Location & description
Originally constructed as a coach house and ancillary buildings to one of the grand houses nearby, Coach House is in a prime residential location, just half a mile south of Ross town centre and is thus within easy walk of all town facilities.
Of stone construction under a primarily double pitched slate roof, the accommodation offered has great character, significant evidence both inside and outside the property alluding to its former use. All principal rooms have windows to the south, thus receiving a high degree of natural light.
The most attractive, part walled level garden lies to the north of the property, and extends all the way to the garage which lies close to the northern boundary of the site. Positioned directly in front of the garage is a covered carport beneath double pitched roof. Attractive curving stonework flanks the entrance to the garage and runs alongside Coach Lane.
For those wanting good access to fast communication, the M50 motorway/A40 dual carriageway enables first class access to the national motorway network.
For those who have dogs, one is within several minutes walk of open countryside, whether alongside the banks of the Wye or on the approaches to nearby Chase Hill. In detail the property comprises:
