THE PROPERTY This unique property has previously been a wharf and a warehouse during the early nineteenth century, when trade was conducted along the River Wye. The Barge House was converted in the 1990s and subsequently extended upwards. It retains many original features, such as the floor beams, roof trusses and exposed stone walls and the reclaimed tiles to the kitchen floor.
Through the wide front door, a step leads up into the large reception room: this fabulous room, with flagstone floor, is divided by a central brick fireplace with a dual-sided Yeoman wood-burning stove, to create two distinct living spaces. The bay window overlooking the river offers unrivalled views along the river and provides a fabulous vantage point for wildlife enthusiasts.
The kitchen-breakfast room, two steps up from the garden, features a reclaimed tiled floor, a range of bespoke units with stainless steel carcasses and hardwood doors, a Sandyford oil-fired range cooker and a separate 2-ring hob. The dining end of the room has built-in bookshelves and is well lit via a skylight and a row of windows to the side.
A bespoke metal staircase with parquet treads leads from the sitting room up to the first floor. The master bedroom has extensive built-in wardrobes, sourced from Harrods, stunning river views and a staircase up to a gallery study; the study also lends itself to being used as a nursery. The master bedroom has a 'jack and jill' shower room with access from the landing. Also on the first floor are two further bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite. The fourth bedroom, on the second floor is an attractive room up in the eaves; this bedroom has an en-suite bathroom. 

LOCATION Situated on the banks of the Wye, the property has extensive river frontage and enjoys fabulous views along the Wye and across to Coppett Hill, a beautiful nature reserve of over 100 hectares.
Halfway between Goodrich and Whitchurch, the new owners will be equidistant between two local primary schools and just one mile from an excellent village store in Whitchurch. At just 6 miles from Ross-on-Wye and 5 miles from Monmouth, a wide range of amenities is available within the two towns.
The road links from here are excellent, providing swift access down to Chepstow, Newport and Bristol; access to the Midlands is via the nearby M50 motorway at Ross-on-Wye.  

EXTERNAL The gated, gravelled driveway leads to the parking area by the outbuilding and to a further, larger gravelled parking area to the front of the property. There is an enclosed patio garden to the rear of the property, edged with metal railings and mature lavenders. Among the fruit trees are Herefordshire rare breed apples and pears and there are two greenhouses, a vegetable garden and a soft fruit area.
The parkland that extends alongside the river is dotted with French Maple trees; the area beyond the first fence, with a raised section with planning permission for a field shelter, would be ideal as a paddock.
The outbuilding offers triple bay parking, one of which is enclosed; there is also a loose box and further storage, a gardener's loo, tool shed and a log store.
Single bank fishing rights can be enjoyed by the owners on the Garron, a tributary to the Wye. Steps lead down to two stone landing stages on the Wye itself, offering opportunities for canoe or boat launching.

Mains water, electricity and drainage

Right of access along the riverbank, for fishing, only for Prince Albert Angling Society members 

DIRECTIONS From the Wilton roundabout outside Ross-on-Wye, follow the A40 towards Monmouth for approximately 5 miles. Take the exit for the A4137 and turn almost immediately right onto the B4229 towards Goodrich. The entrance to the Barge House will be on the right hand side, after approximately 0.1 mile, opposite Newmills Hill.
