Grade Two listed, Six bedroom, detached property set within approximately 2.45 acres (including 1.25 acres of paddock) in the highly sought after village of Goodrich.

About:

Nestled in the idyllic border village of Goodrich sits this impressive period property.
Spacious and characterful, the Old Court House enjoys a variety of far-reaching views from its six bedrooms and its impressive south-west facing grounds. Following substantial and sympathetic restoration by its current owners, the Grade II Listed home combines comfortable modern family living with a multitude of historical features.

History:

An original timber-framed frontage is the first of many charming, historical features to be noticed when visiting this special property. Along with flagstones, fireplaces, beams, secondary glazed lead windows, a butler's pantry and much more, there are unique nods throughout the home to the Old Court House's 15th Century origins. Following extensive research, much history on the home is available via the local archaeological society.

Ground Floor
Stone steps lead from the sweeping driveway to the front door and porch. A spacious kitchen inhabits the oldest wing of the property, with an electric aga housed in a large feature fireplace immediately drawing the eye. A good-sized island unit includes built-in fridge, electric oven and microwave. A generous larder adjoins the room, and beyond the kitchen two utility rooms give ample storage and space for further appliances and a large steel safe, as well as access outside and downstairs to the sizeable, dry cellar.
On down the flagstone hallway, a large dining room benefits from lots of natural light, and a spacious living room looks out onto the garden and paddock, and further towards the Doward woodlands and hills. The room includes a log burner, and leads on to a further snug/ sitting room which enjoys a second log burner, and is currently also used as a comfortable home office. There is also access out onto the small croquet lawn here. A WC with sky light and a butler's pantry complete the ground floor.

First Floor
A large family bathroom sits at the top of the main staircase and includes a three-piece suite with handheld shower over the bath. Uninterrupted views to famous Symonds Yat Rock command the eye from the generous master bedroom, as well as taking in the large lawn below and adjoining barn.
A Jack and Jill en-suite enjoys a bath and large shower, and is accessible to bedrooms 1 and 3.
Bedrooms 2,3 and 4 lie along the landing, with bedroom 2 currently set up as a second home office space. Storage space is plentiful on the first floor, with built-in wardrobes in second and fourth bedrooms, a spacious airing cupboard and a full-width loft with ladder access. Two further rooms sit beyond in the older wing of the home, with the last being the only single-sized room. A second flight of stairs can be found at the end of the landing, which leads back to the kitchen.

Outside:

The charm of the Old Court House is only emphasised outside, with large, attractive grounds to be enjoyed all year-round. Carefully tended and extensively renovated, the garden now includes a traditional-style greenhouse, a vegetable garden with raised beds and several fruit trees, all protected by rabbit fencing.
With well-maintained grounds wrapping around three sides of this impressive home, there are plenty more areas to discover, including potted o courtyards, a pergola and seating area, a potting shed, log store, and historic features dotted throughout, including planted troughs, a feature sundial and even a cider mill.

Attached to the corner of the south west aspect of the home is an impressive two-storey barn bursting with potential. The barn has been recently re-roofed, and enjoys electricity and lighting as well as a new secure door.

Beyond the walled vegetable garden and attractive greenhouse lies a plentiful paddock, contained by post and rail fencing and a stone wall. The paddock has a three-stalled shelter with electricity, as well as a further fenced cider apple orchard.

The entire grounds, including the stables, are serviced by an underground rainwater pumping system.

A large sweeping gravel drive to the front of the home has room for up to 10 cars in front of a private beech hedge, and a stone-clad garage is also available.
