LOWER House is situated above the attractive village of Adforton and a short distance from the village of Leintwardine.

The excellent village amenities include a local butcher, fantastic village shop and petrol station, two popular pubs, a primary school, library, doctors surgery and fish and chip shop. The active community centre hosts regular events.

Dating back to the 17th century, Lower House is a substantial period property with traditional charm providing excellent versatile accommodation. Lower House was originally the principle farmhouse of village and is believed to have been much extended in the middle of the Victorian era.

The property is currently used as a successful family run 4* B&B and a comfortable family home.

The accommodation to the ground floor comprises kitchen/breakfast room with Aga, adjacent utility room, pantry, cloakroom, triple aspect sitting room, superb dining room with large inglenook fireplace, drawing room with garden views and a study.

The first floor has four double bedrooms all with shower en suites and two further bedrooms served by family bathrooms one with a roll top bath and separate shower and one with a spa bath. The current vendors use four of the six bedrooms as B&B letting rooms.

There are three cottages in addition to Lower House.

The Stable Cottage has two bedrooms and a bathroom and adjoining this is a workshop/stable which could be incorporated into Stable Cottage to make it a totally independent secondary accommodation. The Stable Cottage is currently used as an overflow letting suite for the B&B business.

Adjoining the Stable Cottage is a car port with large loft above.

The Granary is currently divided into two self-contained cottages named Oats Cottage and Barley Cottage which are both currently let on assured shorthold agreements.

The accommodation in Oats Cottage comprises a sitting room, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and cot room/study.
