Herefordshire country house for sale for £1.45m on Zoopla
A BIG seven-bed country house in Herefordshire with almost six acres of land and two holiday apartments is for sale for £1.45million.
Sunderlands agents described it as a ‘splendid historic period house’ in the village of Hardwicke, near Hay-on-Wye, on the border with Powys.
“The Haven is a splendid country house with an interesting history, set in delightful gardens, grounds and enclosures covering approximately 5.6 acres,” agents told Zoopla.
“On the plot there are two holiday apartments offering a very useful income.
“Overall the main house offers beautifully presented, large and versatile accommodation with seven double bedrooms, five of which are en-suite, and a wonderful lounge overlooking the garden.”
On entering the house through the front door there is a period tiled floor and a door immediately to the left which leads into a reception room, currently used as a games room.
“It’s a lovely, light and airy room with an open fireplace,” the officers said.
A central corridor gives access to the reception rooms on the ground floor, an en-suite bedroom and a porch, where there are toilets and access to the cellars.
The dining room has a south-facing window, a fireplace and a door that connects to the kitchen.
The kitchen itself has an extensive range of base and wall units with a granite work surface, Rayburn, dishwasher and sink. There is also a scullery with two electric ovens, fridge, sink and worktops.
Next to the scullery there is another side hallway with a door to the outside and a cozy reception room.
A staircase in the central hallway leads to the first floor landing which provides access to six bedrooms, four of which are en-suite, and a family bathroom.
“The master bedroom has its own independent suite with lovely views from the windows, a walk-in wardrobe with ample hanging space and a door leading to the bathroom where there is a bath, separate shower cubicle and inset sink with drawer and storage cupboard,” the officers said.
Away from the main house are the “Stargazers Apartments” which are used as vacation rentals.
A driveway leads from the main road through the front garden into ample parking and a turning area with separate parking for the holiday apartments.
There is also a garage, with laundry area, and another outbuilding.
To the rear of the main house there is a large terrace and an old pumping station which is now used as a leisure area with a small kitchenette, separate shower room.
‘One of the many delightful features of this property is the gardens which are large and beautifully landscaped with a wide range of floral and herbaceous borders and extensive level lawns,’ the Sunderlands agents added.
“On the grounds there is also a generous vegetable patch as well as a wide range of fruit trees. Of note are the remains of the original walled garden which once served this enchanting property.
“At the end of the garden there is also a wooden summer house with a wonderful view of the main house.
“To the northeast of the property there are paddocks which extend to approximately 4.15 acres.”
