Property Details

An intriguing property for those wishing to live a little differently; what it lacks in convention it more than makes up for with quirkiness and versatility.

Externally the property resembles a traditional mid-19th century school house but it is inside where the property really takes on an identity of its own. Upon entering through the beautifully sized entrance hall you are treated to a cornucopia of rooms ready to be explored.

The grand dining hall with high, vaulted ceilings and a Gothic window will add gravitas to even the humblest of dinner parties; the high windows flood the room with light whilst offering perfect privacy for even the most boisterous of gatherings. You can then move on through to the cosiest of snugs to a stunning miniature wrought-iron spiral staircase that adds a touch of drama to your ascent to the spectacular living area. The living space sits on a cleverly raised platform that serves the dual function of providing discreet storage whilst bringing the floor up to window level, maximising enjoyment of the glorious, uninterrupted views across the Herefordshire countryside. The views aren’t the only ‘wow’ factor in this room; it boasts high vaulted ceilings and a mezzanine to support the library.

From the living room you can ascend again to the delightfully located study that looks down over the main living space so you will never feel too far from the action. This leads on to the master suite, a further bedroom with an additional Gothic window, also placed to enjoy the evening sun, and wonderfully private guest accommodation of two bedrooms with en suite facilities. A second staircase leads down to another snug, pantry and a beautifully appointed fitted kitchen. The kitchen adds a little modernity to an otherwise traditional property with extensive contemporary units, built in appliances and granite topped work surfaces and has the added benefit of an adjoining breakfast room with access to the terrace. One of the more surprising aspects of the property is an enormous tucked-away room currently serving as a games room, utility and bar; this curious combination of functions contrives to offer a relaxed retreat when a change of mood is in order.

Attached to the main house is an enchanting fully self-contained annexe well positioned for those keen to enjoy a second income via the thriving AirBnB market.

The house is surrounded by a charmingly landscaped garden offering plenty of interest for both the keen gardener and inquisitive children keen to explore and comes complete with a summer house and outside toilet. The property is completed by a double garage and an adjacent shed and wood store.
