Stoneham House is located just outside the village of Bodenham, in a rural, yet accessible location with views over common land, surrounded by countryside and a short distance north of the Cathedral City of Hereford. Historically known for its Hop fields and the white-faced Hereford cattle, it is still very much an agriculturally based community today. This property is well-placed with good access to the local market towns of Leominster, Bromyard, Ledbury and the City of Hereford.
Stoneham House is a modern, detached house, built c.1986, which offers spacious and light accommodation throughout. The property is very well cared for and is extremely well presented.
The property has been very well thought out and all the ground floor rooms leads of a main entrance hall, which also accommodates the stairs to the first floor.
A spacious, country-style, modern fitted kitchen/breakfast room offers plenty of storage and benefits from a mains gas Cuisinemaster range cooker with cooker hood and an integrated dishwasher. The American-style fridge-freezer is also included in the sale. There is also a separate dining room which enjoys views over the garden.
The comfortable sitting room is complemented by a wood-burner set on a slate hearth and sliding patio doors which lead out to a conservatory overlooking, and with direct access to, the garden.
There is also a separate utility/boot room leading off the kitchen and an inner lobby with access to both the front and rear of the property and to the large double garage/workshop, as well as a study/home office and a useful downstairs WC.
Stoneham House Ctd.
The stairs lead up to a light, galleried landing and four bedrooms, three double rooms and one good-sized single room. Two bedrooms benefit from built-in wardrobes, one being the main bedroom which also has an en-suite bathroom.
There is also a lovely, family bathroom with freestanding, modern slipper bath and a separate walk-in shower, and two very useful walk-in storage cupboards on the landing.
The property is located towards the end of a ''no through' lane and is approached via a long, unadopted single track, which leads down to the driveway and ample parking area to the front of the property.
Stoneham House sits well within its plot and there is plenty of space around the property. The large, private rear garden can be accessed from the parking area via a garden gate, a separate vehicular gate, or, indeed, directly from the house.
The secluded gardens are mainly lawn, planted with a range of established trees, evergreen shrubs and flowering plants, with a raised terrace forming a patio around the rear of the house. Two pergolas provide attractive seating areas; perfect for seasonal dining, socialising and entertaining or to just sit and enjoy the peaceful surroundings.
The garden is complemented by a variety of eating and cooking apple trees, along with a plum tree and there is plenty of space to create a vegetable garden, if desired.
There is also a single, timber stable (suitable for a pony), a lean-to covered log store, a timber shed and a greenhouse.
