Occupying a beautifully secluded location not far from the top of Bulls Hill, the property known as New Buildings comprises a four bedroom detached house of character, three substantial stone outbuildings and approx. 5 acres of land together with a wildlife pond.

The main dwelling offers immense character, retaining many original features. With four bedrooms, a superb, beamed sitting room, large fireplace, bread oven and wood burning stove, family kitchen with Aga.

The stone outbuildings were originally a Carpenters Workshop, Stables and Blacksmiths

With the option to create either two additional dwellings, or retain the former Stables which still has its original stone floor, New Buildings is suitable for equestrian use or as a wildlife area with it's pond and wild flowers.

Pre Application advice was sought in February 2021 for the change of use of the Carpenters Workshop & Stables to residential, and the response from the local authority included the phrase “as such, the potential for the use of the buildings for residential purposes, as holiday accommodation, and/or as full residential use is accepted” The detailed Pre App response is available for inspection as an attachment to this brochure online.

Situated close to the main house is also an art studio/summer house providing a peaceful space to sit and enjoy the surrounding meadow and wildlife.

For those concerned with strategic location and accessibility, the M50 motorway is accessible on the outskirts of Ross, or alternatively the A40 dual carriageway, linking into the M5 and M4, is accessible within approx. 10 mins drive at Whitchurch and Hereford 15 Miles
