Property Summary

Penyworlod Farm Barns were converted in recent years from a range of traditional outbuildings and whilst the property retains many original features such as exposed timbers and stone walls, much thought has been put into creating a truly stunning family home. The interior is beautifully decorated with an abundance of floor-to-ceiling windows whilst outside is a contemporary, stylish garden. Although attached to a similar adjoining property, the house enjoys a high degree of privacy.

Ground Floor
This impressive home is entered through a stable door to a timber entrance porch with ample storage for outdoor attire. The porch leads directly into the kitchen/dining room with plenty of space for a large dining set, oak style ‘Vusta’ flooring and exposed stone wall with woodburning stove. The kitchen is fitted with a bespoke range of farmhouse-style base and wall cupboards complemented with hardwood work surfaces, LED lighting and a large, matching island/breakfast bar with halogen hob and stainless steel extractor overhead. There is a butler sink, space for an American-style refrigerator and various integrated appliances including a dishwasher and twin ovens with microwave. A door leads to a utility room with plumbing for further appliances, a separate W.C. and storage cupboard. Spiral stone steps lead from the kitchen to a fabulous dual aspect reception room with flagstone floor and a central woodburning stove. Glazed doors open to a pretty courtyard at the rear with patio area and stepping stones to a small stone shed. A further set of steps rise to a welcoming family room with wooden floor, a woodburning stove set in a deep stone inglenook and splendid A-frame timbers. Full height windows offer lovely views across the grounds and a set of open riser wooden steps pro-vide access to a mezzanine office with bespoke glazed panels and feature windows to the gable end. From the main reception room is an inner hall leading to a double bedroom, understairs cupboard and fully-tiled bathroom. Adjacent is a cosy lounge area with oak laminate flooring, ceiling timbers, stove and full height windows with doors to the terrace.

Full Details

First Floor
Stone steps rise to the first floor landing to an attic bedroom featuring attractive timbers, built-in wardrobe space and stable door with external steps to the ground floor. Along the hall is a family bathroom, further storage and two bedrooms, one with a Juliette balcony offering views over open fields. The principal bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and a glorious en suite wetroom comprising double sinks, low-level dual aspect windows, a luxurious slipper bath and steps to a huge glazed enclosure with twin showers.

A separate stone annexe affords an excellent summer garden room with bi-fold wooden doors to the garden and a separate shower room. The substantial kitchen area has slate flooring, cream cupboards and a butler-style sink. Adjacent is a double garage extending to over 25’ with potential for further conversion, subject to any necessary planning consent.

Step Outside
Wrought iron gates set within high stone walls open to an extensive gravelled driveway enclosed by a low wall surmounted with iron railings. The extensive parking/turning area is edged with shrub borders and features a central raised border with lamp post. A cedar-clad three-bay carport has an adjoining workshop providing excellent storage. The well-maintained and landscaped gardens are accessed via a pedestrian gate to a winding pathway with arched trellises leading to the front entrance. The multilevel grounds incorporate an attractive combination of slate borders, lawns, perennial shrub borders and numerous seating options for outdoor entertaining. A decked area has a patio and steps to a stylish barrel sauna and to the other side of the lawn is a raised swimming pool sheltered by an open-sided wooden structure.

Situated just over the Welsh/English border near the pretty Herefordshire village of Rowlestone, around 2 miles from Ewyas Harold on the A465. The village boasts a handful of amenities including shops, two pubs, a primary school, and doctor’s surgery and is approximately halfway between Hereford to the north and Abergavenny to the south. Hereford sits on the River Wye and has all of the expected out-of-town retail parks, high street chain stores and independent boutiques in the city centre. The city and surrounding villages offer innumerable high quality restaurants and traditional pubs. The historic market town of Abergavenny, known as the Gateway to Wales, hosts a calendar of popular events including the annual Food Festival. Both Hereford and Abergavenny offer a good range of amenities including general hospitals, mainline train stations and excellent leisure facilities. Sought-after state and private schooling possibilities are available locally. Renowned for its glorious rolling countryside, the area around Rowlestone offers a wide range of activities in the nearby Brecon Beacons. The arterial A465 road continues south to the Heads of the Valleys road to West Wales and links to the A4042 and A40 which in turn lead to the M50/M5 and M4 motorways.

Mains electricity and water (metered), private drainage, oil-fired central heating. Underfloor heating to ground floor. Superfast broadband to the premises.
