Notes and Comments:

Situation and Description
Although part of an exclusive development, The Orangery is tucked away and set within its own substantial gardens which adjoin the River Wye. Litley Court is a highly sought after and established residential area on the southeastern side of Hereford. The city centre is only a short drive away and offers an extensive range of facilities including the historic cathedral, a choice of highly regarded schools and colleges, excellent restaurants, shops, and a mainline train station, together with some lovely riverside walks.

The Orangery itself is a handsome and well-designed property, further complimented by delightful gardens. The living accommodation is beautifully presented and adaptable with bedrooms on both the ground and first floors. The orangery, or garden room, is a later oak framed addition and creates a superb space to sit and relax with views looking down to the river. The formal gardens are well designed and are overlooked by a sun terrace and a large balcony that runs the length of the main house.

On arrival, electric gates open onto a private drive and turning area with a pathway leading round to a handsome porch and front door. A section of the approach drive, outside the entrance gates, forms part of the freehold of the property subject to rights of access enjoyed by no.7 Litley Court.

The reception hall is welcoming and spacious with travertine tiled floor and door to a light and spacious drawing room, comfortably appointed with wall lights, window blinds, a fireplace with coal effect gas fire, and three sets of double doors leading out to the sun terrace, creating a seamless connection with inside and out. A separate dining room is ideal for entertaining and adjoins a stunning kitchen, beautifully appointed with all the usual fittings as well as a Stoves 7 ring range style cooker with double oven below. A useful central workstation provides additional preparation space with matching granite working surfaces throughout. The orangery or garden room has added another dynamic to the house and has windows and doors on three sides, again providing easy access to the gardens. With views down and across the river. This well-planned space is a quiet area away from the main hub of the house and includes a wood burner for those colder evenings and fitted window blinds. The ground floor accommodation is supported by a cloakroom and utility space that includes an American style fridge, both accessed off the hall. There are two very comfortable ground floor double bedrooms with built in wardrobes, dual aspects, and one with direct access to the gardens. A good-sized bathroom then completes the ground floor accommodation.
On the first floor the main bedroom suite has been well designed and includes a luxury bathroom, fitted wardrobe and direct access to a large balcony that runs the length of the main house and enjoys a lovely outlook over the gardens. A separate guest suite includes wardrobe space and an en suite shower room.

Outside
The entrance drive provides access to the detached double garage 17’9 x 16’7, with automatic door to the front. The gardens form a particular feature of the property and extend to a fraction over three quarters of an acre. Pathways lead around the property with seating areas providing different outlooks. The gardens are well stocked with a variety of plants, shrubs and trees, creating areas of privacy. The more formal gardens lie to the rear of the house and are enclosed by yew hedging and brick walling with a central lawn and sun terrace overlooking a fountain with ornamental box hedging and topiary and a long pergola walk with mature Wisteria. The gardens drop down towards the river passing a summerhouse and decking as well as a maintenance area with garden stores and a woodshed. The remaining gardens are laid mainly to lawn interspersed with mature trees and adjoin the beautiful River Wye which is an ever-changing backdrop with an abundance of wildlife including swans, otters, kingfishers and much more. The owners have created a seating area, by the river, to make the most of the outlook, particularly in the summer months, with views across the river to farmland beyond.

Whilst the gardens and grounds at The Orangery are private the owners have the additional benefit of the communal gardens to Litley Court when required.

It is also worth noting that although the river rises in the winter months the house and main gardens are set well above the river. The owners also believe they have fishing rights on the river although they have never exercised these and we would advise anyone to check this point with their solicitor.
