  • A Country Property and Excellent Development Opportunity
  •  Detached Period Three Bedroom Farmhouse with scope for improvement
  •  Range of Outbuildings with Planning Permission for Conversion to Five Dwellings
  •  Set in Approx. 7 Acres (or up to approx. 45 acres) in a Lovely Rural and Accessible Location

The property is in a lovely rural location which is extremely accessible to the A40.
There is a period farmhouse in need of updating and planning permission has been gained for the conversion of the adjoining barn and other outbuildings to create a further five separate dwellings. Please see planning application number 191499 Herefordshire Council Planning Portal.
In the agents opinion this is a rare opportunity and there are a number of possibilities on the split of the land providing the original farmhouse and perhaps a number of the conversions with adjoining paddocks.  Alternatively the property might suit someone wishing to move to the country and slowly develop the site over a number of years, creating a small accommodation complex with great income potential.
The property is situated just out of the village of Whitchurch which has a village shop and pub and is just off the A40 dual carriageway. This provides excellent communications to both Ross on Wye to the North and Monmouth to the South.
The beautiful Wye Valley and the famous Symonds Yat are readily accessible to the property in this beautiful location.

The property is currently approached off the country lane by a gated and splayed access leading into a private driveway with a lawned area and garden to the side and on up to the side of the house and beyond to the enclosed courtyard area and buildings beyond.  There is a secondary access further along the lane just off the bend, which is where the proposed new access will come into the property and on round to the development at the rear.
The Land is a particularly nice feature of this property which runs right round the farmstead and comprises six main blocks of highly productive pastureland enclosed by a mixture of hedging and fencing, one with a lovely woodland coppice and a far field which leads down to the stream. All of the enclosures have either mains or natural water supply and the views from the land have to be seen to be fully appreciated.
