There are few houses which can boast such fine qualities and exquisite finishes as those of The Wain House. The house is one of a small number of luxury converted link detached barn residences approached through a courtyard but with its own frontage and parking for a number of vehicles. Located in the attractive tiny village of Ashford Bowdler just three miles south of the historic medieval town of Ludlow. This delightful family house combines all the character and style of a period country home with extra special comforts of modern contemporary living convenience finished to the highest specifications.


The property combines stylish modern comforts with the proportions and substance of a traditional barn conversion. Leading from the spacious and light hallway, the ground floor features an open plan kitchen/dining room with views over the front courtyard garden. Very much the heart of this superb home, this area centres around a statement claret Aga, framed by hand painted bespoke oak cabinetry providing ample storage and display space. The kitchen also includes an under the counter convection oven, induction hob, butler sink, integrated dishwasher and large fridge/freezer. Off the kitchen lies the utility room with fitted cabinets for additional storage, the central heating boiler and space for a washer dryer. A doorway leads out to a small enclosed courtyard that houses the oil tank and a wood store. The main living room features an impressive vaulted ceiling with large statement light fittings. The internal feature wall showcases the original barn brickwork and beams, with a small window looking into the adjacent room. A wood burning stove under a timber mantle recessed in a stunning full height chimney breast and radiator keep the room warm and cosy. Oak framed patio doors perfectly frame and open up into the main rear garden. The adjacent room would work well as a study, snug or playroom. There is also a downstairs cloakroom and under stairs storage cupboard.


On the first floor you cannot fail to appreciate the timber framework of the barn, with vaulted ceilings in every room, and skylights that flood the landing with natural light. The master bedroom is very generously proportioned with beautiful beams, a small fitted cupboard and ample space for wardrobes and a king sized bed. An exquisitely finished en suite shower leads off the bedroom. There are two further double bedrooms, each with exposed timber framework and windows overlooking the front courtyard gardens. Finally the recently refurbished family bathroom has an over the bath shower and modern feature tiling

Gardens and Outbuildings

From the reception room you enter the enclosed south facing rear garden, which has been professionally designed, landscaped and very well maintained and is a delight to experience. There is a large patio area perfect to enjoy the evening sunsets and a vine covered walkway leading to the main lawned area which weaves through the flower beds. The garden has plenty of storage, including a large wooden shed/workshop, a greenhouse and small log store. The beds provide a wealth of trees and mature shrubs, with planting providing year round colour.

To the front of the property is an enclosed gravelled courtyard with planted beds, providing parking for up to five vehicles. A converted single storey outbuilding at the bottom of the drive, features full height glazing providing the perfect multi-use space. Divided into two parts, the larger would work well as a gym, studio or office. The second smaller area is currently used for additional storage with potential development opportunity to convert into a garage subject to planning.


Mains electricity, oil fired boiler, mains water and a septic tank.
