HISTORY - Arrow Green was built in the 70’s on the site of what was once the village bowling green. The lady owner of Arrow Bank, who also owned the bowling green land, commissioned the architects of Hereford Cathedral to construct this distinctive house with its soaring entrance hall and copper roof. A keen gardener she wanted a sunny, light filled house overlooking her secluded garden. She overlooked every detail of the design even ensuring that the bedroom windows were positioned to perfectly frame the park-like view when sitting up in bed.
In the current owner’s family since the 80’s, the house was thoroughly insulated when reclad in cedar at first floor level eight years ago and the brick walls injected with foam.
