The attractive rural village of Much Marcle is situated in south Herefordshire between the traditional market towns of Ledbury and Ross-on-Wye. The area is surrounded by rolling countryside dotted with pastureland and cider apple orchards, for which the region is well known. This part of Herefordshire is still very much a rural community with a timeless appeal, but also benefits from excellent communication links to the rest of the country.

Bodenham Farmhouse

* Bodenham Farmhouse is understood to date back to the 17th Century and was originally the Home Farm for Homme House and the Estate, which is situated nearby. * The property has later, Georgian additions which contribute to the wonderful array of original features that complement this beautiful home, and include exposed beams, original floorboards, plaster mouldings/cornicing, fireplaces, windows, and doors. * The front door leads through into the main entrance hall and to the two, separate reception rooms, located either side; a beautifully light and spacious drawing room with a fireplace with flagstone hearth (potential for the installation of a wood-burner, subject to the necessary permissions), and a well-proportioned dining room, also with an attractive, original fireplace. Both rooms have fabulous arched windows, and have window seats overlooking the front garden.

Bodenham Farmhouse ctd.

* A generous kitchen/breakfast room provides plenty of storage and there is ample space for a table and chairs. The kitchen benefits from an gas/electric range cooker, a dishwasher, a fridge and is open to the rear sitting/family room with wood-burner and French doors leading out to a walled courtyard and seating area. * The cellar can be accessed internally off the kitchen, or externally from the parking area. This is a good, dry cellar providing excellent storage, which has historically been used as a home office and offers a useful, flexible space. * Off the rear lobby, there is a good-sized utility room which provides additional storage, plenty of room for coats and boots, and space for a washing machine, tumble dryer and fridge-freezer. There is also a separate, downstairs WC.

Bodenham Farmhouse ctd.

* A beautiful, wide staircase leads up to a split landing where there are four generous double bedrooms, three with en-suite bath/shower rooms and one with built-in storage/wardrobes. * A further staircase leads up to the second floor, where there is a large landing area, which could be utilised as a further sitting room to the two double bedrooms, which both have built-in wardrobes. There is also a separate shower room which services both rooms. * The top floor is a versatile space and offers potential to create a fabulous bedroom suite, to include a bedroom, sitting room, dressing room and bathroom.

The Outside

* The property is approached off the main road via a gated driveway which leads up to Bodenham Farmhouse and the parking area, which has space for several vehicles. * The main garden lies to the front of the property, which is set well back from the road, and is mainly lawn complemented by a variety of established, mature trees and shrubs. There is further scope for keen gardeners. * There is a lovely woodland area lying to the rear of the property which also has the vestiges of the old driveway leading to Homme House (disused for many years), a wonderful piece of history.
