Hunters Lodge is situated in a quiet location enjoying commanding and unspoilt views over the Wye Valley. The property dates back 200 years ago and was once a cider farm. The interesting south and east elevations have full height bay windows under a slate roof. The owners purchased the property in 2003 looking for north light as they were painters as well as a south view. It was modernised by installing double glazed windows throughout, stripping the pine floorboards, replacing bathrooms, installing an oak kitchen, electric Aga and slate floors throughout kitchen area. Elsewhere, there are slate, walnut and pine floors. Simple ceiling cornices have been retained and stone fireplaces were reopened and log burning stoves installed. The rooms have comfortable ceiling heights and the atmosphere is warm and friendly. The views from all the principal rooms are outstanding looking down an unspoilt valley, whilst the rear view is over its mixed orchard.The excellent lower ground floor is divided into three good rooms currently used as storage and workshops with full height windows, central heating and a door opening outside to the driveway.The ground floor consists of the kitchen, drawing room with walnut floor, library and bedroom 5 with an en-suite bathroom.The first floor accommodation is extremely adaptable. There are currently three bedrooms off the landing with the principal bedroom and bedroom 2 linking with a Jack and Jill bathroom. These rooms have wonderful views down the valley and could create a spacious suite with bedroom 2 being a large dressing room.To the west on the first floor, there is a self contained flat (House Martins) which is accessed from either the first floor landing or via a secondary staircase. This area includes a bathroom, kitchen and bed sitting room marked as bed 4 on the floor plans and kitchen which could be converted back to a further bedroom.The current owners also built a self contained wing which could easily be incorporated into the main house if required with a pair of interconnecting doors from bedroom 5 leading to a large open plan kitchen/sitting/dining room. The staircase leads to the first floor with a bedroom and bathroom.From a distance the Scotch Pines frame Hunters lodge majestically.
