Notes and Comments:

Situation and Description - The small hamlet of Nunnington lies in northeast Herefordshire, some 4 miles from the city centre. Local services are available at Withington and Sutton St Nicholas with more extensive facilities at Hereford itself which offers a large array of shops, schools, restaurants, a main line train station and much more.

The Grey House is a very attractive and spacious family house which has been a much-loved home for many years. Now ready for the next owner to put their own stamp on it, this Grade II Listed house probably has Georgian origins and is based on a typical four-square room design. Constructed of grey stone it occupies an excellent plot with plenty of outdoor space which at one time included a grass tennis court. The house has five good bedrooms and offers huge scope for extension and further improvement, if required. A barn, that currently provides storage and garaging, could offer ancillary accommodation or office space subject to planning.

On arrival, a front door leads into a large reception hall with doors to the main sitting room which offers plenty of space with a high ceiling and a dual aspect with shuttered glazed doors to the front and windows to the side and a fireplace with fitted gas fire.

A separate dining room is ideal for entertaining and again has shuttered doors to the front and direct access to the kitchen/breakfast room. This is well fitted with a range of units and fitted appliances and includes an excellent walk-in pantry, a door to outside and door through to a rear hall and snug which creates a quiet place away from the rest of the house and includes a brick fireplace and a window to side. The ground floor is supported by a large utility/ laundry room and a separate cloakroom.

On the first floor, a master bedroom enjoys a dual aspect and has an extensive range of fitted wardrobes to one wall as well as an en suite shower room. There are two further double bedrooms supported by a family bathroom and separate shower room. A staircase continues to the second floor where there are two large double bedrooms ideal for guests or teenagers with plenty of storage.

Outside - The house is approached by its own private driveway which sweeps round to the side and rear where there is ample parking and turning space. From here access can be gained to a detached barn which currently provides garage and storage space with electric doors (measuring 16’ x 14’ and 22’ x 10’ respectively). The main ground floor of the barn measures 32’ x 13’ 4 with a first floor over. The whole building offers huge potential for a variety of uses, subject to any necessary approvals.

To the rear of the main house a small courtyard gives access to a range of small outbuildings as well as the oil tank. The gardens form a particular feature with the whole plot extending to approximately 0.8 of an acre. There are formal lawned areas to the front side and rear and extensive borders with mature trees and gravelled pathways. An original garden wall creates a charming feature and provides considerable privacy in parts, and at the rear a private swimming pool has been enjoyed for many years although it now requires some refurbishment and maintenance. The gardens are supported by a greenhouse and various garden stores.
