Location & DescriptionAshgrove is set in an elevated part of Symonds Yat West in the heart of the Wye Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and hence enjoys some fantastic views across the valley with beautiful farmland, countryside and wooded hills.

For a position so idyllic, the property is just a couple of minutes drive from the A40 dual carriageway leading in one direction into Wales and the other the M50 and the Midlands giving first class access to many locations.

The house itself offers a lot of living space with some lovely features. 24’ Kitchen/Dining room for cooking whilst entertaining or keeping an eye on the family, 24’ Sitting Room with large bow window and attractive fireplace and 19’ Bedroom with direct access out onto the Roof Terrace where you can enjoy a leisurely breakfast. Add into the equation the “Tea Rooms” as a most useful outbuilding and this property really does offer a lot for a potential purchaser.

For those interested we would highly recommend a thorough internal inspection of what is, a slightly deceptive property from the exterior.
