Property Description

A Victorian 4 Double Bedroom Period Family Home, boasting stunning modern Kitchen/Family Room extension and off-road parking - truly a polished gem set in the most picturesque tree-lined Conservation Area at the heart of the City.

Rain Porch – Entrance Hall – Sitting Room – Dining Room – Library – Study/Music Room – Open Plan Kitchen/Family Room – Utility Room – Downstairs WC – Cellar Rooms – Principal Bedroom With Ensuite Shower & Box Room – Double Bedroom With Ensuite Shower – 2 Further Double Bedrooms – Family Bathroom – Gated Driveway – Walled Rear Garden With Courtyard – Summerhouse With Concealed Rear Shed – Log Store

Castleville offers an immaculate home retaining the period detailing and elegant proportions of its 1850’s Victorian heritage harmoniously married to a beautifully executed modern extension, providing a magnetic hub for family life. Bi-fold doors invite seamless transition into a paved courtyard ideal for sheltered dining within the wider delights of a walled garden with Summerhouse. The Cellar rooms provide, beyond Boiler Room with obvious storage and workshop utility, the exciting potential to convert; subject to all relevant planning permissions with the second room already fully tanked. While original character has been lovingly retained, the home has been thoughtfully updated, with several additions including underfloor heating, ethernet wall ports in nearly every room, music system with ceiling speakers and much more.

Enjoying a superb location, the property lies but a short stroll from the city’s full amenities and Hereford Cathedral School. While for leisure the tree-lined path opposite leads to the Castle Green or cross the Victoria Bridge to the Bishop’s Meadow playing fields, children’s playground and Swimming Pool.
The Property
Rain Porch & Entrance Hall – Stone steps lead up to the Rain Porch sheltering the original Front Door with delightful etched glass panels and fanlight above before opening onto the iconic and beautifully restored, original decorative floor tiles of the Entrance Hall.  
Sitting Room – The inviting and carpeted room features a wealth of period features with original marble mantelpiece with decorative hearth tiles, now home to a wood burner, alongside its 6 panel door, deep wainscoting, high picture rail below ceiling rose and moulding. While the beautiful bay window overlooking the front garden boasts new double-glazed and maintenance free sash windows, fitted with white shutters. 
Library – Offering a quiet sanctuary, the carpeted Library with recessed lighting provides walls of fitted bookcases offering ample storage and display space. It retains an original fireplace with black and red tile hearth and also delights in a bay window fitted with new double-glazed and maintenance free sash windows, fitted with white shutters, enjoying views across to the small park beside the Castle Pool.
Study/Music Room – Providing a highly malleable room with recessed lighting and ceiling speaker connected to the house’s Niko music system, the room would support any number of diverse pursuits from Sewing/Crafts/Hobbies, children’s Playroom to dedicated Home Office. The Music Room is fitted with an array of storage, with tall alcove fitted with display shelving, double cupboards flanking the chimney breast and wall-attached side board and full height double cupboard to the corner, both pieces relocated from the property’s original butler’s pantry. It also benefits from new double-glazed and maintenance free sash windows, fitted with white shutters
Dining Room – Glazed double doors lead from the new Kitchen into the Dining Room with its original Ventrolla renovated wide sash windows and restored black and red tile flooring. With ample space for a large dining table, the room features a fireplace recess with highly decorative tiles and has an original, full-height built-in double cupboard with middle drawers; discreet home to the property’s technology - Niko music system and broadband hub etc. 
Open Plan Kitchen/Family Room – The expansive extension with underfloor heating offers a modern and malleable sweep of more informal living space beside a well designed Kitchen. The Family Room is flooded with natural light from the enormous roof lantern, highlighted by soft uplighters, part of an array of mood lighting options. Indeed, no convenience has been neglected; from the electric curtain rail drawing across the bi-fold doors leading out into the paved courtyard, low profile floor sockets in the parquet wood flooring, ceiling speakers connected to music system, to the Leenders suspended wood fire that rotates to focus on a chosen position. The expanse would also allow ample space for family dining alongside informal relaxing if so desired. The Kitchen is fully fitted with a myriad of storage - predominantly deep pan drawers often with concealed inner drawers. The long peninsula with overlay, composite granite countertop provides breakfast bar and is home to the Stoves gas hob with remote-activated, low profile hood above.  The central island with marble countertop provides underslung Franke stainless steel sink with macerator and recess to conceal household bin. Beneath the Ventrolla renovated original twin windows overlooking the rear garden lies a double size Franke stainless steel sink with mixer and secondary dual tap providing both boiling and filtered cold water. To the side lies the integrated dishwasher while opposite the fitted wall of units surrounds space for a fridge/freezer, flanked by integrated microwave, Bosch double oven and steamer combi oven with twin tall pantry cupboards to either end.
Utility Room – Across the hallway, with External Doors to the side access with Bin Store or the rear garden, lies the Utility Room with original window. The laundry room has space for both washer and dryer alongside ceramic sink with wooden countertop and provides space for the storage of all manner of household necessities. The Downstairs WC lies next door.
Cellar – The Boiler room with original red brick floor is home to the Worcester gas boiler and large pressurised water tank and is currently utilised as a workshop with ample storage. The second room has been fully tanked although not yet plastered and offers excellent dry storage with exciting potential to convert. 
Bedroom 1 – The Principal Bedroom is a spacious, carpeted Double enjoying dual aspect with new double-glazed and maintenance free sash windows, fitted with white shutters, to the front and bay overlooking the rear garden both fitted with shutters. Beside the Bedroom lies the original Box Room offers useful additional storage or small Dressing Room. The modern tiled Ensuite with sensor lighting and ceiling speaker boasts twin basins with tower storage with remote controlled colour changing LED lit mirror above. The suite is completed with Duravit WC, large Shower enclosure with both regular and Rainhead showers and twin sculptural chrome heated towel rails flanking the window.  
Bedroom 2 – The carpeted Double Bedroom enjoys new double-glazed and maintenance free sash windows, overlooking the front garden with mature beech trees and park beyond. The black tiled Ensuite features wall-mounted basin, WC and large Shower cubicle completed with heated towel rail. 
Bedrooms 3 & 4 – Both carpeted Double Bedrooms retain original fireplaces and have a built-in wardrobe, and also new double-glazed and maintenance free sash windows.
Family Bathroom – The Lefroy Brooks period-style suite features full bath, Walk-in Shower enclosure with granite sheet walls, WC and pedestal basin. The Bathroom benefits from sensor lighting, original Ventrolla renovated wide sash windows, ceiling speakers and retains the original full-height Airing Cupboard with batten shelving. From the Landing with lovely curving bannister, the loft hatch accesses the large roof space.

The hedged Front Garden benefits from secure access to either side of the property, with the Gated Driveway providing parking for one car with cable ready for installation of an electric car charging point. The stone paved courtyard sheltered by terraces offers an ideal and private space for al fresco dining and relaxing. Twin sets of steps lead up to the lawn bounded by shrub borders and home to both apple and pear trees. To the side of the walled garden lies a shaded recess ideal for quiet retreat beneath the twining wisteria and climbing roses. The Summerhouse with power and discreetly concealed Shed behind, offers a splendid spot for evening drinks while lapping up the last of the sun’s rays.
