Accommodation:
The accommodation of the main house is versatile and principally set over two floors. The main approach to the house from the front is welcoming, leading from an open porch, through arched double doors to a vestibule and then into an entrance hall with oak floor. This opens into a most attractive reception hall having a beamed ceiling, fireplace with woodburning stove, deep bay window and the oak main staircase.

The three reception rooms radiate off the central hallway and include the good-sized dining room with double aspect windows and the sitting room which features a fireplace and a deep south-facing bay with window seat. The large, square drawing room has a corniced ceiling, splendid open fireplace and this elegant reception room has four large windows on the south and west elevations.

The kitchen/breakfast room lies at the heart of the house. The well fitted kitchen has an oil-fired Aga and the breakfast room has double French doors which open into a conservatory. Adjacent to the breakfast room is a good-sized office and the present owners have had some initial schematics drawn up to reconfigure this area of the house to create a larger open plan kitchen with family room and new garden room/orangery. This rear wing of the house also houses a pantry, boot room and utility room with a gardener's WC accessed from outside.

The first floor of the house is served by two staircases with the principal stairs rising to a light galleried landing which can serve as an additional sitting area. The east wing of the house contains the master suite with the guest suite in the west wing, both having windows on two aspects and some wonderful views over the grounds and for miles beyond. The remainder of the first floor comprises three further double bedrooms, one single bedroom and two additional bathrooms whilst the second floor houses an attic bedroom.

Office and outbuildings:
Located to the north of the house is the former carriage house, a substantial detached building that now houses a well-appointed office, games room and shower room. The courtyard leads to a substantial, multi-purpose barn, about 45'5" x 31'0". This three-bay steel portal frame barn has a concrete floor, tall sliding entrance doors and a mezzanine floor to one bay.

Gardens and grounds:
The gardens at The Twern extend to about 3.36 acres. The main entrance drive provides a most impressive approach, flanked by estate railings, mature trees and rhododendrons with pasture beyond, leading to the main gravelled courtyard and the front porch of the house. There is a good-sized parking area flanked by closely clipped hedges, raised borders, rockery and areas of lawn.

The principal gardens on the south side are delightful. A large stone paved terrace adjoins the house with steps leading down to radiating gravel paths and beautifully landscaped areas including an interesting, low maintenance gravel garden. Beyond, expansive lawns lead out to the garden boundaries lined with some splendid trees whilst a heated swimming pool (MAINTAINED AS PART OF THE RENTAL) lies in a garden sheltered by high holly hedges and mature palm trees, set within a paved terrace with a south facing summer house. To the west of the house is a lawn and to the north a tennis court with an artificial grass surface and kitchen garden. THE LAWNS AND HEDGES ARE MAINTAINED AS PART OF THE RENTAL

Situation:
The popular market town of Ledbury, just 5 miles away and famous for its half-timbered buildings and fascinating market hall, provides an excellent selection of everyday amenities with some alluring places to drink and dine. For a greater range of services, Malvern, Cheltenham and the Cathedral Cities of Hereford, Gloucester and Worcester provide a comprehensive range of business, leisure and retail facilities.

The locality is very well served for schooling with a number of well-regarded primary and secondary schools together with the award winning Hereford Sixth Form College. An excellent selection of independent schools includes The Elms School, The Downs, Malvern College, Hereford Cathedral School, Cheltenham Ladies and Cheltenham College. Junction 2 of the M50 is 10 miles distant providing a swift connection to the M5. There are direct trains from Ledbury Station to both Birmingham New Street (from about 1 hour 10 minutes) and to London Paddington (from about 2 hours 45 minutes).

Pets welcome, Minimum rental term 24 months, Available April 2020
