Riversdale is a very attractive red brick Edwardian residence, built in 1904. The property has been in the same family for nearly 40 years, and offers a rare opportunity to buy a unique property. It is set in a conservation area on the banks of the River Arrow, in the heart of Eardisland, which is one of Herefordshireâ€™s most beautiful villages. The property includes a large 17th century Grade II listed half-timbered barn, a one-bedroomed cottage, a double garage block with a room above, all set in 3 acres of beautiful riverside gardens and grounds bordered by the River Arrow.
The living accommodation is laid out over two floors. There are two main reception rooms, three double bedrooms, a study (or bedroom 4) and two bathrooms. There is a wealth of original features such as oak flooring, original Victorian floor tiles, woodburners with original oak fireplace surrounds, original kitchen & bathroom tiles, picture rails, period wash hand basins and baths, and much more. All the rooms are light and airy, most with double aspects, and enjoy superb views over the river and gardens. In the last 15 years the present owner has carried out extensive updating of the main house including re-wiring, re-plumbing and installing a new central heating system, and it has recently been re-roofed.
The delightful holiday cottage was imaginatively converted in 2004 and generates a useful income stream.
The half-timbered barn is in sound condition. It was re-roofed in 1998 and other renovations have been carried out in recent years.
The gardens and grounds form a charming and delightful feature of this unique property.
Despite the proximity to the river there has been no incidence of flooding to the house or to any of the outbuildings.
The picturesque village of Eardisland is in northwest Herefordshire. It features on the Black and White Village Trail. It includes many historic buildings including a village church, two public houses, and a village shop. Further facilities are offered at the market towns of Leominster, Hereford and Ludlow.
