A magnificent Victorian country residence occupying an elevated position in the highly desirable village of Lugwardine, Hereford.
Originally called â€˜Rose bankâ€™ this magnificent example of Victorian architecture was built in 1864. The eldest son of the Godwin family of renowned tile makers commissioned the house and fine examples of tiles can be seen both internally and externally. The house is full of original features and many examples of period updating over the following years.
Approached by a gated double driveway sweeping past the imposing entrance, it stands proudly in its setting of 2 acres.
The main house has extensive accommodation which includes but is not limited to a 40ft grand reception hall, drawing room, morning room, dining room, library and observatory as well as a large principle kitchen/breakfast room. There are 11 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, as well as servantsâ€™ stairs, incredibly large cellar, butlers pantry and housekeepers room.
Outside the house sits in well tended grounds which include a walled garden sheltering a heated swimming pool and hot tub as well as a large heated 5 car garage.
Within the grounds there are also four other dwellings including two one bedroom cottages, an annexe and a two bedroom bungalow. Whilst the property would benefit from some updating and continued maintenance, it retains many impressive original features and has kept its character and charm. At over 7000 square foot, viewing is essential to truly appreciate this house fully.
