Situation and Description

The small hamlet of Kenchester is made up of a cluster of individual properties, which lie on a no-through road, on the western side of the Hereford. Although quietly situated and set away from main roads it offers incredibly easy access to the city and all it has to offer. There are an excellent range of local facilities at the nearby village of Credenhill and some wonderful walks right on the doorstep.

Bridge House itself is a very attractive Grade II listed house which faces due south and stands in large gardens. Full of period features throughout, the house has been extensively and beautifully renovated by the current owner who has been sympathetic to the original house whilst managing to create a far more contemporary feel. The house is full of light and there is plenty of space with the living accommodation laid out over three floors. Outside the gardens have also been greatly improved and opened up and the addition of a triple garage has added practicality and plenty of storage.

On arrival a porch and front door lead into a spacious sitting room with modern flagged floor impressive stone fireplace, wall lighting and window overlooking the gardens. A good-sized snug also has lovely period fireplace with fitted wood burner, ideal for winter evenings. This has an adjoining study which creates a quiet place to work away from the main hub of the house. The Kitchen/Breakfast room is without a doubt one of the main features, formerly two rooms it now offers plenty of light and space with windows and doors providing direct access to the gardens. Almost 32 long it creates a fantastic place for the family to gather and has a modern flag stoned floor and completely new fitted kitchen with Quartz working surfaces, deep fill sink an array of white goods and range style cooker. This is supported by a good-sized laundry room and separate shower room.

On the first floor there are two very comfortable double bedrooms each with their own particular charm. There is a beautifully appointed en suite shower room to the main bedroom as well as a family bathroom. A staircase then continues to a second-floor landing and two further double bedrooms which are beautifully presented, and each have their own character, with vaulted ceilings and elevated views over the surrounding countryside. These rooms also have a separate WC and wash hand basin.


Bridge House is approached from a council maintained no through road by its own private in/out driveway. This provides extensive parking space and also provides access to a recently constructed triple garage block which includes 2 open bays.

The gardens form a particular feature and extend to approximately 1 acre. They have been hugely improved and opened up and now have a large and extensive lawned area edged and interspersed with a large variety of trees and shrubs. The south facing position creates a natural suntrap at the front of the house and there is plenty of space to create a kitchen garden if required. The gardens are also very private with open views over farmland to the south-east. To the rear of the house there is a small ornamental pond and further shrubs and plants as well as a useful garden store. The gardens are enclosed by stone walling and fencing and the pretty Yazor Brook runs along part of the northern boundary.

Agents Note: There is a derelict former Mill within the grounds, which could potentially provide ancillary accommodation, if required.
