This area offers a sought-after rural idyll, and the property enjoys a peaceful location, yet is well-placed for the local market towns of Ross, Ledbury, and Monmouth, with the city of Hereford also only a short drive away.

* Oakwood was originally a detached stone barn, likely dating to the late 1800’s, and was historically used for storing Perry pears. Surrounding the barn were traditional Perry pear orchards and there is one remaining tree which provides a wonderful reminder of the property’s past. This super home has been subsequently extended over the years to create a fabulous property offering extremely spacious and versatile accommodation. * A covered porch leads into a spacious entrance hall where there is a useful downstairs WC. Leading off the entrance hall is a very spacious and light family/dining room with modern wood-burner and glazed bi-fold doors leading out to the patio terrace. * The attractive, bespoke, and hand-painted kitchen by Regency Bespoke (Newent) is open to the dining/family room. There is ample storage including a large, walk-in larder, and the kitchen benefits from a Quooker hot tap, a range of integrated appliances including two NEFF, full-size electric (truncated)

Oakwood Continued

* A reception room leads off the rear of the kitchen and provides a good space for a variety of uses, such as a playroom or home office. There is a further snug/TV room, a great second sitting room for older children. * A quarter staircase leads up to the main and spacious sitting room which is lovely and light due to the super, glazed front and rear elevations. The feeling of space is further enhanced by the vaulted ceiling which features exposed timber trusses. A contemporary wood-burner by Lotus takes pride of place and provides a wonderful focal point for this lovely room and is complemented by bespoke, built-in shelving/bookcases either side. There is a second and useful entrance hall leading off the sitting room. * A half-staircase leads up from the sitting room to two double bedrooms, both with modern en-suite shower rooms. The larger room also benefits from an additional attached room which offers potential for a variety of uses such as a sitting or dressing room.

Oakwood Continued

* Going back to the ground floor there are two further double bedrooms, both with en-suite bath/shower rooms, and a further reception room leading off the entrance hall which are all accessed via a pair of modern, internal oak doors, enabling this part of the property to be closed off from the rest of the house. * The main bedroom is very generously proportioned and benefits from a spacious en-suite bathroom with separate bath and a wet room style shower. French doors lead out to a private seating area. * There is a further reception room, currently used as a music room, with potential for use as a fifth bedroom if desired. * This suite of rooms could easily be used to create a separate annexe for older children or dependent family members.

The Outside

* The property is approached off a country lane via electric gates and onto a long, concreted driveway which forks and bears around to a large, gravelled parking area to the front of the property or goes straight on to the stables, paddocks, and arena. * The large garden is mainly lawn planted with specimen trees, complemented by raised beds and offers plenty of scope for further enhancement. * An area of the garden has been set aside to create a super vegetable garden with raised beds and greenhouse. * A smart, patio terrace runs the whole length of the front of the house and provides ample space for outdoor seating, BBQ area, etc., perfect for family get-togethers and entertaining. * An area of woodland adjoins and bounds the pasture paddocks and provides a very useful, self-sufficient wood supply. * Oakwood enjoys great views over its own land and beyond across the Three Counties.

Equestrian Facilities

* The stable yard is situated around a good, concrete hardstanding and is securely enclosed, and accessed via a gated entrance. * There is a 3-timber stable block; stables 12’ x 12’, by National Timber Stables, a separate and insulated tack room, and a hay barn/feed store. * The outdoor arena, 25m x 42m, is post and rail fenced and has a sand and Flexiride surface. * The stable yard has direct access to an adjacent winter turn out paddock, which has a field shelter, and the adjoining pasture paddocks which are securely ring-fenced with post and rail fencing. The paddocks are currently split via electric tape, and one has a further field shelter.

Equestrian Facilities (Continued)

* The stable yard and paddocks all benefit from a mains water supply and are directly and ideally accessible from the house. * Additional land, c. 4 acres, available to rent by separate arrangement. Please contact the agent for further information.
