Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 5
A beautifully positioned and charming country house, set in established gardens and grounds which extend to approximately 13 acres, with six bedroom living accommodation, two separate holiday cottages and a triple garage.

Situation and Description

Quietly situated on a small country lane, Clifford Place occupies a tucked-away and sought after location between the small village of Clifford and the hamlet of Priory Wood. Clifford lies above the beautiful Wye valley and is centred around a ruined castle, with village facilities include a primary school, church and village hall with more extensive services at the delightful market town of Hay on Wye, with its world renowned annual literary festival. More extensive facilities can then be found at the cathedral city of Hereford which lies approximately 20 miles away.

The house itself is well proportioned with accommodation laid out over four floors which would be ideal for a large family or could offer B&B potential. It retains a great deal of character and includes office space, utility space and ample storage on the lower ground floor with well-proportioned reception rooms, a well fitted kitchen and an excellent conservatory on the ground floor and at least five bedrooms and supporting bathrooms over the remaining two floors. The house is further enhanced by attractive and established gardens and land which extend to approximately 13 acres which surround the property providing privacy and protection. In addition, situated a short distance from the house, are a pair of semi-detached two and three bedroom holiday cottages which provide additional accommodation, or income potential if required. Clifford Place is available due to the retirement of the current owners and offers huge scope and potential for the discerning buyer in our view.

Gardens and Grounds

The gardens themselves form a particular feature, and in the main lie to the rear of the property. They are laid predominately to lawn with extensive floral and shrub borders and a variety of mature trees with greenhouse and small orchard to one side. To the front of the house is a large courtyard with wrought iron gates leading out onto the lane and central ornamental pond with further gate leading to the side of the property and the rear gardens. The land is divided into a number of enclosures, with water troughs, and is ideal for equestrian use or keeping a small head of stock together with an area of mixed woodland.

Outbuildings

From the lane a drive leads to a Triple Garage 33ft x 19ft 6 (10.05m x 5.94m) overall with three sets of electric automatic roller doors, power points and lighting, and woodstore at one end.
