Situation and Description The small village of Westhide lies in east Herefordshire and is set away from main roads and is one of a cluster of individual properties centred around a small church. Local services are available at the larger village of Withington and at the cathedral city of Hereford, which offers an extensive range of facilities, as well as road and rail links to other parts of the country.
The Old Post Office is a very pretty, Grade II Listed house which offers good sized three/four bedroom living accommodation laid out over two floors. It enjoys mains gas fired central heating and includes all fitted carpets, with attractive gardens to both the front and rear, adjoining stable block and separate paddock.
Initially approached from the village lane, a gated driveway leads up to a good-sized parking area with a porch leading to an entrance hall. From here doors provide access to a shower room/cloakroom and to the sitting room, which is full of character with a exposed timbering, fireplace with fitted wood burner and window overlooking the front garden. There is a separate dining room, with a dual aspect and a glazed door which provides easy access to a rear patio and the gardens. A door then leads through to an attractive kitchen/breakfast and a side hallway provides access to a useful utility room and to an adjoining garage and workshop area.
From the dining room a staircase leads to the first-floor landing and initially to two large bedrooms, both with a range of fitted wardrobes and attractive views over farmland. There is then a good-sized inner landing, which is partly sub divided and offers excellent study/dressing space and access to a third bedroom and to a family bathroom and occasional 4th bedroom.
From the driveway, double doors lead into a good-sized garage and workshop which is subdivided (15ft 5 x 12ft 7 and 10ft 7 x 13ft 9). The gardens lie to the front and rear and are an excellent size, laid predominately to lawn, with some mature trees all well-enclosed by mature hedging or fencing. A pathway leads through to an excellent stable block, on a concrete base with light and power. There are three stables, averaging 11ft 8 x 11ft 6, as well as a tack room 14ft 6 x 6ft. There is a separate enclosed area, with a small man-made pond to the front, ideal for chickens, ducks or out area, and then to the paddock with additional separate access from the lane. From here there is access to some excellent public and permissive bridleways and footpaths. Perfect for horse riding and dog walking!
