Full description

Cagebrook House is a handsome house surrounded by its own gardens and grounds. Listed grade II, the house is believed to have been constructed in about 1720 with later additions and is principally of mellow brick under a slate roof. The coach house to the north of the main house is believed to be a little older and may have been the original house on the site.

Approached down a tree lined drive to a gravel sweep, the house has in recent years been renovated and restored and provides an extremely comfortable family home having well proportioned reception rooms that are also ideal for entertaining. Many original features including shuttered sash windows, ornate plasterwork, handsome fireplaces, sprung floors and a fine staircase have been retained throughout the house. More recent additions include a splendid Garden Room overlooking the lawns to the rear.

Attached to the house is the Annexe which could easily be incorporated into the main house or could be used as separate accommodation for staff or guests.

Cagebrook House is situated to the west of the Cathedral city of Hereford between the villages of Eaton Bishop and Clehonger. The city centre has all the expected shops, services and facilities of an important Country town including the renowned Cathedral School.
Cagebrook's position allows for quick access north on the A49 to Shrewsbury and Ludlow, south on the A465 to Abergavenny and South Wales, or east on the A49 to Ross-on-Wye and the M50. Hereford has a rail station with intercity connections.
Herefordshire is well known for its rural and sporting amenities. These include syndicated shooting which is usually available; trout and salmon fishing on the River Wye and its tributaries; racing at Hereford, Ludlow, Worcester and Cheltenham; golf courses at Belmont, Wormsley and Ross-on-Wye; well established literary and music festivals at Hereford, Hay-on-Wye, Leominster and Ludlow; and glorious walks and rides through the surrounding countryside.

Description Of Property - Cagebrook House is a handsome house surrounded by its own gardens and grounds.

Gardens & Grounds - The lovely formal gardens surround the house on two sides with the remainder of the land being divided into paddocks and attractive amenity woodland with a lake.
