Meyrick House
Panoramic views of beautiful countryside and rolling hills are magnificently exhibited from every room in this impressive low-carbon-footprint eco-home. The high-specification, four-bedroom country house is set within a highly sought-after village and boasts a beautifully bright open-plan living arrangement plus a magnificent outdoor entertaining space.


The village of Goodrich sits at the centre of the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, lying beneath Coppett Hill, a peak that offers good walks and a splendid view of the River Wye.
Goodrich boasts two excellent pubs, The Hostelerie, an impressive 18th-century gothic-style inn, offering accommodation, plus a reputable restaurant and bar. There is also The Cross Keys, a welcoming family-run former coaching inn that consistently garners rave reviews online. In addition, Goodrich Village Hall is a fantastic community venue that frequently hosts various fitness classes, music nights and also operates as a pop-up cinema. There is also an extremely well-regarded primary school in the village which has a 'Good' Ofsted score, a centrally located church, a tennis club and a cricket club, which is across the lane from Meyrick House.
Goodrich sits around five miles in either direction between the popular market towns of Monmouth and Ross-on-Wye, both of which feature good comprehensive schools as well as independent shops, cafes and restaurants. Monmouth also has the prestigious Haberdashers private school.

Arguably, the village is most well-known for its commanding 11th Century hill-castle which stands on the northern fringe of the village beside the river Wye. This fortress features the 'Roaring Meg' – the largest and only surviving Civil War mortar, which was cast in 1646 for the castle's siege. During most of the year this historic red sandstone monument is clearly visible from Meyrick House.

The home at a glance

This stone and timber-clad property was constructed to exacting standards in 2019, in the style of a contemporary converted barn. Native hedging flanks the grounds and this, plus an electronic double gate, gives excellent privacy. The design has great attention to detail with external solar blinds to the south-facing elevations and Internorm tripled glazed windows throughout. The mvhr (Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery) system provides fresh filtered air into the building whilst retaining most of the energy that has already been used in heating, the building is therefore extremely energy efficient.
A high-quality Hormann composite front door leads into a bright and airy reception hall, which carries a Mandarin Stone porcelain floor and sets the scene for the stylish and elegant residence.
Straight ahead, two sets of sliding pocket frosted glass doors lead to the heart of the home - a spacious open-plan living arrangement comprising a kitchen, dining room and lounge. This is presented in a timelessly handsome neutral colour palette, which accentuates the boundless country view; with acres of farmland rolling downhill towards the Wye Valley and the gentle peaks of Coppett Hill and Chase Woods nearby. The majestic Malvern Hills stand in the far distance.
In terms of practicalities, the kitchen is well-equipped with a plethora of integrated appliances, including a Neff fan oven with a plate warmer, a Neff microwave, a Neff induction hob with an angled extractor fan, a Neff full-height fridge, a Neff dishwasher and a wine cooler. Grey high gloss and wood-effect units are adorned with marble worktops and a central island offers an informal eating area.
The next area of this room presently serves as a formal dining room There is a Fireline log burning stove - a staple of country life - housed within this space. Meanwhile, the sitting room includes the TV and internet points. A series of large triple-glazed sliding glass doors and full-height windows to two aspects are framed by remote-controlled blinds. These lead outside to a generous L-shaped patio, which has an inset fish pond. A remote-controlled awning is positioned over the outdoor living space and the far corner of the patio lends itself perfectly to a tranquil alfresco dining space. From all parts of the patio spectacular rural views can be enjoyed.
The ground floor of the property includes the generous master suite, which features a built-in wardrobe across one side of the room, plus a fully tiled en-suite shower room with a walk-in dual-headed shower, a wall hung wash-hand basin, WC a wall mounted cupboard unit and a heated towel rail. A window in the bedroom showcases the pristine side garden.
The ground floor also includes a study which overlooks a vista of mature trees and the front garden, a cloakroom, a sizeable built-in cupboard with a sliding doors, and a utility room. The latter includes space and plumbing for a washing machine, room for a condenser tumble dryer, plenty of base-and-wall-mounted units, a sink with mixer taps and a cupboard which houses the Viessman lpg boiler, the water tank and the solar boost.

An open design oak staircase, complete with a glass balustrade and LED lighting, leads from the reception hall to a light-streamed galleried engineered oak floor landing. This gives access to three further bedrooms, plus the elegant family bathroom which is fully tiled and carries a slipper bath, a walk-in dual-headed shower, a wall-hung wash hand basin, WC, wall mounted cupboard unit, a heated towel rail and a Velux window. Of the bedrooms, all three contain Velux windows which let a wealth of natural light cascade into each space. The two largest rooms - positioned on each end of the galleried landing - both enjoy two aspects; one looks towards the black mountains of South Wales, whereas the other, which also includes a dressing room - showcases the side garden and wooded hills of Coppett Hill and views to Ross-on-Wye and beyond.

Outside, a level lawn encircles the property, and every corner of the garden has been beautifully landscaped. There is scope to grow fresh produce as there are raised beds, as well as pear, cherry, plum and apple trees within the grounds. The lpg storage tank is discreetly buried within the lawn.
