Features and description

  • Freehold
Built in 1974, Turnpike House comprises a fantastic four-bedroom house of over 2,150 sq ft and a two-storey coach house which sits opposite. The house has exceptionally well-retained characterising features – exposed red-brickwork, an original open-tread staircase and timber-framed glass doors leading out to the surrounding gardens. Located in The Marches, within the borderlands of England and Wales, Turnpike House is surrounded by beautiful open countryside and lies within easy reach of many charming Herefordshire towns.

Both Turnpike House and the coach house are accessed via a private driveway, with off-street parking available for several vehicles. There are two entrances – one at the front of the house and the second, most commonly used, positioned on the westerly side beneath a brick porchway.

A wonderful flow of open-plan living spaces span the ground floor, with exposed red-brick walls and columns providing neat divisions. A workshop, or studio, is set to one side of the light-filled hallway, leading through to a large utility space and a bright kitchen; a separate pantry is positioned adjacent. Expansive windows invite good levels of natural light across the dining area, with glazed timber-framed doors providing direct access out to the garden.

The ground floor is awash with original features. An original open-tread staircase folds through the central plan, open bookshelves stretch from floor to ceiling and slim timber floorboards run underfoot. The living room is a quiet room with a corner wall of floor-to-ceiling glazing inviting abundant light.

Four beautifully proportioned bedrooms and the family bathroom span the first floor, each with a good provision of bespoke cabinetry and storage areas. Externally, gardens wrap the house with mature hedging, bamboo screens and specimen trees offering privacy.

The coach house is positioned adjacent to the main house, with an additional 740 sq ft across two storeys. Currently set out as a workshop, the space offers good opportunity for further renovation.

Leominster is a characterful and historic market town dating back to the seventh century, characterised by its black and white timber buildings. The town centre has broad selection of daily amenities, cafes and antique shops, with a wider selection in Hereford which is reachable in around 20 minutes by car.

Ludlow is approximately 15 minutes’ drive away and has a great offering of independent cafes and restaurants, with Hay on Wye, a revered town on the River Wye famed for its many bookshops and revered literary event, also within easy reach.

Nearby Presteigne is a charming town with an excellent fishmonger, greengrocer, butcher and delicatessen offering artisan bread on Saturdays. There is also a good selection of book shops, a library, leisure centre, bank and a good selection of pubs.

Leominster train station is a 15-minute walk from the house and Hereford train station lies just over 14 miles south, providing services to London in approximately two and a half hours and services to Bristol in around one hour and 40 minutes.
