UNSURPASSED period provenance combined with prime location, offer a unique opportunity at Ludlford, on the south bank of the River Teme, adjacent to Ludlow.

Grade II listed, the Old Bell House, was recognised and revered in Country Life exactly 100 years ago, well before listings were invented.

Now on the market with Balfours the house has been meticulously conserved to retain its original features, whilst enhancing the requirements of 21st century living.

Within its 5,500 square feet credentials are five bedrooms, four bathrooms, a studio, swimming pool, landscaped gardens, orchard and kitchen garden, plus river frontage with fishing rights.

Ludlow sales manager Scott Kemsley comments: "The Old Bell House is simply enchanting. This will appeal to those seeking a private retreat with utter wow factor.

"It is beautifully positioned on the River Teme, yet only a seven-minute walk to Ludlow town centre."

Ludlow is renowned for its eclectic mix of culture, festivals, restaurants, individual shops and an excellent selection of private and state education.

The surrounding countryside provides local golf and race course, plus outstanding walking, gliding and riding.

Car and rail travel put Hereford, Shrewsbury, Manchester, Cardiff and Birmingham all within an acceptable commute.

London is accessible by changing just once in a little over three hours.

Scott adds: "The rooms have wonderful views, either to the mature gardens or to the river beyond.

"The Old Bell House owns the weir (let to the Teme Weirs Trust) and is entitled to receive its electricity from the Hydro Co-operative, in addition to its connection to the National Grid."

The Old Bell House is marketed with a guide price of £1,575,000.
