The captivating property, built in the 1890s has been completely stripped back to its bare brick and with considered attention paid to reworking the floor plan, has created a superb modern family home with great open flow and adaptable living spaces throughout. Pleasing touches of its period history have been retained including the original fireplace and timber roof beams which are echoed in the selection of new decorative Hall tile flooring and use of heritage colours. The west facing enclosed rear garden exemplifies the unexpectedly private and quiet nature of this city home.
 
Quietly concealed at the end of a long private Driveway, the house boasts an excellent location with direct access to the A49; the main north/south county artery. Nearby Holmer roundabout also connects to routes for Worcester, Hay On Wye and Brecon. Within a short stroll are Ofsted “Outstanding” primary school, Hereford Leisure Centre with next door Skate Park, Golf and Racecourses, allotments, petrol station with Asda convenience store and numerous retail outlets. While a less than 10 mins cycle ride lies the city centre.     
 
The Property
 
Rain Porch - The triple arched red brick Porch with decorative blue and buff detailing and Indian sandstone paving offers an elegant yet practical entry and shelters the new Front Door.
 
Entrance Hall - In a charming nod to the highly decorative quarry tiles common to grand Victorian hallways, the Entrance Hall displays new statement tile flooring and features a 6 smoke glass bowl chandelier. The long Hall is flanked by modern black glass panel double doors to both the Sitting and Family Rooms. To the far end an opaque glazed External Door opens into the rear garden, while to either side lie the Downstairs WC with built-in wall cupboard home to the new Worcester Greenstar Ri gas boiler and the Cloakroom providing ample storage for the divestment of outerwear and home to the hot water cylinder. 
 
Sitting Room - The inviting Sitting Room delights in a bay window with the new pebble grey Upvc windows fitted throughout the house. The room painted in a rich heritage colour is made even more welcoming by the retention of the original brick fireplace, home to an eco Clearskies wood burner set atop a wide slate hearth with timber beam mantel above and the honey tones of the oak-effect laminate flooring. The period-style, new energy-efficient column radiator is flanked by twin glass ribbed bowl wall sconces. Further options for various lighting moods are offered by the recessed lighting and central pendant fitted with 6 glass bowl chandelier. 
 
Family Room - Across the Hall lies the Family Room, a carpeted and  highly adaptable space. It also features a column radiator and array of lighting options with recessed lighting and both dipple glass bowl wall sconces and 6 glass ball chandelier. Enjoying dual aspect fitted with double horizontal awning casement windows, the room offers an ideal Study/Home Office, quiet adult retreat or cosy Snug for family relaxation. 
 
Kitchen and Dining Room - The spacious open plan Kitchen and Dining Room offers an impressive heart to this home. The Kitchen is fully fitted in Shaker units smartly contrasted by white quartz countertops. The array of storage across base and wall units with even a plate rack, conceals integrated fridge and freezer, beside built-in electric oven with combination microwave oven above. Below one Kitchen window lies the Belfast sink fitted with boiling water mixer tap and set beside the integrated Hotpoint dishwasher. The second window framing views into the rear garden sits beside the ceramic hob with deep pan drawers below and Neff black hood above. The units continue along to form a peninsula with storage and breakfast bar seating, with useful double socket with USB charging slots and highlighted by triple light pendant. The Dining Room with twin wall sconces to match provides a convivial space framed by French Doors opening onto the stone paved patio and benefits from ample room for dresser and sideboard flanking a large dining table at which to gather family and friends. To the far end of the room the pitch of the roof, naturally lit with twin Velux supported by 4 spot track lighting, creates another malleable space. It would prove ideal as a Family Room area for informal relaxing on comfy sofas, equally useful as an open Home Office or Study area easy to monitor children's homework and online activity or a play area for youngsters.             
 
Utility - With unit, countertop and oak-effect flooring to match the Kitchen, the Utility provides under counter space for both washer and dryer. The underslung stainless steel sink benefits from a dedicated electric hot water heater and wall-mounted heated towel rail. 
 
Bedroom One - The Principal Bedroom is a carpeted Double enjoying dual aspect and framing views over the church and side. It benefits from the recessed lighting and oak veneer doors with black handles common to much of the upstairs. Steps lead down into the sleek Ensuite with large, non-slip matt, marble-veined porcelain tile flooring. It features a vanity unit basin with black fixtures and twin drawer storage and above a touch control, heated de-misting LED lit wall mirror. The suite is completed with WC and large sliding door shower enclosure with both regular and Rainhead showers. 
 
Bedroom Two - The second bedroom is a spacious and carpeted Double with fireplace recess. Above lies the roof storage with lighting, accessed through the loft hatch.
 
Bedroom Three - The carpeted Double Bedroom features a proud and deep triple aspect bay window with cityscape views framing the far spire and Cathedral tower. The bay offers a lovely spot for relaxed seating or an ideal location for the desk of an industrious teenage student.      
 
Bedroom Four - The deep pitch of the long roof picked out with its triple exposed timber beams creates a characterful fourth carpeted Double Bedroom. Lit by black track lighting and twin spots to the central beam, the room enjoys dual aspect with high window to the city and opposite low window overlooking the rear garden. It offers an ideal children's room with low play area or deep storage space for Home Office. 
 
Family Bathroom - The spacious Bathroom features double-ended full bath with wall-mounted black mixer tap and shower attachment. The wide basin topped vanity unit provides twin drawer storage with touch control, heated de-misting LED lit mirror above. The suite is completed with spacious walk-in shower enclosure with herringbone tiling, recessed alcove and glass screen panel and a large, black heated towel rail. The Bathroom with tile flooring to match the Ensuite, benefits from two exposed timber roof beams home to black track lighting arrays and also features a central ribbed glass bowl pendant.   
 
Outside 
 
From the main road the long private Driveway leads back beside the church and into the expansive and securely gated front of the house, offering exceptional space for parking numerous vehicles including work vans and even caravan/motorhome. The grounds benefit from PIR outdoor lighting, tap and double outside sockets. The two raised beds surrounding the mature screening boundary trees are made from bricks recycled from the house and used to top the existing walls. To the side of the house a high fence with gateway opens into the securely enclosed and private rear garden with gravel area for discreet household bin storage. The garden features a newly laid lawn and wide Indian sandstone paving creating both relaxed seating areas and patio for outdoor dining.
