Notes and Comments:
Situation and description
The property is very much ‘tucked away’ in the heart of this popular town, and yet is set away from main roads with some rooms enjoying views over the town to open countryside in the distance. An excellent choice of facilities lie within a few minutes’ walk and include schools, a choice of shops, the town church, public houses, a leisure club, cafes, a supermarket and much more. The surrounding area is also renowned for its outstanding natural beauty, lying close to the Welsh Marches and the historic Offas Dyke Path, making the location ideal for keen walkers. Nearby Bradnor Hill is the home to one of the highest golf courses in England and enjoys some spectacular views over the surrounding countryside. More extensive facilities can be found at the Cathedral city of Hereford (20 miles), Leominster (13 miles) and the ever-popular town of Hay on Wye, with its world-famous literary festival (12 miles).
The cottage itself is deceptively spacious and offers very comfortable living accommodation throughout. On arrival a canopy porch and front door lead into a welcoming reception hall with oak flooring and doors to a cosy sitting room which includes a fireplace with fitted wood burner for those colder evenings. A separate dining room is ideal for entertaining and has a dual aspect overlooking the gardens, whilst a practical kitchen/ breakfast room offers plenty of cupboard and working space and again has a dual aspect.
The ground floor is supported by a cloakroom and a useful utility room with direct access to outside, and a wall mounted gas fired boiler which services the domestic hot water and radiators.
On the first floor there are four comfortable bedrooms including a master bedroom with en suite shower room. Some of the bedrooms enjoy far reaching views over the town to countryside beyond, and all benefit from either double or secondary glazed windows. A family bathroom completes the upstairs space.
The property is approached by a small private lane to its own drive which provides parking space for at least two cars. This in turn leads to a very useful detached garage with covered woodstore at the rear. A separate detached home office offers an excellent space in which to work away from the house and measures 10’9 x 10’3 with power and lighting.
The gardens are well enclosed and established, and are laid mainly to lawn, with herbaceous borders, fruit trees and soft fruit bushes. Pathways lead around the property and to a delightful arbour and patio, which creates a lovely space to sit and relax. A private gate gives access to a path that leads down to the High Street. Behind the arbour is a brick garden store.
