Agents note

Planning Permission & Listed Building Consent was granted on 25th October 2016 for the removal of the existing

conservatory and the erection of a single storey brick/block extension. Planning Ref16/03956/FUL. Drawings are

available with Ludlow Office.


The property is connected to mains gas, electricity and water and has private drainage to septic tank.


The gardens are to front and rear and are currently laid to lawn with well established tress and shrubs, but offers a blank canvas to the Monty Don's amongst us. The back drop of open countryside is amazing and makes you feel as if you are in the middle of open countryside, yet the property is situated a short distance from Ludlow town itself.
