Situation and Description
Welshwood Farm occupies a lovely rural location and is one of a small cluster of properties which were once part of a working farm. Although tucked away, the village of Whitney on Wye is within easy reach and has a village pub, village hall, farm shop, church and petrol station and store. The larger village of Eardisley is also within a short drive, along with the ever-popular market town of Hay on Wye which hosts a world-famous annual literary festival and provides a gateway to the Black Mountains. The town of Kington and the Cathedral city of Hereford offer further facilities if required.
The views from the house are outstanding and its prominent position on the hillside, facing due south, makes it very much a ‘landmark’ property for the local area. Constructed of stone, the house has been lovingly restored and upgraded, whilst ensuring the character of the original farmhouse is retained. The main accommodation is laid out over three floors with many of the rooms enjoying outstanding views. There are useful outbuildings at the rear, two paddocks and beautiful gardens to the front and side which further enhance this unique property.
On arrival a front door leads into a reception hall with oak flooring and doors to a comfortable sitting room full of character with a large fireplace and wood burner for those colder days. A separate living room creates a separate space and at the rear of the house lies a traditional farmhouse kitchen with flagstone floor, exposed timbering, oak cupboards and kitchen units, fitted appliances, pantry cupboard and direct access to outside. An adjoining dining or family room provides additional space and again has a flagstone floor and houses the oil-fired central heating boiler. A dry cellar provides additional storage space and has plenty of fitted shelving.
From the hall an original oak and elm staircase leads up to the first-floor landing with windows at either end, fitted cupboards and doors to three double bedrooms, each with their own character and all supported by a large family bathroom. On the second floor there are two very spacious bedrooms with vaulted ceilings, paint washed walls, and roof lights and share a separate shower room.
The property is initially approached by a long driveway which leads to a large parking and turning area at the rear and side of the house. From here access can be gained to a modern timber garage and with two open bays 13’ 5 x 11’ 10 and 13’ x 7’ 8 and an enclosed garage/ stable with concrete floor 11’4 x 15’ 4.
To the rear of the house are a range of original buildings which provide workshop, storage and utility space and could have potential for conversion into ancillary accommodation, subject to approval.
The gardens form a particular feature and lie to the front and side of the house. Landscaped with great care and attention by the current owners, they are well stocked and form a beautiful and peaceful part of Welshwood Farm. There are various seating areas as well as serpentine yew hedging, a water feature, various pathways, a kitchen garden with raised beds, soft fruit and a very useful polytunnel 21’ x 12’ 2. A cleverly designed outdoor kitchen with barbecue, pizza oven, sink and bottle racks and much more is a natural place to gather, and all with the stunning backdrop of open views over miles of rolling countryside. The land is divided into a wildflower meadow and an orchard and in all extends to just over 4.5 acres.
