Situation

Broomfield House stands in an elevated position commanding stunning views across the Wye Valley and the hillsides beyond. The house is located on the edge of the village of Glasbury-on-Wye where there is a church, a village hall, pubs and garage. The beautiful and historic market town of Hay-on-Wye is approximately 5 miles to the north-east and offers excellent local amenities including a range of shops, schools and is particularly noted for its book shops, antique shops and the world famous Hay Literary Festival and all year round cultural events. Further into Wales, within the Brecon Beacons National Park, is the market town of Brecon (approx 12 miles to the south-west), with wider amenities and services. The larger cities of Hereford (approx 25 miles to the east) and Cardiff (approx 54 miles to the south) are both within easy reach.

Description

Broomfield is a handsome Grade II Listed Georgian house of Italianate Regency style. Part of the house dates back to the 1750's with later additions in the early nineteenth century.
The property has been sympathetically renovated and refurbished over recent years to provide a superb home. The house retains many of its original features with plaster ceiling cornices, magnificent fireplaces, polished wooden floors and shuttered sash windows.

The house is occasionally used as a boutique guest house offering luxury accommodation with bed & breakfast and excellent guest suites in the main house with further suites in the East Wing self-contained annexe. The house is privately set in approximately 5 acres of formal gardens, woodland and has a large productive walled garden.

On the right is the formal dining room, with a double aspect, enjoying views across the valley and gardens together with a French door that opens out onto the side garden. On the left of the hall is the large drawing room with two large sash windows overlooking the Wye Valley and is a perfect setting for entertaining guests. A rear hall leads off the hall to the rear of the house which includes a delightful library, cloakroom and the kitchen/breakfast room with bespoke fitted units and a flagstone floor. A staircase leads off the ground floor, near the kitchen, to an impressive cellar with four dedicated storage areas. The ground floor accommodation in the main house is completed by a useful study that is situated adjacent to the drawing room. Two separate staircases serve the main house giving access to the first and second floors by the principal staircase and the old secondary servants staircase.
