Situation - The rural village of Abbeydore is situated on the River Dore, in the beautiful Golden Valley. The village is home to the renowned 12th century Cistercian Dore Abbey. Just 12 miles away is the ancient city of Hereford, which dates back to the 7th Century and is home to a magnificent cathedral, which houses the famous Chained Library and Mappa Mundi. About the same distance away is the Welsh town of Abergavenny with rail connections to London and good road links to the South West. Only 15 miles from the village is the wonderful market town of Hay- on-Wye, famous for its Literary Festival and bookshops; it is one of the most visited tourist attractions in Wales. The village of Ewyas Harold, just one mile from Abbeydore has an excellent Store and Post Office as well as a Butcher’s Shop, a Primary School, a Doctors’ Surgery and numerous Community Groups.
Description - Hillside, built exactly 100 years ago, has always remained in the same family. It retains a number of original features and is now on the market for the first time. Approached via a long sweeping tarmac drive and turning circle, the property stands at the top of a hill with outstanding far reaching views over Dore Abbey and surrounding countryside. To the rear of the property there is a double carport, workshop and wood store. There are steps down to the front door, which can also be accessed by a level path. From here the door opens into an entrance hall which provides access to all primary rooms. The sitting room is a good size with lots of light flooding in from the large box window with wooden and panelled seating and a door that opens onto a small tiled porch overlooking the Abbey. Adjoining the sitting room to the east is a garden room with double doors to an outdoor barbeque area. The dining room also has a large box window and seated surround from which to enjoy the panoramic views. The kitchen is fitted with base units, integrated eye-level oven and space for a small table and chairs. A door opens into the original chilled pantry with plenty of cupboard storage and shelving. Leading from the small back porch is a WC and basin. The property also has a utility/laundry room with further cupboard space. The master bedroom with ensuite shower room has double doors opening onto the outside patio area and views over farmland. Bedroom two, with wash hand basin is also a double room with similar outlook. Located opposite is a family bathroom.
Stairs from the entrance hall lead to the first floor with access to bedroom three/office space, with two velux windows providing lovely views. Opposite is a shower room fitted with a three-piece white suite. Both rooms offer access to extensive loft storage areas.
The garden and grounds of the property are a huge selling point providing outstanding views in a peaceful and private rural location. There is an original grass tennis court/croquet lawn and a small orchard with productive fruit trees.
