Middleton on the Hill, Herefordshire
Views to rear
Mature, spacious complex
This pretty, stone-fronted barn is situated on the edge of the prestigious Nurton Court complex in Middleton on the Hill. The property’s corner plot is afforded its own secluded driveway with one other neighbour and the private rear garden backs on to superb, open views across the Herefordshire countryside.
The barn has a traditional layout with three principal rooms on the ground floor. The separate sitting room has good, square proportions and is flooded with light, benefitting from windows on two aspects. A brick fireplace and feature wood burning stove provide character and a cosy atmosphere.
The spacious dining room sits to the other side of the property and would be perfect to host the whole family for dinners and get-togethers. From here, an attractive timber staircase leads to the first floor.
The traditional style kitchen/ breakfast room provides that space we all long for: a homely retreat to enjoy a cup of coffee at your kitchen table after a long morning in the garden or after an invigorating countryside walk. There is plenty of storage in the various cabinets, a countertop hob with attractive feature extractor and a waist-height oven.
The kitchen accesses a separate utility room as well as the ground floor shower room. A further hallway lies to the other side of the kitchen with doors to both the side and rear of the property and provides a useful space to hang coats and kick off your muddy boots. A pretty stable door opens out to the rear garden.
Upstairs, there are three bedrooms: a master, with an en suite shower room, and two further bedrooms: all with exposed, character timber trusses. A bright, central family bathroom completes the upstairs accommodation.
Outside: A set of steps leads up the property’s side entrance and gives a glimpse of the garden over a pretty wooden gate. A patio area sits directly to the rear of the barn and backs on to the rest of the garden, which is level and laid to lawn with mature borders on both sides, filled with flowers and shrubs. A paved path leads to the back of the garden, which is fenced with timber rails and has an access gate; from here the garden takes in lovely countryside views across open fields. The rear of the plot has a separate driveway, leading to a garage with side doorway. Additional parking sits to the side of the property.
Area: Middleton on the Hill is a pretty area in the heart of rolling Herefordshire countryside and is convenient to the market towns of Tenbury Wells and Leominster – both have a good choice of shops, cafés and restaurants as well as transport links and medical services. There are great walks on your doorstep as well as the nearby National Trust Berrington Hall.
