Notes and Comments:
Situation and Description
The small rural hamlet of Norton Wood is formed from a cluster of individual properties and farms surrounded by open countryside. Set well away from main roads, and yet tucked away, Norton Wood is only a short drive away from a number of larger well serviced villages including Weobley, Eardisley, and Staunton on Wye. The market towns of Kington, Leominster and Hay on Wye are within easy reach with Hereford providing more extensive facilities including a main line train station to Paddington.
In our view, Brunswick House itself offers a rare opportunity to buy the complete package. Well located and offering considerable privacy, this very comfortable house has a range of excellent outbuildings and plenty of outside space which is just enough to be manageable. As a whole the property offers huge potential for a variety of uses. The house is light and spacious and very well appointed throughout, and benefits from electric under floor heating, engineered oak floors, oak joinery, and a well-designed kitchen and much more. The outbuildings enhance the property further and offer both annex and home office potential (subject to approval) or could house classic cars or continue to be used for equestrian, or for a host of other activities.
Initially the house is approached from a quiet country lane by its own private gated driveway. The electric gates lead onto the drive that sweeps up to a large parking and turning area in front of the house. A large porch and front door lead into a welcoming reception hall with engineered oak floor and door to a very impressive drawing or living room with masses of light and space. This lovely room includes a fitted wood burner, bi-fold doors to outside, built in speakers, a ceiling fan and a partly vaulted ceiling. There is a very comfortable dining room, with fitted display cabinets, ideal for entertaining, and a large a spacious kitchen/breakfast room which is well equipped with a range of appliances and is supported by a very useful utility.
An oak open tread staircase leads to the first floor where the spacious master bedroom, with a dual aspect that benefits from views over farmland, comes complete with fitted furniture, and an en suite shower room with double shower and twin sinks. There are two further double bedrooms, both with attractive views, whilst bedroom four has been converted into an office. The bedrooms are supported by a luxury bathroom with deep fill bath and all the other usual fittings.
Brunswick House is set in its own gardens and grounds that extend to approximately 2.75 acres and provide considerable privacy. Set well back from the lane and approached by its own private gated driveway, there is extensive parking and turning space for a number of vehicles. The main gardens lie to the rear and side of the house and include a very productive vegetable and soft fruit section, with both a supporting greenhouse and garden store.
A modern brick built former dairy is well equipped and would easily convert into a home office or annex (subject to planning). Whilst a separate timber stable block offers three loose boxes and a wood store. Both these buildings have solar panels which provide an excellent feed in tariff and have 15 years left to run on their current contract.
To one side of the house, a further purpose-built modern timber building incorporates a double garage with adjoining stable, feedstore and tractor shed.
The land is divided into a number of enclosures and is well fenced with post and rail and mature hedging with a natural pond, copse and small orchard. A separate drive to the side of the property also provides a very useful second point of access and in essence creates an ‘in-out’ drive.
Services and Considerations Mains water, private drainage, mains electricity and heating since 2011 . There is 4Kw of solar panels, which were installed ten years ago at the highest feed-in tariff rate, which will continue to run for a further fifteen years.
