A four bedroom character barn conversion in a sought-after village location.

The property Lavender House is a sensitively-converted timber-clad family home offering flexible accommodation arranged over two floors. The property cleverly combines the amenities of modern living with retained character features including high ceilings and exposed wall and ceiling beams throughout.

The ground floor accommodation flows from a generous dining hall with French doors to the rear garden and briefly comprises a large dual aspect sitting room with a wooden floor and freestanding wood burning stove, a well-proportioned dual aspect snug, a generous triple aspect kitchen/breakfast room and a fitted utility room with garden access. The kitchen offers a range of bespoke wall and floor units with modern integrated appliances, a Belfast sink and a Falcon range cooker and has space for a good-sized table for more informal dining.

The first floor, featuring vaulted ceilings throughout, is split into two self-contained areas accessible over separate staircases from the dining hall and utility room. Each area contains two good-sized bedrooms with built-in storage and a family bathroom, one featuring a contemporary freestanding bath and separate walk-in shower.


Outside The property is approached over a gravelled driveway offering parking for multiple vehicles with twin five-bar gates giving access to the well-maintained enclosed garden which features areas of level lawn to the front and side of the property. The gardens are bordered by mature flowerbeds and low-level topiary, with a paved terrace, ideal for entertaining and al fresco dining. To the rear the property offers a low-maintenance paved courtyard garden, also ideal for entertaining. There is also a double garage and parking area to the side of the barn.


Location Ashford Bowdler lies on the western side of the River Teme in south Shropshire, on the outskirts of Ludlow and near the county border with Herefordshire, with the Ashford Bridge connecting it to the picturesque village of Ashford Carbonel. Ashford Carbonel sits within a conservation area and boasts a thriving community, as well as a popular village school and a village sports field. Nearby Ludlow is a thriving medieval market town and an architectural gem, situated on a cliff above the River Teme and surrounded by the beautiful countryside of south Shropshire, the Welsh Marches and neighbouring Wales, making it an ideal base for walking and cycling. There are also a variety of golf clubs in the area, including Ludlow and Leominster.

The Ludlow shopper has a wealth of choice: the town is packed with independent shops including butchers, bakeries, delicatessens, clothes shops, ironmongers, gift shops, book shops, antique and craft shops.

The area offers a good range of state schooling including Bishop Hooper C of E Primary School in Ashford Carbonel and Ludlow C of E School. Long-established and noteworthy independent schools include Moor Park, St. Michael’s College and Lucton.
