BRIEF DESCRIPTION

This charming property is nestled within its own beautiful and mature gardens and grounds which extends to over 2 acres and is a mecca for wildlife and goes a long way to being energy self-sufficient, through solar panels on the house producing hot water, solar cells on the barn producing a tariff worth £2,000 per annum and a woodland producing over half the wood for the two log burners.

The property itself comprises a traditional cottage which has been sympathetically extended to offer spacious accommodation set over two floors. An enclosed porch to the front elevation leads through to the family living room which forms part of the original property and features an impressive stone inglenook style fireplace with stone hearth, wooden lintel and inset Clearview stove and a display recess to the side, where the original bread oven would have been located. The kitchen leads off and includes a range of matching base and wall units with integrated fridge and freezer, breakfast bar, ample work surfaces, inset sink, tiled splash backs and planned space for range style cooker and further space and plumbing for washing machine and dishwasher. The room opens through to a large family dining room which is lovely and light, overlooking the gardens, has exposed stone walling, a high ceiling and door leading off to the rear hallway/boot room, with a door out to the driveway and gardens.

A further door from the living room leads through to a spacious inner hallway with useful storage cupboards and continues through to a sitting room/study providing further living space with doors leading through to a large garden room which overlooks the gardens and woodlands and features a wood burning stove. There are two bedrooms off the inner hallway and large family bathroom which boasts underfloor heating and includes a panelled bath, separate large shower cubicle, low flush w/c and hand wash basin.

A staircase from the living room leads up to the first floor landing with doors off to all rooms. The principal bedroom is a generous room which overlooks the gardens and has a useful linen cupboard off, which houses the hot water cylinder. There is a further bedroom on the first floor and bathroom which includes a panelled bath, low flush w/c and hand wash basin.

In this truly unique position, the property sits within 2 ACRES of the most beautiful gardens and grounds and overlooks some of the most picturesque north Herefordshire countryside.

OUTBUILDING

The property benefits from a substantial detached barn/outbuilding with gravelled yard area to the front. The main barn has double opening doors, power and lighting and provides a secure workshop/storage area but also incorporates a kitchenette/wet room on the ground floor and staircase to the first floor office room and could offer potential to create further residential accommodation/annexe/holiday let, subject to the appropriate planning approval.
