Notes and Comments:
Situation and Description
This interesting property forms part of the very popular village of Bartestree, which together with its sister village of Lugwardine, provide a range of local facilities which include both primary and secondary schools, a village shop, public houses, a church, community centre, and much more. The cathedral city of Hereford is a short drive away and offers an extensive range of services together with a mainline train station.
Trewedna was originally built in 1962, and has evolved over the years, with additional single storey extensions which provide very versatile and adaptable living space. Most of the rooms enjoy a spectacular outlook with extensive and far-reaching views over Hereford city in the distance to the Black Mountains beyond. Although improved over the years the house now offers considerable potential to be upgraded and modified to create a unique family home in a highly desirable setting. The gardens and land extend to approximately 1.8 acres and include a former grass tennis court and a paddock, ideal for a variety of uses.
A small privately owned lane leads to a parking and turning area to the front of the house, and to the front door, which in turn leads into an enclosed porch and entrance hall. From here access can be gained to a very spacious sitting room, or lounge which makes the most of the wonderful views with plenty of windows along two elevations.
Patio doors provide direct access to the gardens and at one end an open fireplace creates a focal point. A separate snug also makes the most of the views and provides access to both the kitchen and a separate dining room. Although dated the kitchen is very practical with plenty of cupboard space and there is a separate large pantry.
At the other end of the house a good-sized study provides a quiet space to work and has patio doors giving access to the side garden. Also on this floor are two ground floor bedrooms supported by a large shower room as well as a separate cloakroom.
An open tread staircase from the reception hall leads up to the first-floor landing where there are four more bedrooms of varying sizes, all with built in wardrobes. The two larger bedrooms have beautiful views from picture windows, and one has the added advantage of a balcony. The bedrooms are supported by a family bathroom, with all the usual fittings and a built-in airing cupboard.
The property is approached by a long private driveway, which we understand is owned by Trewedna, and allows a right of way for three other properties. At the end the lane it is completely private and leads into a good-sized parking and turning area and to a detached garage 22’x 18 ‘maximum with remote controlled up and over door. A separate attached purpose-built workshop offers huge scope for a variety of other uses, including a home office, gym or games room and has doors to the front, plenty of power points, double glazed windows and electric heating. An external boiler room houses the Johnson and Stanley Economaire 65 gas fired boiler which runs the domestic hot water and a warm air ducted central heating system.
The gardens and land are a particular feature of the property and extend to approximately 1.8 acres. There are sun terraces and patios which make the most of the views, herbaceous borders and lawns including a former grass tennis court. An excellent garden store 11’5 x 7’ provides storage space and the remaining land includes a small orchard and a paddock which offers scope for a variety of uses. Ride on tractor and trailer shed.
