  • Bedrooms: 5
Location & description

Positioned on the western periphery of the well served village of Peterstow, some 3 miles west of Ross and the M50, The Forrester comprises a sympathetic and most appealing conversion of a group of former farm buildings.

Construction is of mellow stone and brickwork, the northern section of the l-shaped building being single storey under a double pitched and hipped, clay tiled roof, whilst the southern two storey section is of brick construction under a double pitched and hipped slate roof.

Internally, there is extensive evidence of exposed high roof timbering, areas of exposed brick and stone work and some outstanding Oak flooring. Textures, tones and materials throughout have been chosen very carefully to complement the nature and character of the property.

There is a magnificent 21’ Drawing Room with extensive glazing and direct access into the gardens, a wonderful 21’ Kitchen/Dining area, 18’ Music Room & Snug and two en-suite bedrooms to the ground floor. The first floor offers three bedrooms, one en-suite, and a family bathroom and W.C.

The property is bordered by farmland to the east, and there are some superb cameo views from first floor windows across open countryside towards Ross-on-Wye and beyond.

Lying to the west of the main block of accommodation is a huge gravelled courtyard/circulation area, whilst to the south of same is an open fronted double carport with outbuildings attached.

To the north of the courtyard is a versatile multi-functional building, currently comprising a double garage and workshop, but with possibilities for alternative use if required.

For those who like to walk to the pub, the well run Red Lion is within staggering distance, whilst just a little further away in the village centre is a shop/post office/off licence, village green, St Peters Church and Village Hall, and another excellent pub, The Yew Tree!. The location also has the merit of a regular Ross/Hereford/Gloucester bus service, accessible both in the village and at Everstone.

For those wanting good access to fast communications, the M50 motorway is accessible within 10 minutes drive, whilst Hereford, Monmouth, Abergavenny and Ledbury (for trains to London) are all within striking distance.
