Situation and Description
This lovely period house forms part of the highly sought after and well-established residential area known as Broomy Hill, on the western side of the cathedral city of Hereford. Both the cathedral and an extensive range of shopping facilities are within easy walking distance with a choice of shops, restaurants, leisure facilities and much more. The beautiful River Wye is also within easy reach and offers fishing, canoeing and some lovely riverside walks. There are also good road and rail links to other parts of the country.
The house has remained in the same family for many, many years and now offers a wonderful opportunity to buy a blank canvas and create a very comfortable home. There is huge potential to extend if required with the spacious living accommodation being supported by a good cellar and a number of useful outbuildings at the rear.
Approached by its own gated driveway, which sweeps up to the house, a front door leads into a south facing sunroom. The main hall has a decorative archway and fielded panel doors that give access to a very large drawing room, which would be ideal for entertaining. There is a walk-in bay window overlooking the gardens, fitted bookshelves and a number of period features. A separate dining room could double as a second sitting room and also has a bay window at the front.
The kitchen offers lots of potential and has an original pine dresser, fitted corner cupboard and a quarry tiled floor and a range of fitted units. The ground floor accommodation is supported by a utility room, which houses the gas fired boiler, and a useful shower room as well as a good two roomed cellar which provides workshop space. To the rear there is a small courtyard and a range of useful outbuildings including a garage.
A staircase from the hall rises to the first floor where there are four double bedrooms, one with an extensive range of wardrobes, a separate boxroom and a family bathroom and WC. Most of the bedrooms have an attractive outlook over the gardens or towards Hereford.
The gardens and plot form a particular feature of the house. They are surprisingly private and well enclosed keeping the house hidden from the road. They are well established with a number of mature trees, well stocked borders and lawned areas particularly to one side. There is plenty of parking and turning space and a useful greenhouse for the keen gardener.
