Location & Description
Linden Hall is set in a particularly beautiful stretch of countryside some 5 miles west of the renowned tourist town of Ross-on-Wye. The market towns of Monmouth, Abergavenny & Hereford are all within approx 20 minutes drive, and for those who need motorway connections, the M50 may be accessed at Ross within 15 minutes drive.

The initial approach to Linden Hall is via a tree lined tarmac driveway (Lime trees), after which the approach divides into three. One then enters the gravelled, tree lined approach to Linden Hall, this time the driveway running between gorgeous Silver Birch trees, the drive terminating in a huge paved forecourt which lies adjoining the north western façade of the barn. We believe that construction of the barn commenced in the late 18th Century, whilst conversion took place in approx 1997.

Internally, the accommodation is exquisite. Textures, tones and materials all complement one another beautifully, the massive Oak beams blending harmoniously with partially exposed stone and brickwork in a manner which almost takes your breathe away. It is partly the nature of the Cruck frame construction that leads to the property being Listed Grade II. The drawing room in particular is magnificent, the sense of space and grandeur being enhanced both by the mezzanine level overcroft and the light admittance from above. Most principal rooms have an outlook across the final tree lined approach drive, whilst almost all of the remaining rooms have an outlook across nearby farmland.

Positioned to the south western corner of the site is the 26’, two storey stone granary (currently housing a full sized, 1912 Burroughs & Watts, steel block snooker table, available to purchase if desired) and this stone granary lends yet further atmosphere to the beautifully landscaped rear garden.

To the front of the property lies the 28’ garage/workshop complex, whilst leading away from same are the lawned gardens which flank the tree lined driveway. All in all, a wonderful property which needs to be fully inspected to be truly appreciated. In detail, the accommodation comprises:-

Outside
An 11’ wide, wooden estate gate opens onto the initially curving gravelled driveway, which soon straightens out, and is flanked by Silver Birch trees (Snow Queen) to create a magnificient final approach to the Barn. Alongside the Silver Birch are two stretches of neatly mown Lawn, interspersed with, and/or fringed by a wide variety of shrubs and young trees, species including Viburnum, Magnolia, Flowering Cherry, Hydrangea, Red Oak, Cornus Florida and many more. Towards the south eastern corner of the lawned section is a fine Cedrus Atlantica Glauca with a Beech hedge adjacent.

Delineated by a pair of 5 bar wooden gates totalling a width of 11’ is the Outstanding Brick Paved Courtyard/Forecourt. This is of overall max dimensions approx 100’ x 65’. To the eastern side of this courtyard, a dwarf stone wall fronts other shrub/herbaceous beds, with species including Acers, Magnolia, Buddleia, Philadelphus, Lilac and many more. To one side of the gravel bed is a Wooden Pergola approx 25’ x 6’. Positioned at various points around this courtyard are PIR operated external lights, together with a cold water standpipe.

Positioned close to the western boundary is the Superb Garage/Workshop Block. This is of stout brick and timber construction and stands under a most attractive double pitched and hipped, pan tiled roof, being of overall external dimensions approx 28’ x 18’6. This comprises two parking spaces and 6’ wide lockable double doors opening through to the Workshop Section being of approx dimensions 18’ x 7’.

Positioned above the garage section is a substantial storage area which is currently under utilised.

Forming a lean-to structure on the front wall of the garage is a Small, Gothic Shaped Greenhouse together with cold water standpipe close by. There are also two water butts standing adjacent to the garage.

The Walled Rear Garden has been cleverly designed specifically for ease of maintenance and comprises a wide variety of materials including flagstone, millstones, brick and gravel of different geological origin. There is even a small Van Gogh type wooden bridge which crosses the small stream which flows from the Large, Stone Bordered Pond. There are also areas of

astro turf, again most effectively low maintenance, and many different areas of the garden in which to sit out and take in available sunshine at different times of the day. High stone walling encloses the whole of this area, leading to a high degree of seclusion and privacy.

Towards the north-eastern boundary is a Most Attractive Conical Stone and Slate Roofed Structure covering the unusually wide and deep Stone Well, whilst to the south-western corner of the garden is a Two Storey Stone Granary, which is currently under-utilised, and has great potential. The ground floor currently houses a full-size snooker table. This is not included in the sale, but negotiation could possibly take place thereon. The ceiling of this room comprises the original massive structural timber beams, an access hatch enabling ladder access, if required, to the first floor over. This excellent structure is of overall approx external dimensions 26’ x 16’ and could perhaps become a home office, studio or similar. There are two slimline night storage heaters and fitted carpet. Flanking the rear of the house itself is a Superb, Brick Paved Courtyard/Sun Terrace of overall max dimensions approx. 35’ x 30’. This wonderfully secluded area not only receives a high degree of available sunlight, but has direct openings onto it from drawing room, family room and dining room. Wooden trellis work, fencing and shrubs with slate surround border this area, the shrubs including both purple and light green, Fine Cut Acers. There are also two Cercis Forest Pansy trees.
