Situation - Frome Court is a stunning residential development, set within the ground of a Victorian Gothic convent designed by the renowned Edward Welby Pugin in 1863. With landscaped grounds, gardens and cloisters, it is situated in beautiful Herefordshire countryside very close to the village of Bartestree which has a village shop, public houses, village hall and hairdresser. Although in a rural location, the City of Hereford is less than 5 miles away and offers a wide choice of primary and secondary schooling, colleges, extensive retail and leisure facilities, hospital, Cathedral, theatre and sports grounds. The historic market town of Ledbury, 10.5 miles, has a good range of independent shops and interesting heritage with attractive black and white buildings. Excellent rail links to London Paddington and Birmingham New Street can be found in Hereford and the motorway network can be accessed via Junction 2 of the M50 just 4 miles south of Ledbury.
Description - The internal hallway is warm and inviting with access to the Lounge Diner, WC and a built in under stairs storage cupboard.
The Lounge Diner is a lovely space, having high ceilings, lead glass windows with patio doors opening onto the private terrace and archway through to the fully fitted Kitchen with a range of eye level and low level cupboards and built in appliances. A window from the kitchen overlooks the inner courtyard garden and floods the space with natural light.
There are two double bedrooms to the first floor. Bedroom 3 has a large built in cupboard with views out to the front. There is also a good size bathroom on the first floor with a 3 piece suite and rope that attaches to the original bell of the bell tower.
The master is situated over the first and second floor. Entering into a dressing space which is currently used as a music room, stairs lead up to a large bedroom space with en suite shower room and further vaulted ceilings.
Outside - Below the front garden lies the designated parking bay with additional visitor parking opposite. There are several communal green spaces nearby associated with the original grounds which lead to open fields. The property is one of only 3 in the building to have a private terrace space opening onto the most delightful communal Courtyard. Discovered at the centre of cloistered hallways, the expansive Courtyard offers a contemplative retreat beneath the benign glaze of the Madonna, with seating amid abundant planting of box parterres, pyramid yews, fragrant flowering shrubs with fig, clematis, rose and wisteria cloaking the towering walls.
The property also benefits from having two designated parking spaces.
