Situation and Description
Occupying a very convenient location on the edge of this popular market town, and enjoying views towards Bradnor Hill, Montfort House lies only a few minutes walk from an excellent choice of facilities including schools, shops, the town church, public houses, a leisure club, cafes and much more. The area is also renowned for its outstanding natural beauty, lying on the Welsh Marches and Offas Dyke Path, which provides access to some outstanding walks. Nearby Bradnor Hill is the home to one of the highest golf courses in England and enjoys some spectacular views over the surrounding countryside. More extensive facilities can be found at the Cathedral city of Hereford (20 miles), Leominster (13 miles) and the ever-popular town of Hay on Wye, with its world-famous literary festival (12 miles).

This very handsome town house offers comfortable family accommodation throughout and has been sympathetically restored and improved by the current owners, who have been careful to retain its original features. The house is Grade II listed and full of light and space, with adaptable accommodation laid out over three floors and includes all mains services, comfortable bathrooms, home office space and much more.

Approached by its own drive to a parking area and garage, a pathway leads to a front porch and a reception hall with decorative arch and fielded panel doors to a living/ dining room with stripped pine floor, shuttered sash windows, window seat, plenty of light and space and a period fireplace.

A separate sitting room also has plenty of period features with a fireplace and fitted wood burner for those colder evenings. An inner hallway provides access to both the lower ground floor and first floor as well as to a good-sized kitchen/ breakfast room which forms the main hub of the house. With a range of fitted units, dishwasher, Rangemaster cooker, quartz worksurfaces and a wonderful walk-in pantry with original meat safe, this room is again full of light and space and offers direct access to the gardens and is supported by a very functional utility room. From the inner hall, a staircase leads down to the lower ground floor, which has been converted to provide a wonderful games or playroom, with separate shower room with underfloor heating, storage space and a very useful home office with direct access to the gardens.

On the first floor, a light and bright landing has fielded panel doors that lead to the master bedroom suite with shuttered sash windows, painted wooden floor, ceiling cornicing and sliding doors to an en suite bathroom with deep, freestanding bath overlooking uninterrupted views fill bath; all creating a very comfortable space within the house. Three further bedrooms and a family bathroom make up the remaining accommodation with many of the rooms enjoying fine views over the gardens to Bradnor Hill. There is a large boarded attic room, with window and potential for conversion.

From the road painted wrought iron gates lead to a parking area and stone detached garage 14’5 x 8’ approximately, with up and over door to the front. The gardens are well established and a further feature of this lovely house. They are well enclosed with an attractive sun terrace, formal lawned areas to the front and side, and well stocked herbaceous borders.
