Space, style and splendour in abundance make this fantastic country pile an incredibly attractive prospect
Period features abound in Grove House, a magnificent Grade II-listed country abode located just outside the charming village of Bromsberrow Heath, near Ledbury in Herefordshire.
The sprawling eight-bedroom house, which dates back to the 14th century and has additions from the 15th and 18th centuries, is spread across three floors.
The reception hall, which has elegant limestone flooring and fine dog’s tooth cornicing, leads to a cloakroom and a gun room. Also on the ground floor is a drawing room, where oak panelling and ceiling-height windows with built-in seating draws the eye.
There’s more feature woodwork in the dining room, where oak floorboards are complemented by exposed beams, half-timbered walls and an inglenook fireplace. The sitting room, meanwhile, is a little less formal and includes stairs up to the large kitchen. This space has fully fitted units and is ideal for relaxed family mealtimes.
Elsewhere on the ground floor, there’s an en-suite bedroom with external access, along with a snooker room, a utility room, two gymnasiums and a shower room.
Back in the entrance hall, a regal staircase ascends to a galleried landing. There are three en-suite bedrooms on this level, one of which boasts its own dressing room. Upstairs again, the second floor is home to a further four bedrooms including one which benefits from en-suite facilities.
Set within 10-and-a-half acres of private grounds, Grove House has a range of outbuildings including two charming cottages. Grooms Cottage adjoins the main house and has a sitting room, bathroom and first floor bedroom. Forget Me Knot Cottage, meanwhile, is situated within a walled garden, and after a bit of TLC, could be transformed into a holiday let. It has one bedroom, a living room, shower room and a kitchen.
The property also has garages, a wood store and stables with tack room, plus a barn, which has been used as a wedding venue and has its own kitchen and cloakrooms.
Behind these buildings are paddocks and a very picturesque ornate pond. To the west of the house there are tiered lawns which lead to an all-weather tennis court.
Traditional features, a surplus of living space inside and out, plus a wide variety of additional buildings all combine to make Grove House ideal for families seeking a rural paradise to call their own.
