Overview - Well what is there not to say about Well House! A truly magnificent, fully refurbished detached cottage found on the very edge of the popular village of Lingen which lies on the rural Herefordshire/Shropshire border and sits in approximately 0.5 acres of landscaped gardens and enjoys fantastic distant views across the adjoining open countryside.

Built originally as two separate cottages circa 1900's and converted into one in the early 70's this fabulous property has beautifully renovated to an extremely high standard by the current owner over the past 3 years leaving quite literally no stone left un-turned. Having every last detail either renewed or upgraded from what was previously a very tired and dated house this stunning dwelling has had a complete overhaul from the central heating to the kitchen and from the windows and doors to the electrics and damp proof course, everything has received attention. The quality certainly does not finish inside with the vendor purchasing an additional parcel of ground to extended the boundary and building an eye-catching triple bay oak framed garage under a slate roof (8.8m x 6.1m) which has a highly useful, multi-purpose room above spanning the entire width of the building. The gardens are largely laid to lawn except for a feature paved, private patio area which overlooks the Lime Brook and fields beyond. A perfect entertaining/relaxing spot within those warmer months of the year!

As mentioned the property is conveniently situated right on the edge of the popular rural village of Lingen which boasts a close knit community and centres around the village pub, The Royal George! Rural, but by no means isolated the village is centrally located just 5 miles from the popular market town of Presteigne, 9 miles from the border town of Knighton and 4 miles from the much larger and historic village of Wigmore. Slightly further afield Ludlow is 16 miles to the east.

Offering the peace and tranquillity so many of us desire, Well House could be just what you are looking for if distant views, natural wildlife, beautiful countryside and rolling hill tops as far as the eye can see is what your after. A real show-stopper of a property which any new owner would be proud to call home, Well House is ready for the new occupiers to simply move in the furniture and personal belongings, put their feet up and sit back and enjoy the laid back lifestyle this wonderful dwelling offers. A must view in our eyes!

The Property - Approached from the road, through front entrance gates and over the gravelled drive a paved path leads to the oak framed storm porch which provides cover to oak front door. Inside the entrance room offers oak veneered flooring which leads right into the kitchen diner and left into the utility room. Moving frontwards the oak veneered flooring soon turns into carpet and the room becomes a delightful sitting room with a stairwell off leading to the first floor accommodation, a window to the side and a feature fireplace with a insert wood burning stove. Asides to the kitchen diner and utility, separate doors from the sitting room open into the rear living room, a useful understair storage cupboard and an airing/storage cupboard housing the Santon pressurised cylinder. The utility room also poses as useful downstairs toilet and is installed with a w.c, wash basin and fitted worktop with space and plumbing underneath for a washing machine and tumble dryer. The utility has a window to front and also the wall mounted 'Worcester' combination boiler. The kitchen diner is the central hub of the house and oozes quality once more! The kitchen area is installed with matching wall and base cupboards and a breakfast island with fitted granite worktops over and an insert ceramic sink and drainer. Integrated appliances include a dishwasher, fridge, electric double oven, four ring gas hob and extractor hood above.

From the roadside, front entrance gates allow access across the gravelled driveway which leads down through the front gardens and to the large parking area at the side and rear of the house. Found at the bottom of the drive is the impressive oak framed triple bay garage (8.8m x 6.1m) which has external stairs rising up along the right side of the building to a useful, multi-purpose room which spans the entire width of the garage. A superb potential office space or perhaps more simply a storage area (8.8m x 4.5m). Located behind the house and along the left boundary is a handy log-store, and a separate secure workshop, while a wooden fence hides the newly installed LPG tank which serves the property. The gardens are mainly south and east facing and overall have well-defined fenced and hedged boundaries and are an ideal size for children or pets to run around in investigate the brook. The signature feature to this already superb garden is the paved private patio seating area, complete with electricity points for a small fridge and lighting which overlooks the brook and enjoys the beautiful backdrop of the adjoining countryside. A perfect place to relax or entertain on within the warmer months of the year. A further paved patio area is located alongside the cottage which has French doors leading off directly into the kitchen diner.
