Location & description

Stonecroft is set in the village of Ponsthill some three miles southeast of the market and tourist town of Ross-on-Wye. Local village schools include Weston-under-Penyard and Lea, whilst both John Kyrle High School in Ross and Abenhall School at Mitcheldean are highly regarded.Whilst being in a rural setting with fantastic views across farmland and countryside, Stonecroft is just a few minutes drive from the A40 and thus has excellent access to the motorway network with cities such as Gloucester, Cheltenham, Worcester and Hereford all being within an hours drive or under. The property has many features that give it a 'cottagey' feel, with attractive stonework and beams, but has plenty of space for modern living including a well-appointed Kitchen/Breakfast Room with archway through to the generously proportioned Living/Dining Room.The rear garden is set on three levels, the highest elevation having glorious views across farmland, hills and trees. To the front the property has a single parking space but in addition the current owner has an agreement with a local farmer for further parking just over the road at a very reasonable fee (to be negotiated separately).Overall, the property offers versatile accommodation for a potential purchaser and only a thorough internal inspection will reveal the true nature of the detail the property comprises:-

Entrance Porch
