Property Details

Situated around seven miles to the south of the City of Hereford, down a long private track, is this detached, four bedroom property set in splendid rural isolation and surrounded by beautiful open countryside.

The main entrance leads you into a hallway with a door to the wc on the left. This leads into the main reception room. At over six metres by six metres squared, this is a wonderful space complete with windows looking out over the front and rear, a gorgeous hardwood floor, feature fireplace with log burner, and a bespoke curved staircase to the first floor. With the windows and the recessed ceiling spotlights, the room has a bright and airy feel.

The kitchen to one side is also a lovely space. It features fitted wall and floor units with room for white goods and a range cooker. To one end there is room for a table and chairs under a vaulted ceiling and the room has an exposed beam and hardwood floor. Double doors at the other end lead into the conservatory with its access to the outside.

Another door from the reception room leads into what is currently used as a study; but would equally well serve as a separate dining room, children’s play room or snug. The accommodation throughout the whole property is highly versatile and could be easily adapted to suit your needs. For example, one of the four bedrooms is on the ground floor; but could be used for another purpose still leaving you with the three further bedrooms on the first floor.

There is a garage with internal access to the main house via a large larder - ideal for all kinds of storage.

Upstairs, there are the aforementioned three further bedrooms which all have use of the two bathrooms, one with double shower cubicle and one with a bath. The corridor along the back of the property, from which all these upstairs room lead, has multiple windows to make the most of the views.

The separate annex has obvious income generating potential coming, as it does, with two bedrooms, shower room, kitchen/dining space and lounge area. It is clad in wood to give a log cabin-style appearance and would be a great overflow for visiting friends and family as well as offering you income opportunities, subject to the necessary permissions.

The grounds around the property offer a wealth of opportunities for becoming self-sufficient with plenty of space for growing your own food and keeping animals. There are also solar panels to help with keeping energy costs down. There is a large parking area to the front with room for multiple vehicles.

This is a truly unique proposition with lots of potential to develop and make your own. Words and pictures could not ever do it justice; so we would be delighted to discuss it in more detail with you. Viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate what is on offer.

Why owner loves the property:

We bought this property 15 years ago with the intention of bringing up our children and it has been perfect for that. They are now flying the nest! The things I will miss the most about the property is the magnificent views in all directions, the wonderful combination of isolation and easy connectivity to civilisation. The nearest neighbour is 5 minutes walk away but by road the nearest town, Hereford, is only 10 minutes drive away and the village only 2 minutes. However, the biggest factor I will miss is the very cheap running costs of the house. We've spent the last 15 years constantly adding to the eco-friendly nature of the house. It now has quadruple glazing (two lots of double glazing!), between 100mm (in the walls) to 300mm (in the roof) of Kingspan insulation and a very efficient wood-burner which means that although there is the option of lpg central heating this rarely gets switched on. The very thick stone walls act as thermal mass so heat remains in the building long after the wood burner has gone out. We have also had very good quality solar pv panels fitted which produce nearly as much in feed tariff revenue as the electricity bills. We also have our own well, pump and septic tank so no water rates! You may wonder how this is all the case and yet the EPC rating is so low. This is due to the fact that the EPC algorithms don't apply common sense. Because the house is old (18th century in the main) and has an lpg supply, this all counts against it, whereas the reality is that the old, thick walls act as really good thermal mass with the exterior insulation and the lpg is only used regularly for the gas cooker and the bulk tank, buried in the garden, lasts for years. We are selling as we are moving to a boat to sail around the world.
