Introduction - This Victorian detached cottage is located in a wonderfully rural spot yet only 1 mile from Leominster town centre and provides an opportunity to acquire a type of property which is becoming more and more rare. Although requiring modernisation and updating the property is perfectly habitable. It has decent room sizes but does lend itself for further extension (STP) and would be a lovely rural retreat. Especially with the added benefit of the garden, orchard and paddock which in all extend to approximately 1.6 acres.

Property Description - The cottage sits to the front of its plot facing in towards the gardens; From the gate a path leads around to the front large entrance porch. Once inside you are in to the first reception room which has a recessed chimney and oil fired stove which heats the radiators. The kitchen is adjoining and has a range of wall and base units and built in oven & hob. The main room is a good size with dual aspect windows and fireplace. On the first floor are three good size bedrooms and bathroom.

Accessed externally and attached to the side is a large brick built shed to the right and a timber shed to the left. These offer potential for creating additional residential accommodation (STP).

There are double wrought iron gates which provide off road parking.

Garden, Orchard And Paddock - The main garden extends for 0.2 acres which is laid to lawn and evidence of a once productive and fertile vegetable garden along with some fruit trees including plums, apples and pears and soft fruit bushes and enclosed by natural hedgerows. Located on the site are a variety of timber sheds including a large garage type store, greenhouse and brick built animal shelter. The orchard to the rear also extends for 0.2 acres and the main paddock has been measured to 1.2 acres. This has been grazed in the past but more recently grown and cut for hay by the adjacent farmer although there is no legal contract or tenancy.
