Many improvements have been made to this lovely attached village property during the time it has been occupied by the present owner. It now provides very spacious, bright and airy versatile accommodation with plenty of character still intact as well as having all modern day conveniences.

It is understood that the house was converted from a barn to a dwelling in the mid-1800's. It has since been comprehensively extended. It stands in the centre of the tiny village of Middleton, near Ludlow, which is surrounded by some of the area's most beautiful countryside, with lovely views across the adjoining farmland and up towards the Clee Hills in the distance.

A very special feature is the most imposing spacious reception hall, which provides ample space for dining, or a study area. It has a stone floor with underfloor heating and there is plenty of natural sunlight having windows and a door leading into the garden. There is also a built-in cloak cupboard. From the hall a door leads into the utility room with a sink, plumbing for a washing machine and space for a dryer. Within the utility room is a WC and wash basin and two useful store cupboards.

Glazed double doors lead into the impressive kitchen/dining room which has a focal point of a brick inglenook fireplace housing a wood burning stove. There are exposed ceiling beams. The kitchen is fully equipped with ample kitchen units, a built-in double oven, a four plate hob, an extractor hood and an integral dishwasher. There are French doors leading to outside and a stone floor with underfloor heating. There is also a walk-in pantry with fitted shelves and ample space for a fridge and freezer. A further oak floored reception room could be used as a dining room, study or even an optional ground floor bedroom. There are windows to both front and rear and a connecting door into the superb sitting room which has a feature wide window at the rear with spectacular views across the garden and the adjoining fields to the Clee Hills in the distance. A fireplace houses a wood burning stove and there two further windows and an oak floor.

Stairs rise to a very spacious first floor landing which is divided into two sections. There is space for an area to be used for occasional sleeping or dressing room. On the landing are exposed beams, exposed floorboards and a range of fitted wardrobes. The main bedroom has windows to two elevations and has a large en-suite bathroom which has a cast iron roll top bath, shower, wash basin and WC. The two other bedrooms are also double in size. The main family bathroom has a white suite of bath with shower above, WC, wash basin with drawers beneath. There is also a heated towel rail.

The detached timber clad cottage provides good independent living accommodation. There is a sitting room with glazed doors from which are views across the garden and the adjoining field to the Clee Hills. The stone floor has underfloor heating which runs through the entire ground floor. The kitchen has ample base and wall units. Appliances include a built-in double oven, electric hob and an extractor hood above. There is space and plumbing for a dishwasher. From a lobby area is access to the ground floor WC and wash basin which has plumbing for a washing machine and a door to outside. Stairs rise to the first floor landing off which is a double bedroom with two skylights and a widow. There is a large shower room which also has a WC and wash hand basin, and plumbing and space for a bath.

The surrounding gardens are a good size. At the rear they adjoin open farmland and have spectacular countryside views. The rear and side gardens are mainly laid to lawn. The front garden has lawns bordered by well stocked flowerbeds containing a variety of colourful shrubs, bushes, plants and ornamental trees and there is a central path from the lane to the front door of the main cottage. There are stone areas to both the rear of the main residence and the cottage and within the garden is a detached timber outbuilding which could be used for a variety of different purposes, such as a studio, office or workshop. Adjoining this outbuilding is a pergola which is covered with climbing plants under which is a shady sitting area. From the lane a wooden five bar gate leads onto the stone driveway to a turning area which provides ample space for parking several vehicles.
