Internal Inspection Highly Recommended.

Location & Description

Coppice House is situated on the slopes of the hill above Castle Frome, which is a small village in Herefordshire. It is well placed for access to the local towns of Ledbury (6 miles), Bromyard (7 miles) and Malvern (7 miles) and is 13 miles from the Cathedral city of Hereford. Within the village itself is the parish church of St Michael, an early 12th century building known for its carved Norman font. The nearby town of Ledbury offers a comprehensive range of amenities including a supermarket, shops, pubs, bakery, bank and Post Office together with primary and secondary schools. There is also a mainline railway station offering excellent links to London Paddington and Birmingham New Street. The M50 motorway is available approximately 4 miles to the south of Ledbury.

Nestled within a secluded woodland, Coppice House enjoys an elevated position with superb far reaching views across the Herefordshire countryside toward the Black Mountains. Over the last few years, the current owners have completely reconfigured and imaginatively refurbished the property to create a most charming and much loved family home. It is evident that little expense has been spared during the comprehensive scheme of works with the installation of a new oil fired central heating system and new wiring throughout. Demonstrating a clear flare for design, the property now boasts beautifully appointed and well proportioned accommodation with high quality fittings including a bespoke Neptune fitted kitchen, contemporary bathroom suites and natural stone flooring. The accommodation is approached on the ground floor by a striking oak framed porch leading to an open entrance hall with a large feature window. Doors lead to a generously proportioned living room with an inglenook fireplace and an open plan dining kitchen, which serves as a hub at the heart of the house. Both rooms have feature exposed beams and newly fitted bi-fold doors opening onto the garden. There is also a utility room, providing further useful storage, and a cloakroom. On the first floor, a bright and airy galleried landing leads to the master bedroom with an en suite shower room, three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. One of the great strengths of Coppice House is its position, tucked away along a sweeping driveway enjoying an idyllic setting with complete privacy. The grounds are extensive and approach almost 5 acres with a large area of formal garden and an adjoining woodland with various deciduous and evergreen trees creating a haven for natural wildlife. The property also benefits from a range of outbuildings including a detached double garage, adjoining workshop and an impressive studio. With so much to offer, an internal inspection is highly recommended to appreciate this truly wonderful home. The accommodation with approximate dimensions is as follows;

Outside

Coppice House is approached by a sweeping driveway leading to a generous area of parking and to a large detached DOUBLE GARAGE with a STUDIO. The garage is divided into two with power and light connected. Each half measures 29'07" x 14'00" and 12'11" x 11'09" respectively. There is also an adjoining WORKSHOP to the rear. The studio is currently used as a home office but could be adapted to suit a variety of needs including annexe potential by incorporating one of the garages. The studio is L-shaped (25'03" x 19'05" maximum overall measurement) with high levels of insulation to the floor, walls and ceiling together with a large double glazed window, two electric heaters and ample power points. Steps lead down from the driveway to a large gravelled area, which wraps around the house and in turn leads to a sizeable seating area and the main garden. Adjacent to the side of the house is a brick built STORE with power and light connected. The garden is arranged over two tiers, predominately laid to lawn with mature planting and established shrub borders. There are also two large ornamental ponds, which are thriving with natural wildlife. Pathways from the garden crisscross through the adjoining woodland, which has a variety of deciduous trees including oak, ash, hazelnut and silver birch as well as evergreen pine trees. A trail weaves its way down to a natural spring fed pond providing a habitat for tadpoles, frogs and wild ducks. There are benches strategically positioned throughout the woodland serving as ideal viewing platforms from where far reaching views across Herefordshire can be enjoyed. The grounds in total extend to almost 5 ACRES.
