Notes and Comments:

Situation and description
The charming and extremely popular village of Weobley lies in northwest Herefordshire and has been a much sought-after location for many. Featured on the black and white village trail, and with a historic core of half-timbered houses and cottages, the village now blends with a mixture of more modern and contemporary housing. With a thriving village community, it offers an excellent range of local amenities from restaurants and pubs to a village store, primary and secondary schools, doctors’ and dentists’ surgery, regular bus service, lovely village church and much more. More extensive facilities can be found at the Cathedral city of Hereford (11.5 miles) and at the nearby market towns of Leominster and Kington, both 9.5 miles away.

Highbury offers an outstanding opportunity to purchase a very individual and substantial detached house. Situated on the edge of this most favoured village the house commands some of the best views over Weobley. Constructed by the award-winning local firm Oakrights, the house is full of light and space and benefits from modern design features including a ground source heating system, solar panels and a high level of insulation which has resulted in a ‘B’ energy rating. The living space is well thought out and very adaptable with a large and well fitted kitchen/ breakfast room, open plan reception hall and dining area and a fabulous sitting room with glazed end gable and vaulted ceiling.

The bedrooms are arranged over two floors with a basement level providing utility space as well as a games room and shower room.

On arrival, steps lead up to a porch and front door and then into a large and welcoming reception hall, which opens into a dining area with double doors to the outside seat area, making the whole space ideal for entertaining. The sitting room is a stunning space with a high vaulted oak frame and a glazed gable end providing direct access to the gardens. The kitchen/ breakfast room has double aspect glazed doors and is undoubtedly the main hub of the house, offering plenty of naturally lit living space and views of both south and north facing gardens. There are ample working surfaces and fitted cupboards as well as a range of built-in appliances and a walk-in boot room. A large study doubles as a ground floor bedroom with views over the village, and doors to a small balcony or verandah. Complete with its own en suite shower room, this room is ideal as a guest suite.

The ground floor is supported by a cloakroom.

On the first floor, approached from the gallery landing, are three very comfortable double bedrooms plus a well-equipped family bathroom. The impressive master bedroom, which includes a dressing area and shower room has a vaulted ceiling and double doors to a private balcony and enjoys far reaching views across farmland.

From the reception hall a staircase leads down to the basement which provides excellent additional space with a games room, storeroom, laundry with direct access to outside, an indoor workshop/ storeroom, a shower room and finally a plant room housing the central heating and hot water systems.

The house is approached by its own drive to a large parking and turning area which in turn gives access to a garage with a studio above. On the other side of the drive lies an excellent detached workshop 22’ 10 x 19’ 2 with double sliding doors to front, concrete floor, power supply and solar panels.

The gardens complement this lovely house and extend to approximately a third of an acre. There are decked areas on either side of the house, particularly at the rear which makes the most of the properties outlook. There is a summer house, garden store and useful greenhouse. The gardens are laid to lawn with a variety of trees and shrubs and floral borders as well as an ornamental pond, vegetable, and soft fruit sections.
