Upon arriving at the home, you enter the generous hallway which has doors leading off to a reception room, kitchen and stairs to the first floor. To the left of the hall is a recently constructed reception room which could suit a multitude of uses. The room has an impressive, vaulted ceiling and enjoys views across the garden. With an en-suite WC, the room is an ideal space to work from home or use as an additional bedroom. The kitchen/breakfast room is well-appointed with a range of wall and base mounted, modern units with laminate worktop. There is an integrated dishwasher, plumbing for a washing machine and space for a fridge-freezer. The dining area enjoys glorious views across the garden and all the way towards the Malvern Hills. Large sliding doors lead out to a private patio area. From the kitchen a door leads to the ground floor wet room which has a WC, wash hand basin and shower. The large living room spans the width of the property and has a door leading out to the front of the home. The room has three windows, including a large bay overlooking the side of the home and stunning Magnolia tree. An attractive brick fireplace with stone hearth and inset wood burning stove provides a cosy focal point to the room.
To the first floor are four bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master bedroom has an excellent range of fitted bedroom furniture to include wardrobes with sliding doors, drawers and a dressing table. The further three bedrooms enjoy views over the gardens, village and countryside. The good-sized family bathroom is fully tiled and includes a bath, wash hand basin, WC and double shower. A ceiling hatch with ladder gives access to a generous sized loft which has been boarded, has power and lighting and two Velux windows.
Arriving at the property, a driveway which is enclosed by a five bar wooden gate leads you through the garden to a large garage with power and light. The font door to the home can be found off the lane, where a gate in the hedging leads you to the front door. The more frequently used entrance can be found from a short path leading from the driveway. The garden, which is approaching half an acre wraps around the home and enjoys magnificent views over the neighbouring farmland and all the way towards the Malvern Hills at the rear. The garden has been beautifully curated and includes a wonderful range of packed flower beds, shrubs and mature trees. Within the garden are productive pear and apple trees and a pond which attracts a large array of wildlife. The boundary is bordered with a mix of mature hedges and close board fencing. Within the garden are outbuildings including a small barn and a large shed which has power and lighting.
Kempley is a parish and village in the Forest of Dean district of Gloucestershire, close to the border with Herefordshire. It lies 17 miles (27km) northwest of Gloucester and 17 (27km) miles southeast of Hereford. The nearest market towns of Newent and Ross-on-Wye are 4.7 and 6.3 miles (7.6 and 10.1 km) respectively.
The village maintains the Kempley Tardis (a redundant telephone box) - a National Lottery funded project supported by English Heritage. The project, which is run by the Friends of Kempley Churches, aims to archive and document the entire social, economic and cultural history of the village. The small parish has two notable churches, one dedicated to St Mary and another to St Edward the Confessor. The area around Kempley and Dymock is renowned for its wild daffodils and the local parishes arrange walking tours of the daffodil fields during March each year.
