Location & Description

Bartestree is a sought after village situated on the eastern side of the Cathedral City of Hereford.. The village is well served with a local shop, active village hall with cricket pavilion, public house and is within easy reach of nursery school and both primary and secondary schools. Hereford City Centre is approximately 4 miles distant and offers a comprehensive range of facilities and amenities including Hereford County Hospital, Sixth Form and College of Technology, shops, supermarkets, restaurants, schools, theatre and cinema. There is also a railway station with direct trains to Birmingham New Street, Manchester Piccadilly, Cardiff and London Paddington.

Bartestree House is a most attractive substantial period property occupying a delightful position along a quiet country lane on the edge of the village of Bartestree. Bartestree House was once a smaller cottage with a considerable Victorian extension added to the front of the property in 1892, which was completed in 1897. Given its traditional architectural style, Bartestree House boasts a wealth of fine period features including original encaustic Victorian floor tiles, exposed floor boards, impressive feature fireplaces, large sash windows and deep skirting boards. The property has been in the ownership of the current vendor for 40 years and offers considerable scope for a scheme of sympathetic refurbishment. The generous and well proportioned accommodation extends to approximately 3175 sq ft and is approached at ground floor level with an attractive verandah, which provides an ideal covered seating area. From here a wooden entrance door opens into a large reception hall and leads to an elegant drawing room, formal dining room and breakfast kitchen. A rear lobby leads to a cloakroom, useful walk in pantry, snug/office room, utility room and porch. A sweeping staircase from the reception hall leads to a galleried landing, which in turn leads to the master bedroom with an en suite bathroom (which is also accessed from the landing), four further bedrooms and a family bathroom. Outside, Bartestree House is approached by a sweeping gravelled driveway which leads to an area of parking and to a detached SINGLE GARAGE. A wooden door in the garden wall provides access to the lane and the Victorian post box with weekday collections. The grounds belonging to Bartestree House are a true delight and comprise large areas laid to lawn interspersed with a variety of mature shrubs, plants and trees. The grounds in total extend to approximately 0.6 ACRES. Offered with no onward chain, the agent's highly recommend an early inspection. The accommodation with approximate dimensions is as follows:
