Tenure: Freehold

Townsend House is a listed Leominster mansion and one of the most remarkable properties in this historic market town.

The house has been lovingly restored by the current owners and now offers a superb marriage of period detailing and modern amenities with an excellent finish.

In a project spanning a lifetime, the owners have brought Townsend House back to life and this labour of love has created a very happy family home.

The accommodation is arranged over three floors and offers excellent proportions with high ceilings, large windows and full of natural light throughout.

At the centre of the house is the superb entrance hall with a beautiful tiled floor and splendid 18th Century staircase winding to the bedrooms and bathrooms on the two floors above.

The ground floor reception space is generous and period detailing is found at every turn. The heart of the home is the kitchen/breakfast room and it does not disappoint. The original flagstone floor and feature windows blend seamlessly with a stunning hand-made kitchen of oak and granite with an Aga and built in appliances. The adjacent boot room, utility and pantry are a real bonus and the position, with access to the private kitchen garden, is a delight.

Townsend House is situated on a quiet road behind period brick walls yet is within a stone's throw of Leominster's part pedestrianized town centre which is renowned for its antique shops but offers a wide variety of small shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants.

Communications in the area are good with the A49 linking Shrewsbury in the north to Hereford in the south. Leominster's train station (on the main Manchester to Cardiff line) has trains running to London at regular intervals. The surrounding countryside offers fine walks along with other outdoor pursuits. There is racing at both Hereford and Ludlow, the latter is famed for its independent shops and annual food festival. Hay-on-Wye is a little further afield and is renowned for the annual Literary Festival.

The private gravel drive passes kept lawn, soaring pines, mature trees and arrives at the house which benefits a large parking area. Townsend House sits comfortably within its own grounds with all boundary's being walled in period brick.

Each aspect of the property is a handsome proposition and benefits from different garden areas providing a wonderful mix of neatly kept lawn, box hedging, and herbaceous borders.

The excellent kitchen garden just off the back door is a fantastic private setting. The grounds, like the house, have been lovingly restored and are a compliment to the property.
