The conversion of Garrendale Barn has been a labour of love by the builder/owner, clearly evident in the sensitivity to its heritage, with meticulous attention paid to bespoke elements and superlative finishes layered throughout; from the sculptural staircase to the burr oak Kitchen units. It retains and celebrates its character whilst creating truly welcoming and comfortable living spaces within the sweep of the iconic barn structure. With a large Garden Office allied to satellite internet and CAT6 hardwiring throughout and the exciting further potential for a self-contained Annexe, the property offers the perfect work from home, multigenerational or potential Airbnb income, escape to the country.
The barn revels in an idyllic rural position with sweeping views across open countryside and up to the summit of Garway Hill. It is set within a thriving community focused on nearby Orcop Parish Hall. It is only 5 miles to local shop/post office at either Wormelow, St Weonards or of note for its numerous amenities, to picturesque Ewyas Harold, set in the beautiful Golden Valley and providing post office/shop, Ofsted “Good” primary school, 2 butchers, dentist, GP, 2 pubs and vibrant community hall with active football and cricket teams. The full City amenities of Hereford, the market town of Ross-On-Wye with its M50 junction and the excellent independent schools of affluent Monmouth are all an equidistant 10 miles while the famed book town of Hay-On-Wye with its international Literary Festival is 22 miles.

The additional acre of land available lies adjacent, at the rear of the carport, with seldom used public right of way and offers a mixed orchard with apples, pears, cherries, plums and mulberries alongside a small nuttery. The wider open ground is home to many wildlife-supporting specimen trees, while to the lower level the Garren Brook meanders its tranquil way around natural stepping stones.
