THREE PROPERTIES, 9 ACRES - An extremely versatile and unique country property, in a highly sought-after location, comprising four individual properties all set in 9 acres of established gardens and grounds, ideal for extended families, or to provide income potential.

Situation and Description

This detached property is unusual and interesting property and lies in south Herefordshire in a very attractive rural setting, with far reaching views over the Wye Valley. In an area of outstanding natural beauty, it occupies a quiet location yet provides easy access to nearby villages, and to the market towns of Ross on Wye and Monmouth to the south and south west. These offer an excellent range of facilities as well as easy road access via the M50 and A40 to the Midlands and south Wales. To the north lies the cathedral city of Hereford which has an extensive range of shops, services and restaurants as well as a main line train station.

The Lodge

We understand The Lodge was built in 1816, and was part of Kynaston House estate. The main house has not survived and was demolished in 1928 leaving The Lodge , which is a very attractive house in its own right and is set in some of the original parkland together with the remnants of the kitchen gardens and some 9 acres of land. These also include a very comfortable two bedroomed single storey dwelling, as well as a two bedroomed Park Home, both having their own access independent from the main house. Between them they offer very comfortable additional accommodation, which would be ideal for use by extended family or for creating extra income. The land is also very adaptable with fenced paddocks, ideal for equestrian use or a small head of stock, with field shelters, a large steel framed barn and additional buildings offering considerable potential for a variety of uses. There are then separate areas of woodland, a well-equipped and independent log cabin and much more.

On arrival wrought iron gates provide access to the main house with an entrance porch and solid pine front door leading into an impressive sitting room which is full of character, with mullioned bay window to the front, fireplace with wood burner, exposed ceiling timbers and doors to rear decking with far reaching views. There is a separate dining room, as well as a side entrance hall and a well-appointed kitchen/breakfast room which has a dual aspect with lovely views. Fittings include a hob and oven, dishwasher, fridge, freezer and a useful central workstation and breakfast bar. The kitchen is then supported by rear hall with access to the gardens and a cloakroom/ utility, with space for appliances. In addition, a comfortable ground floor study and separate home office provide quiet space away from the main house. On the first floor the main bedroom has wonderful views with its own balcony, a vaulted ceiling, and its own walk in wardrobe and separate dressing room. There are three further individual bedrooms all supported by a family bathroom.

The house is approached by its own private gated entrance and drive which provides parking and turning space and gives access to the house and gardens. The gardens surround the property and are well established with well stocked herbaceous borders and mature trees and shrubs including an impressive Wellingtonia. The main gardens lie to the rear, with lawns sweeping away from the house with patio well positioned to make the most of the beautiful views over the Wye Valley. There are pathways around the house which give access to a greenhouse and garden store/ workshop.

The Haven

The main drive continues and passes The Haven, which has recently been refurbished, and offers excellent living accommodation for an extended family or could be used to provide a rental income or as a holiday let. This property has been designed with potential for a loft conversion, subject to any permission required. The hallway has ample room for a staircase leading into the large open roof area, which could accommodate a minimum of two bedrooms/office and shower/wc. It can be accessed from a separate drive belonging to The Lodge which importantly means both properties can be independent of each other. This property is well proportioned throughout and includes a large porch, well fitted kitchen, dining room, lounge two bedrooms and a bathroom.

Treetops

In addition, and adding further income potential is a park home known as Treetops. This is situated away from the main house and is set in its own pretty and well stocked gardens with greenhouse and summer house. Treetops currently provides two-bedroom living accommodation with a dual aspect lounge with far reaching views and fitted kitchen.

Outbuildings and Land

The second drive provides direct access to the land which extends to approximately 9 acres and is divided between a number of fenced paddocks with two field shelters, areas of mixed woodland and a range of former farm buildings and what remains of the original kitchen gardens. B1 and 2 planning permission has been granted for conversion of the barn and outbuildings, into light industrial or storage units, providing further opportunity for rental income.
