Ludlow is famed for its fine gastronomic reputation, independent shops, interesting & historic architecture. The vibrant festivals and sense of community are still popular with locals and visitors alike.

Bridgnorth, known as the gateway to Shropshire, plays host to several wonderful shops and drinking & dining establishments and is also home to the famous Severn Valley Railway. There is a Marks & Spencer food hall as well as several other supermarkets, delicatessens and boutique shops.

Communications in the area are excellent. The B4364 connects Ludlow to Bridgnorth where good road links connect to the M54 and national motorway network. The A454 can be picked up at Bridgnorth and provides easy access to Wolverhampton and the West Midlands conurbation.

The House
Believed to have been built in the early 1900's, Batchmore was the former laundry house to the Burwarton Estate which "comprise of 11,000 acres in the vicinity of the Brown Clee Hill which, at 540m, is the highest point in the county and is part of the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty".   Interestingly, the nearby "Laundry Coppice" on the estate would most likely have provided the wood for the fires for the hot water system in the laundry.

Since having been transformed & renovated previously in the 1980's and more recently by our clients in the early 2000's the house now has excellent accommodation and proportions and provides a most impressive family home.

Approached from the lane via a private gravelled driveway the property has parking for several vehicles and is flanked by the stables and outbuilding. The house can be entered via the front door which opens in to a bright and welcoming porch which in turns leads to the central hallway. The double return staircase rises to the first floor and the hallway provides access to the impressive sitting room, with its high ceilings and large central fireplace housing a Clearview log burning stove. Full height glazed double doors lead into a central dining room which is currently utilised as a study, which in turn leads back in to the central hall.

A second inner hall provides access to the cosy snug and as well to the utility room which also serves as a useful boot room with a WC nearby.

The pleasant Winchmore kitchen has beautiful handmade units under a granite work surface and is tastefully presented. A seating island with useful storage drawers sits at one end with doors leading out to the garden, whilst at the other end, past the LPG fired Aga, a butler sink and units with integrated appliances, full height double doors provide access out into the garden room.

This impressive room provides excellent family space, with wonderful views over the gardens. With ample space for a dining tables & chairs and sofas this room truly is the heart of the home.

To the first floor are 3 bedrooms, including the master bedroom with ensuite bathroom and separate dressing room secreted behind wood panelled walls. This room could double as a bedroom if required. The additional guest bedrooms are served by a well-appointed family bathroom.

The second-floor plays host to two further bedrooms, a shower room and a further room which is currently utilised as a cinema room but could easily double as an additional seventh bedroom.

Outbuildings
There are several outbuildings consisting of a brick and slate tiled stable block, log store, garden stores and small open barn. There is a larger outbuilding which is currently used as storage but would serve well as secondary accommodation (with the relevant consents), offices, studios or play rooms. There is water, power and networking to this building.

Gardens & Grounds
The grounds are split into several parts. The gardens surround the house and include formal gardens, lawns, a kitchen garden, a rose garden, a tennis lawn and an ornamental pond.

There are two paddocks which are served by a holding/turning out paddock and a 60m x 20m riding arena.
