The property is in a lovely rural location which is extremely accessible to the A40.
There is a period farmhouse in need of updating and planning permission has been gained for the conversion of the adjoining barn and other outbuildings to create a further five separate dwellings. Please see planning application number 191499 Herefordshire Council Planning Portal.
In the agents opinion this is a rare opportunity and there are a number of possibilities on the split of the land providing the original farmhouse and perhaps a number of the conversions with adjoining paddocks. Alternatively the property might suit someone wishing to move to the country and slowly develop the site over a number of years, creating a small accommodation complex with great income potential.
The property is situated just out of the village of Whitchurch which has a village shop and pub and is just off the A40 dual carriageway. This provides excellent communications to both Ross on Wye to the North and Monmouth to the South.
The beautiful Wye Valley and the famous Symonds Yat are readily accessible to the property in this beautiful location.

OUTSIDE, OUTBUILDINGS & LAND
The property is currently approached off the country lane by a gated and splayed access leading into a private driveway with a lawned area and garden to the side and on up to the side of the house and beyond to the enclosed courtyard area and buildings beyond. There is a secondary access further along the lane just off the bend, which is where the proposed new access will come into the property and on round to the development at the rear.
The Land is a particularly nice feature of this property which runs right round the farmstead and comprises six main blocks of highly productive pastureland enclosed by a mixture of hedging and fencing, one with a lovely woodland coppice and a far field which leads down to the stream. All of the enclosures have either mains or natural water supply and the views from the land have to be seen to be fully appreciated.

Just a quick thank you to you and your company for the help we received from you all. Every conversation with staff members was pleasant and caring. We will definitely recommend Rural Scene to others.
I really don’t know how to thank you for the last 2 months of your time you have been priceless and you are amazing at what you do and have helped to change my life 💝💝💝💝 Due to how amazing you clearly are we have so much trust and respect for you that we are going to be delighted to place our cottage on the market with Rural Scene once we have moved and we would recommend you without hesitation to anybody needing to sell a rural property x
We just wanted to pass on our enormous thanks for the hard work you and your company put into selling our property and helping with the purchase of this house. We also want to thank you for your unfailing support, encouragement and cheerfulness through what was, for us, a very stressful time
I just wanted to pass on my thanks for all your tremendous work during the sale of our property. It's been a bit of a rollercoaster at times but you did a great job in lining up the buyers for us. From the get-go I've felt we're in good hand with Rural Scene. Estate agents don't always get the best press but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone selling their smallholding.
I felt I must write to you both to express my gratitude for the work Abi Rhodes has done on the sale of M......... From the initial meeting she has demonstrated expert knowledge in our type of property that had just been lacking from other agents and filled us with confidence. Throughout the marketing and sale she has been thoroughly professional yet friendly in dealing with the 77 viewings we had to undertake to get to the final sale. Some of the people as we have neared the sale have frankly been rude and in some cases unpleasant and Abi has dealt with them all and shielded us from it completely. She has worked tirelessly to get us finally to completion. I would not hesitate in recommending your company to anyone looking to market the properties you work with.
