130 The Homend is situated in the heart of the beautiful market town of Ledbury. Ledbury is ideally situated for exploring all that the three counties have to offer - Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire. Ledbury is also home to the renowned poetry festival and offers an abundance of facilities including primary and secondary schooling, cottage hospital, market theatre, churches, supermarkets, leisure facilities and has excellent rail links to London Paddington and Birmingham New Street. There is also easy access to the motorway network via junction 2 of the M50, just four miles south of Ledbury. The cathedral cities of Hereford, Worcester and Gloucester are all within easy commuting distance and are approximately 14½ miles, 17 miles and 16½ miles distant respectively.
To the rear of the property, a decked seating area offers itself as a marvellous space to entertain, as it becomes an extension of the kitchen / breakfast room by opening the hardwood concertina four panel doors fully. Leading from here is the first of two terraced areas that holds a multitude of planting, and a pergola that is adorned by clematis and a rose. There is also a very useful outbuilding that is divided in two and offers a WC and storage room to contain all outside paraphernalia. Well stocked herbaceous borders gently follow the curves of the lawn that end with the second of the terraces perfectly placed as a sun trap on those balmy summer afternoons.

This superbly refurbished period property may be accessed from both the front and the rear. At the rear you enter into the spacious breakfast room to the extremely stylish kitchen. The fully fitted mirror finish dark grey base units - containing an integrated dishwasher, refrigerator, and double oven - are complemented by a black granite work surface and oak flooring to create an elegant, modern space. The living room is at the front of the property, and has a very striking Portuguese limestone fireplace with a slate surround and black granite hearth that draws the eye and is a real focal point of this charming room. The rooms to the front of the property retain the original sash windows and are insulated with a high specification secondary glazing, whereas all windows to the rear have been replaced with new hardwood, double glazed and sympathetically styled frames. From the living room you have access the large basement storage area. Rising from the kitchen, stairs ascend to the first floor where the master bedroom and bathroom may be found. The master is a bright room where light flow is encouraged through white wooden shutters at the period window, and has a crisp and clean decor. Situated inside the recesses that were once at either side of the original fireplace are practical built in wardrobes. The large contemporary family bathroom, with cream tiled flooring, contains both a large bathtub enclosed in limestone, and a double enclosure with round rain shower that is finished with black slate wall tiling. There is a useful built-in storage cupboard on this landing, and also an ingenious removable balustrade that allows ease of access for furniture up and down the flight of stairs. To the second floor you find a further two bedrooms, with lower ceilings these character filled rooms are of great proportions. The front second bedroom offers the added benefit of an en-suite WC, which also gives access to the large loft space, which has a Velux roof light and electricity. The rear third bedroom has magnificent views over the garden and nearby Herefordshire countryside.
