Haldon is a wonderful period townhouse at the top of Corve Street in Ludlow. The house has been modernised and refurbished, but still has lots of charming period features including oak floorboards and original fireplaces, exposed beams and sash windows.

The three main reception rooms are accessed from the inviting entrance hall; of particular note is the sitting room with its great inglenook fireplace plus wood-burning stove. The kitchen is a warm family room, while the boot room provides a welcome mud trap in winter months.

The house has three double bedrooms and a family bathroom – the rooms on the second floor benefit from attractive views out across the rooftops to the countryside beyond. Useful secondary accommodation is accessed via a separate staircase and comprises a sitting room and an en-suite bathroom.

Outside, the walled garden has been beautifully landscaped, with paved and gravel pathways through the herbaceous beds and borders, while mature trees provide privacy. There are also vegetable beds and fruit trees, and a patio and various seating areas are well-placed to best appreciate the space.

Corve Street is an extremely sought-after location just a short walk from the town centre of Ludlow which is well-known for its food and drinks merchants and independent shops.

The guide price is £650,000. For further information please contact Strutt & Parker on 01584 873 711 or visit www.struttandparker.com.
