Alpike is a charming home positioned in a private rural position on the Brown Clee Hill, the highest hill in Shropshire at 1,770 ft above sea level and is in the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The property is near the thriving village of Abdon, Shropshire and is approximately 11 miles from the popular historic town of Ludlow.

Abdon is a small village with a big community life allowing villagers to be as private or as involved as they choose. With a variety of clubs and groups the village typifies the concept of an idyllic rural village community. Both Abdon and nearby Ditton Priors offer activities for those seeking a rural lifestyle with a community spirit, both have their own websites:

Located off the quiet country lanes around Brown Clee Hill, between the villages of Clee St Margaret and Ditton Priors, the property is accessed via a private drive which leads to a parking area for several vehicles.

Of initial note is the stunning position in which this property lies; with views to Ludlow and the Welsh Borders beyond, flanked by the rolling ground of the Hill. The property faces south west enabling it to take full advantage of the sun from late morning and throughout the day.

The dining terrace is thoughtfully located to the front of the property allowing you to enjoy the afternoon and evening sun in all of its glory with several levels leading down to an ornamental pond.

The property is entered through the front door into the entrance lobby and the inner hall beyond, off of which lies the well-proportioned sitting room. With windows on 3 elevations and being some 20ft long this is a bright and welcoming reception room, a fireplace features a log burner on a flagstone hearth with oak mantle piece over and stone surround.

The kitchen has a range of floor and head height units and could comfortably accommodate a breakfast table. A recessed area with an attractive wooden surround is the ideal location for a range oven and provisions are in place for a flue above. The triple windows above the double sink frame the spectacular views.

From the kitchen one can find the sun room/conservatory which takes full advantage of the position of Alpike and allows light to fill the room. It has ample space for a large dining table, a separate seating area and benefits from an oil fired burner. Our clients inform us that when this area was built they made provision for a first floor extension by ensuring that the footings would accommodate the additional load. This would have to be verified however.

To the rear of the property is a WC, a large utility room, the boiler room and a potting shed.

From the inner hall stairs lead to the first floor landing which provides access to the master bedroom with en-suite facilities and 3 further double bedrooms which are all served by the family bathroom which has a bath, separate shower, toilet and wash basin.

Alpike sits within 4 acres of ground, 3 of which are grazing paddocks. There is a small kitchen garden and a lawned garden bordered by matures shrubs and trees. There is also a detached double garage.

Services: Mains water, electricity, private drainage and oil central heating. Our clients have recently installed a brand new oil fired condensing boiler in April 2016. Council Tax Band E. We understand broadband is available at the property.
