The wealth and elegant proportions of the period character throughout enhance the wonderfully malleable modern family living spaces; from open plan Family Room to flexibly combined Study and Sitting Room.  With love and utter respect for the character of the 1870’s property an immense 10 month renovation has been undertaken; addressing everything from the roof to new pipework and plumbing. The house has been rewired, replastered, with stained glass and floor tiling restored, and the installation of new period-style efficient radiators and the replacement of all windows with original style wood frame, cord-weighted sash double glazing. While the extensive Cellar rooms offer exciting conversion potential for Gym, Home Office, Studio, Craft/Workroom, Cinema or Games Room.
Enjoying an excellent location within the most desirable of the city's tree-lined Conservation areas, the house is convenient to both the County and Nuffield Hospitals, railway station and the Hereford Sixth Form and Colleges. It is only a mile to the very centre of the city and the independent Cathedral School or a short stroll to local shop and pub. It also benefits from the many amenities of neighbouring Tupsley offering Ofsted “Outstanding” and “Good” primary schools, GP surgery and pharmacy, butcher and post office. For leisure, the Courtyard gate opens to a traffic free lane leading up towards the Quarry with its large children's playground, Scout HQ, dog park and open parkland home to numerous football leagues.
The Property
Rain Porch - Beyond the secure fence leading from the Driveway, the wide cobble set pathway leads to stone steps rising to the arch-topped Rain Porch with beadboard panel coat hooks ideal for the divestment of dripping outerwear. The Porch shelters the original Front Door with its restored stained glass panels and clear fanlights above and shares the original and highly decorative quarry tile flooring of the Entrance Hall beyond.
Entrance Hall - The Entrance pleasingly retains many Victorian features including dado rail and ceiling rose while to the far end fitted to the corner are original full-height double cupboards providing useful storage. The Hall is naturally lit by a high skylight above the upper landing, with light reflected by the smoke mirror feature wall on the original staircase.
Sitting Room - The inviting room with classic picture rail, architrave, deep wainscoting, ceiling rose and the rich hues of the wood flooring, is made welcoming by the feature fireplace with original black mantelpiece, home to a Chesney wood burner and offers perhaps a quiet and more formal adult retreat. By the fireside are fitted double cupboards with open display shelving above. The room delights in dual aspect with window and full bay both framing lovely views out over the gardens, with the new windows fitted with shutters. The malleability of the room is enhanced by the bifold wall opening to the Study and allowing for a more open sociable space to be created as and when desired. 
Study - Sharing the rich tones of the Sitting Room's wood flooring, the Study provides an ideal Home Office and benefits from an upright radiator beside the original corner fireplace with decorative tile hearth. The window, also fitted with a shutter, overlooks the Kitchen Garden. 
Family Room & Kitchen - The expansive open plan Family Room and Kitchen form the sumptuous heart of this home. With windows framing views over the main terraced garden, the Family Room offers an exceptional and convivial space for relaxing. To the wall is fitted the original dresser shelving with large double storage cupboards below relocated from the original Kitchen, while the Karndean-style, wood-effect, herringbone pattern flooring extends throughout much of the downstairs. Revelling in triple aspect and a half-glazed Stable door opening onto the terrace, the understated elegance of the Kitchen blends seamlessly within the space. The transition into the Kitchen is defined by the huge freestanding island, highlighted by 3 pendants, fitted with numerous drawers of varying depth to both sides and warmed by its wood countertop. The deVOL Kitchen of English handmade units with tulipwood frames and maple doors is topped by Silestone countertops. The array of units conceal integrated dishwasher set beside the double Belfast sinks beneath the window overlooking the private courtyard garden, tray-slot and concealed pull-out bin unit and wide highly energy-efficient twin fridge drawers. The also highly energy-efficient and all electric black Aga is framed by tile splashback. Fitted to the corner, the ceiling height wall cupboards offer storage and conceal space and sockets for a dedicated Breakfast cupboard. The Walk-in Pantry offers integrated freezer set beneath wood countertop with fitted shelving above. 
Dining Room - With steps down from the Kitchen, the Dining Room again offers a malleable space, ideal for the gathering of family and friends at a large dining table flanked by the bespoke banquette with seat storage. To one side French Doors open into the private Courtyard ideal for sheltered dining while to the other a glazed wall of bi-fold doors open onto the terrace of the main garden. Converted from the attached former stable, the Dining Room retains its original timber hay loft offering a private retreat for study or reading nook. The room offers a highly malleable space, with full-height cupboard home to the Worcester gas boiler, it would also provide an ideal playroom for younger children or teenage rumpus room. 
Utility/Boot Room - Fully fitted with bespoke units the Utility provides concealed Miele washer and dryer set beside the Villeroy and Boch sink underslung beneath the Belgian Blue Limestone countertop. The Boot Room benefits from copious storage with original double corner cupboard to match the Entrance Hall, built-in double cupboard and coat hanging above bespoke bench with seat storage while the hall passing the Downstairs WC ends at the half-glazed Stable Door opening into the Courtyard.

The Ensuite with Karndean-style wood-effect flooring provides a walk-in double shower with both positions featuring Rainhead and regular showers. The suite is completed with period-style high cistern WC, wall-mounted cupboard with mirror front above a basin vanity unit with cupboard storage.

The Ensuite features a large walk-in Rainhead shower with glass panel, WC, basin with vanity storage cupboard and chrome heated towel rail.

Bedroom 5 - The last of the bedrooms is a small carpeted Double, featuring a corner slant fireplace recess and benefitting from a window overlooking the Kitchen garden. 
Family Bathroom - The Bathroom features a claw foot slipper bath, WC and Burlington pedestal basin. The suite is completed with tall built-in storage cupboard, mirrored wall and the Karndean-style wood-effect flooring to match the Ensuites. On the landing lies the Airing Cupboard. 
Cellar - Benefiting from full head height and divided into several rooms the Cellar offers exciting potential to convert; subject to all relevant planning permissions. The extensive and malleable spaces offer potential for Home Gym, Cinema Room, Yoga Studio, Craft and Work Rooms. Even perhaps offering a business premises as the original steps for coal delivery could be reopened to provide a separate external access.
The wide gravel Driveway offers ample parking for numerous vehicles before sweeping to the new Double Garage Block with twin electric roller doors, power for Workshop and mezzanine storage. Beyond the secure high fence opens the beautiful landscaped gardens. The productive Kitchen Garden with gravel pathways and even chicken coop, is laid to 6 raised beds and borders bursting with herbs, soft fruit and a myriad of young fruit trees including apple, pear, plum, cherry, peach and crab. The private cobble set Courtyard with gate to the lane, is bounded by screening silver birch trees underplanted by photinia Red Robin and offers a delightful calm oasis for dining. The Main Garden has been levelled and terraced to provide differing areas for relaxing, accented by the considered planting of specimen Acers. The top paviour brick Entertaining Terrace offers a sunny spot for al fresco dining with seamless access to Dining Room and Kitchen. Twin artificial lawns bordered by classic box balls and flowers offer play areas with even a ground level trampoline, while stone paved paths lead down to the lower level with expansive deck seating area and corner pergola shaded by evergreen clematis, both privately screened with evergreen trees to the end and the stark white trunks of Himalayan birch trees to the long border.
