Notes and Comments:
Situation and Description
This delightful cottage lies in southwest Herefordshire, not far from the popular village of Kingstone which provides an excellent range of local services, including schools, a village shop, doctors’ surgery, public house, church and community centre. More extensive facilities can be found at the cathedral city of Hereford (7 miles) as well as the market towns of Abergavenny, Ross on Wye and Monmouth to the south.
Improved and extended over the years the cottage is full of charm and has well balanced accommodation which benefits from double glazing throughout, electric heating, fitted carpets and an attached one-bedroom annex at one end, ideal for a teenager or elderly relative, or could create an additional income, if required.
Approached from the road by its own driveway, which offers parking for several cars, a porch and front door leads into a welcoming and spacious reception hall/music room and then to a lovely sitting room which enjoys a triple aspect and includes doors to a sun terrace, an open fire for those colder evenings and fitted wall shelving. The kitchen is well appointed with granite working surfaces, plenty of cupboards and drawers, a deep fill sink, and a number of fitted appliances including a Kensington range style cooker. An archway at one end opens into a breakfast area. The ground floor accommodation is supported by a utility room and cloakroom.
On the first floor the main bedroom has a dual aspect and a comfortable en suite bathroom with views over open farmland. There are three further bedrooms and a landing/study area as well as a family shower room.
Adjoining the cottage at one end is a single storey annex, which is a fantastic space, and would be ideal for extra accommodation or could make a useful home office. It currently has a bedroom, living area, bathroom and a small kitchen.
The gardens and orchard extend to about 0.4 of an acre and are well enclosed with steps leading up from a patio to the main lawn and various well stocked borders and an attractive and established ornamental pond. A gate leads into the orchard which has a variety of fruit trees and includes a timber stable and tack room on a concrete base measuring 18’4 x 12’4 overall with power.
