Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Upper House Farm is a very attractive, Grade II listed farmhouse and detached converted Granary in an elevated position with far reaching views over some of Herefordshire's prettiest countryside.

The house has 17th century origins although it was substantially altered in 19th century. It is built of local coursed rubble stone under a slate roof with a former unconverted Cider house attached to the east end offering further space which could be incorporated into the house.
The accommodation is arranged over three storeys plus a cellar and has flag stone floors, chamfered ceiling timbers, Oak and Elm floorboards, large open fireplaces and sash windows.
At the rear of the house a converted two storey stone Granary provides spacious ancillary accommodation.
A large 18th century, Grade II Listed stone barn, partly timber framed with pegged stone roof tiles also has potential for conversion, subject to consents. Behind the barn and not visible from the house is a modern steel framed barn.
The gardens at the front of the house enjoy spectacular views. There is is a stone garden pavilion, a small orchard and a vegetable garden with greenhouse.
The holding amounts to just over 178 acres of pasture and woodland. The pasture is currently let on annual grazing licences. Vacant possession is available.

Situated in west Herefordshire, in the renowned Golden Valley with idyllic countryside, Neolithic monuments, ancient churches and ruined castles, this place is as beautiful as it is wild and untamed. The name is a little misleading as in fact it is carved between two river valleys, the Dore and The Monnow, and the Black Mountains. This makes for many highs and lows, from the thrilling peaks of the Cat's Back, Black Hill and Moccas Wood to the mosaic of rolling hills and patchworked fields.
Surrounded by some of the Marches' most beautiful countryside, Upper House Farm is located in the small rural community of Bacton, close to the Black Mountains and Offa's Dyke. The nearby villages of Longtown, Ewyas Harold and Peterchurch offer a good range of day-to-day amenities including village shops, public houses, GP surgeries and popular primary schools.
The towns of Hay-on-Wye and Abergavenny offer more comprehensive amenities. Hereford has high street stores such as Waitrose together with independent cafes and restaurants, a good range of services including leisure centre and pool, a hospital, cinema and museums. and is the social, economic and cultural hub of the county.
The area offers a good selection of state schooling including Ewyas Harold Primary School and Kingstone and Fairfield High Schools together with a wide range of noted independent schools including Hereford Cathedral School and Haberdashers Monmouth.
