre style triple fitted wardrobes, shelves, Tiffany pendant light, television point, another new double-glazed Velux window over the bed, flooding the room with light. The window overlooks a neighbouring private cobbled courtyard, once again veiling your town centre location.
