Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Pear Tree Farm is an attractive 17th Century stone farmhouse with character and charm offering flexible accommodation arranged over three floors.
The property is a marriage of old world charm and modern convenience; retaining many original features and well-appointed kitchen and bathrooms.
The main reception rooms are of a good size with beamed ceilings, impressive fireplaces housing multi-fuel wood burning stoves and beautiful flagstone and oak flooring.
The farmhouse kitchen has an oil-fired Aga and hand-made units with solid oak doors and sycamore worktops. There is an integral dishwasher, gas hob and a superb pantry with shelving and ample space for storage and appliances.
There is a large rear hall/boot room off which is a family bathroom as well as stairs to a further room which the vendors currently use as office space, but which has great potential for a further bedroom.

To the first floor are four double bedrooms which all enjoy lovely views to the gardens and countryside beyond. One bedroom benefits from an en-suite shower room with the remainder being served by a luxurious family bathroom complete with roll-top bath.
The 2nd floor is a huge space not yet fulfilling its potential. This area has been converted but needs the finishing touches completed and would make a stunning master suite or further ensuite bedroom space.

A ground floor apartment forms additional accommodation accessed from the front of the house as well as enjoying separate entry from the garden and offers a kitchen and spacious open plan sitting room/bedroom with shower room off - this has been used by the current vendors as a holiday let and as part of a bed and breakfast.

Wigmore is an historic North Herefordshire village with an outstanding school. There are two newly refurbished pubs/restaurants, a community shop and of course, Wigmore Castle and famous church.

The ever popular village of Leintwardine is close by providing further amenities, whilst the famed market town of Ludlow is a short drive away and offers a range of facilities and is renowned for its vibrant festivals, gastronomic reputation and interesting architecture.

Communications in the area are good. Wigmore is approx. a 15 minute drive from Ludlow which is on the main Manchester to Cardiff line with connections to London. The A49 links the county town of Shrewsbury in the north to the cathedral city of Hereford in the south. The motorway network is accessed beyond Ludlow towards Kidderminster via the A4117. London is accessible in about 3 hours.

Approached up a gravelled driveway flanked by areas of lawn, Pear Tree Farm enjoys ample parking and turning space for several vehicles. The gardens are mostly laid to lawn with an orchard, copse and formal beds.
There are apple, plum, damson and pear trees, and walkways mingle with hidden seating areas.
There are numerous outbuildings with great possibility for redevelopment subject to obtaining the relevant permissions. They are currently used for storage, a large workshop with power connected, an open bay store and a two-bay car port.
There is a grass paddock of approximately two thirds of an acre which is bordered by hedging and mature trees and currently an extension of the garden, but which could easily be fenced off and made separate.

The property has valuable planning consent for four detached properties. Please see agent for details
