A delightful residence retaining throughout the gracious period detailing of a bygone age to offer a home flooded with natural light from its stunning bay windows and huge glass lantern dominating the expansive landing. Its recent refurbishment including the installation of a 17 radiator gas central heating system, full rewiring and the creation of the stunning open plan Kitchen/Diner with bi-fold doors allowing seamless access into the secluded walled rear gardens beyond, has artfully combined the period fabric with the creation of a practical modern family home. To the rear of the house the Attached Stable with 6m Hay Loft above and adjacent Workroom/Office forms a block with obvious potential for conversion into an Annexe supporting multi-generational living or business pursuits; subject to all relevant planning permissions.
Enjoying an enviable location in the quiet Conservation Area of Hampton Park, its elevated position affords enchanting views across the River Wye to Dinedor Hill. Lying just over one mile from the very centre of the city, the house is eminently convenient for Hereford Cathedral School, both hospitals, the railway station and the wide array of amenities offered by neighbouring Tupsley; local stores, post office, butcher’s, GP surgery with pharmacy and 2 Ofsted Outstanding primary schools. While for leisure, riverside strolls and the playing fields of the Quarry with dog park, children’s playground and Scout H.Q. Hut are all nearby.
Entrance Hall – Wide stone steps lead up to the original Front Door before opening into a wide, carpeted Entrance Hall with dramatic arch detail supported by craved corbels. At the end of the Hall lies the Downstairs WC with ample hanging space for outerwear while opposite a door leads down into the substantial Cellars.
Drawing Room – The elegant Drawing Room boasts the wide sweep of a lovely bay window with twin arch-topped original sash windows to the side and full height central faux doors overlooking the mature front gardens. The spacious room features both an open working fireplace and new period-style radiator. The period detailing is evident throughout with picture rail drawing the eye up to the intricately decorative coving of twining grapevines.
Dining Room – In mirrored proportions to the Drawing Room, the formal Dining Room also enjoys the flood of natural light from the bay window and offers a convivial space for the gathering of friends and family. It also usefully retains a service hatch to the Kitchen.
Library – The carpeted Library boasts floor to ceiling fitted bookcases with twin lower double cupboards to one section. The room is made cosy with an open working fireplace with period-style decorative side tile panels and wooden mantelpiece while the new radiator sits beneath the wood framed double-glazed window. The Library provides a malleable space ideal as a Home Office with ample storage or perhaps as a Snug for more informal family relaxing or teenage retreat.
Kitchen/Dining Room – Set beneath the stunning glass lantern of the extension the Dining area basks in bi-fold doors opening out onto the paved courtyard and private walled rear gardens beyond. The welcoming space offers ample room for Family Room sofas alongside informal dining. The External Door to the side opens onto a secret paved patio looking across the front gardens - a quiet suntrap and ideal spot for contemplative morning coffee. The Kitchen itself is fully fitted with a myriad of units offering an array of storage including integral corner carousels and pull out pantry cupboard with wire racking. The sweeping space is anchored by an expansive central island with long Breakfast Bar to one side, deep pan and top utensil drawers to the other. It features induction hob set within the Corian countertop with stainless steel hood above. Opposite are integrated double ovens surrounded by storage while the cupboard above holds sockets for a concealed space for a microwave. Set within the original chimney breast is the Ironheart range with glass-fronted door to the gas fire that may be lit independently of the cooking oven, plate warmer and top twin hob. The sink dedicated to vegetable preparation features not only a mixer tap with hose extension but side tap offering both on-demand boiling and filtered drinking water. Across from the island, discretely screened from view lies the workhorse of the Kitchen with a stainless steel sink and a half with integral drainer, space for 2 dishwashers, storage units and integrated double recycling bin.
Laundry – The tiled Utility offers sink with integral drainer, alongside ample space for 2 washing machines, dryer and even chest freezer while the External Door leads out to the courtyard.
Boot Room – Beyond the Kitchen lies a Boot Room with External Door to the Driveway and offers ample space for the divestment of coats and boots.
Workroom/Home Office – Opening off the Boot Room lies a malleable space currently used as a Workroom with ample storage yet offering the potential for a convenient Home Office for any business with visiting clients. Adjacent to the Stable Block, the room could also be readily subsumed into any conversion.
Bedroom One – The Principle Suite offers initially a Dressing Room with twin walls of fitted mirror-door wardrobes before opening into the main Double Bedroom with double-glazed bay window framing lovely views sweeping out across the Wye to open country. The Ensuite features a large shower enclosure, underfloor heating and fitted wall of storage incorporating WC and basin.
Bedroom Two – The spacious, carpeted Double Bedroom also delights in the sweep of a double-glazed bay window. The room retains a second door that allowed direct access to its original Dressing Room; now the carpeted Double Bedroom Five and offers the possible use of the room as a private living and working space with adjacent bedroom for multi-generational use.
Bedroom Three – The spacious carpeted Double Bedroom retains its original fireplace with white painted mantelpiece with to one side a fitted wardrobe.
Bedroom Four – The Double Bedroom has stripped original wood flooring and also retains its original fireplace with mantel and floor to ceiling, fitted cupboards.
Family Bathroom – Off the lower Landing with its Separate WC and past the Airing Cupboard with small radiator and shelving lies the refurbished Bathroom. The fully-tiled Bathroom with underfloor heating features a double-ended claw foot slipper bath with centre taps and shower attachment and large Walk-in shower with both regular and Rainhead showers. The room is completed with WC and pedestal basin.
Bedroom Six – Carpeted stairs climb up to the last of the Double Bedrooms with windows overlooking the rear gardens. The room offers again a malleable space for work or play, with loft hatch access to the partially boarded roof space, home to the new gas boiler and access out around the Landing’s glass lantern.
The house is fully encircled by mature walled gardens featuring expansive lawns bordered by herbaceous borders full of specimen trees and shrubs while the long, wide Driveway provides ample parking for numerous vehicles. Forming one side of the rear courtyard the Detached Conservatory leads either onto the front secluded patio or into the private enclosed rear garden with its vegetable plot, island beds and greenhouse. The Attached Stable Block with Hay Loft above is ripe for conversion, with already existing provision of drainage and plumbing.
