Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 6
Lower Wormhill Farm is a delightful and substantial Grade II listed former farmhouse which is situated on a small private no-through lane. It is located equidistant between the popular village of Eaton Bishop and the well serviced village of Madley in south west Herefordshire and only 7 miles from the cathedral city of Hereford. Madley offers a thriving village with post office, shop, church, and public house. There is a good pre-school and primary school (Ofsted ‘Outstanding) and a well serviced bus route into Hereford. The Kingstone Academy is some 3 miles away.

The property has been lovingly cared for and offers versatile and well-appointed accommodation throughout. It is surrounded by charming gardens and adjoining paddocks, which extend to over three acres. Within the grounds there are some excellent original outbuildings which offer scope for further potential.

The main house offers an abundance of character both internally and externally with half timbering and fireplaces a common feature. The well-presented accommodation is laid out over two floors and as you enter the property, the two principal reception rooms enjoy fireplaces with wood burning stoves. The heart of the house is the large kitchen/breakfast room, which houses a four-oven oil fired Aga and a fitted kitchen with integrated appliances. Off this is a walk-in larder and an excellent utility room. On the first floor the master bedroom suite comprises a spacious bedroom with a good sized en suite bathroom and separate dressing area with built in wardrobes. There are two further double bedrooms and a single bedroom supported by a large family bathroom.

The Granary

Adjoining the house, and approached by its own access to the front, or via steps leading from the utility room, is a very useful self-contained converted Granary. This comprises a cloakroom, study area, large walk in storage cupboard and sitting room all of which enjoys underfloor heating under a newly laid Welsh stone floor. On the first floor there are two large double bedrooms and a bathroom.

It is approached via a large courtyard with a central cider press and plenty of parking with the farmhouse being the main focal point. To one side is a large traditional barn 60ft x 25ft with a concrete floor, full height opening doors and power. Adjoining this is a two-bay stable 23ft 9 x 14ft 8 with a small concrete yard to the front and gated access onto the country lane. On the opposite side of the courtyard is a range of traditional buildings, which have been divided into a car port 17ft 7 x 15ft 11; storeroom 16ft 3 x 8ft 3; workshop 16ft 3 x 11ft; further two-bay stable 16ft 4 x 8ft and 18ft x 16ft respectively. All have access to the paddocks at the rear. The gardens surround the property and have been beautifully landscaped. They are laid predominately to lawn but interspersed with mature and careful planting as well as a good-sized pond; all of which enjoy far reaching views across farmland to the Black Mountains at the rear. Within the gardens is a traditional brick barn, former piggery, with an adjoining woodstore 11ft 6 x 7ft 8 and a tool shed 11ft 2 x 7ft 6. On the opposite side of the pond are three paddocks, which can be approached via gated access from the country lane just before the main drive to the property. The paddocks are level and ideal for ponies or a variety of animals. There is an original manege in the closest paddock to the lane, which could be rejuvenated if required.
