A handsome Georgian property near Hereford with outbuildings and over 40 acres of land that is bursting with potential

The Valletts is a beautifully raw property with the potential – and space — to transform it into something incredibly special.

Tall, red and Georgian, four-bedroom The Valletts peers out over 41 ancient acres of pasture and mature woodland at Ruckhall, a sought-after village not too far from Clehonger and Hereford.

Currently on the market via Grant & Co for £1.395 million, the handsome property has many period features that add to its charm, including floor to ceiling sash windows, comically- wonky wooden floorboards and a magnificent ornate fireplace with a wood burning stove in the sitting room.

The interiors are charmingly French-farmhouse rustic, but some updating is probably needed.
