A very rare opportunity to acquire a grand and spacious ground floor section of a breath taking country house, within an idyllic country village location.
Entrance Hall – Kitchen/Dining Room w/ AGA – Sitting Room – Utility Room – Rear Hallway – 3 Bedrooms – Bathroom – Private Parking – Large Garden
The Morgans is the ground floor section of a stunning wing of a country house, situated within the Herefordshire village of Stoke Lacy, close the market town of Bromyard. The building is a fine example of early to mid 19th architecture with low pitched hipped slate roofs, stone mullion bays with elegant sash windows, and fine brickwork, adorned with a mature wisteria.
This 3 bedroom apartment offers excellent accommodation throughout, and whilst it is an apartment it feels more like a house, making it a viable option for young families and couples. There is a large garden to the rear and ample parking to the front. The Morgans occupies the ground floor of what was an extension to the adjoining Rectory, once owned by the Morgan family, famed for their unique sports car manufacturing, still in production today in nearby Malvern.
Stoke Lacy is an idyllic village in east Herefordshire and offers a popular public house, a pretty church and village hall, community woodland, bucolic walks and is conveniently only 4 miles from the more extensive and charming town of Bromyard. Bromyard has a wide range of amenities including shops, supermarkets, public houses, banks, doctors surgeries, dental practice and schools. The Cathedral city of Hereford is 10 miles, the popular market town of Ledbury 11 miles, Leominster 13 miles and Worcester 18 miles. Hereford, Ledbury and Leominster have main line train stations.
The Morgans is approached via a large gravelled carriageway to the front of the property, providing parking space for several vehicles. A wood panelled front door with transom fanlight window above, opens into a welcoming and wide entrance hall. On the left there is kitchen/dining room, and further down on the right a beautifully proportioned sitting room. Opposite the sitting room door is the bathroom. A stunning wide hallway spans the width of the property with sash window at one end and steps at the far end to a further hallway leading to the garden. From the wide hallway there is a second door into the siting room, a door to an inner hall and doors to two of the three bedrooms. The inner hall leads to a utility room, cloakroom/WC, storage cupboard, third bedroom and a further door to the main bedroom which is also accessed via the wide hallway.
The kitchen/dining room has superb period proportions with high ceilings, ornate cornicing and a four oven Aga. It enjoys a dual aspect with a square bay with tall sash windows flooding the room with natural light. It has a classic country kitchen feel with the flooring part exposed floorboards, and part carpeted, dividing the kitchen space and breakfast/dining area. There are fitted base units and composite worktop with tiled splash backs and an inset stainless steel sink and drainer with mixer tap. There are wall lights above the kitchen area, and a pendant light above the dining area. There is a free standing wooden island opposite the Aga which has green glazed tile splashbacks. The breakfast area has plenty of room for a big family kitchen table and chairs, and there is space for additional kitchen cupboards and furniture such as a dresser.
Continuing back into the entrance hall, the sitting room can be found on the right. This beautiful grand and spacious room has enviable proportions and a front facing stunning bay with four elegant margin style sash windows providing an abundance of natural light. There is plenty of space for several large items of furniture with room to spare. There is a brick fireplace with a marbled slate surround, and fitted glass fronted display cabinets with inset lighting. There are two pendant lights and a second part glazed door to the wide hallway behind.
The bathroom is carpeted and has obscured glazed sash windows. There is a pedestal basin, WC, walk in bath with electric shower above and fitted cupboards, one housing the hot water tank.
The main bedroom is at the back of the property and is accessed from either the inner hall or wide hallway. It has impressive proportions and a large brick lined fireplace with stone surround and hearth. There are ‘coupled' style sash windows overlooking the rear garden. It is carpeted and has wall lights and storage heater. Opposite the wide hallway is the second bedroom, at the front of the property next door to the sitting room. This room is carpeted, has a central fireplace and sash windows. The third bedroom is at the back of the property, off the inner hall and adjacent to the main bedroom. Although the smallest of the bedrooms it too has good proportions with the additional benefit of having access to a shower cubicle, fitted storage cupboards and again enjoys a lovely view across the rear garden.
Next door to the third bedroom is a cloakroom/WC with part tiled wall, WC, pedestal basin, quarry tile flooring and a traditional style towel radiator.
The utility room has a large ledge and brace door with a step down to victorian checker board tiled flooring. There are several fitted shelves, plumbing and electrics for a washing machine and a sash window. An ideal space to store boots and coats etc.
Stone steps; at the end of the main hallway; ascend to the garden hallway which has large sandstone hopscotch flags, a pleasing echo and creates a buffer between the main Manor House and The Morgans. At the end there is an elegant sash window and a door leading onto the rear garden.
There is large garden at the rear with an array of very impressive trees one would expect at a country house. There is a large gravelled area immediately off the back of the house that narrows to a path leading to the back of the garden. This gravelled area is planted with assorted shrubs, herbs and perennials. The path leads you past a very impressive mature beech tree with large shaped yew trees beyond and opens out to a substantial area of lawn dotted with smaller specimen trees, roses and shrubs. A mature hornbeam hedge separates the garden from the neighbouring property. There is also a timber storage shed neatly tucked away.
