Property Description

Full description

Georgian Grade II Listed period farmhouse
Attached traditional barns with development opportunity (subject to planning)
Beautiful and tranquil rural location
Attractive level pasture In all about 19 acres

Situation - Red Wychend occupies an enviable rural location, secluded amongst tranquil countryside within the parish of Much Cowarne. This part of Herefordshire lies within the scenic Frome Valley, characterised by traditional farms and is renowned for its timeless and unspoilt rural appeal. To the east are the Malvern Hills, to the north the Suckley Hills and Bromyard Downs. The property is tucked away, enjoying a totally peaceful position yet is conveniently placed for the cities of Hereford and Worcester. It is also well placed for the local centres of Bromyard, Ledbury and Malvern.

Description - This Georgian farmhouse sits at the end of its private drive with its paddock to the left hand side. There are lawns to both the front and rear of the house which are mainly laid to lawn. Steps lead to the front door and into the entrance hall. There are stairs leading to the 1st floor and to the cellar. There is a wealth of character and charm in the reception rooms with exposed beams and timbers throughout the house.
All in all the accommodation is manageable but spacious and of course there is the added attraction of extending into the adjoining barns or converting into separate accommodation, subject to the usual planning consent.
The house itself could benefit from some modernisation.

Adjoining Barns - These barns are attached to the west side of the house and provide 2.475 sq ft gross floor area plus the oast round. Historically these were working farm buildings but are now redundant. There are 3 distinct buildings plus a derelict hop kiln, constructed from the Georgian through to Victorian period. These too will require significant investment if being converted but offer great potential to add value and develop, with potential as a source of income. The planning opportunities have not been investigated to date.

Outside - The property sits in just under 19 acres. Having formal gardens to the front and rear. The pasture land lies to the west and is slightly elevated enjoying far reaching views and gently slopes in part to the south. To the side of the end barn is a wooded area which runs across to the rear garden.

The market town of Bromyard offers a good range of facilities to meet most domestic requirements.
