This “exceptional” converted granary and barn sits in more than 11 acres of land and comes with a separate cottage. 

Little Peterstow Barn, in Peterstow, was originally converted in the 1980s, with the granary and the barn later being combined into one residential building. 

The main house, which spans nearly 4,500 square feet, is approached by a wide set of steps leading into the reception hall. 

To the right of the hall is a beamed drawing room with beamed ceilings, a character fireplace, and a floor-to-ceiling window.

On the opposite side of the hall is a large farmhouse style kitchen and breakfast room, featuring a granite-topped island, an AGA range and integrated appliances, while just off the kitchen is a utility room and a WC. 

The lower ground floor offers a large dining room which is also used as a snooker room, while on the half-level above is a library/study, which includes an en-suite shower and WC.

Upstairs, there are six bedrooms with farmland views, with the principal suite featuring an en-suite bathroom. 

Adjacent to the main house is a covered pergola, with solarised glass to deflect excess summer heat, while on the other side of the house is a veranda or sun terrace, with an external speaker system.

As well as the main house, the property includes a single-story cottage that was originally a barn and piggery, being constructed of mellow local stone. 

The cottage is made up of a reception room, a kitchen, two bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms.

The grounds span 11.7 acres, including landscaped gardens, pasture land, paddocks and a lake with a duck house. 

The gardens were designed by a Royal Horticultural Society gold medallist, with an apple arbour, a herb garden and a sunken trampoline.

There is also a double carport with an adjacent garage and gym, while the equestrian facilities include a field shelter and an auto-filling water trough. 

The property is for sale by Morris Bricknell for a guide price of £1,875,000.

The agent said: “Little Peterstow Barn and its exquisite two bedroom, single storey cottage lie some four miles west of the market and tourist town of Ross-on-Wye, the additional towns of Hereford, Monmouth and Ledbury all being within approximately 20 minutes drive, with easy access to motorway connections.

“Originally converted in the 1980s under the ownership of Sir John Harvey-Jones, the former supremo of ICI, the buildings formerly comprised a granary and barn. These two buildings were then sympathetically converted into one large residential unit. Since that time, extensive further refurbishment has been beautifully carried out.”
