Herbert House is set on the private, residential development of Tredington Park and lends itself perfectly to multi-generational living with a fantastically spacious, interlinking annexe.  This comfortable period property was formally the Matron’s Quarters to the original hospital building, dating back to the early 1900’s. The whole plot totals 1.67 acres  (1 acre paddock) and the house is located at the end of a private, gated driveway, surrounded by open countryside.

The property is noticeably bright and spacious and the configuration offers versatility for modern family living.  It has been updated in part by the current owners and is not listed.  In addition to a recently refurbished 3 bedroom cottage (which could be used as a long term or holiday let), the house benefits from a spacious, single storey, interlinking, annex, ideal for extended family or a dependent relative.
