A Grade II listed, well presented substantial family home with a separate cottage offering a further two bedrooms and open plan living space. Located in an area surrounded by countryside.
Situated 12 miles north of Hay On Wye, this highly impressive, seven bedroom Grade II listed family home with separate cottage. The property is set in its own grounds of around six acres with the peacefulness and tranquility of the Welsh countryside all around.
A gravel driveway leads you up to the main house with space for multiple vehicles outside. An enclosed porch leads you into the main entrance hall with its original Victorian tiled flooring and access to a number of reception rooms. The drawing room to the left benefits from dual aspect windows overlooking the front and rear lawns and has a marble surrounded, feature fireplace.
On your right as you enter the property, a door leads you into a multi-functional, nearly ten metre-long room. It is currently in use as a library and dining room with a snug area in front of the grand, inglenook fireplace with exposed original stonework and log burner. A number of rooms can be accessed from here as well as from the entrance hall, including the utility room, boiler room, an office, a wc with sink and two additional hallways giving access to them all.
Another door from the library/dining room leads you into the kitchen/breakfast room. This is another substantial room with space for a dining table, with a range of fitted units, a Belfast sink under one of the four windows, an AGA set into the fireplace, tiled flooring and a door to the rear courtyard.
The main living room sits to the side with its feature fireplace and access to a room currently housing a pool table and seating but which would equally well serve as a children's play room or separate dining room. There is also access to a hall with a door to the outside, stairs to the first floor. The versatility of the ground floor is obvious from the floor plan and the room dimensions create many different opportunities to adapt the property to suit your lifestyle.
In addition to the aforementioned stairs is the main staircase in the entrance hall. This takes you to the first floor and the seven bedrooms. Five of the bedrooms benefit from a mixture of en-suite bath and shower rooms and one offers a separate dressing room. There are two family bathrooms, one of which features a bath and separate shower cubicle. All of the bathrooms and en-suites have been tastefully refurbished to a very high standard to match the high standard and immaculate presentation of all the bedrooms.
The care and thought which has gone into refurbishing the entire property (and the cottage) is clear from the moment you step inside. This high quality is continued in the detached, cedar-clad cottage which was completely renovated in 2022. Accessed via a separate gravel driveway with its own parking area, the cottage features an open-plan living space with a vaulted ceiling, corner log-burner, fully-fitted kitchen/diner and six metre-wide lounge area. This is accessed through double doors from the main entrance hall which also gives access to a utility room with wc, a built-in storage cupboard and doors to the the two king-size bedrooms; both of which feature en-suite shower rooms.
There is obvious holiday let potential in the cottage or it could simply make an unforgettable experience for visiting family or friends.
The outside of the property is as impressive as the inside with a two-story coach house offering further useful storage or living spaces. There is a detached garage block with four garages (a double in the middle and two singles either side) which has an attic room above running the length of the building (nearly twelve metres in total). At the end of the block is a large wood store to keep all the log burners well supplied!
Immediately surrounding the property are extensive gardens, patio areas, established borders with various trees and shrubs and plenty of areas for outside entertaining. The peaceful surroundings are complemented by views through the Wye Valley to the Black Mountains beyond and the River Wye close-by.
This is most definitely a property which has to be seen to be fully appreciated. Our pictures and description could not ever do it justice. It exudes quality and luxury in every room and every space, inside and out and viewing is highly recommended.

Anti money laundering checks
Regulations require that we undertake identity and AML checks, and secure information on the circumstances of your purchase in line with our obligations to verify your identity and complete Customer Due diligence as part of you agreeing any offer with our client. These are dictated by regulation and enforced by trading standards. Whilst we retain responsibility for ensuring checks are carried out correctly and for ongoing monitoring, the initial checks are carried out on our behalf by Lifetime Legal who will contact you once you have agreed to instruct us in your sale or made an offer on a property you wish to buy that is provisionally agreeable to our client.
We have looked to provide benefits alongside undertaking these checks to ensure this is not an additional cost to you. These include complementary Lifetime Legal membership for 3 months, and where you use Chancellors Conveyancing services we have also arranged for this cost to include the AML/ Customer due diligence cost your solicitor would normally charge you for their regulated required checks. The cost of these checks is £80 inc VAT, which covers the cost of obtaining relevant data and any manual checks and monitoring which might be required. This fee is paid in advance, directly to Lifetime Legal and is non-refundable.
