Situation

The Garden Barn is located just outside the village of Bodenham, in a rural, yet accessible location with views over farmland, surrounded by countryside and a short distance north of the Cathedral City of Hereford. Historically known for its Hop fields and the white-faced Hereford cattle, it is still very much an agriculturally based community today. This property is well-placed with good access to the local market towns of Leominster, Bromyard, Ledbury and the City of Hereford.

The Garden Barn


This delightful property was built in 2007/8 by Oakwrights, an Oak timber frame specialist. The Garden Barn is now a charming, three-bedroom home offering good-sized accommodation throughout.
An enclosed entrance porch/boot room with fitted storage offers plenty of space for coats and boots and leads directly into the open plan kitchen/dining/family space via a pair of French doors.
The welcoming open plan living space is the heart of this lovely home and is spacious and light. The country-style kitchen offers plenty of storage and benefits from an integrated gas hob and Stoves double oven with space for a microwave.
The family/dining space is a comfortable place to congregate with family and friends and has a pair of French doors which lead out to the gravelled terrace where there are super views over the adjoining farmland and beyond.

The Garden Barn Ctd.


There is a separate sitting room with wood-burner, which enjoys lovely views over the garden with bi-fold doors leading out onto the patio terrace.
A door from the open plan living area leads through to the rest of the property where there are three bedrooms, two double and one single with a mezzanine and French doors out to the garden. The main bedroom has a double-height ceiling and an en-suite with walk-in shower and there is also a family bathroom with a bath and shower over.
There is a useful utility room with WC, additional storage and space and plumbing for a washing machine and a tumble dryer.
The living space is light throughout and complemented by exposed beams and trusses and pine floorboards, with good ceiling height in all the rooms.

The Outside


The property is approached off a country lane via a private driveway with gated access, leading to an ample gravelled parking area where there is space for several vehicles.
The generous garden is mainly lawn, and interspersed with a variety of established trees, including fruit trees, and is bounded by mature native hedges including hazel and blackthorn. The garden offers further scope for keen gardeners and there is more than enough space for veg beds and chickens, etc., if desired.
A patio terrace provides the perfect spot to sit and enjoy the garden and is complemented by a pergola with wisteria, and raised beds either side planted with a variety of flowering plants, including tulips, roses, delphiniums, and lupins.

The Outside Ctd.


The pasture paddocks are easily accessible from the property and comprise three fenced paddocks which each have their own gated access and are also interconnected. One of the paddocks has a timber field shelter.
A timber stable block is located adjacent to the house on the opposite side of the driveway and comprises two 12ft x 12ft stables, a log/hay store, and an open fronted double carport. There is a separate feed/tack room and a range of useful ancillary timber sheds.
Super views from the property and garden over the surrounding farmland and countryside beyond.
