Breinton, Hereford

Guide price

Bedrooms: 6
An imposing late 1930's detached house standing alone at the end of a long drive beside old Herefordshire orchards and farmland. Coming to the market for the first time this interesting old family home is set in 17.5 acres of level pasture with beautiful commanding views to the south. The accommodation, although now dated, offers a wonderful opportunity for buyers to form a fine country residence with at least 5 bedrooms (one with a wide balcony), large drawing room, dining room, music room, conservatory and kitchen/breakfast and games room. A sweeping drive provides plenty of parking and gives access to a range of outbuildings as well as the mature private gardens which include a walled garden and old swimming pool. Rarely does a house such as this come available with these combined features and land so convenient to Hereford - must be viewed. No ongoing chain.


The Village of Breinton is one of the most sought after parts of Herefordshire, being located a short driving distance to the west of the City Centre in very picturesque open countryside, a short distance from the River Wye. The area is dotted with old orchards with lovely gently sloping countryside and old buildings including Breinton Church. Off the small network of country lanes there are many footpaths with walks to be enjoyed.

Hereford city, just 2 miles away provides a comprehensive range of shopping, leisure and educational facilities.
