Full description

A FANTASTIC FAMILY HOME OR GUEST HOUSE & HOLIDAY LET BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY. A stunning restoration of an iconic property on the outskirts of Leominster. With origins dating back nearly 400 years but with the main house having been built during the Georgian period and retaining many of the features synonymous with that time. Nearly 5000 sq ft of accommodation in the main residence and attached converted barn.

Introduction - This distinctive detached Grade II listed residence of much charm and character has over the last 12 years undergone a major transformation and facelift and returned this once gentrified farmhouse back to its former glory. The painstaking restoration has created a home of much warmth, character and versatility and offers not only a lovely family home but also a converted barn to accommodate a relative, holiday let or offices.

The property was formerly a farmhouse owned by a college in Oxford but was sold back in the mid 20th century and used as a guest house for many years. Then in more recent times was a residential home when much of the character was sanitised to provide a more practical appearance. Our vendors have spent the last 12 years removing all evidence of this and thankfully have been able to restore and replace the lost heritage. As a very skilled joiner our vendor has been able use his considerable knowledge of period properties to create an authentic renovation.

Broadward Lodge (Ground Floor) - The property is set behind a high stone & brick wall and accessed through brick pillars with wrought iron gates. The main front door has a pretty cast iron canopy over and as you step into the hallway the space, grandeur and attention to detail become apparent. To the right is the drawing room with ornate fireplace, twin windows with shutters and ornate ceiling. On the opposite side is the morning room which again has a fireplace and period features. Continuing along the hallway, the stairs rise to the first floor and on the right hand side is the beautiful cloakroom. Straight ahead is the laundry room and stairs lead down to the study. This room is located in possibly the oldest part of the house and is partially subterranean. Back to the main hallway we enter the large living room with fireplace, feature stained glass window and the bay window has a glazed door which leads out in to the large "orangery" style conservatory.

Continuing through the ground floor there is a stunning formal dining room with glazed door leading out to the patio and also an intercommunicating door leads to the attached barn which is also lockable if required. The kitchen has a range of hand built oak units with plenty of cupboards, storage and slate work surfaces. There is also a walk in pantry and second WC.

Broadward Lodge (First Floor) - Taking the stairs to the first floor where the oak floorboards are exposed you arrive initially on the landing where three huge bedrooms are located each with their own unique aspects and features. The main bedroom is over 25' long with twin windows, hand made wardrobes and a luxury en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower cubicle. Also on this level is a further double bedroom with en-suite bathroom and a fifth bedroom with a built in airing cupboard. The main bathroom is stunning with large walk-in wet room shower cubicle, large bath and quality fixtures and fittings.

There are two further rooms which are located above the aforementioned study so steps lead down to the studio which also has its own toilet facilities and a door which leads to an external staircase leading to the rear of the property. Above this room and accessed from stairs rising off the landing is the games/hobbies room.

Broadward Lodge Barn - This is a wonderful example of a traditional barn that has been renovated, restored and imaginatively converted into additional living accommodation. Although it does interconnect with the main house it also has the benefit of its own front door and could be used as ancillary accommodation for a dependant relative, a holiday rental property, shorthold tenancy rental or perhaps as home offices. All the windows face south and overlook the garden and is extremely private.

The accommodation comprises a well equipped kitchen, two reception rooms which include a large living room and another room which could be used as a dining room or bedroom as there is a stunning wet room on this floor. Stairs rise from the hallway to the main bedroom and en-suite bathroom.

The surprises however do not stop there as there are three further rooms which are currently only partially renovated and with its own access which would facilitate a further property comprising kitchen, living room, bedroom and bathroom

Gardens And Parking - The property has a large tarmac driveway and parking area for numerous vehicles and this leads to further space to the rear of the main house.

Between the house and the wall to the front is an area well planted with flowerbeds, shrubs and mature trees and a pathway which leads to the raised and enclosed patio area immediately outside of the conservatory. Steps then lead down to the "sunken garden which is laid to lawn again with specimen plants, shrubs and trees.

The pathway continues around to the south facing garden in front of the Barn which has views across the fields and has been naturally landscaped to take advantage of the sun and has a patio area with shrubs and flower borders. To the rear of the property is a further patio area with rockeries, greenhouse, concealed bin store and oil tank area and a large brick built potting shed or workshop.

In all the property sits on a plot of approximately 0.365 acres.
