Here is a property suitable for a variety of different types of buyers. With its self contained adjoining holiday cottage Ford House provides a very lucrative income. It would also be ideal for anyone looking for an adjoining self contained annexe facility.

The house is set in the heart of Orleton village which has always been a highly popular residential location. The village has a very vibrant community with a popular well used community centre, shop and post office, two village inns of repute, a junior school, parish church and a doctors surgery. All of these facilities are within walking distance of the centre of the village. Orleton is very conveniently situated midway between Ludlow and Leominster.

The main house has many character features. An entrance porch with quarry tiled floor leads into the reception hall which again has a quarry tiled floor and leads to the ground floor cloaks/WC which includes a wash hand basin. A focal point in the spacious sitting room is a Victorian fireplace which houses a wood burning stove. This room also has attractive parquet flooring. The kitchen/dining room has ample base units and there are also glass wall cabinets. There is a larder and a Lacanche range cooker with electric and gas ovens and five gas burners. This is a particularly light room having four windows, two of which are feature arched windows. From the kitchen there is access into a superb garden room with a ceiling reaching into the apex of its roof. This room has a slate floor and exposed wall timbers. There are glazed French doors leading to outside and a second door leading out onto an outside patio.

The formal dining room is a lovely entertaining room. It also has a parquet floor.

Stairs rise to the first floor landing. From the main bedroom there are views over the village stream. The second bedroom has an ornate Victorian fireplace and a walk-in wardrobe. There are two further bedrooms, one presently used as an office. The bathroom has a white suite comprising bath, wash basin and separate shower cubicle. There is a separate WC with an antique cistern and seat.

The adjoining cottage is totally self contained and is presently a very successful holiday business. The sitting room has exposed wall and ceiling timbers and a fireplace housing a wood burning stove. In the kitchen there are ample base units with worktops and a cooker and refrigerator. Two staircases lead to the two first floor bedrooms. The main bedroom has built-in wardrobes, exposed wall timbers and an electric wall heater. The second twin bedroom also has exposed wall timbers. The bathroom has a white suite of bath, WC and wash hand basin.

The garden is a special feature. Amounting to about a third of an acre it is bordered by a small stream. It is predominantly lawn intercepted by a variety of ornamental trees, shrubs and bushes. There are various mature flowerbeds and from the lawn steps lead down to a sunken terrace which borders the stream. There is a rustic trellis area which has colourful climbing rose and clematis plants. Also in the garden are fruit trees including eating and cooking apple trees and a pear tree and an octagonal timber summer house.

There are some very useful outbuildings which could be used for a variety of different purposes. A timber clad outbuilding is presently used for utility purposes. It has a sink and plumbing for a washing machine. There are numerous electricity points and built-in cupboards with shelving. This area could readily be used as a studio or home office. There is an adjoining timber workshop with electric light and power points and this could also be used for garaging if required. There is an adjoining wood store.
