Coming to the market for only the second time in 60 years, Hill House is an extraordinary property and offers a historic and characterful, working Family Home. It has been extended and renovated into a home to satisfy any family intent on experiencing a rich slice of the Good Life. It would support multigenerational living with the separate Annexe in the garden or offers an Airbnb income. While the land provides undeniable opportunities for a working Smallholding with south-facing, directly-connected fields and paddocks laid out before and to the side of the house, all anchored by an Equestrian Barn providing 6 Loose Boxes alongside assorted Stores and Shelters, ideal for running a Livery business and for your own pony-mad youngsters. [The furthest field bordering the woodlands of Dinmore Manor Estate was home to a woodman’s cottage and with direct lane access may present a lucrative opportunity for a building plot; subject to all relevant planning permissions.]

From its elevated position, the property revels in truly breathtaking 180 degree uninterrupted views of open country sweeping away as far as the Skirrid some 30 miles to the south. Skirting the Driveway, a little-used public footpath leads up into the bordering woodland; ideal for dog walking and enjoying local wildlife including deer, red kites, buzzards, owls, woodpeckers and more. The nearby village of Wellington offers a thriving and welcoming community providing shop, post office, Ofsted “Good” primary school, garden centre with restaurant, football and even social clubs. While the full City amenities of Hereford are 6 miles away and all but equidistant lies the market town of Leominster.
