Situation The property sits within the popular rural village of Wellington Heath, a short drive from the nearby market town of Ledbury. Renowned for its beautiful countryside, this area of Herefordshire is characterised by a diverse farming landscape with undulating countryside and ample woodland. This property offers a desirable semi-rural idyll combined with excellent communication links to the rest of the country.

The Canopies • The Canopies is a very well presented, recently refurbished and interesting modern detached house which offers spacious accomodation.

• Although mostly refurbished, there are still some external elements that would benefit from some TLC.

• A large, open covered porch with decked area leads to the front door and subsequently into the entrance hall, where stairs lead up to the first floor.

• The recently fitted kitchen is complemented by a range of high gloss modern units, which offer plenty of storage, and Corian worksurfaces, and benefits from an integrated dishwasher, fridge-freezer, Miele electric oven and induction hob with extractor.

• A utility room leads directly off the kitchen and provides space for a washing machine/tumble dryer and has a door to the garden. There is also a very useful, separate ground floor shower room with WC.

• The kitchen opens to a super, family/dining room, which, in turn, leads out to the fantastic, covered balcony overlooking the garden. This would benefit from some tlc but is a great space for enjoying those warm summer evenings, for seasonal dining and entertaining. Because the balcony is covered and sheltered, it could certainly be used all-year round.

The Canapies Continued • There is a comfortable sitting room with triple aspect and a feature fireplace which has potential for the installation of a wood-burner, subject to professional advice.

• Stairs lead up from the entrance hall to the galleried, first-floor landing where there are three good double bedrooms. The main bedroom has a double aspect and a lovely, freestanding bath with a separate, enclosed WC. There are two further double bedrooms, one with double wardrobe.

• A section of the landing has been fitted with wardrobes/storage, and this area could easily be sectioned off to create a separate dressing room, if desired, or utilised as a further relaxation space/seating area.

• A further room, currently used as a study, has stairs leading up to a large, currently unfinished, converted attic space, which has huge potential. The attic room has power and plumbing and offers a fabulous, versatile space for a range of uses, including a fourth bedroom/en-suite, a games room, etc., and in conjunction with the study below could be utilised to create a guest suite or fantastic space for older children.

The Outside • The Canopies is approached off the village road, which leads into the gated driveway and parking situated to the front of the property.

• The property sits centrally within its plot and has a very manageable garden with scope for enhancement.

• There is a lawned area at the rear and a variety of mature shrubs and trees further complement the garden, along with raised flower borders/beds.

• A useful timber shed and a further open fronted store both provide great storage.

• The garden room is accessed externally via steps leading from the main house down to the garden as it sits at a lower ground level, and is a fantastic, additional space with potential for a range of uses, including a studio, gym, work room, etc.
