Georgian town house offers Narnia backdrop

A 4 bed Grade II Listed Ludlow town house, with 2 bedroom cottage has been launched to the market by Balfours. Number 22-24 Old Street has the flexibility to satisfy many demands, from commercial and residential, to B&B/tourism accommodation.

The frontage is classic Georgian with deep sash windows, belies its Narnia qualities. Step to the rear of the house and prepare to be blown away by the country cottage style surrounded by a delightful courtyard laced with wisteria and other flora.

Balfours partner, Scott Kemsley explains: “Part of the ground floor has been used as an antique shop and currently the accommodation is run as one. However, it offers a very easy split, whether for dependent family or for tourism. As it is laid out at present, the ground floor provides three reception rooms, one kitchen. Over a further 2 floors there are a total of 6 bedrooms with 3 bathrooms, 2 staircases. This would easily split into the main house and 2 bed cottage, with the addition of a second kitchen.”

As you would expect of a Georgian residence, the main reception rooms and bedrooms are of generous and elegant proportions, offering space and height. There are also two reception hallways, plus a cellar.

Beyond the obvious attributes of the building itself, Old Street is within a short walk of the town centre and railway station. The medieval town itself is recognised for its restaurants, eateries, independent shops and culture.

With Shrewsbury and Hereford near equi-distance of some 22 miles, there is off road parking for 2 or 3 cars. There is an excellent choice of state and private schools in the area, together with Ludlow Golf Club and Ludlow National Hunt racecourse, plus excellent countryside walks.

Balfours are marketing 22 – 24 Old Street with a guide price of £595,000, for more information call 01584 707100.
