The Story

SUNSHINE DAYS
The house was built in the 1980s and the couple have turned the small farm cottage into a beautiful property. “We took the roof off, raised the walls, added a fabulous open garden room and created a spacious family home full of natural light, which I absolutely love.
“When we renovated the house we wanted to make sure we made the most of the stunning setting, putting in large windows wherever possible. It is a real sun trap here and we wanted the house to be filled with sunshine.”

LIGHT AND AIRY
Inside, the spacious rooms are flooded with natural light.
“The L-shaped drawing room has a wood burning stove, which is very cosy. It opens into our dining room, which has the most fantastic views across the Black Mountains. Whatever the time of year, when you are at the table, it is spectacular,” says the owner. “Our kitchen is very much a cook’s kitchen. A large Rangemaster stove is at the heart of it and my wife is a very keen chef so we designed it with that in mind.” Stretching across the back of the house is the family’s fabulous garden room.
“It is undoubtedly a room which could be the hub of the home. It is a stunning space, open to the garden and the fantastic views. We love sitting out there in the evenings, enjoying the magical scenery, and the peace and quiet.”

EXTRA SPACE
The garden room connects the house with a large annexe, offering great flexibility. “It was originally built for the stockmen and as a farm office but we decided to convert it into a spacious two bedroom annexe, which could be either completely self-contained or part of the family home, adding even more space. Downstairs it has a drawing room, kitchen and bathroom and what was once used as the farm office is now a further room but could be a bedroom or study. Upstairs, we have added two further bedrooms and a Jack-and-Jill bathroom. The space is so flexible. It would make a great pad for teenagers or older children or equally for an elderly relative, enabling them to still have their independence.”

ROOM WITH A VIEW
It is upstairs that the stunning setting of Weir House really comes alive, in particular in the wonderful master suite. “Our room has views at one end stretching out across the rolling fields, and to the other you can see the mountains. It is an amazing room to wake up in.”
French doors open on to a private balcony overlooking the river.
“It does actually get called the breakfast room as it is our favourite place to sit with a morning coffee,” he laughs. “It is the perfect spot to watch the early morning sun lighting up the landscape around you.” The three bedrooms and bathroom lead of a beautiful galleried landing. “It is a fantastic feature in the house, with floor to ceiling glass enabling you to see for miles. It is such a large and sunny space that my wife uses it as her office.”

OUTSIDE SPACE
Weir House is set in 2.5 acres of land, combining gardens, outbuildings and fields.
“When we closed the trout farm we filled in the ponds and started a vineyard. So far we have planted around 200 vines and have plans for a further 1,500. We have had some great crops and have made a lot of wine which has been great fun,” he smiles. “The river runs through the land and we have our own waterfall and weir, which is so beautiful and one of the reasons we spend so much time outdoors. We have a seat right by the weir and it is the perfect place to enjoy our home, it is so secluded and quiet with only the sound of the water flowing.”

Setting the scene

Set in the foothills of the Black Mountains with the River Honddu running through its grounds, Weir House is a property in the most stunning of locations.
Surrounded by 2.5 acres of land, it was once a thriving trout farm until the current owners retired and set about transforming the land into a vineyard. Now, the huge tanks have been replaced with grassland and hundreds of vines which produce a large crop of grapes every year.
The weir, after which the house is named, has been on the farm’s land since around the 1300s and was once the feed-in weir to the corn mill in the village. The grounds also have a chilled storage building, which was once used for fish and now for wine, and its own shop that could make a perfect tea room or farm shop.
