DESCRIPTION
Ashford Carbonel is a beautiful village situated just a few miles from the increasingly popular historic market town of Ludlow. Ashford Carbonel is a pretty village with a long history and active
community. Its main focus is a very active village hall which offers many social events including afternoon teas, bowls club, cinema viewings, pub nights and quiz nights amongst a variety of their
functions. Additionally there is also garden clubs, a church and a newly constructed primary school.
For extensive high street shopping the ever popular market town of Ludlow is 3.7 miles distant and has a range of social, leisure and culture amenities and is more recently famed for its wonderful food festivals and functions at Ludlow castle as well enjoyable horse racing on the outskirts of the town. For even greater and more complex amenities the expansive conurbation of Birmingham is 41.7 miles away, and Shrewsbury is 33.2 miles. The property is exceptionally well located for educational facilities with several accessible and fantastic private schools nearby including Shrewsbury Boys School, Abberley Hall Prep School and Moor Park Prep. The property its self, is placed within the catchment area for
Bishop Hooper School (an amalgamation of two local primary schools) which is now in a purpose built and award winning design and construction building. Forde is also within the catchment area
of the Ludlow Church of England School.

THE PROPERTY
Forde sits in a wonderfully elevated position above the River Teme and looks down through a woodland area onto the river beyond. The property itself is approached from a village lane and then along a tree lined driveway to the front of the house where there is a considerable parking area. The property is entered through an enclosed porch way and into the spacious reception hall which leads directly onto the extensive drawing room with high ceilings and open fireplace with impressive surround and bay windows onto the south westerly facing gardens. The Forde is a classic country home and benefits from many wonderful period features including cornicing, ceiling roses, high ceilings and large sash windows. Along the reception hall there is a morning room with fitted shelving to either recess of the chimney breast and also has a dominating view over the gardens. Adjoining the morning room is the magnificent dining room with bay window incorporating a garden door and views over the lawn.

There is a vast family kitchen with archway into breakfast room. The kitchen has floor and wall mounted kitchen units integrating some appliances including a four oven twin hob Aga, dishwasher
and a large breakfast island to the centre of the room. Adjoining is a pantry and utility room with store. A large oak staircase rises to the spacious first floor landing. There is an impressive master bedroom suite with bay window overlooking the garden and river view beyond; it has an en suite
bath and shower room to one end and to the other is a dressing room with its own en suite shower room. (This dressing room could easily function as a nursery or a further bedroom). There are three further double bedrooms each serviced by its own en suite bath or shower room. All the remaining bedrooms are not only spacious but also have exceptional floor to ceiling height which provides them with a wonderful feeling of grandeur which
should be expected from a home of this calibre.
Another staircase rises to the second floor landing area where there are three further bedrooms serviced by a bathroom.

This floor could be a wonderful suite for teenagers, Au Pair or dependant.

OUTSIDE
The property is set within glorious mature surroundings and the gardens have been thoughtfully landscaped to provide many secluded areas including a hidden patio terrace with a beautiful view looking down to the River Teme which is set below the gardens. Immediately adjacent to the house is a large flat lawn ideal for croquet parties or summer afternoon drinks with the sun setting on Mortimor Forest opposite.

To the front of the property there is a parkland setting with many interspersed and mature specimen trees. Adjoining is a large level grass paddock with a gate onto the village lane and one in to the front of the property.

Several garden paths provide wonderful meandering ambulation around the various corners of the garden and down to the banks of the River Teme where there is a secret beach and deep pool for swimming and fishing.

immediately adjoining the house there is a gardener's loo, potting shed and several stores. In additional there is a detached coach house, a substantial detached timber and tiled block which offers stabling, garaging, stores, tack room and a feed room.
