Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
Forming part of this popular and well-serviced village, a very pretty Grade II Listed cottage offering huge potential for improvement, together with large gardens and a paddock, in all approximately 1.5 acres. Motivated to sell.

Situation and Description

This pretty detached cottage lies on the southern side of this popular and well-serviced village, with facilities including a shop and post office, primary school, village hall, church, a 9-hole golf course, tennis club, public house and much more. More extensive facilities are available at the cathedral city of Hereford, to the south west and at the market towns of Leominster and Bromyard to the north and east. Originally, almost certainly a small holding, Bower Cottage has been in the same family for over 70 years and is only available due to the owners retirement. It now offers huge potential for modernisation and improvement but is well situated and includes lovely gardens and a large paddock that extends to just over an acre, but offers the potential for a variety of uses.

Initially approached by an owned and partially shared driveway, a front door leads into an enclosed entrance porch with a further door to a reception hall. From here, access can be gained to a sitting room and central living room which is a good size with fireplace and windows overlooking the front gardens. Throughout the house, there is a wealth of exposed timbering and leading from the living room is a galley style kitchen at the rear with walk-way through to utility room or second kitchen with oil fired Rayburn cooker. There is a ground floor bathroom, a side entrance porch and separate wc.

From the reception hall a staircase leads up to a first floor landing with exposed timbering and doors to the three bedrooms with vaulted ceilings.

Outside, the property stands in lawned gardens which have been well stocked and cared for over the years with pathways leading around the property and a variety of herbaceous borders interspersed with shrubs and trees. Attached at the far end of the house is a useful stone store-room which could potentially be incorporated into the living accommodation. The driveway continues to a parking area and to a small barn that provides open garaging (34ft 8 x 17ft 8) with a separate metal garage (16ft 4 x 7ft 10) and a further barn (45ft x 17ft 6). There is access to a paddock which is well enclosed and ideal for keeping a pony, or a small head of stock.
