350 year old ‘Charming’ Herefordshire Cottage for sale on Zoopla
A ‘CHARMING’ three bedroom stone cottage and one bedroom barn conversion are for sale in a rural Herefordshire village for £ 700,000.
Both houses are in a secluded position in picturesque Llanwarne, between Ross-on-Wye and Monmouth.
The Zoopla list stated that they are set in “mature and beautifully landscaped gardens” and that they have both been “lovingly restored, combining natural materials and a soft color palette with original architectural features”.
“Rich in character, the oldest parts of the house are believed to have been built around 350 years ago,” officers Inigo said.
“A series of significant modifications over the past two decades have been executed with exemplary care and attention to detail, in order to honor and maintain the integrity of the building.
“The adjacent barn has undergone a major renovation in recent years, creating a modern one-bedroom annex that fits perfectly into the agricultural vernacular.
“The Annex is currently operating as a successful vacation rental and is being offered as a going concern, details of which can be shared upon request.”
Situated on a quiet country lane at the edge of the village, the house is hidden from view on a private driveway.
“A ripe rose climbs the beautiful, soft-colored stone facade, where a half-timbered glass door leads to the main living space,” he added.
“This is a warm and welcoming room arranged in a mostly open plan, with a large wood-burning stove placed to one side, solid oak flooring under the feet and thick oak beams above.
“The ground floor has a natural and easy flow, with the dining room and kitchen adjoining the living room at opposite ends.
“The dining room is a beautifully proportioned space with olive green colored walls, original decorative floor tiles and a wood-burning stove.
“The kitchen has whitewashed walls paired with terracotta floor tiles and appliances carefully integrated into bespoke cabinets, topped with solid oak worktops.”
A laundry room and a powder room are also positioned on the ground floor and connected to the kitchen and the outdoor courtyard.
An open wooden staircase leads to the three bedrooms on the first floor.
One of the bedrooms is currently used as an office / home office, but could easily be converted into an additional bedroom.
The family bathroom has a claw-foot tub and a recessed window overlooking the surrounding evergreens.
The renovation of the adjoining barn has managed to retain its scale and volume, with sloping double-height ceilings interspersed with thick oak beams.
A modern kitchen spans one end of the living space, with the sleeping area positioned on the mezzanine above.
The living room is comfortable and welcoming, with a wood-burning stove providing a natural centerpiece.
Extensive skylights run the length of the roof line, inviting excellent quality of natural light during the day and framing a starry sky at night.
