Notes and Comments:

Whitney on Wye lies in the heart of the very beautifully Wye Valley and comprises a number of individual cottages, houses and farms, many of which originally belonged to the Whitney Court Estate. There is a pretty village church, an excellent farm shop (adjacent to Wardour House), The Boat Inn public house and a garage and village stores. There is also an active community with a local village hall. Further facilities are available at the popular market town of Hay on Wye, which also provides a gateway to the Brecon Beacons National Park and hosts the annual literary festival.

Wardour House itself is a very elegant Grade II Listed period house, constructed of stone with accommodation over three floors. It retains many original features such as shuttered windows, exposed timbering, fireplaces, a very attractive oak staircase and much more. It currently benefits from oil fired central heating and well fitted kitchen/breakfast room that includes a four-oven oil fired Aga.

On arrival a front door with canopy porch over, leads into a comfortable reception hall with period oak staircase. There is a lovely drawing room and second sitting room, both with plenty of character. The dining room also overlooks the front gardens and is ideal for entertaining with doors leading to a very spacious and well-planned kitchen/breakfast room. This is split level with a tiled floor, windows overlooking the rear gardens, stone and brick fireplace, range of cupboards, integral fridge and freezer and much more. The principal rooms are supported by a large utility/laundry room which houses the Grant oil fired central heating boiler. In addition, there is a rear hall, cloakroom and large boot room and a side entrance porch.

On the first floor there are three double bedrooms, all supported by a family bathroom. Two of the bedrooms have fitted wardrobes. A staircase rises to the second floor where there are two further double bedrooms and a bathroom.

Wardour House stands in large gardens and grounds which lie to the front and rear of the property with a large patio to the rear, a former summer house which needs some tlc. The gardens are well enclosed by wooden fencing. The property is approached from a small lane, by its own driveway which provides parking for several cars and a covered storage area which houses the oil tank.
