Reader’s House is Described by Sir Nikolaus Pevsner as ‘an extremely picturesque piece of Ludlow blackandwhite’ this is undoubtedly one of the finest properties of its type to be found in the country with the fabulous three-storey timber-framed porch with elaborate cravings that have been described as \’a masterpiece of Ludlow carving\’. Readers’ House has fulfilled a number of functions and dates back to the early 17th Century.Painstakingly renovated and rescued from inclusion on the Buildings at Risk Register by the current owners, this property has been restored and modernised to accentuate the wonderful features throughout whilst providing accommodation suitable for contemporary living. Winning the inaugural “Heritage Award of the Year”, the comprehensive modernisation has included the refurbishment of much of the building, whilst it has also been rewired, re plumbed, has had a new central heating system fitted, two new bathrooms and a new kitchen. Unusually for a property of its age
I don’t often post semi-detached houses on here – in fact this might be the first, but I thought this was worthy of adding. It’s in the beautiful historic town of Ludlow. I visited Ludlow in August and enjoyed walking round the lovely town and castle.
The floors look really well polished. The front door is amazing. A real piece of history.
