Tenure: Freehold

Dormington House is a fine Grade ll listed
property of particular merit. This Georgian
Vicarage was rebuilt in 1764 and the current
property featured on the front cover of
Country Life magazine and 'The Perfect English
Country House' by Candida Lycett-Green.

The house has been a happy home to the current
owners for over 40 years and its warmth of
character and abundance of natural light is
apparent immediately.

An inviting entrance hall, which boasts original
window shutters, makes way for spacious
reception rooms all with oak floors. The kitchen/
breakfast room is the heart of the home and
houses a multi-fuel Aga and a range of bespoke
units. To the rear aspect is a large conservatory
with two sets of double doors to the private
rear garden.

Continuing to the first floor are two double
bedrooms, one with ensuite facilities, both
benefitting from views over the gardens, along
with a family bathroom, all with exposed Elm
floors and continuing the theme of natural light
and character.

The stairs rise to a second floor with three further bedrooms and a shower room.

The Coach House annexe is located above the double garage offering a spacious one bedroom apartment. The annexe is separately metered and currently subject to a short hold tenancy providing rent of £350 pcm.

Dormington House stands proud overlooking
typically beautiful Herefordshire landscapes
of apple orchards and farm land. Surrounding
countryside is perfect for fine walks and cycling.

The nearby villages of Bartestree and Fownhope
have village shops, with Fownhope and
Mordiford boasting excellent pubs and schools.

The county town of Hereford offers extensive
facilities including a Waitrose, Sainsburys,
hospital, cinema complex, shops and cafes, and
some well-regarded restaurants.

Communications in the area are good with a
train station at Hereford on the main Cardiff
to Manchester and Hereford to Oxford lines.
The M50 and M5 motorway networks are also
within striking distance.

A sweeping gravel drive passes through a front
garden of rose beds and lawn and continues to
the coach house.

To the rear of the house is a typical vicarage garden with a large walled lawn, herbaceous borders and a productive kitchen garden.

An orchard of plum, apple and pear mixes with wild meadow and mature oak, tulip, sycamore and walnut trees.
