Notes and Comments:

Situation and Description
This delightful cottage occupies a sylvan setting and is one of a small cluster of individual properties that make up the small hamlet of Callow. Its location allows easy access to Hereford, which offers an extensive range of services and a mainline train station, but also to the bustling market towns of Ross on Wye, Monmouth and Abergavenny.

This charming cottage was designed by celebrated architect John Nash, and in parts dates back to the late 18th Century. Full of character, this very pretty cottage has been extended by the present owners and now offers very comfortable four-bedroom accommodation which benefits from oil fired central heating, attractive bay windows, easy access to the gardens and a light and spacious living room that adjoins the kitchen breakfast room. Outside there is plenty of space to explore with 1.8 acres of gardens and grounds, and useful workshops and a studio, that have potential for a variety of uses.

On arrival a small porch and front door opens into a welcoming reception hall with exposed timbering and fitted bookshelves. A door then leads into the sitting room which is full of atmosphere and includes exposed timbers and a fireplace with wood burner, for those colder evenings. The kitchen/ breakfast room is full of light and space with a large bay window at one end which gets the morning sun. From a practical point of view the kitchen area has a twin bowl sink and, plenty of cupboard space.

The living room is also open plan and has double-glazed windows on two sides and double-glazed doors leading out to a sun terrace and the gardens. A rear hall creates space for coats and boots and includes the oil-fired central heating boiler and a door to a separate cloakroom with space for a washing machine.

On the first floor a landing doubles as a study area with vaulted ceiling and fitted bookshelves. There are four very individual bedrooms on this floor, some having vaulted ceilings and bedroom four enjoys stunning rural views over the neighbouring valley. The bedrooms are supported by a bathroom and separate shower room.

Dewsall Lodge is approached from a council road by a driveway which also provides plenty of parking space. A pathway leads to and around the property, which is set in delightful gardens and land which extends to 1.8 acres. Around the house there are terraced lawned areas interspersed with trees, shrubs and floral borders, as well as a flagged patio to the rear and a semi-circular sun terrace at one end. There is also a small ornamental pond together with a meadow, a variety of fruit trees and plenty of space for vegetables, soft fruit, chickens and much more. A short distance from the house is a brick and timber garden store 9’4 x 8’2 and a studio room 12’4 x 8’2, with a larger adjoining timber workshop with windows and doors at either end 24’9 x 15 overall, with power, lighting and solar panels on the roof. In addition, there is a useful greenhouse and a good-sized timber store that provides additional storage. Overall, the land offers lots of space for a growing family and a variety of uses and viewing is strongly recommended.
