  • Bedrooms: 6
Beautifully situated, and forming part of this small rural village, Hills Farm enjoys extensive and far reaching views over farmland. It comprises a traditional farm house, which offers very comfortable and spacious living accommodation, together with two converted barns providing annexe or b&b accommodation, extensive parking and gardens, a modern steel framed portal building which provides excellent workshop and storage space and just over 10 acres of land.

Situation and Description

Once a working farm, the property is now a private residence and occupies a lovely elevated position with extensive south easterly views over rolling countryside. The small village of Leysters is made up of a number of properties with services available at the thriving and nearby market towns of Tenbury Wells, Leominster and Ludlow with a highly regarded primary school, just 3 miles away, at Kimbolton. More extensive facilities can be found at the cathedral city of Hereford, approximately 18 miles.

The main house offers very comfortable living accommodation, which is full of character and charm, and laid out over three floors. The current owners have sympathetically modernised and maintained the house which now benefits from oil fired and wood fired central heating, a modern fitted farmhouse kitchen, modern bathrooms and much more.

Although very much a family house, the current owners have also run a successful bed & breakfast business and have converted two original stone barns into three well-appointed rooms. These could provide annexe accommodation or are ideal for an extended family and are beautifully set in the grounds with ample parking and attractive gardens. The land overall extends to just over 10 acres

From the shared driveway, access can be gained to an extensive parking area which creates a courtyard to the front and side of the house. A front door leads into an enclosed entrance porch and a welcoming kitchen/breakfast room, which forms the main hub of the house, and has been recently tastefully refurbished and includes a Rangemaster cooker, an oil fired Rayburn and a door through to the rear gardens as well as a large walk-in pantry. An inner hallway provides access to a cellar and to a useful study/office which overlooks the gardens. There is a traditional sitting room with a stone fireplace and fitted wood burner and windows to the front and rear. To the other end of the property is a large dining room, providing space for guests if required and this also opens into a conservatory with an outlook over the gardens and distance farmland views. There is a further sitting room with free standing gas wood effect burner and stone brick hearth, door to gardens and open tread staircase to the first floor. The ground floor is also supported by a useful utility room and cloakroom. Two separate staircases provide access to the first floor. The master bedroom is an excellent size with a large en suite shower room, which has recently been updated. There is a large guest suite, with a dual aspect, and en suite bathroom, together with a family bathroom and a first-floor kitchen. A staircase leads to bedroom three which has far reaching views.

From the main landing a staircase leads to the second-floor landing with exposed timbering and doors to two good sized attic rooms/potential bedrooms both with rooflights, exposed timbering and access to roof storage.

The Fuggles and The Tallet

A short distance away from the property a stone barn has been converted to provide two guest rooms. On the ground floor is The Fuggles , which comprises a large bed/sitting room, separate breakfast area/hallway, with tiled floor and a separate shower room. Above this is The Tallet , which is approached by an external stone staircase and has the same accommodation as The Fuggles and again with extensive views.

Tigeen

A further detached barn has also been converted, Tigeen (meaning Little House in Ireland). This is a sweet little cottage with twin double-glazed doors to an entrance hall with a tiled floor and shower room. A staircase leads to the first floor living room/bedroom.

Outside

The gardens wrap around the house and cottages and are laid predominately to lawn with a mixture of mature trees and two good sized ponds. There are further outbuildings, which include a large steel framed barn, which offers scope for a variety of uses, (84ft x 24ft10).

The land is laid to pasture and enclosed by hedging and fencing and offers the opportunity for keeping a small head of stock or for equestrian use.
