An imposing detached stone farmhouse occupying a fine rural location with spectacular views, adjoining self-contained cottage, range of traditional barns and standing in just under 5 acres.

This imposing detached farmhouse occupies an elevated location amidst unspoilt north Herefordshire countryside, with spectacular views, yet only a mile from the popular Market Town of Kington.

Rushock is a small hamlet and the nearest amenities are available in Kington itself where there is a range of educational, shopping and recreational amenities notably Kington Golf Club (believed to be the highest golf course in England) through which the historic Offa's Dyke path runs.

The property lies close to the mid Wales border and is also accessible to the Cathedral City of Hereford (20 miles) and the Market Towns of Leominster (15 miles) and Presteigne (6 miles). The property is constructed of stone and has hardwood double-glazing, electric heating and exceptionally spacious accommodation including large farmhouse-kitchen with Aga.

Adjoining the property is a self-contained 2 bedroom cottage, ideal for a relative or for additional income as a holiday let, etc.

In close proximity to the farmhouse there is a range of traditional stone barns, which formerly had planning consent (granted November 2006) for conversion into 3 dwellings (plans are available on the Herefordshire Council planning portal Application number DCN063066/F).

There is also a large steel-frame barn incorporating stabling, a carport, lawned garden and 2 separate paddocks, the whole extending to 4.85 acres.
