This stunning property is set on its own plot on a small development created from a traditional farmhouse and its associated buildings. It offers a house-spanning and highly malleable open plan living space flooded with light from expansive glazing that naturally invites the gathering of family and friends. Over the past 2 years the property has undergone some SMART upgrades including new Vaillant Ecotec green iQ boiler, keyless entry doors and the installation of mirrored glazing film to the south gable for privacy and to prevent excess solar heating. Outside the gables are protected by elegant rain canopies while the grounds are secured behind oak fencing with an electric gate, sensor floodlighting and laser tracking with night vision security cameras. Having previously obtained permission for a single storey extension and more particularly with the Detached Annexe, excellent scope is offered for multi-generational living, private guest accommodation, home working, artisan studio or income from rentals and Airbnb.
The Barn is quietly located, set back off a country lane on the outskirts of Holme Lacy with enchanting views to open countryside. The village is home to a small primary school, agricultural college offering a diverse range of short courses with associated riding school and Holme Lacy House Hotel with Gym and Spa. An Ofsted “Outstanding” primary school lies in neighbouring Mordiford with the nearby Haugh Woods providing a magnet for walkers and mountain bikers among its 850 acres of protected ancient woodland. The City amenities of Hereford lie only 5 miles away, while the village of Fownhope is 3 miles away offering shop with post office, GP’s, 2 pubs, butcher’s and Wye Leisure Club with pools and fitness. Ross-On-Wye and its M50 access is 12 miles.
