For sale for the first time in almost a hundred years, an interesting Grade 2 listed, early 17th century, detached farmhouse with range of excellent traditional outbuildings with much potential. The property is set in this wonderful rural location, off a country lane and away from main roads but yet still accessible to the towns of Ledbury, Bromyard and the City of Hereford.

The accommodation enjoys much character throughout and has oil central heating and comprises 5 reception rooms, 5 bedrooms being ideal for a family. Adjacent to the house are a range of traditional stone/brick buildings with potential as well as some relatively modern outbuildings. Furthermore there is approx 35.72 acres of valuable pasture and orchard. Must be viewed to fully appreciate all the many features this property has to offer.
