Location

Situated in rural Herefordshire, Apple Barn enjoys a very convenient location in the hamlet of Stretton Grandison, approximately 10 miles east of the cathedral city of Hereford and 9 miles northwest of the market town of Ledbury, which offers a range of local facilities and amenities including shops, schools, churches, restaurants, theatre, doctors surgeries, community hospital and a mainline railway station, with direct links to Hereford, Worcester, Birmingham New Street and London Paddington. It is also accessible for Worcester, Gloucester and Cheltenham. The M50 motorway south of Ledbury and the M5 at Worcester provide excellent national communications.

Description

Believed to be nearly 300 years old, Apple Barn is pleasantly located forming part of an exclusive development of five dwellings converted in 2004. The barn has been sympathetically converted and boasts exposed beams throughout, which contrast beautifully against its modern interior. There are a number of noteworthy period features including striking vaulted ceilings and a lovingly preserved part exposed wattle and daub wall on the first floor. The barn has been designed in such a way as to make it feel separate from its adjoining neighbours with the thoughtful positioning of an open plan living/dining room, which acts as a hub at the heart of the house. The characterful accommodation is beautifully appointed and benefits from a number of contemporary features including hardwood double glazing, zonal underfloor heating to the ground floor and fibre optic broadband.

Flooded with natural light, the accommodation on the ground floor comprises an entrance hall, which gives access to a cloak/utility room, breakfast kitchen and in turn leads to an open plan living/dinning room. From here, doors lead to the sun room and to a second hall, off which there is a double bedroom and a staircase leading to a beautiful mezzanine landing. The first floor is approached by two separate staircases from the living/dining room, which lead to the master suite and guest bedroom. Both bedrooms have fitted wardrobes, en suite bath/shower rooms and enjoy far reaching views across open countryside.

A particular feature of the property is the garden, which has a delightful south facing aspect and is predominantly laid to lawn with mature shrub borders and an attractive sandstone patio providing an ideal seating area. The property further benefits from a driveway with parking for one vehicle and a double garage.

With so much to offer, the agents strongly recommend an internal inspection to appreciate this truly wonderful home.
