Property SummaryLocated just a 15 minute drive to the West of Monmouth this pair of outstanding, beautifully restored and presented classic barns are set in an idyllic countryside setting with landscaped gardens, pasture land, meandering driveway and ample parking totalling approx. 4.85 acres. The 4 bedroomed main barn has extensive open-plan reception areas while the neighbouring detached 2 bedroom barn is also spacious and ideal for extended family living, holiday let or office complex.
Constructed mainly in stone with double glazed wooden windows under a pitched clay tiled roof on the main barn and slate on the small barn with exposed beams, trusses and original stone and brick features throughout. The properties have been remodelled to the highest of standards with feature oak flooring, marble tiling, contemporary bathrooms and kitchens and down lighters.
