The Property - Occupying an idyllic position on the slopes of Caer Caradoc you will find this beautiful cottage. Small but perfectly formed, Caradoc Cottage gives you the rare opportunity to purchase a truly secluded property, from where you can really 'get away from it all'. At the end of an unmade, 1/2 mile lane you will find a wooden five bar gate which opens up to, what could be your very own, slice of paradise. The first thing you will notice are the breathtaking views, rolling hills and patchwork fields as far as the eye can see. To the rear the mighty Caer Caradoc stands protectively over the property and slightly further north the Lawley descends into the distance. For sheer peace, tranquility and amazing views this property will not be beaten.

With the position being so incredible the cottage almost gets forgotten about, that is until you step inside to be seduced by its charms. Firstly you will be greeted by the kitchen, with its brick laid floor, wooden cupboards and original fire recess which now houses the 'Lacanche' double width calor gas stove you instantly warm to its character. The living room is a good size and the exposed beams and timbers will give you some indication of its 17th century origins. The focal point of the room, if you do not count the stunning views from the windows, is the period inglenook fire place which has an inset log burner and back boiler. From the living room a spiral staircase ascends to the double bedroom on the first floor. A lovely light, bright room with a velux window looking out to the distance, exposed beams again adorn the room giving you that comforting feeling of history and homeliness. Completing the cottage is the bathroom, which has fitted carpet, a window, a Velux sky window and a white suite comprising of a panelled bath with a hand shower, a wash basin, a low level WC and a recessed fully tiled shower.

Outside you will find approximately an acre of ground which may get you thinking there is room to extend the cottage, you would be right, it has planning consent to almost triple the size. Do not be fooled into thinking this is essential though as the cottage itself is larger than it may first appear, in addition to the cottage there is a timber built chalet which could easily provide further accommodation should it be required.

Caradoc Cottage really does have everything you need and more, do not just take our word for it though, book a viewing and see for yourself. We are sure you will not be disappointed.
