The extension to the right, with the straight forward conversion of the Home Office into a Kitchen, would create a spacious, self-contained Annexe. The substantial plot itself offers yet further potential for development encompassing 2 acres with a mixed fruit Orchard and Woodland planted in the 90s to the boundary.
Enjoying an elevated position some quarter mile from the main road the house benefits from delightful views across open countryside. 2 miles away the village of Burley Gate provides community-run shop with post office, vibrant village hall, Pre- and Primary schools while the hamlet of Felton is positioned an all but equidistant 9miles from Hereford city or the market towns of Bromyard and Leominster, with further afield the Malverns AONB and Worcester 22miles.
Entry Hall – Allowing light to flood into the building, the exposed half brick wall with timber glazed top defines the Entry.
Sitting Room – The expansive room’s key feature is twin bay windows framing lovely views over the front gardens and across open fields to the distant wooded uplands. The room is warmed by 2 fireplaces, to the far end a Woodburner and the second an oil-fed fire in woodburner-style.
Snug – Off the Sitting Room lies a currently open area before the Dining Room that would easily enclose a Snug or Home Office/ Study area. As with much of the downstairs, half walls naturally define and break up the sweeping open plan living space.
Dining Room – Featuring a large woodburner set in an exposed brick fireplace with wood mantelpiece, sliding patio doors lead directly out onto a paved private patio, ideal for outdoor dining. A door opens into a hallway leading into the Kitchen, while opposite behind curtains lies a deep alcove currently used for storage.
Family Room – Beyond the Dining Room opens the triple aspect Family Room with twin French doors opening to the front gardens. An expansive and light filled room offers a highly malleable space for family play with space enough for a full size pool table or numerous commercial endeavours.
Kitchen – The L-shaped Kitchen is laid out to accommodate a commercial one-way thoroughfare with open shelving, stainless steel double sinks with integral drainers to either side and ample space for washing machine, dryer along with several fridges and freezers. There is an oil-fired Aga with space beside it for a 5 burner LPG gas range for summer cooking, with to one corner the oil-fired boiler.
Utility – Partly incorporated into the Kitchen with its associated Hallways the Utility provides space for ample storage and is home to most of the meter and fuse boxes for the 3 Phase electric supply. There is also the meter for the 3kw solar power system on the south facing roof of the main house.
