About this property

  • The Valletts is a genuine Georgian farmhouse in a quiet, peaceful environment surrounded by nearly 30 acres of rolling countryside with outstanding far-reaching views across woods and fields to the Welsh mountains.

    The genuine Georgian house was built in 1786 but is not listed - it offers a wonderful potential to extend or remodel if desired. Subject to the necessary planning granted.

    Internally there are handsome fireplaces, high ceilings and hardwood floors. Timeless and elegant, the property would benefit form a program of modernisation and offers wonderful scope. Indeed, planning permission has been proposed (P212962/PA4) to transform the agricultural buildings into an additional dwelling.

    The accommodation is set over three floors with the added benefit of cellars on the lower ground floor that are ideal for storage. The ground floor is entered by way of a welcoming entrance hall with reception rooms to either side. Beyond which is a farmhouse kitchen, utility room,bathroom and a superb 28ft sitting room spanning the rear of the house.

    Surrounded by approximately 30 acres of rolling English countryside in the warm and sunny county of Herefordshire. Outbuildings include a steel frame barn, two detached barns and two sets of stable blocks including five large loose boxes. The estate would benefit from a program of modernisation and landscaping.

    The front garden consists of roses and lawns with seating under a huge lilac. Mature but productive pear, almond and peach trees line a gravel path leading to an old wrought iron gate.

    The back garden is a large lawn accessed from the sitting room. A seating area takes in panoramic views of summer sunsets or views across the valley to ancient woodland carpeted with bluebells in spring.

I love this hidden gem, the scope and potential is just incredible matched only by the wonderful grounds and woodland.
