Both Hereford and Ross provide an excellent range of facilities including a main line train station at Hereford. Much Birch benefits from an hourly bus service to both Hereford and Ross on Wye. The reputable Steiner Academy at Much Dewchurch is situated only a few miles away. There are a number of footpaths and byways for walking on the doorstep together with public access to Duchy woodland. The village of Much Birch includes a Doctors Surgery and Pharmacy, village school, village pub, parish church, community hall and The Pilgrim Hotel. A diverse range of clubs and societies meet in the locality for example, bridge, ‘Flicks in the Sticks’ and a monthly community café, a gardening club, Pilates, to name but a few. A local shop can be found in the nearby village of Wormelow, a garage and the well-known interiors store ‘Simply Stunning’ and its café.
The Cottage was part of an exclusive development by Perfection Homes; and was converted in 2012 along with the Farmhouse and other buildings. It now forms part of a gated development and is approached via a long drive and offers very comfortable two bedroom living accommodation which retains plenty of character whilst benefiting from an air source heat pump, under floor heating, double glazing, enclosed and private gardens around the house and an open fronted double garage. A short distance away from the property is a small orchard with a variety of fruit trees which includes a small but productive vineyard.
From the driveway the property is approached by a gravel path and then by its own gated entrance into the gardens, as stable door then leads into a very comfortable cosy living room with engineered oak flooring, windows to rear, freestanding wood burner at one end, wall lights, under stairs storage cupboard and door to cloakroom. Glazed double doors then lead into a well-appointed kitchen/breakfast room with slate tiled floor, wooden working surfaces, a range of fitted cupboards, built in dishwasher, single drainer sink and glazed door to covered porch and useful utility, space for plumbing for washing machine and tumble dryer, working surfaces, central heated boiler, radiator and drying rail. From the living room an oak staircase leads up to a half landing with fitted carpet, built in airing cupboard with slatted shelving, exposed timbering and staircases at either end that lead up to two double bedrooms both with their own individual character as well as fitted wardrobes, roof lights and exposed timbering. The two bedrooms are then supported by a good-sized bathroom which includes a deep filled bath, with shower mixer over, separate shower cubicle, wash hand basin and WC.
The property is well enclosed on all sides with an attractive garden area to the front which is laid to lawn with a pathway leading to the front door. There are various trees and shrubs such as silver birch, lilac, ornamental pear, holly, buddleia, viburnum, hydrangeas, wisteria, Virginia creeper and floral borders with lavender, a number of David Austin roses and so on. The path also leads to the rear courtyard gardens which are stoned and paved for easy use with decorative borders, exterior lighting, and a cold tap.
The Cottage is approached from the main road by a gated entrance, a long driveway which leads down to a parking and turning area with visitor parking and a garage block which includes an open front double garage with concrete floor, power points and lighting providing excellent covered space and measuring 19’ x 17’. The driveway also passes a private orchard owned by The Cottage which is a delightful addition to this lovely property and is well stocked with a variety of fruit trees including apple, quince, pear, crab apple and some soft fruit. At one end there is a small vineyard which has fifty vines, and we understand from the owner last season produced over one hundred and fifty bottles of rose wine.
