Notes and Comments:

The very desirable village of Dorstone lies in the heart of the Golden Valley and is surrounded by picturesque countryside. The village has a thriving community centred around the village church with a cricket club, a public house and village hall. Further facilities are available at Peterchurch which includes the well-regarded Fairfield school. More extensive facilities are available at Hereford and the ever-popular market town of Hay on Wye.

The Palace is a lovely period cottage which has been much improved by the current owners and now offers very comfortable living accommodation which benefits from oil fired central heating, a wealth of character features, including a large inglenook fireplace, an outdoor kitchen ideal for entertaining, and a modern steel framed timber garage /workshop.

Approached initially from a small lane and then by its own drive, an oak front door leads into a good-sized kitchen/ breakfast room with windows to the front and rear, a range of fitted units, a deep fill sink, built in dishwasher, understairs storage cupboard and door through to sitting room. This room is a good size and features a flag stoned floor, an original inglenook fireplace with fitted wood burner, exposed timbers and double-glazed windows to front and rear.

From the kitchen a door leads through to a side entrance hall with fitted airing cupboard and door to a well-appointed shower room with twin circular wash basins with drawers below, shower cubicle, wc and ladder radiator. A rear glazed porch doubles as utility space and has worktop space as well as plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer, fitted oil fired central heating boiler and glazed door to gardens.

From the sitting room an enclosed elm staircase leads up to the first-floor landing with window overlooking the rear gardens and door to under eaves storage space. The main bedroom is a good size and has a vaulted ceiling, fitted carpet, windows to front and rear, fitted cupboard and low access through to a cot/study room which also has a vaulted ceiling and window to side. Bedroom two has a dual aspect, fitted carpet and vaulted ceiling. In addition, and approached from the front of the cottage by an oak door, a storeroom offers additional space and has a window to one side and could have a former doorway re-opened into the sitting room, if required.

The property is approached from a small lane by its own drive which provides parking space for at least 4-5 cars and to a modern steel framed timber garage/workshop 19ft5 x 15ft10 with double doors to front, door to side, concrete floor, plenty of power points and wood store attached at the rear. The main gardens lie to the rear and are well enclosed and laid to lawn with a cold tap, outdoor kitchen in one corner with covered space 13ft7 x 6ft, with pizza oven.
