Upper House: The current owners have created a wonderfully private small estate. Expense has not been spared in creation of this stylish set up and the result is an excellent property full of original charm and character but with contemporary finishes and modern attributes.
Sitting in the centre of the property, accessed by a private drive and large parking, Upper House itself sits in an elevated position overlooking the barns and formal gardens affording panoramic vistas of rolling countryside as far as the eye can see. The interior is awash with pastel tones and exposed original beam marries with natural stone and oak floors, bespoke oak joinery, and a plush stylish finish throughout. The heart of the home is the open plan kitchen breakfast room with bespoke kitchen units.
The excellent drawing room with mezzanine library has real wow factor with full height ceiling, lots of natural light, flagstone floor and large log burning stove. A hidden gem is accessed via stone steps down to a lower ground floor and bedroom four complete with en suite bathroom. A further three double bedrooms are also en suite and the continuation of style and well-thought design and finish is found as much here as in the reception and shared spaces through the house.
The Long Barn and The Hayloft: A beautifully renovated stone barn comprising two luxurious holiday cottages, or annexes to the main house, echoing the stylish and sophisticated finish of the main house. The cottages offer excellent accommodation of contemporary design whilst retaining charm and character. Both have benefit of log burners, well-appointed kitchens and bathrooms, bespoke oak joinery and natural stone floors. The Long Barn boasts two en suite bedrooms, a mezzanine sitting room and an open plan kitchen breakfast room. The Hayloft has kitchen/ breakfast room, sitting room and master bedroom served by separate bathroom. The barn is surrounded by landscaped gardens and gravelled seating areas.
Outbuildings: Adjacent to The Long Barn and Hayloft is a separate spa building comprising sauna, shower room and a relaxation room with large windows to sit and enjoy the spectacular views. The clean, crisp finish to decoration is of the same standard as the rest of the property and provides a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the position. Other outbuildings include a timber built summer house and various stone built stores.
Potential: Hendre and Holywell offer tremendous potential, the latter has separate access, the former could be an annexe to the main property. Necessary permissions need to be obtained but these original stone drovers barns could be fantastic additions to the estate, increasing the earning power of the estate through additional holiday lets. The existing business has improved year on year since inception.
Gardens, grounds and land: The current owners have created superb grounds to compliment the house. The formal gardens immediately surrounding the house offer terraced lawns with dry stone walls, box tree borders and plantings of bay. Pathways wind through wild grass meadows and coppices of sapling trees have been planted and nurtured by the current owners. The remaining acreage is made up of pasture land, woodland, brooks and green lanes with mature native broadleaf trees to the field boundaries. The land stretches to just over 70 acres with various access points from the green lanes, private lane and road. The property is registered for RPA payments. The vendors received a grant to plant 5.5 Hectares of broadleaf saplings. The land has been rented out on a yearly basis for grazing.
