Situation and Description - Wapley House is one of a small group of very individual country properties that lie in a wooded setting at the base of Wapley Hill. The ever popular and thriving market town of Presteigne lies only a short drive away and offers an excellent range of local services including schools, eateries, a leisure centre with pool and much more. The area is renowned for its rolling countryside with some outstanding walking and riding right on the doorstep. More extensive facilities are available at Knighton, Leominster and Ludlow, as well as at the Cathedral city of Hereford.

Starting life as a coach house, this versatile property was originally converted to create a private house in the 1960s. The accommodation is spacious throughout with the added advantage of a self-contained 1-bedroom annex, ideal for extended family use, or for creating an additional income. The gardens and grounds are a large feature and are extensive and would be ideal for a growing family, with plenty of different spaces to explore. Although unused by the current owners there is a hard tennis court for the sports enthusiast and areas of established woodland teeming with wildlife.

On arrival, a long private drive sweeps round to a turning circle at the front of the house, where the front door opens into an entrance porch with cloaks cupboard and separate cloakroom. The main entrance hall has a decorative central archway and windows overlooking the rear gardens. An attractive arched doorway leads into an impressive dual level drawing room/dining room which offers plenty of light and space, with a large picture window to the front and large patio doors leading to the rear gardens. The kitchen/ breakfast room is another impressive space and forms the main hub of this lovely house. Remodelled by the current owners, there are an excellent range of fitted units and appliances, with windows to the front and rear and plenty of space for the family to gather. The kitchen is supported by a well-equipped utility room with plenty of cupboard space.

On the first floor, the master bedroom suite has fitted wardrobes and enjoys a triple aspect with lovely views over the gardens to open countryside beyond. The en suite is also spacious and includes all the usual fittings and has the benefit of a bath and separate shower. There are three further individual double bedrooms supported by a family bathroom and separate shower room.

Adjoining the house at one end, and with its own independent access, the owners have again created a very spacious and comfortable one bedroom annex which would be ideal for an extended family or could provide a letting income if required.

Outside— A long wood lined drive leads to the house and passes a detached triple timber garage block on a concrete base with two enclosed bays, and then continues to the front of the house where a circular drive surrounds a central lawn. The gardens and grounds form a particular feature of Wapley House and extend to approximately 2.5 acres and ideal to explore. They include formal lawned areas, herbaceous borders, an array of individual trees, as well as an established woodland area. An extensive patio and sun terrace at the side of the house includes a former swimming pool that has been adapted to create a unique seating area and would make an excellent outdoor kitchen. There is a productive vegetable and soft fruit section and an enclosed hard tennis court which has been little used by the current owners but could easily be re-instated. Throughout the gardens there are numerous walks and pathways and a new outlook at every turn. Along one boundary run a line of lollipop beech trees which are also a feature of this very versatile property. A range of garden stores provide useful storage space.
