Situation Fir Tree Cottage sits within the popular, semi-rural village of Bromsberrow Heath, an area surrounded by farmland and picturesque countryside. Located off the A417 some four miles south of the historic market town of Ledbury and close to junction 2 of the M50, it is conveniently placed for excellent access to the principal regional towns and cities and the main arterial communication links.

Fir Tree Cottage * A lovely, period (but not Listed) cottage situated in this popular village with excellent access to the main arterial roads. The cottage has retained some of its character including some stripped pine doors, some of the original stripped floorboards and a quarry tiled floor in the kitchen.

* The entrance hallway offers plenty of space for shoes and coats and gives access to the good-sized kitchen/dining room.

* The kitchen benefits from fitted oak cupboards, and is complemented with an integrated electric oven and gas hob. There is also space and plumbing for a dishwasher. A useful pantry cupboard provides further storage and offers space and plumbing for a washing machine. The dining area has a fireplace that could take a wood-burning stove if desired.

Fir Tree Cottage (Continued) * A rear hallway/study area is situated off the kitchen with a turned staircase to the first floor and patio doors leading out in the garden. A door off also gives access to the cosy sitting room with a Clearview wood-burning stove. A good-sized bathroom completes the downstairs accommodation with a free-standing roll top bath and a separate shower.

* On the first floor, a small landing gives access to a restricted head height dressing room with built-in cupboards, a W.C which has restricted head height and 2/3 bedrooms.

* One of these bedrooms leads off from another but a hallway could easily be created to divide these rooms if required. All the bedrooms would be double bedrooms with the main and second bedrooms having feature period fireplaces.

The Outside * To the side of the property is ample off-road parking for 3 cars with a gate giving access to the rear garden where there is space for another car if required.

* Adjoined to the side of the cottage is a good-sized storeroom, useful for garden tools and the mower, and there is an enclosed area of lawned garden and a small, decked area adjacent to the house. The remainder of the garden at the rear is laid to lawn, contains a small wildlife pond, trees, shrubs, and a lovely summerhouse.

* Nearby (about 2 miles) there is also a 4½ acre paddock that can be purchased by separate negotiation. This has excellent road access, is gently sloping, well fenced and contains 3 useful field shelters.

* There is also the opportunity to buy a small piece of land at the rear of the property that could (subject to PP) provide an additional rear access/garden extension.
