Situation and Description

Glanwye occupies a highly sought-after location on the south eastern side of Hereford, in the heart of the beautiful Wye Valley. Lying on the edge of Hampton Bishop, it is well located to benefit from local facilities with a pretty village church and the ever-popular Bunch of Carrots public house a short walk away. There is a primary school at Mordiford, and an extensive array of services at Hereford, which includes a main line train station, a shopping centre an excellent choice of schools and much more. There are some lovely walks along the river nearby.

The house itself offers very comfortable living accommodation throughout, which is very adaptable with bedrooms on both the ground and first floors. The whole property is deceptively spacious with gardens and grounds opening up behind the house, including some lovely-landscaped areas, with a natural swimming pond, section of mixed woodland and a paddock ideal for a pony. In addition, there is extensive parking and a number of useful outbuildings with excellent garaging and a playroom and store which would make a very good home office.

From the road, electric gates open onto a driveway which sweeps round to a large parking and turning area in front of the house. There is a welcoming reception hall and an impressive sitting room with vaulted ceiling large inglenook fireplace with fitted Efel fire and double doors that lead through to a good-sized dining room, which is ideal for entertaining. At the front of the house a conservatory creates a quiet place to relax, and a separate snug or tv room is ideal for teenagers or parents.

The kitchen/breakfast room is well appointed throughout with plenty of cupboard space and includes a Rangemaster cooker, built in dishwasher and much more. The kitchen is supported by a utility room, a front porch, cloakroom and small study overlooking the gardens.

A separate single storey barn provides storage and workshop space with a games room at one end. The building measures 43 x 14 5 and could offer potential for a variety of uses including home office or annex, subject to suitability.

The gardens and grounds form a particular feature of Glanwye, with landscaped areas sweeping away from the house. There are large lawns with a pathway leading to a sun terrace, an octagonal summerhouse, and natural swimming pond which creates a focal point within the gardens.
