  • 2 Old School HouseWe spent a long time looking around a number of houses, but as soon as I saw this beautiful village property I instantly fell in love. It has such a wonderful architectural structure with spectacular views. You really get the best of both worlds living here, says John.

    The local village of Shobdon is a popular village having a number of amenities including a pub, primary school, village hall, church, thriving shop and post office. Transport links are also easily accessible with Leominster and Ludlow train stations a short distance away and a local bus service.

    When we purchased the property, it had been completely refurbished and modernised to an immaculate standard. It has comfortable accommodation of three bedrooms and a huge amount of character. The house is extremely cosy and warm especially in the winter because of the wood-burning stove. The rooms are also extremely light and spacious. The house retains character features yet is modern and easily maintained. The combination of both really works well, continues John.

    The house benefits from having beautifully landscaped gardens. It would be great for a keen gardener to continue this. In the summer it is wonderful for having dinner in the courtyard. The large kitchen/dining room is also extremely spacious and fantastic for entertaining purposes when you want to have friends and family over. There is enough space for everyone without it feeling overcrowded.

    2 Old School House would be the perfect home for a family or couple looking to relocate to a rural area with beautiful surroundings. We have really enjoyed living here and I am sure the next owners will be just as happy, concludes John*
