Situation

The thriving village of Bartestree is situated just 3½ miles east of the Cathedral City of Hereford and is affiliated with the neighbouring village of Lugwardine. The area is well known for its hop fields, arable land, orchards and livestock farming. Nestled within beautiful Herefordshire countryside surrounded by fields and woodland, this property is situated privately off the main road but well placed for easy access to the local market towns and regional cities.

East Hagley Court


This wonderful period property is thought to have its origins dating back to 1650, and provides spacious accommodation principally situated over 3 floors.
A large and welcoming dining/hall offers plenty of space, ideal for family gatherings and entertaining, and is centrally situated within this lovely home.
The beautiful drawing room is airy and light and features original floor to ceiling sash windows, a large feature fireplace with wood-burner, exposed floorboards and a side door out to the garden. There is also a spacious sitting room benefitting from floor to ceiling sash windows.
The fitted kitchen/breakfast room offers plenty of storage, but would benefit from some updating. A door from the kitchen leads out to an attractive patio terrace, perfect for seasonal dining.
The bedrooms are situated over 2 floors and are all very spacious and light. The voluminous principal bedroom has a double aspect, enjoying views over the garden and benefits from fitted wardrobes/storage and a balcony. The spacious bedroom on the second floor has potential to create a bedroom suite to incorporate a separate dressing room and en-suite (subject to the necessary consents).
There are two family bathrooms, also situated over 2 floors which would benefit from some updating.
The property retains many original features, including high ceilings, sash windows, cornicing and traditional interior wooden shutters, which give a charming insight into the past.

The Outside


East Hagley Court is approached via a long, gravelled private (but shared) drive which leads to ample parking to the front of the property.
The large and private established gardens are planted with a variety of flowering shrubs, specimen trees and flowering plants, and offer plenty of scope for keen gardeners.
There is a small orchard area with a selection of fruit trees, including apple and plum, an old mulberry tree and a delightful dell with summerhouse looking back to the main garden.
The paddock (Just under 1 Acre) has been left to become a wildlife area and, with the two wildlife ponds, attracts a large diversity of plant and animal life, including an abundance of butterflies.
This lovely garden has plenty of space for anyone wishing to grow their own produce, have chickens, etc. to become more self-sufficient.
A good-sized garage/workshop offers plenty of space for a variety of uses.
