Nightingales is situated in the sought after village location of Wellington Heath, just 2½ miles from the vibrant and popular market town of Ledbury, which is located east of Hereford and south west of the renowned and beautiful Malvern Hills. The property benefits from a quiet and private location, with excellent commuter road, rail and bus links to the larger commercial centres of Hereford, Gloucester and Cheltenham. The surrounding countryside is characterised by traditional farms, pastureland and wooded hills and is renowned for its scenic and unspoilt rural appeal.
Built in 2007 for the current owners, Nightingales is a wonderful example of a great family home, incorporating a traditional, country home style with modern facilities, and has been built to a high standard throughout using good quality materials.
The ground floor rooms all lead off a spacious entrance hall with attractive slate flooring, and the rooms are light, spacious and well proportioned.
A fabulous, solid wood bespoke kitchen (Parlour Farm Kitchens) and breakfast/dining room forms the heart of this super home, offering plenty of storage, an integrated dishwasher, fridge, and a Mercury range cooker. A useful utility room leads off the kitchen and has space for additional white goods and direct access to the patio terrace and garden.
The sitting room is very spacious and light, and features a large, brick built inglenook fireplace with stone hearth and a Clearview wood-burner, perfect for those winter evenings. Two sets of bi-fold doors lead out to a raised balcony terrace with oak-framed colonnade where one can enjoy the wonderful views.
A good sized, separate study offers an ideal space for home working, or could be used as an additional reception room, such as a TV/play room. There is also a wet room incorporating a WC on the ground floor and large, built-in cloak cupboard off the main hall.
Upstairs there are 5 double bedrooms, including a spacious principal room with double aspect, en-suite and built in storage/wardrobes. There is a further large double room with en-suite, 3 additional double rooms and a family bathroom with separate bath and shower.

The property is approached off a quiet village lane via a pair of 5-bar timber gates, leading to an ample gravelled parking area and the large double garage.
The property sits in an elevated and private position with wonderful views over the neighbouring countryside and beyond. Steps lead up to the oak-framed porch and patio terraces, framed by mature planting including lavender and traditional roses.
A large and private patio terrace lies to the rear of the property with steps leading up to a lawned garden. The rest of the garden, c. 1/3 Acre, is situated to the side of the property and incorporates a good-sized lawned area, apple, pear and damson trees and a veg patch, which could easily be extended. There is plenty of scope for keen gardeners, if desired.
