Occupying a tranquil rural location within the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, The Gaff is being brought to the market for the first time in 27 years. Constructed originally by the owners of the Moreland Match Factory in Gloucester (remember England's Glory matches?), the residence served as the principal base for the keen fishermen in that noted and successful family. Since acquisition, the current owners have fastidiously refurbished the property in a most sympathetic manner.

The vehicular approach to the property runs alongside one of the most beautiful and unspoilt stretches of The River Wye, and the mature deciduous trees bordering the estate lend to the property a wonderful atmosphere of timeless elegance. The house and gardens in total extend to circa. 1.58 acres

All principal rooms have a south easterly or south westerly aspect across the gardens towards the enticing views beyond. Moreover, the verandahs to both these elevations add further to the immense appeal.

There is a wonderfully welcoming 45' reception hall, 26' kitchen/breakfast room with Aga and four reception rooms including an exquisite library and panelled dining room.

The north easterly wing comprises a 50ft pool/leisure/music complex, whilst a wing to the southwest comprises a cleverly positioned suite of offices. For those who may have several vehicles or particular interests, there are three separate gated vehicular accesses, together with garaging and numerous outbuildings. These include a sizeable Aviary or series of kennels, workshop, summerhouse, greenhouse and garaging. The richly planted landscaped gardens are beautifully laid out and comprise a series of ‘garden rooms', each with a particular appeal of their own. There is also a most productive vegetable and caged soft fruit section, together with an exquisite Hartley greenhouse.

Despite the tranquil rural location, one is within ten minutes' drive of Ross and the motorway/dual carriageway complex.
