Forming part of Shucknall village, on the eastern side of the cathedral city of Hereford, a very spacious five-bedroom family house, set in large gardens – in need of some improvement but offering huge potential.
Set in 1.5 acres
34ft sitting room
South facing position
Three/four reception rooms
Offering further potential
The property lies in east Herefordshire and forms part of a cluster of individual properties which make up the small village of Shucknall. It enjoys a southerly aspect and local village services are available nearby at Withington, Newtown Cross and Bartestree. More extensive facilities are within easy reach at the cathedral city of Hereford (6 miles) with a large choice of shops, restaurants, leisure facilities and the advantage of a main line train station.
The Vineyard itself is an interesting property, that we understand was once a mill. It has been extended over the years to now offer large five/six bedroom living accommodation with the potential for a self-contained annexe if required. All of the principal rooms have a south facing aspect and the gardens and grounds form a particular feature and extend to approximately 1..4 acres. There are a number of garden stores and a detached double brick-built garage. In parts the house is now tired and would benefit from improvement. However, in our opinion, it offers larger than average living space, both inside and out, which would be ideal for a growing family.
Initially approached by a shared driveway, The Vineyard is then approached by its own drive which runs past the front of the house to a parking and turning area and the detached double garage.
A front door leads into a large entrance porch and door into a very spacious 34ft long sitting room with oak flooring, windows to the front and rear, fireplace at one end and fitted cupboards and central display case to the other. A further door from the entrance porch leads into the entrance hall/living room, with staircase to the first floor, a rear porch with cloakroom and shower room off, and benefits from oak flooring and a tiled fireplace and hearth. A door from here leads into a dining room or breakfast room with windows again on two sides, a door to a large under stairs storage cupboard and a door through to the kitchen/breakfast room with a window to the front, tiled floor, ample cupboard space and work surfaces, a fitted range style cooker and a dishwasher and fridge and freezer. From the entrance hall/living room a staircase leads to the first-floor landing and to a very useful walk-in airing cupboard. There are five excellent bedrooms on this floor, all with a south facing aspect, with bedroom four benefiting from a wash-hand basin. These are supported by a family bathroom with a separate shower cubicle.
Approached separately and adjoining one end of the house, is a single storey extension which provides an additional bedroom and bathroom and has ideal annexe potential or would make a great teenager’s suite.
The Vineyard stands in large gardens and grounds which extend to approximately 1.4 acres and are terraced and laid predominately to lawn with a variety of mature trees, providing considerable privacy. As mentioned there is a very useful double garage, with sliding door (17ft 5 x 17ft 5) and a former greenhouse, now in need of repair, as well as other outbuildings and a garden store (12ft x 9ft).
