Unexpectedly back on the market House Simple is pleased to present this 5 bedroom Farm House in Ross-on-Wye. Perched on a hill Phocle Farmhouse oozes charm and original features, flag stones, bread ovens and boiling pots all in situ.
The majority of the house dates back to the early 18th century and underwent extensive renovation in 2007, including re-wiring and new plumbing and windows.
On the ground floor there are three reception rooms, two with wood burners and the third with a large open fireplace. There is a downstairs shower room and the large family kitchen has an aga and a wonderful old working range along with a pantry.
On the first floor there is a master bedroom with double aspect views and ensuite, a second bedroom with ensuite and a mezzanine and two further double rooms served by a large family bathroom. On the second floor is a generous double bedroom and bathroom.
Leading off the kitchen is the old 'back kitchen' with the original bread ovens and boiling pots and access to a lower Granary room. The top half of the Granary is accessed externally via stone steps. The Granary was renovated in 2013, including a new roof, the upper floor of the Granary being converted into an open studio with bathroom leaving potential for further conversion in the lower rooms, at present used for storage.
There is also an old 'cart' shed, the roof and timber frame were renewed in 2014, which could easily be extended to provide further storage or carport.
The house is surrounded by garden with the rest of the plot being separated into two paddocks. There is an agricultural barn at the far end of the plot with separate vehicular access from the lane beyond.
The Forest of Dean and the River Wye are on your doorstep offering a multitude of sporting and leisure activities. There's an excellent choice of schools, both primary and secondary state schools locally, and independent schools can be found in Hereford, Monmouth and Gloucester...all with school buses.
Good road links, including the M50 a mile away, enable easy access to both Bristol and Birmingham within the hour and a comprehensive train service runs from Gloucester, 16 miles away, including direct, hourly trains to Paddington.
