Originally part of the Bishop of Hereford estate, imposing Tupsley House gave its name to the local area and was substantially extended in the Victorian age. The grand house retains much of its period character while over recent years it has been expertly and lovingly renovated to satisfy contemporary expectations of ease and comfort with period-appropriate replacement double glazing throughout much of the house, new emergency lighting and last year’s installation of a highly efficient, new boiler system.

The house even surprises with unexpectedly modern delights such as the Hot Tub Cabin and Cellar Entertainment Room. Planning permission is being sought for the development of an entirely private new driveway to the right of the property.

Dominating from its elevated position, Tupsley House is located at the point the city gives way to the open countryside of the Lugg Flats – a SSI of unique flora. Tupsley itself is renown for its numerous and family-friendly amenities, with a short walk to Ofsted “Excellent” and “Good” primary schools, Bishops Bluecoat secondary school and less than a mile away the Hereford Sixth Form, Colleges and nascent university. Tupsley also offers an array of local shops with family butcher’s, pubs, post office, GP surgery with pharmacy. While the Quarry park supports junior football leagues, scouting HQ, playground and dog walking.
