Malvern Road, Stanford Bishop, Herefordshire

Guide price

Bedrooms: 4
A stunning former Rectory set in a rural location between Malvern and Bromyard, set in around 1.3 acres of gardens and with a detached two storey former coach house that has potential to convert into accommodation. The property retains much of it's original character, and would benefit from some further updating. The versatile accommodation comprises: porch, hallway, drawing room, dining room, music room, dining kitchen, utility room and cloakroom, study, four double bedrooms and a further study/bedroom five, family bathroom, en-suite shower room to the main bedroom and extensive loft room that also has further potential. The level gardens surround the property being mainly lawn with mature trees, with hedgerows for privacy and fine views over surrounding countryside to the Malvern Hills in the distance. A fine and much loved family home with no onward chain that we highly recommend viewing.


The Old Rectory is situated on the Bromyard Road and is 3 miles from the main Worcester/Hereford Road. It is therefore well placed for easy commuting distance of Bromyard, The Malverns, Ledbury and the cities of Hereford and Worcester. The village of Cradley is approximately 4 miles distant and offers a Village hall, general store, primary school and doctor's surgery.
