Situation and Description
Breinton Common and Breinton are quietly situated some 3 miles west of the historic cathedral city of Hereford. The two villages lie approximately 1 mile apart and are serviced by a village church and hall and surround by the beautiful Wye Valley. There are wonderful walks right on the doorstep and an extensive range of shopping and leisure facilities in Hereford itself, which offers road and rail links to other parts of the country.
Ferry Bank itself is a very individual, architecturally designed house which has been carefully planned and offers beautifully appointed and practical living accommodation throughout. Much thought has been given to the use of light and space with impressive reception rooms and plenty of windows, particularly on the south western side. There are well stocked gardens to the rear, which make the most of the property’s aspect, and a very useful summerhouse, which could double as a home office. In addition, the property benefits from double glazing, oil fired central heating and all fitted carpets.
Initially the house is approached via its own drive and good-sized parking and turning area, with detached garage to one side. The front door leads into a reception hall with a limestone floor and handcrafted oak staircase to the first floor. There is a spacious study to the front, which provides a quite area to work, and a very comfortable and spacious sitting room, with windows overlooking the rear gardens to trees and countryside beyond. An attractive fireplace provides a focus in the room, with fitted wood burner for those cooler nights. Adjacent is the impressive kitchen/breakfast room, which is L shaped, with a limestone tiled floor throughout and an extensive range of fitted cupboards, built in lpg hop, double oven, built-in dishwasher, fridge and a good range of working surfaces. There is open access from the breakfast area into a wonderful sunroom, again full of light and space with a matching limestone floor, two rooflights and windows on three sides, making the most of the outlook over the gardens. The ground floor is supported by a good-sized utility room, which also houses the boiler, and a separate wc/shower room.
From the entrance hall a staircase rises to a first-floor landing with access off to the master bedroom, with double doors opening to a Juliet balcony offering lovely views. There is a double wardrobe and a well-appointed en suite shower room. There is an excellent guest suite, again with wardrobe and its own en suite bathroom, as well as two further bedrooms and a very functional family bathroom with fitted airing cupboard.
From the driveway access can be gained to a detached timber garage (17ft 5 x 12ft 9) with light, power, loft storage and a covered log store to one side. Pathways lead either side of the house to the rear gardens which are predominately laid to lawn with a picket fence at the end and lovely views. The aforementioned summer house (10ft x 8ft) is well positioned and has the benefit of being insulated and having power and light.
