Alveston House

Alveston House is an historic Ledbury property, formerly a coach builders yard (denoted by the prominent signage), dating from the 19th Century. Hopkins Coachbuilders were in business until the 1950's.
The entrance door leads off the street through an inner lobby to ground floor accommodation, with access to the stairs and a downstairs WC.
The spacious sitting room benefits from French doors opening to the rear garden, engineered wooden flooring, and a contemporary gas fire, providing a lovely feature for this comfortable room.
A fitted kitchen leads off the sitting room, combining a breakfast room also with access to the garden. The kitchen benefits from an integrated double oven with separate gas hob with extractor hood, and fridge. An attractive bay window, overlooking the garden, and a roof lantern provide lots of natural light for this open plan space.
A separate, formal dining room with beautiful original floorboards is also accessed off the sitting room and features an original sash window. This room has scope for a variety of other uses, such as a snug/tv room, children's playroom, or home office.
