Situated on the edge of this popular village and enjoying south facing views, a deceptively spacious dormer bungalow with potential annexe, all set in a large plot extending to 0.6 of an acre.

The rural village of Bishopstone lies in west Herefordshire and has a thriving community with a village hall and nearby church. Facilities are available at the larger village of Credenhill, with a choice of shops, primary school, community centre and restaurant. To the west is the ever popular Oakchurch Farm Shop, which offers an excellent array of merchandise, together with the village of Staunton on Wye which again has an excellent school, public house and doctors surgery. There is a nearby community centre at Bridge Sollars as well as some lovely walks along the Wye Valley. A regular bus service provides easy access to the cathedral city of Hereford.

Bromleigh itself is a well proportioned and deceptively spacious property with three principal bedrooms on the ground floor and a large first floor guest bedroom with en suite shower room. The property benefits from double glazing throughout, oil fired central heating, all fitted carpets, curtain fittings and has the potential to create a separate annexe if required.

Outside, there is good off-road parking as well as an attached single garage and large gardens at the rear which contain a number of very useful garden stores as well as a timber chalet which could be ideal as a home office. There is a raised 5 gauge railway track, which has a length of approximately 200ft and is oval in shape and ideal for a railway enthusiast. There are solar photovoltaic panels on the roof which make the most of the property s orientation and provides power for the property, and benefits from a feed in tariff which at the moment is producing £800-£1,000 per annum.

On arrival, a front door leads into a spacious enclosed entrance porch and in to an inner hallway with door to a good-sized sitting room with fireplace and fitted wood burner. An archway leads through to a dining room, which in turn adjoins a good size farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room with twin-bowl butler sink, a Rangemaster cooker, free standing units and window over-looking the rear gardens. The inner hallway provides access to the three bedrooms and a good-sized separate shower room. A rear lobyy leads through to the potential annexe, currently comprising a hallway, utility room, shower room, purpose-built temperature-controlled wine cellar and door through to a single integral garage with door to front. From the hallway a staircase leads to the first-floor landing with double doors leading onto a small balcony, making the most of the westerly views. There is a large first floor bedroom, with a vaulted ceiling and south facing dormer windows with far reaching views, and an en suite shower room.

The property is approached from a small country lane by wrought iron gates onto a good-sized parking and turning area with gardens to either side. A pathway leads to the rear gardens which are an excellent size, with a good-sized patio area, Mediterranean garden and decking leading to a timber chalet with power and light, which could create an excellent home office 19ft 3 x 13ft. There is a replica signal box which again creates a workshop with lighting and power 11ft 4 x 11ft 5 as well as various other garden stores including a potting shed, Keder greenhouse, 24ft diameter Solar Dome and, unusually, a 5 gauge railway track which is approximately 200ft long. The gardens are well enclosed on all sides.
