Sale particulars for Long Barn were issued by the agent, Brightwells Property.



The overall description given in the particulars is as follows:


The Long Barn Michaelchurch Escley, Herefordshire HR2 OJW


In a simply stunning rural location with no immediate neighbours and extensive southerly views over the surrounding countryside to the Black Mountains in the distance, a detached Grade II Listed barn conversion with a large stone cottage and approximately 5.5 acres of grounds and land.

The Long Barn is Grade II Listed and sits on its own with uninterrupted southerly views of the surrounding countryside. It forms part of the small rural village of Michaelchurch Escley which has a village church, public house, village hall and primary school. It is then supported by the larger villages of Peterchurch, Longtown and Ewyas Harold with more extensive facilities at the market town of Hay on Wye with its world renowned literary festival, the towns of Monmouth, Abergavenny and Ross together with the cathedral city of Hereford.

The barn has been beautifully and sympathetically converted and offers very comfortable two/three bedroomed living accommodation with a large farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room and lovely drawing room. In addition there is an original unlisted stone farmhouse which has also been sympathetically converted and is ideal as a holiday cottage or provides ancillary accommodation if required. Both properties enjoy an idyllic setting and sit in gardens and grounds which benefit from a peaceful and private setting and with grounds extending to approximately 5 acres with a large meadow to the front which runs down to a small stream. Locations such as this in our view are increasingly rare.


Full particulars including detailed descriptions of the accommodation, a selection of photographs and the floor plans can be downloaded here in PDF file format.
