20 The Southend
is a Grade II listed townhouse of period origin which is believed to have originally been a blacksmiths cottage. With internal timber framing and much character, the front facade is of a later Georgian period with the house built of an attractive red brick under a classic clay tile roof. To the rear is a large garden, quite unusual for a townhouse and accessed via a covered passageway adjacent to the neighboring property. To the rear of this house is a conservatory extension behind the compact kitchen and then a detached rudimentary summerhouse. Currently a 3 bedroom house and in need of significant modernisation, this originally had 4 bedrooms and could be reinstated relatively easily.
Education There is a broad range of both private and state schooling in the area. Primary and secondary schooling is available in Ledbury, with ample well respected private schools in the area. Prep schools close by include The Elms and The Downs at Colwall. More information is available on www.isc.co.uk for independent schools and www.herefordshire.gov.uk for state schools.
Ledbury has a thriving community which offers a good range of local amenities and most daily domestic supplies with many independent shops, two supermarkets, sports amenities and a cottage hospital. There are a wider range of amenities in Malvern and Worcester with more cultural opportunities and retail therapy easily accessible in Cheltenham. The surrounding area offers a wide range of outdoor sports and activities with the Malvern Hills and the Wye Valley within easy access.
