£1.8 million Herefordshire country house with spa and holiday lets for sale

A COUNTRY house in Herefordshire’s Golden Valley is for sale, and it even comes with holiday lets and its own spa.

The four-bed house near Craswall is on the market for an eye-watering £1.8 million, and agents Strutt and Parker said there is tremendous potential, subject to necessary consent, to renovate and create additional dwellings from other outbuildings.

The agents said in the Zoopla listing that the current owners have created a “wonderfully private small estate”.

Talking about the main house, they said: “Expense has not been spared in creation of this stylish set up and the result is an excellent property full of original charm and character but with contemporary finishes and modern attributes.

“Sitting at the centre of the property, accessed by a private drive and large parking area, Upper House itself sits in an elevated position overlooking the barns and formal gardens affording panoramic vistas of rolling countryside as far as the eye can see.

“The interior is awash with pastel tones and exposed original beams marry with natural stone and oak floors, bespoke oak joinery, and a plush stylish finish throughout.

“The heart of the home is the open plan kitchen/breakfast room with bespoke kitchen units.

“The excellent drawing room with mezzanine library has real wow factor with full height ceiling, lots of natural light, flagstone floor and large log burning stove.

“Accessed via stone steps down to a lower ground floor is bedroom four, complete with en suite bathroom.”

They added: “A further three double bedrooms are also en suite and the continuation of style and well thought design and finish is found as much here as in the reception and shared spaces through the house.”

Also on the estate is a a beautifully renovated stone barn comprising of two “luxurious” holiday cottages, or annexes to the main house, echoing the “stylish and sophisticated finish” of Upper house.

The cottages, one of which has two bedrooms and the other has one, offer “excellent accommodation of contemporary design whilst retaining charm and character”.

“Both have benefit of log burners, well-appointed kitchens and bathrooms, bespoke oak joinery and natural stone floors,” agents added.

“The Long Barn boasts two en suite bedrooms, a mezzanine sitting room and an open plan kitchen/breakfast room.

“The Hayloft has kitchen/breakfast room, sitting room and master bedroom served by separate bathroom. The barn is surrounded by landscaped gardens and gravelled seating areas.”

There are also outbuildings on the 70-acre estate, including a spa building with shower room, relaxation room and sauna, summer house and various stone buildings.
