Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
No.8 is a three double bedroom detached property with central heating and double glazing throughout, it is within walking distance of the Ludlow town centre, and has been a family home for the last 35 years. It is set in it's own grounds in a quiet residential road in a raised position leaving it mostly unseen & undisturbed


The property affords a great deal of privacy & the potential for development internally & externally should the buyer wish. E.g. Adding parking which is currently available on the street outside with very good availability, extensions and/or adding a conservatory within its ample boundaries. All STPP but these have previously been granted locally.

The gardens which attract a variety of wildlife are currently laid mostly to stone for easy maintenance, while having a number of separate secluded areas to enjoy, even having it's own apple tree in the back garden.

While clean & able to be lived in No.8 would benefit from someone looking to make it there own with cosmetic modernisation.
