  • Bedrooms: 3
Location & description

Old High Town comprises a small conservation scheme of just 15 properties lying on the western outskirts of the sought after village of Peterstow, some 3 miles west of Ross-on-Wye and the M50 motorway.

Originally comprising an old stone and half timbered farmhouse and outbuildings, initial conversion of the 15 dwellings took place in the late 1970’s by a small local developer. The current owners of Number 5 have recently substantially extended and beautifully refurbished the property, and one really needs to inspect the property thoroughly in order to gain a true measure of the accommodation. The whole of the dining room and kitchen is laid with exquisite Travertine flooring, and the kitchen is well equipped with appliances. The second reception room has large windows to both front and rear, and the property has the benefit of a downstairs cloakroom and W.C. The first floor comprises three superb bedrooms, the master bedroom enjoying an outlook across farmland, and having an exceptionally appealing en-suite shower room and W.C. The two excellent further bedrooms are served by the newly installed family bathroom and W.C.

There is a brand new oil fired boiler and tank, and the attention to detail throughout the property is evident to see. Immediately adjacent to French doors from the dining room is a most attractively laid flagstone sun terrace, beyond which is both lawned rear garden and gravelled area. A short distance away across the courtyard to the front is the garage.

One of the reasons why Peterstow is often considered a favoured village, is the wide range of facilities which include Shop, Post Office and Off Licence, Church/Village Hall, two excellent pubs, the Yew Tree and Red Lion, regular bus service and large village common. Moreover, one is within 5 minutes drive of Ross and the M50 motorway/A40 dual carriageway. In detail the property comprises:
