Enjoying a quiet rural location, and forming part of a very exclusive development, a large and beautifully appointed Listed period farmhouse with attractive gardens, garaging and workshop.

Lower Mawfield is quietly situated on a small country lane between the rural villages of Clehonger, Allensmore and Kingstone. Between them these villages offer a good range of local services including shops and schools. More extensive facilities are then available at the cathedral city of Hereford (6 miles) with a main line train station, and to the south at the market towns of Ross on Wye, Monmouth and Abergavenny.

The Old Farmhouse is a very attractive Grade II Listed property which forms the major portion of what was once a working farm. The house and farm buildings have now been converted into just five very individual private properties that form this exclusive development, in this unspoilt rural area. The original developers were keen to retain much of the original character of this lovely farmhouse whilst adding many benefits of modern living. There is oil fired central heating throughout with the addition of some underfloor heating, particularly in the kitchen. All the windows are double glazed, and the kitchen and main bathroom are beautifully appointed. There is a generous feeling of space in all the principal rooms which also extends to the garden which has a south westerly outlook and further enhances this lovely property.

From the courtyard, access can be gained to the front door and the entrance hall which gives access to a large but very comfortable sitting room. Ideal for entertaining, it includes a very impressive stone inglenook fireplace with fitted Clearview wood burner, high beamed ceiling and a dual aspect. There is a separate study or living room, again with a high beamed ceiling, oak floor and part glazed door which provides access to the gardens. The kitchen/breakfast room is beautifully appointed and creates the main hub of the house and features an attractive limestone floor, granite working surfaces, an extensive range of cupboards and drawers, fitted appliances including a Smeg five-ring cooker, a central workstation with an oak top and drawers below. A stable door provides access to outside and steps from the kitchen lead down to a breakfast room which also has a limestone floor, dual aspect and additional roof lights, providing plenty of natural light. The ground floor accommodation is then supported by a useful cloakroom, a cellar and a small but well fitted utility room.

From the reception hall a half-turn staircase rises to the first floor landing with access to roof space, fitted airing cupboard and doors to the master bedroom, which is on the south western side of the house, and has four sets of double wardrobes, extensive timbering and door to a well-appointed shower room. From here an adjoining door leads into a large double guest bedroom, again with a vaulted ceiling, dual aspect and fitted wardrobes. Bedroom three is also a good-sized double room, with fitted wardrobes and plenty of character. The bedrooms are supported by a well-appointed large luxury bathroom which includes a free-standing roll top bath.


The property is approached from a country lane by a shared driveway and then to a private parking area for the property. Here there is a large detached timber clad double garage which provides excellent storage space, with automatic doors, power and light (20ft 3 x 23ft 8). A gate to one side gives access to further parking area and to the gardens which lie mainly to the rear and side of the house and enjoy a south westerly aspect. They are laid predominately to lawn, interspersed with a variety of trees and shrubs. The gardens are well-enclosed and include a patio and sun deck. Finally, at one end of the garden there is a recently constructed timber garden/workshop on a concrete base with power and light.
