Situation The property is situated in the quiet hamlet of Coddington in East Herefordshire, just a short drive from the village of Colwall, the market town of Ledbury, and Great Malvern, surrounded by gently rolling countryside with the stunning backdrop of the Malvern Hills. This desirable location offers a peaceful rural idyll, with good accessibility and benefits from excellent road and rail links to the rest of the country, with mainline links to London from Colwall, Ledbury and Malvern.

Longhill House * Built in 1959, Longhill House has been in the same ownership since the late 70's. The house has mostly white aluminium double glazed doors and windows throughout (with some UPVC) and although perfectly liveable, would benefit from a schedule of updating works. It offers huge scope for extensions or re-modelling (subject to the necessary consents) if required.

* The house boasts four good sized double bedrooms, two of which are dual aspect and both front bedrooms take in the superb rural views towards Hay Bluff. There is also a generous landing and a family bathroom on the first floor.

* On the ground floor, steps lead up to the front garden room, designed to take in the views and this leads to the main entrance hall (with an oak floor under the carpet). The sitting room is a lovely dual aspect room with part oak flooring, an Esse wood burner and patio doors into the garden room.

* There is a kitchen with some fitted units, a sink and space for a cooker but this room would benefit from a modern replacement/upgrade. Also on the ground floor is a dining room, a WC, rear hallway with a good-sized storeroom, and a utility room with a fitted sink unit and space and plumbing for a washing machine.

The Outside * Longhill House is approached over its own private driveway culmination in a hardstanding parking area. There are generous lawned gardens surrounding the property with an area of vegetable gardens, greenhouse, useful storage sheds and summer house. At the rear is a secluded patio area and at the side, a lovely old orchard.

* A path from the gardens leads down to the former quarry. This has its own vehicular access off the lane and offers plenty of further parking. There is also a range of very useful buildings here, comprising:

A modern open fronted barn (11.5m x 6m), a block of 3, block-built stables (10.7m x 4.2m), an open pole barn (7m x 5.4m), a brick-built garage with concrete floor (6m x 5m), small range of brick-built storage sheds (10m x 4m)

* On the opposite side of the lane is another small area of former quarry, which is naturally re-wilding.
