Situation and Description

The thriving market town of Kington lies on the border of Herefordshire and has become very popular in recent years, particularly for walkers having easy access to Offas Dyke path and Hergest Croft Gardens and Arboretum being particular attractions. The town itself offers an excellent range of facilities, including a modern medical centre, a primary and secondary school, post office and regular bus service. Locals enjoy a variety of shops as well as a museum, art gallery, two leisure clubs, a recreation ground, football, cricket and bowling clubs, together with one of the highest golf courses in Europe which offers spectacular views on a clear day. London main line trains stations are at Leominster and Hereford direct to Paddington.

The Old House is a lovely period property full of character features and offering very comfortable and adaptable living accommodation throughout. It benefits from all mains services, secondary double glazing throughout, a well-appointed kitchen, fitted carpets, ground floor and first floor sitting rooms, a large south facing roof terrace and well stocked and generous gardens at the rear.

On arrival a front door opens into a welcoming and good-sized reception hall, with a stone fireplace and fitted wood burner, and plenty of exposed timbers. The sitting room has a superb large stone fireplace, again with a fitted wood burner for those colder evenings, and an adjoining study or office creating a quiet place to work away from the main hub of the house.

From the sitting room glazed doors lead through to the sunroom, which is a wonderful space to relax or entertain. There are windows overlooking the gardens, exposed timbers and stonework, as well as direct access from the reception hall and double doors to outside. An arched door leads through to a very well-appointed kitchen with a range of integrated appliances including fridge, dishwasher and Rangemaster cooker. There are plenty of fitted cupboards as well as two sinks and space and plumbing for a washing machine. The ground floor is supported by a dressing room with shower and wc; an integral garage/store with power and lighting and a further wc.

Two staircases provide access to the first floor, with one leading to a private master bedroom or guest suite. The bedroom is a good size with an extensive range of wardrobes to one wall, exposed timbering, leaded glass window to the front and an en suite shower area with windows overlooking the gardens.

A separate staircase leads up to a small landing and an open plan first floor sitting room with a vaulted ceiling, exposed timbers, oak flooring and glazed doors to a wonderful south facing roof terrace, with decking, ornate rails and views over the gardens. There are two further double bedrooms, each with their own character and charm. These are supported by a family bathroom and walk-in airing cupboard that houses the gas fired central heating boiler.

Outside

From Duke Street, hardwood garage doors on the left of the property gives access to a small garage/store which has its own internal WC and door into the house. The carport (to the right of the property from Duke Street) provides space for two cars and is again enclosed on one side by hardwood folding doors, making the house very secure and private from the street. Overall, there is sufficient private parking for three cars.

The gardens lie to the rear form a particular feature. They are generous in size and are enclosed by stone walling, affording a great deal of privacy. From the gravelled driveway a path and steps lead up to a sun terrace and lawned area with well stocked herbaceous borders on either side and a variety of shrubs and trees. At the far end are established cherry, pear and apple trees as well as soft fruits such as strawberries, blackcurrant, raspberries and gooseberries. There is further space for vegetables. All supported by several water butts, two outside taps, external lighting and a double weather-proof garden wall socket.
