An absolutely superb city centre apartment, part of a beautifully converted Grade II* listed building with views towards Hereford Cathedral, over 2000 sq ft, with additional huge loft space. Communal gardens, wealth of character features. Car parking available by separate negotiation

DIRECTIONS

(on foot) From the Hereford office, walk along King Street, towards the cathedral. On entering the cathedral grounds follow the pathway signposted to the city centre and Church St and walk along Church St to the junction with East Street (one way traffic). The entrance to the building can be found after a short distance on the right hand side.

SITUATION

Located in the heart of the city with an extensive range of services and amenities close by, 102 East St, was the former Conservative Club for over 120 years. Prior to that, it was a school, and was originally constructed and altered during Victorian and Georgian times, with the earlier parts believed to date 50 years+ earlier and originally thought to have been built as 3 merchants houses with possibly a Meeting Hall to the rear section.

DESCRIPTION

This magnificent building now comprises 7 individual and completely unique residential apartments enjoying superb city and cathedral views. The property is grade II* listed and boasts a whole host of magnificent period features including original and extensive oak panelling to the 31 ft drawing room, a huge and intricately carved fireplace being the centrepiece of this room with Venus and possibly Bacchus, the main depictions. The elaborately decorated plaster ceiling with images of cherubs, dragons, vine leaves and roses is a fine example of the attention to details of the era; combine this with large west facing sash windows and the kitchen facing due south with windows directly overlooking adjoining gardens and the beautiful Hereford cathedral, all amount to what is a very very rare opportunity indeed to acquire a totally unique and special city centre residence, converted to the highest standards.

Cleverly and sympathetically restored and converted, the property combines its original splendour with modern day requirements including some classic design radiators and part underfloor heating, quality wool carpets, engineered oak floor, dimmable LED 5 amp lighting circuit in the drawing room, high spec and high gloss kitchen with fridge/freezer, dishwasher and Smeg electric double oven, gas hob and extractor. High quality acoustic and thermal insulation throughout with fire detection and alarm systems built in. Beautifully fitted luxurious bathrooms, a 'hidden' door to master bedroom suite disguised within the original oak panelling and the clever idea of a hinged stair banister rail to allow furniture to be moved in with ease.

The property also has a very large attic space with windows and ample headroom, ideal for storage.

Communal gardens with views directly towards the cathedral are situated to the rear of the property for all the residents to enjoy and car parking is available nearby by way of separate negotiation.
