  • Bedrooms: 3
Delightful semi-detached Victorian cottage in a quiet rural location with beautiful views, 1 mile from Hereford with 3 bedrooms, 2 reception rooms, fitted kitchen, garage and lovely gardens. A rural gem with easy city access.

Sycamore View is approached about 150 yards over an unmade private road off Haywood Lane, and enjoys a superb and completely unspoilt position in beautiful rural surroundings. The cottage is one of a small cluster of properties fronting the lane and enjoys outstanding views with an open outlook towards Jubilee Park and Merryhill Ponds. Although the cottage occupies a lovely rural location, there is easy access to Hereford, which is less than a mile distant. A wide range of city amenities are easily accessible including Tesco's supermarket in Belmont, bus service, schools, shops and stores.

The cottage, which is built of brick under a slate roof, dates from the late Victorian period and has been substantially extended, modernised and updated in recent years. These improvements have been sympathetically carried out so as to retain many period features which combine with high quality fittings to provide a comfortable family home. The property has the benefit of gas-fired central heating, double-glazed windows, fitted carpets and quality floor coverings to the principal rooms.
