Location & Description:
In a pleasant village location an interesting opportunity to acquire a very individual character property with adjoining stone barn and a range of outbuildings all offering considerable potential for redevelopment subject to any necessary consent.

The house benefits from oil fired central heating and partial double glazing. It briefly comprises on the ground floor a canopy porch, reception hall, spacious sitting room, kitchen, rear lobby and a utility room with Wc off. On the first floor the landing gives access to three bedrooms and a bathroom. Barn End has lawned gardens and a driveway provides off road parking for several vehicles and gives access to a large open fronted garage. It should be noted that additional land that adjoins this property may be available by separate negotiation.

The property is conveniently situated in the popular village of Lea which has an excellent range of local facilities including a village shop, garage, public house, primary school and church. The historic riverside town of Ross on Wye is approximately 5 miles distant and the city of Gloucester approximately 12 miles distant both of which provide further excellent amenities. The M50 motorway is easily accessible at Ross on Wye.

The various outbuildings and barn offer considerable potential for redevelopment subject to any necessary consent. It should be noted that planning consent was granted by Herefordshire Council in 1986 for the conversion of the barn to a dwelling. A further consent was granted in 1990 for the conversion of the outbuildings and barn into 5 holiday units. It should be noted that both these consents have now lapsed.

A gated driveway to the side of Barn End provides vehicular access to the property and leads to a large open fronted garage (23'6 x 9'5) and a further derelict outbuilding. Double iron gates off the driveway lead through to a courtyard garden which is mainly laid to lawn with established plants and shrubs. Arranged around the courtyard are an assortment of outbuildings including a former cow shed, open fronted store and various other barns and stores. Attached to the house itself is a large stone barn (approximately 37' x 16') with double wooden doors opening on to the courtyard.

Additional land adjoining the property may be available by separate negotiation.

It should be noted that there is an additional outbuilding, the ground floor of which is owned by the neighbouring property Lea Hall whilst the first floor is in the ownership of Barn End and therefore subject to a Flying Freehold.

It should also be noted that Barn End enjoys a right of pedestrian access over the driveway of the neighbouring Lea Hall to gain access to the front door of the property and also to an archway which leads through to the courtyard at the rear.
