Notes and Comments:

Situation and Description
This very attractive period property lies on the south westernern edge of the sought after and ever popular village of Burghill. Along with the sister village of Tillington there is a thriving community which includes a primary school, village church and community hall, an excellent golf course and restaurant, village shop and public house. More extensive facilities are then available at the cathedral city of Hereford which offers extensive facilities as well as road and rail links to other parts of the country.

Formerly Burghill Court this impressive 18th century house is now divided into two individual and substantial houses with Court End lying on the western side approached by its own private tree lined driveway. The main living accommodation is laid out over three floors with many rooms enjoying spectacular views over the landscape. Still retaining many period features the principle rooms are spacious with high ceilings, original fireplaces, ceiling cornicing and mouldings,
shuttered windows and fielded panel doors. A practical kitchen includes an Aga and all the bath and shower rooms have under floor heating. Ideal as a family house there is plenty of space as well as a converted cellar and large mature gardens.

On arrival glazed front doors lead into an impressive entrance hall with high ceiling and decorated acanthus leaf and floral cornicing, marble fireplace with fitted wood burner, stained wooden floor ornate decorative pelmit, shuttered windows overlooking the gardens and impressive fielded panel door to the dining room. With triple shuttered windows to the south and west, open marble fireplace and high ceiling the room is ideal for formal dining. The main living room also has shuttered windows to one side, an open marble fireplace, radiator and again a high 14’ ceiling. A door then leads into a very practical kitchen/ breakfast room which has tiled floor, deep fill sink, wooden and granite working surfaces, two oven Aga, triple sash windows, a range of fitted cupboards and drawers, plumbing for a dishwasher and door to large walk-in pantry with cold slab.

A separate study or home office has been cleverly designed and includes fitted bookshelves and a staircase to a first-floor open studio. The ground floor space is then supported by a laundry room with large stainless-steel sink, tiled floor, space for washing machine, direct access to outside and a separate cloakroom with WC and fitted cupboards.

From the main reception hall, a staircase leads down to a cellar which is divided into two large rooms, currently used as a cinema room and gym.

On the first floor there is a master suite with fine views and a well -appointed shower room and dressing area, and a second bedroom and family bathroom. A staircase then leads up to the second floor where there are three further bedrooms and a shower room.

Court End is approached by its own private tree lined drive which leads to a parking and turning area to the front and side of the house. The whole plot then extends to just over one acre and includes large level lawned areas interspersed with mature trees including a cedar of Lebanon, as well as various shrubs and herbaceous borders. In the main the gardens to the side and rear are very private and sun terraces to the side and rear offer an opportunity to sit and relax.
