Notes and Comments:
Situation and Description
Norton House forms part of the thriving and popular village of Wellington which has an active community and a number of facilities including a primary school, village hall, church, community shop, public house and more. The larger towns of Leominster and Ludlow lie to the north, with the cathedral city of Hereford offering an extensive range of services to the south. Both Leominster and Hereford have a main line train station.
This very attractive red brick house still retains much of its original character and is hidden away in large gardens in the heart of the village. Available for the first time in 50 years the house offers huge potential and would make a wonderful family home with plenty of space both inside and out. It currently benefits from all mains services, with gas fired central heating, two good sized modern bathrooms and a well fitted kitchen.
On arrival a front door leads into a reception hall with polished oak floor, decorative arches and door through to a comfortable sitting room, with fireplace and coal effect gas fire, wall lights and widow overlooking the front gardens.
A separate dining room is ideal for entertaining and again lies at the front of the house with fitted cupboards and door through to a kitchen/breakfast room. This is well fitted with a range of cupboards and appliances including a double oven, hob, extractor, fridge/ freezer and dishwasher. A rear hall gives access to a large, modern shower room, a good-sized utility and to an original cellar which is divided into two main rooms.
From the hall a polished oak staircase leads up to two landings which give access to the two main double bedrooms at the front of the house, both with fitted wardrobes and a central child’s bedroom or box room, which could be converted into an en suite subject to approval. There are then two smaller double rooms and a large modern shower room.
The property is approached from a village lane by wrought iron gates onto its own drive which provides parking space and leads to a detached brick open fronted garage 18’ x 16’ 5, with loft space above. To the rear of the house a covered porch leads to an attached single storey workshop, which was once part of the original property, and may have been a kitchen or laundry at one time. This provides useful additional space and could be incorporated into the main accommodation in some way, subject again to approval.
The gardens and grounds extend to approximately 1 acre and laid mainly to level lawn. They are well enclosed by mature hedging and include a few trees, herbaceous borders and a former part walled kitchen garden. A separate gated entrance at one end of the plot also provides access to the gardens.
Directions From Hereford proceed north on the A49 signposted to Leominster and Shrewsbury. After approximately 6 miles turn left as signposted into Wellington village. Proceed past the church and village shop and continue to the end of the road before bearing round to the left. Continue for a short distance and Norton House will be found on the left-hand side behind laurel hedging.
