Full description

Approached via a long drive between
fields of pastureland, Bernithan Court is a
handsome and spacious Grade II* period
property which dates back to 1692. The property has been restored sympathetically over the years and has been a wonderful family home to the current vendors since 1974. Many original features have been retained such as flagstone floors,
oak panelled walls, decorative cornices, ceiling roses and open fireplaces. The property has been well maintained but could benefit from modernising in parts. This superb property provides excellent accommodation primarily arranged over three floors, but also having good sized cellar rooms. The main door opens into
the reception hall, off which are the two principal reception rooms, large kitchen and stairs to the first floor. The drawing room is a superb room with high ceilings, a grand stone open fireplace and large windows taking full advantage of the
beautiful views over the gardens. The formal dining room is another light filled room and has a feature oak-panelled wall with an open fireplace and original wooden floorboards. The dining room is of excellent proportions with plenty of space for a large table for formal occasions. The traditional kitchen/breakfast room is of good size, has ample space for appliances and has an informal staircase which would have once been used by the housekeepers. The third reception room to the ground floor is the equally impressive
sitting room which has a beautiful aspect with views towards the Black Mountains. The ground floor is completed by the boot room and cloak room. To the first floor and second floor are nine bedrooms, three bathrooms and two separate toilets. The bedrooms are of excellent proportions. The property has a wonderful feel throughout and the accommodation flows beautifully. The cellars have been well utilised for a boiler room, store and wine cellar.

There are two semi-detached properties. 1 Bernithan Cottages has a kitchen, sitting room, dining room and shower room to the ground
floor and to the first floor there are 4 bedrooms and a family bathroom. 2 Bernithan Cottages has a kitchen with pantry, sitting room, dining
room and bathroom to the ground floor and two bedrooms and an office to the first floor. Both cottages have parking and a garden.

History ~
The house was built in 1692 on the site of
an earlier house owned by the Hoskyns family since 1616. It passed through several hands in the 18th and 19th centuries and was purchased by Colonel Barnardiston in 1927. The Colonel
restored both the house and the garden and modernized the farm, even winning awards for his work. In 1951 the house and farm were bought
by the great-aunt of the current vendors. Major restoration was carried out from 1972-74 and again in 1985. It is thought the granary block across the courtyard may predate the house by
50 years. It was originally L-shaped but was squared off in Victorian times. The historic driveway led to the wrought iron gates at the end of the walled garden. The walled garden was restored in 2002.

Income ~
Bernithan Court has strong existing income streams including; rental of the two cottages, the monthly rental of the large stone barn (currently used as a workshop), the outbuildings (currently
used for storage) and the rental of the pasture land for grazing. The arable land is farmed by the neighbouring farmer. The property benefits from all sporting rights and subject to planning consents there are further income stream opportunities such as shooting, events venue & glamping.

Bernithan Court is set on the edge of the picturesque rural village of Llangarron, set in stunning South Herefordshire countryside. The parish of Llangarron is within easy reach of amenities, the market town of Ross-On-Wye is just
5 miles away and Monmouth is 7 miles away. Both offer a good range of independent shops, supermarkets, public and independent schools. More extensive amenities are available from the Cathedral cities of Hereford, which is just 13 miles
away and Gloucester, 21 miles away. Communications are excellent with the A40 dual carriageway running through Ross and Monmouth and connecting to the M50 and M5, providing fast access to the West Midlands, Bristol and South
Wales. Hereford, Gloucester, Ledbury and Newport have mainline rail stations and nearby international airports include Birmingham, Cardiff and Bristol.

Sporting and Recreation ~
The property is close to many recreational activities with horse racing available at Hereford and Cheltenham with the Cheltenham festival the highlight of the racing calendar in March of every
year. Bernithan Court Farm is located on the edge of the of the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural beauty which offers beautiful scenery for walking, riding and fishing. Further recreational
opportunities are available at Hay-on-Wye with its bookshops and festival.

Outbuildings
The attractive granary block across the courtyard from the main house was originally L shaped but was squared off in the Victorian times. It has not been lived in for some time however, it offers excellent potential for an annexe subject to the necessary consents or as its current usage of additional storage space. Gardens and grounds The main house has large areas of beautifully maintained walled gardens which are mainly laid to lawn interspersed with mature trees, shrubs and flower beds. To the north of the property is a tennis court, fruit and vegetable garden and pond. The grounds extend to approximately 120 acres in total which consist of arable land, pasture and woodland. Please see the farm plan.

Farm Outbuildings
There is a collection of useful farm outbuildings which hold a huge amount of potential for conversion subject to planning. The outbuildings include a large stone barn (Grade II listed) with
stable block, a brick outbuilding with woodstores and a large timber barn. Located by the lake are further farm buildings which are currently rented out for storage purposes.

Redmire Pool
Possibly the most iconic carp fishery in the UK and synonymous for the capture of Clarissa, a then British mirror Carp record in 1951. The pool
generates an annual income of about £40,000. Further information on the income streams is available from the vendor’s agent.
