Notes and Comments:

Situation and Description
The Bage, is a tiny hamlet made up of several mostly stone houses and barns which lie in a beautiful part of west Herefordshire. The nearby villages of Dorstone (1 mile) and Peterchurch (3 miles) offer a range of local facilities, with Peterchurch in particular, having a useful number of amenities including a village shop and a highly regarded secondary school. The ever-popular market town of Hay on Wye lies only 5 miles away, and offers a range of facilities, as well as a world-famous annual literary festival, which attracts visitors from all over the world. The cathedral city of Hereford is then 16 miles away and provides more extensive services, including a main line train station.

Haie Barn itself stands in a generous plot and has been well maintained throughout and benefits from double glazing, oil-fired central heating, solar panels and much more. Initially approached from the B4348 by its own private driveway, a central porch and front door lead into a welcoming reception hall with an attractive oak staircase to the first floor. A large sitting room offers plenty of space to sit and relax, and has a triple aspect, as well as a stone and herringbone brick fireplace, which is a focal point for colder evenings. The room is full of character with exposed timbers and stonework and a separate study or office, provides a quieter space to work, and has a pleasant outlook over the rear gardens.

At the other end of the barn there is a comfortable dining room, ideal for entertaining, which then adjoins a separate well-appointed kitchen which features a four oven Aga. The ground floor accommodation is then supported by a useful utility and separate cloakroom.

From the reception hall an oak staircase leads up to an impressive first floor landing, which enjoys glorious views over the gardens to countryside beyond and offers plenty of space to sit and relax. The master bedroom is very spacious with a high vaulted ceiling, triple aspect and an en suite bathroom which includes a slipper bath on claw and ball feet, as well as a separate shower cubicle. There are then three further individual bedrooms, one with its own en suite and another separate shower room.

To one side of the main barn the owners have converted a former garage and workshop to create a very contemporary one-bedroom annexe. Full of light and space it provides separate accommodation for extended family or could just offer income potential. On the ground floor there is a large open plan living room with laminate flooring, double glazing, electric heating and a fitted kitchen. In one corner there is a well-appointed shower room, and a staircase then leads up to a first-floor bedroom with vaulted ceiling, rooflights and extensive under eaves storage space.

The gardens then form a particular feature of Haie Barn with whole plot extending to approximately ¾ of an acre. Landscaped throughout they include lawned areas to the front and rear interspersed with trees, shrubs, floral borders and different areas to sit and relax. At the rear the gardens enjoy far-reaching views to a nearby hillside and a kitchen garden has four productive raised beds. A useful garden store/ workshop (4.5m x 4.5m) has power connected and there is also a greenhouse and summerhouse. Finally, an outdoor kitchen/ barbecue space has power and lighting and is enclosed on two sides with a slatted oak roof.
