This 1800s home close to the River Wye combines the Georgian and Victorian eras with sweeping rural views.

Bishopswood Leigh, in Ross-on-Wye, is a stone house thought to date back to the early 1800s, with additions in the 1890s.

The second floor is described as a “blank canvas”, with space for a further three bedrooms, a bathroom, a cloakroom and a store room.

There is also a two-storey workshop, which the agent suggests could be converted into an annexe with the necessary planning permission.

Outside the house, the grounds span more than half an acre, including landscaped gardens, a kitchen garden and a paddock.

The house is being marketed by Savills, and is listed for a price of £875,000.

Phil Bates of Savills Cheltenham, commented: “Bishopswood Leigh is a very attractive period home boasting a multitude of Georgian and Victorian features.

“Set within the rolling countryside close to the River Wye, its elevated position means glorious far-reaching views.

“An appealing family home as it is, a two storey outbuilding offers further potential, perhaps for multi-generation families or guests, subject to planning permission.”
