A delightful property successfully combining a substantial modern extension with the original stone cottage, thoughtful use of natural materials in flagstone flooring and exposed timbers marry well with walls of glass to create a stunning family home that is as practical as it is beautiful.

Nestled in the heart of Upton Bishop it is very well situated for both work and leisure, being walking distance to popular gastro-pub, sandwiched between 2 golf courses and lying a mere 2 miles to the M50 motorway. While the market town of Ross-On-Wye is just over 4 miles, it is all but equidistant to the cities of Hereford (14miles) and Gloucester (16miles).

The Property

Stepping into the glass-walled Storm Porch provides ample space for the divestment of garments and muddy boots before continuing into the Entry Hall where dramatic riven flagstones throughout harmonise the downstairs.

The Sitting Room enjoys dual aspect with a window view across open countryside and a wall of bi-fold doors that open to the rear courtyard, a sumptuous room made cosy by a Clearview woodburner set atop a granite hearth.

The Family Room or Snug is a great malleable space to satisfy diverse requirements and enjoys window views to the front gardens. Exposed timber beams add a charming touch and conceal a large under-stairs cupboard providing ample storage.

Leading past a Downstairs Shower Room with shower cubicle, WC and basin lies the classic Dining Room, benefitting from twin, deep-cill windows overlooking the courtyard.

The Kitchen is fully-fitted in cream shaker units with black granite countertops, featured are space for range cooker and US style fridge freezer, integrated are Belfast twin sink and Miele dishwasher. While an external stable door opens out onto the courtyard.

The Breakfast Room is open to the Kitchen providing ample space for more informal dining and has a wall of cupboards for extensive storage. 

Before the Master lies a double-sided, glass-walled Atrium with views to both front and rear gardens, currently used as a bright and airy Home Office it could as easily make a lovely Reading Room.              

The Master Bedroom has engineered Oak flooring with double patio doors opening onto a balcony and a wall of fitted wardrobes and cupboards discreetly concealing entry into the Ensuite. Featuring a large walk-in cubicle with both regular and rainhead showers, heated towel rail, WC and oval basin set on wooden unit. 

The first Double Bedroom has painted wooden floors and window overlooking the front gardens. While the second Double is carpeted, twin windows have views to the courtyard and open countryside. The Single Bedroom has a built-in cupboard housing the pressurised water system.  

The Family Bathroom has a freestanding slipper bath, large double head shower cubicle, WC and basin in vanity unit with mirrored wall unit above. 

The Annexe has a Double Bedroom with an Ensuite Shower Room and a separate adjoining Utility Room with space for laundry white goods. It could easily be made to accommodate multi-generational living but offers a myriad of options as Artist’s Studio, Craft Room, Workshop or Home Office. 


The Front Gardens are mainly laid to lawn, while the driveway leads to a Double Garage. The rear flagstone courtyard features a Swimming Pool with gorgeous Summerhouse and ample space for Outdoor Dining. Discreetly screened is a Shed housing some of the pool equipment, much of which has been replaced this season.
