Originally two adjoining barns, a single storey cow byre and two storey cider mill, the impressive scale of this stunning l-shaped family home has allowed for a conversion that effortlessly combines the demands for modern living with the charm of these historic buildings.

The hamlet of Stretton Grandison lies within an attractive area of east Herefordshire and is just north of the popular village of Ashperton, 9 miles northwest of Ledbury and 9 miles east of Hereford. The gently rolling countryside provides a beautiful landscape with apple orchards in the immediate vicinity. The Cathedral city of Hereford and popular market town of Ledbury are nearby with an array of shops and facilities including supermarkets and main line train stations with direct trains to London Paddington and Birmingham. Access to the M50 motorway is 12.5 miles southeast and the Cathedral city of Worcester is 18 miles to the east.

Newtown Cross petrol station is just over 1 mile and has a Spar shop for convenience shopping.

The Property

Accessed via a short track just off the A417 Roman Road, the property is the first to be approached of the five that make up Townsend Barns. At the front, there is a lawned area parted with a gravelled parking area for two cars. A gravelled footpath leads to the Front Door on the side of the property.

Stepping into the spacious entrance hall via a half glazed wooden door, attention is immediately stolen by the stunning vaulted ceiling with exposed ceiling timbers, original brick wall and travertine stone flooring. To the right is an oak floored corridor leading to the bedrooms, bathrooms and family room/study. Immediately to the left is a cavernous cloakroom with travertine floors, W.C and built-in airing cupboard and coat store. The hall leads through glazed panel doors to an open plan kitchen dining room of grand proportions beautifully lit both naturally and with modern lighting.

Undoubtedly the hub of this home is the impressive kitchen dining room. This modern fitted kitchen features travertine stone flooring, cream gloss fitted cupboards and drawers with brushed stainless steel door furniture topped with a composite countertop. A large central island with breakfast bar includes plug points and pull out basket drawers. The stylish countertop runs almost the entire length of the kitchen and includes a sunken ceramic sink with modern mixer tap and an induction hob with stainless steel extractor above. Double eye-level ovens, pantry style pull out cupboards and integrated fridge, freezer and dishwasher also feature. There is space for a large dining table comfortably fitting eight chairs with plenty of circulation space. Windows on two sides provide an abundance of natural light and a large door flanked with panelled windows opens directly onto the inviting south facing garden.

Off the kitchen lies a Utility Room with stainless steel sink and drainer and further fitted units housing a Worcester Greenstar boiler. There is ample space for laundry white goods as well as an additional under counter fridge/freezer. A further countertop makes this an ideal spot for practical household matters.

Beyond the kitchen dining room is the Sitting Room of generous dimensions with an impressive central king post truss, engineered oak flooring and a combination of beam mounted spots lights and wall lights. The dual aspect outlook and large windows overlooking the garden create lots of natural light. Exposed brick columns balance the clean lines of the neutral modern décor.

Back via the hallway is a wide corridor leading to two good sized ground floor double rooms with windows overlooking the garden. Exposed beams give the added character to the comfortable carpeted rooms. Opposite is a large family bathroom with ceramic tiled floors, bath with central mixer tap with hand-held shower, W.C and pedestal ceramic sink. Next door is the Study/Family Room, a highly malleable and more intimate room ideal for the pursuits of hobbies, as a Library, Home Office or a fifth bedroom.

At the end of the corridor are a series of fitted cupboards, under the oak staircase, providing excellent discreet storage. Opposite the staircase is a further large door leading onto the garden. The modern oak staircase leads to a carpeted landing featuring exposed ceiling timbers and leads to the two upstairs bedrooms and eaves storage room.

First is the guest bedroom featuring impressive ceiling timbers and benefitting from a generous en-suite that features a shower cubicle, WC and pedestal basin and wall mirror with integrated lighting above.

To the far end of the landing lies the Master Bedroom, with a light and airy feel created by its vaulted ceiling. This lovely room enjoys opposing dual aspect windows and a further en-suite with shower cubicle, WC and pedestal basin and wall mirror with integrated lighting above.

An eaves storage room lies off the landing and provides cavernous storage space with easy access, perfect for busy families.

Zonal underfloor heating warms the feet throughout the ground floor, with radiators warming the rooms on the first floor. Solid wood double glazing features throughout the property and with modern insulation this property is very comfortable in the coldest of winters.

Outside

The main garden is largely laid to lawn and is fully enclosed by the south and west elevations of the property and high walls on the opposing sides. The south west aspect and large flagstone patio make it an excellent sheltered sun trap ideal for al fresco dining.

At the front of the property is a private parking area, with space for two cars, flanked by lawn. Beyond this the track splits and to the right leads into a shared courtyard. On the left, just before entering the courtyard, is a further piece of lawn which would make a good location for a vegetable patch. Alternatively, it could be made into further parking (subject to consent).

The courtyard gives access to a single garage with light and power and useful storage space above. Surrounding the north side of the property is a gravelled area with surrounding walls.
