Notes and Comments:
Situation and Description
This interesting property lies on the northern side of the attractive village of Sutton St Nicholas which itself is a thriving village with a popular primary school, a village hall, public house, church and a regular bus service to and from the cathedral city of Hereford, which lies some 3 miles away.
Originally a small farm, the property has been extended and subdivided over the years to create two semi-detached cottages with no. 1 Frankhurst offering huge potential for improvement and development. There are two small barns, former gardens, which are a good size, all of which extends to just over 1/2 an acre. The house currently benefits from oil fired central heating and offers excellent living space with a large sitting room and a number of period features. Now requiring modernisation, it offers huge potential, in our view.
Initially approached by a shared private driveway, a gate leads to a parking and turning area to one side and a porch and door to the front lead into a reception hall. From here access can be gained to a large sitting room, with sash window, a fireplace and double doors opening to the garden.. There is a separate dining room with a brick fireplace and a rear entrance porch, off which is a kitchen, a walk-in pantry and a good sized utility room/cloakroom.
On the first floor, the landing has a sash window overlooking the drive and provides access to three main bedrooms, a study or fourth bedroom, a shower room and separate wc.
The property stands in attractive grounds, which have fallen into disrepair in recent years, but offer huge potential to provide once again a very attractive garden. There is a courtyard of buildings, which although small, offer a potential for a variety of uses. These comprise a traditional two storey cider barn and a smaller single storey workshop and store.
Outbuildings: May not be in a stable condition and entry should be taken with caution.
From Hereford proceed out of the city on the A465 towards Worcester. At the bottom of Aylestone Hill proceed straight over the roundabout towards Sutton St Nicholas and Bodenham. Continue for approximately 3 miles, passing through the village of Sutton St Nicholas and after leaving the village continue for a further 1/4 of a mile and the entrance to the property will be found on the right hand side, just before a cluster of cottages. Continue along the long drive and no. 1 is the property on the right.

Important Agents note :
1.Please note both 1 & 2 Frankhurst will have a restrictive covenant to be the sole dwelling house on each of their respective plots.

3. The current private drainage system is located in land that will belong to 2 Frankhurst and therefore the buyer of 1 Frankhurst will need to create a separate drainage arrangement within 1 year of completion.
