The property is situated close to the small and picturesque rural village of Hoarwithy, which is situated within the Parish of Hentland on the River Wye. The earliest mention of the village appears in 1005 and references to the name "La Horewythy", thought to mean "At the willow tree on the boundary", found in texts dating to the late 13th/early 14th Centuries. The area is renowned for its beautiful, unspoilt, and timeless appeal, and the surrounding countryside is characterised by traditional farms and wooded hills. This area offers a secluded and sought-after rural idyll, combined with excellent communication links to the rest of the country.


This well-presented family home combines ancient origins with modern living, having been substantially remodelled in the Mid-20th century. With origins from the 15th century, denoted by substantial cruck beams, the property was listed subsequent to the remodelling. A comprehensive refurbishment was conducted in the early 2000's.
This spacious and detached property has been very well maintained and immaculately presented. It benefits from high ceilings, generous room sizes and oodles of light from large, double-glazed windows.
A welcoming and impressive entrance hall opens to the two large reception rooms and on to stairs, study and the fitted kitchen at the rear of the house. The triple aspect sitting room has stunning views and French doors to the rear garden plus an open fire. Substantial beams to the ceiling give a sense of the historic origins.

The Outside

The property is approached via a single-track lane to Little Dewchurch. This is a very secluded and peaceful position and yet only a mile from the A49, giving excellent regional access.
A tarmac entrance drive and cattle grid lead to a large gravelled front drive and parking area. A single garage with car charge point is attached to the house and opposite is a detached outbuilding with workshop and large storeroom.
The front garden provides a mix of lawn, herbaceous and floral beds with a mature hedged boundary. The rear garden provides a formal lawn by the house and a lower garden with vegetable patch.
The property is surrounded by orchards and mature pasture, with no close neighbours or intensive commercial farming.
Opposite the front garden, across the lane is a small pasture paddock of ¾ of an acre. This sheltered paddock is stock fenced and has a small barn providing a stable and storeroom. There is no water connected for this paddock.
