Central village building plot with permission for a fine individual detached 5 bedroom dwelling


Yarpole is a thriving community located in beautiful North Herefordshire countryside. The village features an active church with community shop and cafe, together with a church hall. The Bell Inn is located adjacent to the building plot and has recently reopened as a community owned pub. Whilst the village has its own facilities, there are more extensive shopping and leisure facilities to be found in Ludlow and Leominster, both of which also have railway stations. The cathedral City of Hereford is located 18 miles away to the south and to the east lies the City of Worcester providing access to the M5. There is a wide selection of schools in the locality to suit all abilities, both state and private.


This attractive, level building plot lies adjacent to Maunds House at the centre of the popular village of Yarpole. The plot is bordered to the north and east by open fields together with established hedgerows and mature trees. Access to the plot will be from Green Lane, passing over the driveway retained by Maunds House leading to the building plot beyond.

The proposed dwelling is a fine individual detached property, with rendered elevations under a slate tiled roof and timber windows. A feature of the front elevation is the timber detailing to the porch which leads through to the entrance hall.

The ground floor accommodation is well arranged with a large drawing room, separate dining room and an impressive open plan kitchen dining sitting room, ideal for modern living.

To the first floor 5 bedrooms are specified, three of which are en-suite with a bathroom completing the accommodation.

Off the driveway to the left hand side is specified a detached garage building featuring a double garage and garden store, with external staircase rising to a loft with dormer windows and Velux windows, ideally suiting a games room or home office.

The accommodation in all extends to 3,195 sq ft divided between the buildings as 2,388 sq ft in the main house and 807 sq ft in the garage building.

Grounds and gardens

Whilst the plot is located in the centre of the village, it enjoys a semi-rural location with an outlook onto neighbouring fields. The site is broadly level with the rear garden having scope to be landscaped as required and gently sloping down towards the hedgerow boundary. Mature oak trees provide a fine backdrop in neighbouring properties. In all the land extends to approximately 0.5 acres (0.2 ha).
