Situation and description
If you are looking for a view, then ‘Upper Field’ offers uninterrupted views for up to 35 miles on a clear day. Facing due south the views include the Brecon Beacons, Black Mountains, Mayhill and the Malverns, and are some of the best in the entire county. The property itself is one of a small cluster of individual houses and conversions that lie on a country lane in northwest Herefordshire. The nearby villages of Eardisley, Almeley and Lyonshall between them have a number of local facilities’ the market town of Kington lying just 3 miles away is a centre for walking and the arts. The cathedral city of Hereford is some 18 miles distant and the ever-popular market town of Hay on Wye, with its world-famous literary festival, is just 11 miles to the west.
Upper Field offers an opportunity to purchase a stylish and contemporary barn conversion built to Passivhaus standards. The living areas are light, spacious and versatile with a self-contained annex on the ground floor, if required. Large triple glazed windows make the most of the views and an air recovery system, 5kw air source heat pump, photo voltaic panels, an electric car charging point and excellent insulation all add to the properties eco credentials.
A good range of outbuildings add another dimension with a large workshop, triple garage, stables and a home office offering potential for a variety of uses. The gardens and land then extend to 3 ½ acres and have the backdrop of exceptional views. Ideal for a number of uses, they currently include a tractor shed and nature area, with a former railway cabin available by way of separate negotiation.
On arrival a large, recessed porch protected from the elements and front door leads into a reception hall and then into the main living space.

The kitchen has plenty of working space and is supported by a good sized pantry and the breakfast or dining area has direct access to the outside. The lounge has a dual aspect with window seats and views as far as the Brecon Beacons. Access can then be gained to two ground floor bedrooms which are both very spacious, with one having direct access from outside and its own shower room and kitchen area, giving it the option to be self- contained.
