In an elevated position on the eastern side of the River Wye, this substantial property overlooks a vista of woodlands and forest. The property approached via tall wrought iron gates and a long block paved driveway giving it an enviable degree of privacy. Although the grounds extend to approximately 9 acres they have been designed in the main for low maintenance with natural woodlands, terracing, planted areas with a wide variety of dwarf conifers, shrubs and ground cover. To one side of the main house there is a beautiful fruit orchard of over 50 trees including apple and pear trees, and to the other side a full size all weather tennis court.

It now offers very flexible accommodation and scope for multi generation living or just as a large single family home.
