Location

Trebandy House occupies a peaceful location at the termination of a half mile tarmacadam approach lane some 8 miles south west of the market and tourist town of Ross-on-Wye and some 7 miles north east of the historic town of Monmouth. Despite this tranquil location, one is within literally minutes’ drive of the A40 dual carriageway which runs between these two towns, and from the A40 one has first class access to the whole of the motorway network.

Listing and History

Trebandy House comprises a Listed Grade II Country House which is believed to date back to the early 17th Century with 19th Century additions and alterations. The house is of primarily sandstone construction, rendered and white painted under a double pitched and hipped, Welsh slate roof. The principal elevation is to the sunny south, whilst the oldest section faces west, and has a delightful outlook across the full width flagstone sun terrace then downwards and across the meandering River Garron.

Desciription

The House displays many appealing architectural features including shuttered sash windows, fireplaces, ceiling roses, picture rails and stone mullioned windows. Certain rooms have exposed ceiling beams, and in the snug there is some fine wooden panelling.

A generous 12’ enclosed porch opens into the 20’ reception Hall from which rises the elegant cantilevered staircase. From here, one has access to the three principal reception rooms, the 19’ drawing room with fireplace having open aspects to both east and south elevations. There is an 18’ farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room with extensive domestic offices adjacent. The first floor comprises four bedrooms and two bathrooms (one en-suite) whilst the second floor offers 21’ hobbies room/study, with two bedrooms and bathroom off. The Lower Ground Floor, which may be accessed from the main reception hall or alternatively from the flagstone sun terrace to the west, includes a reception Hall, two further rooms currently used as offices, whilst adjacent is a bathroom and W.C. And store room.

The accommodation in total extends to over 5000sq.ft.

Garden, Grounds & Outbuildings

The final approach to the house is across a cattle grid which extends between two substantial stone pillars, the 12’ gate opening onto a gravel drive which extends for some 300’ down towards the house, having magnificent mature trees and lawn to the south of the drive. This approach creates a wonderful parkland feel, the drive terminating in a large gravelled courtyard area to the east of the house, adjacent to which is the Four-Bay Carport/Garage Area. To the south of the domestic garden a large area of pasture slopes gently down towards the River Garron, whilst to the west of the flagstone sun terrace, a series of steps and terraces lead down to the area of shrubs and trees adjacent the river.

Former Coach House

Immediately after entering the grounds, there is a Stone Built Former Coach House on the right, planning permission having been formerly granted for the conversion of same into a dwelling. Although this permission has now expired, it is anticipated that such a consent is likely to be granted in the future if required (Herefordshire Council . Plans for same are available for inspection at the agents office if required .

Exquisite bespoke greenhouse/vegetable section

Immediately adjacent to the former Coach House is a 60’ x 30’ vegetable section, comprising several raised beds with attractive brick paving surrounding the raised growing areas. To the southern extent of this area is the exceptional 19’ greenhouse, constructed on a most attractive brick base over which is the dark green, powder coated, aluminium, period style greenhouse. This has internal heating, screening roller blinds, openable roof lights and two cold water taps, in addition to the further taps around the veg section.

Tennis Court

Lying to the south of the approach drive is the Tennis Court which is principally surrounded by tall, dark green fencing, overall max. Dimensions of same being approx. 120’ x 60’.

South Facing Vineyard

The gently sloping vineyard has three rows of vines, each approximately 120’ long and being exclusively white grapes, species including xx and xx. Adjacent to the vineyard is a former chicken run, now overgrown.

Poplar Plantation

Extending southwards from the vineyard is the Poplar Plantation which extends down to the banks of the River Garron. Overall size of the plantation approx. 450’ x 210’.

Gentle Sloping Paddock

Hedging and a stone wall delineate the front lawn of the house from the paddock and pastureland which extends from the domestic garden down towards the River Garron. The principal south facing rooms of the house thus look across the front garden and this lovely, south facing paddock.
