Land

Situation

Gold Hill House is situated on the periphery of the popular village of Bosbury, in a super rural location. This part of Herefordshire lies close to the Worcestershire border and is renowned for its scenic and unspoilt countryside. The area offers a sought-after rural quality of life, without being isolated, combined with excellent access to the market town of Ledbury. Malvern and the larger towns and cities of Worcester, Hereford and Birmingham are easily accessible.

Gold Hill House


Gold Hill House is a delightful, Grade II Listed property, which was refurbished about 10 years ago. The property is arranged over 3 storeys and also has a large and useful cellar with good concrete floor.
A super and spacious open-plan kitchen/breakfast room forms the heart of this lovely home; the country-style oak fitted kitchen offers plenty of storage and also benefits from a large central island with granite work surface. There is a Belling electric range cooker with an electric hob and an independent gas hob (bottled gas).
The large utility/laundry/boot rooms offer space for white goods and further storage, along with a WC and a rear door to the courtyard garden. A large store room is situated off the utility and also houses the boiler, with another external door to the rear patio. This space is perfect for storing gardening equipment, logs, bicycles, or could be a useful workspace.
There are 2, very generously-sized reception rooms; the main sitting room opens from the kitchen/breakfast room and has a wonderful inglenook fireplace with Clearview wood burner and a snug nook, which would make a great library, additional seating area or office space. The second reception room also has a fireplace with EFEL wood burner and offers a versatile and flexible space.
Internal steps from the rear hall lead to the basement cellar, a predominantly dry and useful storage or workshop area.
An oak staircase leads from the front entrance hall to the galleried landing on the first floor, where there are 3 good-sized double bedrooms plus a single room. 3 of these rooms have en-suite facilities, and there is also a family bathroom.
A further staircase leads to the second floor where there are 2 large double bedrooms and family bathroom with separate wet room. These spaces also lend themselves to creating a master or guest suite to incorporate a double bedroom, dressing area, bathroom and sitting room.
There are a wealth of exposed timbers and beams throughout the property, which originally dates to the 17th Century with further alterations being made in the 18th Century. The wonderful and decorative brick faade was added in the 19th Century.

The Outside


The property is approached via a long, private track which separates through a 5-bar gate to the private gravelled driveway and ample parking.
The garden is modest for the size of property but has ample scope for improvement. The south-facing front garden is lawned and enjoys a fine vista south, towards Ledbury. The rest of the garden to the rear is a raised terrace which borders the pastureland.
The pastureland is stock fenced, sloping and lies to the north of the house, with direct access from the garden. There is gated vehicular access off the entrance track. There is also mains water to the land.
