WITH prices hitting up to £10 million, here are the five most expensive properties on the market in Herefordshire now.

Currently on the market for a whopping £10 million, property hunters will need deep pockets to purchase Almeley's Newport House, the most expensive Herefordshire property listed for sale on Rightmove at present.

Boasting nine bedrooms in the main house, with stables, cottages and farmhouses and stunning parkland and woodland, the Grade II listed Newport House has been painstakingly restored to its former glory over the past 16 years by its current owners.

Ledbury Reporter:

The main house sits in the heart of a 427 acre estate about a mile from Almeley.

The estate has history dating back to medieval times, but the current Newport House was built by Lord Foley of Witley Court after he purchased and tore down the original medieval house in 1712, with the build completed in around 1718.

It remained in the Foley family until 1863, before being sold on to James Watt Gibbs, and later other owners.

In 1919, Newport House was bought by the council and converted into a TB hospital, later becoming a home for Latvians after the Second World War.

For those looking to part with considerably less cash, the Wye Lea Estate in Bridstow is second on the list, on the market for £2.85 million.

Described as a 'unique country estate' by marketing agents John Goodwin of Ledbury, Wye Lea features a mile-long fishery alongside a three bedroomed property with an adjoining two bed annexe, two bed lodge and a complex of seven individual cottages in around 11 acres.

The third on the list is one for the keen property developer, with 12.7 acres of land for sale at Peterchurch for offers over £2.75 million.

The infill plot comes with outline planning permission for up to 89 houses and is described as having good vehicle and pedestrian access to the Golden Valley village.

Number four is The Old Vicarage in Bridstow. Priced at £2.45 million, the Georgian country house has been 'exquisitely refurbished,' according to Morris Bricknell Chartered Surveyors.

Most of the Grade II listed house is believed to date back to around 1746, and was later extended, probably by the Reverend Thomas Lewis, one of the founding members of the Woolhope Club.

Set in around seven acres, the property includes stables, a coach house, a part walled garden and plenty of land for equestrians.

In at number five is Hall Court in Kynaston, which is on the market for £2.2 million.

With parts of the property dating back to the early 1600s, Hall Court boasts a wealth of period features, including wainscotting, exposed beams, and large open fires, according to agent Andrew Grant Country Homes.

The Grade II listed eight bedroom home was built to replace an earlier dwelling by John Coke, and once had a moat, now buried in nearby fields.

Set in 89 acres of countryside, the property includes extensive equestrian facilities, hop kilns, and additional farm buildings.
