A beautifully commanding Border Oak style property of manorial proportions set within idyllic grounds and gardens, a short distance from the vibrant town of Ludlow.
The property Wild Cherry Farm is a most attractive timber framed family home offering over 5,500 sq. ft. of light-filled and flexible accommodation arranged over two floors together with substantial outbuilding space, including a purpose-built indoor swimming pool complex. The property combines the conveniences of modern living with a wealth of character and numerous exposed wall and ceiling beams.
The present owners have very sympathetically extended the property with the addition of a porch, office, downstairs Master Bedroom with an en suite bathroom, and the exquiste Drawing Room (also known as 'The Solar') which has a triple aspect. This work was exceptionally well carried out by Border Oak. On the ground floor there is an attractive entrance hall, a dual aspect sitting room with a feature open fireplace, a generous dining room opening into the kitchen with walk-in larder and fitted utility room with garden access. The kitchen provides a range of bespoke wall and floor units with a breakfast bar, granite worktops, a Rayburn and modern integrated appliances. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a spacious dual aspect master bedroom with a contemporary en suite bathroom. Adjoining this is an office area, which has the potential for further uses.
The first floor accommodation can be accessed via two separate staircases. The first, from the entrance hall, leads to a galleried landing and to four well-proportioned bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room and the others serviced by a good-sized family bathroom. The second staircase rises from the family room and leads to a stunning extensive triple aspect drawing room (The Solar) with exposed A frame ceiling and wooden floor.
An inner hallway off the dining room gives access to the link-attached outbuilding which incorporates a heated swimming pool with two changing rooms, shower room and two sets of French doors to a paved garden terrace. Also, in this part of this building is a large study/shelved library/computer room.
Wild Cherry Farm appears to have been well maintained by the present owners and sits on the edge the attractive hamlet of Wigmore. It is an excellent family home.
Outside Wild Cherry Farm looks over its wonderful gardens with fine views over the Mortimer Forest and to the west. The House is approached over a private driveway which divides with the main drive continuing onto the front door and another drive to the Outbuildings. There is also a separate rear drive that leads to the back door and garaging for two vehicles. The landscaped formal gardens offer large expanses of lawn bordered by mature shrubs and trees and provide numerous seating areas. Also situated within the gardens is a small lake with an island, a well maintained and well stocked vegetable garden with fruit cages and a large paved terrace area adjoining the pool complex, ideal for al fresco dining and entertaining. The gardens lead directly to the excellent flat grass paddock. Approached off its own separate access is an excellent and substantial outbuilding, which is used partly as a wine store and open-fronted garage.
Location Elton is a small Herefordshire hamlet with a parish church, half way between the town of Ludlow and the village of Wigmore. The latter offers a good range of day-to-day amenities including a community shop, two public houses and popular schools.
