‘Perfect’ Herefordshire village house

Great House in Herefordshire is a very fine village property dating from the 18th century and built of mellowed stone. Character features include exposed beams, sash double-glazed windows, stone floors, fireplaces and log burners.

Recently refurbished, the accommodation is comfortable and well-appointed; an important room is the farmhouse kitchen/breakfast room with oil-fired Aga and double Belfast sink. Reception rooms are attractive and comprise a sitting room and a drawing room; the bedrooms are spread over two floors upstairs and all have delightful views, while ample loft storage is accessed by a pull-down ladder.

An annexe on the ground floor comprises a sitting room, bedroom and shower room.

Great House is located in the Herefordshire village of Longtown, on the borders of Herefordshire and Monmouthshire in the lee of the Black Mountains. Avergavenney is nine miles and Hereford is 17 miles.
