East Wilcroft is one wing of a substantial and impressive Grade II Listed Georgian house, which is believed to date from the 1820s. It lies on the outskirts of the ever-popular village of Bartestree which, together with its sister village of Lugwardine, offers an extensive range of facilities which include St Marys RC School, village hall, shop and newsagents, community centre, sports field, hairdressers, local pub and restaurant and regular bus service to and from Hereford. Bartestree is also well positioned to provide easy access via the A438 and A465 to both Worcester and Ledbury as well as the M50 motorway. Hereford itself offers an extensive range of facilities, centred around its historic cathedral.

This lovely house offers an all too rare opportunity to purchase a very comfortable period property, which has been updated and improved to offer excellent living accommodation throughout. It retains many of its original features such as high ceilings, original cornicing, some shuttered windows, fireplaces and an overall feeling of light and space. There is a wonderful kitchen/kitchen breakfast room, which has been added over the years, and forms the main hub of the house with a delightful outlook over the gardens.

From the small private lane, the property is approached by its own in-out driveway which sweeps up to an extensive parking area. From here a stone staircase leads up to the kitchen, whilst a separate path leads round to the front door which opens into a welcoming reception hall, and in turn leads into a light and spacious sitting room. There is a large separate dining room, ideal for entertaining and a superb kitchen/breakfast room with plenty of light and space which was added approximately 12 years ago. It is fitted with a range of oak cupboards, an electric double oven and five ring gas hob and has a high vaulted ceiling, limestone tiled floor with underfloor heating and forms a natural area for the family to gather. It also benefits from wonderful views over all of the gardens to farmland beyond. Two sets of double doors also open out onto a sun terrace, which is very private and again makes the most of the outlook. There is a separate good-sized utility room with built-in cupboards and Belfast sink. Also on the ground floor is a guest suite comprising a bedroom and en suite shower room with separate cloakroom.

From the main hallway a staircase leads up to a large first floor landing where there are two good sized double bedrooms, again overlooking the gardens. There is a further double bedroom and single bedroom, all supported by a family bathroom and a separate shower room.

From the driveway access can be gained to an excellent double garage with automatic doors and a workshop to one side. An external door provides access to excellent cellar space, which is divided into five rooms and provide further workshop and dry storage space. This area offers huge potential for a variety of uses, in our opinion.

The outside space at East Wilcroft has been well designed and landscaped for ease of maintenance. There are large formal lawn areas, broken up by beech and yew hedging. There is an attractive lavender walk, with a water feature at one end, and a variety of specimen trees and shrubs as well as herbaceous and floral borders. There are two raised vegetable beds and useful garden stores. All in all, East Wilcroft offers an excellent opportunity for the discerning buyer.
