The Sycamores is a beautiful example of Edwardian elegance, and stands proudly at the gateway to Carding Mill Valley. The self contained studio annexe is presently used for holiday lets and provides a very useful income. There is also great potential for bed & breakfast in the main residence.
The property benefits from stunning surroundings and magnificent views, and yet is only a few hundred yards walk from the local shops and amenities of Church Stretton. The present owners have been careful to retain many of the original features of the house, and it is therefore full of character and charm.
Mains gas, electric, water and drainage are also connected. A gravelled car parking area with ample room for 3 or 4 cars has a path leading up to the property itself.
The approach to the property is up some steps which lead to the entrance porch, and then into the main hallway which retains its original Edwardian floor tiles. From here is the dining room, with a feature fireplace and bay windows with a window seat to enjoy the view. The good sized lounge also has bay windows, and a fireplace with gas connection. The kitchen leads off from the hallway, and the utility area is beyond this with a sink, plumbing for a washing machine and useful extra storage space.
From the kitchen there is a door leading to the basement flat, which is a self contained studio style apartment with kitchen, living area and bathroom. It has its own separate entrance from the terraced area outside, which is ideal for eating out, or simply relaxing and enjoying the views.
On the second floor is the master bedroom, with large bay windows, stained glass arch windows, and fully tiled ensuite facilities. The second bedroom on this floor is another double, and this has a fantastic balcony measuring approximately 3m x 2m. The family bathroom is also on this level, with exposed wooden floorboards, freestanding bath and separate shower unit.
The top floor has a further 3 rooms, two of which are double sized, and the third would make a useful single bedroom or office.
To the rear of the property the garden measures approximately 30m x 11m, and is partly terraced. There is a lawned area (approx 5m x 3m) for seating, and the owners have planted the gardens extensively with 'stepover' fruit trees, hazel, hawthorn and elderflower hedging, and over 100 varieties of roses.
From Ludlow take the A49 in a northerly direction to Church Stretton. At the traffic lights turn left. Follow this road to a crossroads and turn right. After a few hundred yards take the left turn signed Carding Mill Valley. Continue over the cattlegrid and the house is on the bank on the left hand side.
