Annexe potential - Dinedor


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 5
Offering huge potential but now requiring some modernisation and improvement, an extensive converted mill offering sizeable and adaptable living accommodation, situated within easy striking distance of Hereford city with indoor pool and separate annexe.

The Old Mill lies in south east Herefordshire, only 4 miles from Hereford city centre. The city provides an extensive range of facilities and services together with a main line train station, a choice of schools, an excellent choice of shops and much more. There are local services at the villages of Holme Lacy, Mordiford, Fownhope and Little Dewchurch which, between them, are all within easy driving distance. The property itself we understand was a local corn mill and bakery, which ceased trading just before the Second World War. The property was then converted to create a large and very versatile living accommodation with plenty of elbow room throughout. There are light and airy reception rooms and good-sized bedrooms, with all having their own en suite facilities. At one end there is a leisure area with an indoor swimming pool and a snooker room or games room. The majority of rooms also have an attractive outlook over the gardens to the front. Further benefits include double glazing and oil fired central heating and a separate annexe and double garage.

On arrival, wrought iron gates lead onto the driveway which passes the front of the house. A canopy entrance porch and large front door lead into a very welcoming reception hall, with ceiling cornicing, access to a separate cloakroom and doors through to a very impressive drawing room with a high ceiling, large stone corner fireplace, decorative archway and windows overlooking the gardens. There is a separate dining room, ideal for entertaining, a conservatory and a good-sized study or snug. The kitchen is well-appointed with a range of fitted cupboards, range style cooker and built in dishwasher. This is supported by a good size utility room which houses the central heating boiler, storeroom and second cloakroom. At the far end of The Old Mill, double doors from the drawing room lead into a leisure area and pool room with a central pool 20ft x 12ft with a depth of 3ft rising to 6ft; this is heated by an oil fired central heating boiler. There are French doors which open out to the gardens. A hallway provides access to changing room/bathroom with wc and to a good-sized games room or family room, ideal for a variety of uses. There is also space for a gymnasium with another wc.

From the main reception hall, a staircase leads to a first-floor landing with a door and steps leading back down to the rear of the property. There are five principal bedrooms, all with their own character with many enjoying lovely views over the gardens to farmland beyond. All of the bedrooms have en suite facilities with the master suite also having the advantage of a large dressing room. The accommodation is very versatile and, in our view, could be re-configured to create more bedrooms if required.

A short distance from the main house is a separate annexe with an adjoining double garage approached from the driveway. This has mainly been used for storage in recent years and requires some improvement but in brief comprises a living room, kitchen/breakfast room, bathroom and wc on the ground floor with a first-floor living/bedroom area.

The gardens in the main lie to the front of the property and are mainly laid to lawn interspersed with mature trees and herbaceous borders. At the end of the garden is a small brook, which creates a delightful feature, particularly in the summer. To the rear of the house, wrought iron gates provide access to a large brick-paved driveway allowing further parking if required.
