Many original details of this historic property have been lovingly retained, whilst updating works have been carried out throughout the years to create a characterful yet spacious family home at the heart of the City. 

Hereford’s iconic Cathedral looms across the front aspect and is viewable from several points in the home from large windows that take full advantage.

A stunning solid wood spiral staircase connects all four floors together harmoniously, including the original barrel vaulted cellar.
