A deceptively spacious barn conversion, in small quiet hamlet, offering excellent family accommodation, full of character and charm throughout, with level gardens and garaging. The owner is motivated to move forward.

Situation and Description

The small hamlet of Ailey is tucked-away in northwest Herefordshire and is made up of a cluster of individual cottages and houses. Between the larger villages of Staunton on Wye, Eardisley and Almeley, there are a good range of local services with more extensive facilities within a short drive at the market towns of Hay on Wye, Kington and the cathedral city of Hereford.

Ailey Barn was converted in 2005-2007 and offers very versatile living accommodation laid out over two floors. The living area is deceptively spacious with three main reception rooms, a study, or home office, and a large kitchen/breakfast room. The bedroom space is separated making it ideal for teenagers. Full of character and charm the barn faces due west overlooking its own gardens and offers both garaging and ample parking.

On arrival, a glazed front door leads into an impressive reception hall with vaulted ceiling, exposed timbering, oak flooring, storage cupboards and galleried landing at the rear. Glazed double doors lead into a very comfortable sitting room, which again has an oak floor and windows to one side. A separate study or home office creates a quiet space to work and a second sitting room or potential dining room overlooks the gardens. The large kitchen/breakfast room is well appointed and a very practical space, again full of character. There are plenty of fitted units including a central workstation and a range of appliances including a Belling 7 ring range style cooker.

The ground floor space is supported by a cloakroom, and various built in storage cupboards. In addition, there is an enclosed garage/ playroom with adjoining boiler room, housing the oil fired central heating system, and an open garage.

From the galleried landing the staircase splits at one end of the house and leads to the master bedroom with a vaulted ceiling, roof light windows to one side and en suite shower room. At the other end of the landing a guest suite (bedrooms 2 and 3) create both a bedroom and workspace with an adjoining bathroom. The remaining two bedrooms each have their own staircase access from the kitchen/ breakfast room, making them ideal for teenagers or extended family, and both have en suite facilities.

Outside the property is approached from the village lane by a right of way and then its own drive which leads to a large parking area to the front of the barn and gives access to an open fronted garage. The gardens face almost due west and are very private. Now well established, they include patio and lawned areas, and various mature shrubs and plants.
