Situation and Description
Barrow Cottage lies on a small lane on the outskirts of Kingstone village, which has a thriving centre and offers both a primary and secondary school, a preschool, medical centre, village shop, public house, village hall and much more. Further facilities can be found at Allensmore and Peterchurch, with the market towns of Abergavenny, Ross on Wye, Monmouth and Hay on Wye all being within easy reach. The cathedral city of Hereford is only 8 miles away and offers a full range of facilities and a mainline train station.
The property offers versatile living accommodation which has been extended and greatly improved in recent years. Much of the original cottage has been retained whilst a modern extension has added a large family kitchen and a very impressive master bedroom suite with wet room dressing area and balcony overlooking farmland. Double glazed throughout, with mains gas fired central heating, the accommodation is very comfortable with a purpose-built home office adding an extra dimension.
On arrival, a porch and front door leads into a cosy reception hall/snug with exposed timbering, fireplace with fitted wood burner and oak flooring. The main sitting room is a good size and has a fireplace, plenty of character, and direct access to the gardens. There is a separate dining room ideal for entertaining and a superb kitchen/ breakfast room at the rear which has oak flooring, granite worktops and all the usual fittings including a Rangemaster cooker. Bi-folds allow plenty of light in and lead directly out to a large sun terrace and the gardens. The ground floor accommodation is supported by a utility/ boot room and a cloakroom.
On the first floor a very impressive master suite has been created to offer a good-sized dressing area, a wet room, vaulted ceiling and bi-fold doors to a large balcony with a fantastic outlook over open countryside. There are three further bedrooms including a guest suite also with a wet room and a family bathroom.
From a small lane Barrow Cottage has a driveway at either end of its plot which offers plenty of parking space.
The double garage 20’2 x 17’ has an automatic door with window and door to rear and boarded loft space. At the rear there is a useful bike shed and steps lead up to a purpose-built home office 14 x 8’4 with bi-fold doors to the front, power, lighting, internet connection and insulation. The gardens in the main lie to one side and are laid mainly to lawn and are enclosed by close boarded fencing and hedging, with four raised beds and a pathway running between the house and the home office.
