Situation Glebe Farm enjoys an enviable rural location; secluded off a quiet country lane and surrounded by beautiful Herefordshire countryside. The property lies within the parish of Aylton, conveniently just 4 miles from the thriving market town of Ledbury. Many of the surrounding villages form part of the “Woolhope Dome” which preserves and enhances the high-value landscape of the surrounding countryside, characterised by orchards and traditional farms. Classed as a conservation area, this region offers a sought-after rural quality of life combined with excellent links, both locally and to the rest of the country

Glebe Farmhouse * This farmhouse is an extended period property, originating from the late 1860's that has been enlarged and modernised to create a spacious, contemporary, and very comfortable family home with underfloor heating throughout the ground floor.

* The light and welcoming entrance hall leads to an open plan kitchen/dining space with snug to one side, a classic north facing pantry and a good-sized utility room. The kitchen is the heart of the house with two separate reception rooms providing ample entertaining space.

* To the first floor, a wide landing opens to five bedrooms. The principal room benefits from an en-suite shower room, walk-in store cupboard and built-in wardrobes.

* Two family bath/shower rooms serve the other 4 bedrooms.

* This property is in excellent condition and has been well maintained. It benefits from LPG central heating, double glazing, and private drainage.

The Outside * A new gravelled private drive leads around the front of the house to the east side entrance porch and parking area, where a new timber framed garage will be provided as part of this sale (on order).

* The garden is a combination of level lawn with floral and herbaceous borders, complemented by several specimen trees including a Mulberry, Walnut, Pear and Fig trees.

* To the west of the entrance drive is a pasture paddock of about 1.35 acres, bordering a young orchard plantation of nearly 0.25 acres with a range of traditional fruiting apple varieties.

* This property is being split as the principal residence from a rural smallholding. The vendors are retaining the adjacent 3 bedroomed barn conversion, paddock, and orchard (for their own use, downsizing).
