Property Details

Chancellors are delighted to introduce these well presented two detached properties located within the desirable village of Monkland. The main house was originally built in 1862 by the vicar of Monkland as two cottages for the church's organist and the vicar's coachman, and has a lot of original features. In the 1920's the main house was converted into one house and the adjoining barn was converted into a detached annex, which was then extended in the 1950's to give the current set up of a 3 bedroomed house with a self-contained flat. The properties are currently being used as four self-contained dwellings, however they can easily be converted back into two separate dwellings.

The site has the benefit of being on the main A44 with easy access to Leominster, Hereford and Wales, but also being surrounded by countryside, with lovely walks in all directions. With the ample grounds it is a perfect spot for dog owners. Monkland is a vibrant community with village pub, well known cheese shop and cafe, church and village hall with various activities.

Upon entering the main house through the enclosed oak porch, you are welcomed into the entrance hall which gives you access to the first floor, and the living areas. The ground floor comprises of a living room with log burner and a bay window with a window seat and storage beneath; A separate dining room which can be accessed from the hallway or through double doors from the living room. The dining room boasts an open fire, which was bricked up in the 1940's but has an inglenook fire place behind. The kitchen is adjoined by the breakfast room which has space for a table and chairs. The kitchen also gives you access to the rear porch, which leads into the gardens.

The first floor includes three double bedrooms, which are serviced by the family bathroom. The master bedroom, has a cloakroom fitted with WC and basin. The master bedroom has views across the Black Mountains, all other bedrooms offer various countryside views.

The other side of the main house, accessed through doors on the ground floor and the first floor, includes a kitchen/diner, separate living room with electric fire (there is an open fireplace behind which could be opened up), one double bedroom on the first floor and a family bathroom.

The main house could therefore be used as a four bedroom detached house, or a three bedroomed semi detached house with a one bedroom self-contained annexe.

Accessing the second property, the annexe through a porch fitted with extra storage space, you are welcomed into the hallway with original parquet flooring throughout. The hallway leads into the living room with log burner and the conservatory. Opposite the living room is the downstairs double bedroom with an ensuite wet-room providing age proof living. The annex comes equipped with a kitchen, utility room and pantry. The first floor provides two further double bedrooms, both with built in wardrobes and a family bathroom.

The one bedroom flat can be accessed from the first floor of the annex, or via a separate entrance from the courtyard. The current flat layout includes a living room, kitchen, double bedroom with built in wardrobes and a family bathroom. The flat could easily be included with the annex to provide further bedrooms.

Externally, the property plot size is approx. 3⁄4 of an acre, providing private driveway parking for multiple vehicles and wrap around gardens for both properties. The garden space allows each dwelling to have separate gardens or could be used as one. The walled garden boasts a well established fruit garden including apple trees, fig trees, pear tree, plum tree, raspberry and blackcurrant bushes and rhubarb.

The property includes two garages with lighting and power and multiple outbuildings including the original washhouse and previous stables which are currently used for extra storage space.

The site has huge possibilities for a variety of purposes, including multi generational living and income generation through such as bed and breakfast, airbnb, holiday or long term letting of parts of the site, or running a business from home. The site also has scope for being separated, subject to planning permission.
