Situation and Description
The thriving village of Eardisley lies in west Herefordshire and has been a sought-after location for many buyers over the years. Well serviced with an excellent village store, two public houses, a tennis and croquet club, primary school, hairdressers, community hall and church; Eardisley offers village life at its best. More extensive facilities can be found at the Cathedral City of Hereford (14 miles) or the market towns of Kington (5 miles), Leominster (14 miles) and Hay on Wye (8 miles), which offers a gateway to the Black Mountains and hosts the now world famous annual literary festival.
Hawthorn Cottage itself is a historic Grade II listed house in the centre of the village and was once the local post office. Now a very comfortable home it retains much of its original character and can still be easily divided to create two dwellings making it ideal for dual family living or giving the option to create a holiday let or rental. The principal rooms are bright and spacious with bifold doors at the rear opening out into the delightful west facing gardens. Much of the cottage has been improved in recent years, whilst retaining the original character, with exposed beams, original floorboards and stone fireplaces.
On arrival a front porch opens into a good-sized sitting room with a large stone fireplace with fitted wood burner for those colder evenings plus an old bread oven. The kitchen/breakfast room and dining room create a large and bright open plan living area which is full of light and space with bifold doors to outside. On the first floor there are two comfortable double bedrooms, which are supported by a family bathroom and a large landing which doubles as a study area.
The adjoining post office is at present self-contained and is used as a separate annex but has an interconnecting doorway on the ground floor which is currently blocked off with a timber and plasterboard partition but could easily be reopened to join both halves of the building. The accommodation offers a further two bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor as well as its own kitchen, living room and garden room on the ground floor.
Approached from the village road by its own driveway, Hawthorn Cottage stands in a generous plot which sweeps away from the property at the rear. The gardens are well stocked and form a particular feature with plenty of colour during the year. The drive leads to a rear parking and turning area where there is a double garage with power and lighting 20’x15’5, a number of garden stores and a workshop/ potential home office 17’9 x 11’ with decking and lovely views over open farmland.
At present the Old Post Office has its own small garden area at the rear and off-road parking to the front, but could easily be incorporated into the main cottage.
