The Sherriffs is a late Georgian property, listed Grade II, with a mellow brick façade typical of the period. The house has accommodation over three stories, and has been refurbished in recent years to provide extensive, well-proportioned rooms and a fine period staircase.

The drawing room and sitting room have excellent examples of open fireplaces and shuttered windows with window seats, while the hall and both adjoining reception rooms benefit from period oak floorboards. The inner hall leads to the cellar and cloakroom and the living room has a very large inglenook fireplace in dressed stone. A large garden hall has French windows leading outside.

Upstairs the master bedroom faces east and has built in cupboards an en-suite bathroom, while two further double bedrooms stretch across the front of the property. A secondary landing, served by a secondary staircase, serves the north-east wing which has two large bedrooms, both with en-suite bathrooms. The second floor landing leads to the sixth bedroom, also en-suite; two further bedrooms occupy this floor.

Outside, the gardens and grounds are an attractive feature of the property. The large lawn to the front includes the former croquet lawn and a gazebo. To the east is the sunken garden with central pond, and beyond here is an area of natural woodland and a further area which could very easily become paddocks. The whole property extends to over eight acres.

The Sherriffs occupies a delightful rural setting amidst some of Herefordshire’s most beautiful countryside, around two miles from the village of Lyonshall, which itself is four miles from Pembridge. Hereford is 19 miles.

The guide price is £950,000. For further information please contact Knight Frank on 01432 273 087 or visit www.knightfrank.co.uk.
