4 Bedroom Farmhouse with circa 66 acres for sale in Walterstone, Herefordshire

4 4 3

Grove Farm is situated at the end of a long private drive to where, beneath the Iron Age hillfort, it has stunning views out to the south and west. It is one of those rare gems in that it is situated in the midst of its own land. The house dates back to around 1830 and was a gentleman’s farmhouse as proven by the existing servants’ bells. Built of traditional Herefordshire stone, it has nicely proportioned rooms though one imagines some modernisation could be beneficial. The kitchen and breakfast room are the heart of the house with a useful utility/boot room and shower room to the rear. There are good sitting room and drawing rooms, the latter with an attractive tiled fireplace and picture rails. The dining room leads to a pleasant, south-facing terrace with wooden-framed porch. To the first floor are four well-proportioned bedrooms, and two bathrooms, one being ensuite with a dressing room.

From Abergavenny take the A465 Hereford Road north for 5 miles to Pandy. Turn left by the Old Pandy Inn and then after about 500 yards turn right with a sign marked Carpenters Arms. After 1½ miles, in Walterstone, turn right before the church and Carpenters Arms and after 200 yards, just after the bridge, the drive is immediately on the left.

Situation

Grove Farm is perfectly situated amidst stunning countryside in a quiet and private position yet still highly accessible. Sitting in the lea of the Black Mountains, Grove Farm is a short drive from Abergavenny with its schools, hospital and excellent shopping including a Waitrose and Morrisons. Hereford is 16 miles to the north-east, whilst closer by there are further shops and other services in Longtown and Ewyas Harold/Pontrilas. Of particular note is The Carpenters Arms just beyond the end of the long drive. This area is much sought-after for its beautiful countryside and host of recreational opportunities. The Black Mountains including The Cat’s Back and Llanthony Abbey are across the valley and the Brecon Beacons are a little further to the west. The famous Offa’s Dyke runs nearby. Communications have improved access without infringing on the area’s natural beauty. The A40 from Abergavenny links up with the M50/M5 in the north and the M4 in the south. Abergavenny has a railway station with fast links to Newport and the Intercity network.

Gardens

The gardens are to the south of the house and have huge potential. Lawns are dotted with mature shrubs and a variety of fruit trees. On the entrance front and flanking the drive is a more formal area with topiarised hedges, raised brick beds and a small pond. Beneath is a large pond which is glorious for wildlife and could be converted into something very special such as a natural swimming pool.

Outbuildings

There are a combination of period stone buildings and more recent agricultural barns. The principal stone barn has in the past been used as a gallery with workshop beneath and is obviously ready for a multitude of other uses, subject to planning. There are additional part stone barn and various sheds used for hay and livestock. Further from the house is a more recent agricultural barn with similar usage.

Services

Mains electricity. Mains and private water. Private drainage. LPG gas for hob and a fireplace. Oil-fired central heating.

Grounds and Pastureland

The grounds are stunningly beautiful and dotted with numerous mature trees including some glorious Oak. The land is divided into eight principal fields and slopes gently down towards the stream. With the farm being centrally positioned, access to all the fields is good and served by the drive or tracks. There is water in an abundance.

Tenure

Freehold.

Wayleaves, Easements and Rights of Way

The property is sold subject to and with the benefit of all rights, including rights of way, easements and proposed wayleaves. A footpath goes up the drive to the hillfort with a branch off to the north. It is well away from the house and apparently not a well-used route.

Fixtures and Fittings

Unless specifically described in these particulars, all fixtures and fittings are excluded from the sale though may be available by separate negotiation.
