Witty Barn is located in the rural parish of Whitbourne (Anglo-Saxon for "White Stream"), a little outside of the village itself, in Eastern Herefordshire and close to the historic market town of Bromyard. The town is referred to as the "Town of Festivals", notable for its variety of traditional festivals held throughout the year. This property is also well placed for the local towns of Ledbury, Malvern and Leominster, with the cities of Worcester and Hereford nearby. This part of Herefordshire lies close to the Worcestershire border and is known for its traditional farms, undulating countryside, and productive orchards.

Witty Barn

This smart and newly completed barn conversion sits on the edge of a small collection of converted traditional barns at Old Gaines Farm, sharing access with several dwellings.
The detached barn conversion to a 2 bedroom dwelling was completed in summer 2023 and has been signed off for building control but has not been occupied. Planning was granted on 12/7/2019.
The entrance drive leads to a spacious gravelled parking area between the house and adjacent outbuilding.
There is a front door opening to the entrance hall and everyday side door opening to the kitchen.
A large open plan fitted kitchen and living area forms the heart of this home, the kitchen with central island and electric range cooker with extractor hood.

Witty Barn Ctd.

There is underfloor heating throughout the ground floor, with limestone tiling creating an aesthetic appeal. The property benefits from lots of natural light through a combination of aluminium full glazed elevation to south and oak framed double glazing elsewhere.
A useful utility room off the kitchen has space for appliances and houses the new Worcester gas boiler.
Stairs lead to a half landing which splits and rises to 2 double bedrooms on the first floor, each with ensuite bath/shower rooms.

New Build Warranty

This property is sold with the benefit of a 10 year new build warranty, effective from April 2024.

The Outside

Opposite the house is a generous, mono pitch agricultural barn with block walls and concrete flooring, with a concrete apron in front.
There is mains water connected and a separate, 3 phase electric supply connected.
Two internal sectional stables are included in the sale, the storage container may be available by separate negotiation.
Behind the barn is a 1.9 acre paddock, plus a further 3 acre paddock which is a short walk down Gaines Road. Water is connected to the first paddock but not the second, a water bowser has been used for the latter.
Both paddocks have recently been securely stock fenced.
Access to Bringsty Common for outriding is available via a short hack up Gaines Road. What3Words: /// imagined.walls.rewriting
