The popular market town of Ludlow is a thriving market town and an architectural gem with a lively community feel, busy with events and festivals throughout the year.

Orleton House dates back to the 1500s and is a Grade II Listed, timber framed, six bedroom house. The property has been meticulously modernised to an extremely high standard keeping its original features with all the added luxury of 21st Century living. The ground floor boasts an entrance hall, dining room, sitting room with log burner, large open-plan kitchen / breakfast room, snug / play room, utility room with back door and downstairs WC and a large drawing room.

An impressive Oak staircase leads to the first floor landing giving access to six bedrooms and two bathrooms. All the rooms benefit from beautiful views of either the gardens or the courtyard across the village and surrounding countryside.

The well maintained garden, which is principally lawned, is located around the house with an enclosed courtyard to the west, surrounded by a traditional stone wall and accessed through a wooden gate. Beyond the garden is a tennis court. There is ample parking at the front of the property within the courtyard. Various intimate seating areas and a paved terrace to the front of the house complete the gardens making this a truly charming property. Across the courtyard is a large traditional outbuilding with various divisions currently used as storage. This could be converted into several properties, auxiliary accommodation including a self-contained annexe, holiday cottages or a home office subject to the relevant planning approval. Planning permission has been granted to build a three car garage with wood store.

Directions: From Ludlow take the B4361 Richards Castle Road. Carry on into Orleton and turn left opposite the Bakers Arms into the village. At the crossroads, turn left and the property is on the left-hand side, just past The Boot Inn.
