Believed to date back to the 17th century, Woodmans is a striking detached Grade II Listed country house which has been extended by the current owners in both the early 1980's and 1990's to create the family home that it is today. Stepped in history, the house has a wealth of period features including a half timbered and rendered facade, exposed ceiling and wall beams throughout and a number of original leaded windows with ornate monkey tail handles and openings. The accommodation on the ground floor boasts an impressive drawing room with a dining area, which enjoys a view across the grounds from every aspect. The drawing room opens into the sun room, which forms part of one of the extensions and benefits from newly painted wooden double glazed windows and patio doors. There is also a study with a separate cloakroom and a snug, which serves as a cosy evening room with a distinctive fireplace and inset wood burning stove. Both of these rooms lead into the breakfast kitchen, which also benefits from having been extended and provides ample space with further potential. A staircase with wooden balustrades leads to the first floor giving access to four bedrooms (two with en suites) and a family bathroom.
One of the great strengths of Woodmans is its wonderful setting enjoying an edge of village location surrounded by the beautiful Herefordshire countryside with far reaching views toward the Malvern Hills. The grounds of Woodmans extend to approximately three acres comprising manicured lawns with areas of natural wild garden and fine mature trees. The house sits almost within the middle of the grounds and has been designed to make the most of its position with a number of strategically placed seating areas to follow the sun as it moves around. For those who enjoy outdoor pursuits there is also a tennis court.
The rooms with approximate dimensions are as follows:
