Location & Description:
Tara enjoys a lovely position in the village of Cradley on the border of Herefordshire and Worcestershire. The property is strategically well placed for access to a number of major centres including the city of Worcester (ten miles), Hereford (sixteen miles), Malvern (five miles) and Ledbury (seven miles). Cradley itself is highly regarded and well served with local amenities including a Doctor's Surgery, a butcher's shop, church and primary school.
The Malvern Hills are less than five minutes drive away. In Malvern itself there is a comprehensive range of facilities including Waitrose supermarket, shops and banks, the renowned theatre and cinema complex and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium. Malvern also has two railway stations and Junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester is only about ten miles away.
Tara was originally constructed in 1968 and is a traditionally built detached bungalow offering generous and versatile family accommodation which has been extended. The property sits comfortably within its generous garden lying mainly to the front and rear of the property. One of the great strengths of Tara is its lovely setting in an exclusive tree lined cul-de-sac that serves just half a dozen homes and enjoys a lovely backdrop. The approach to the bungalow is across a long tarmac driveway which provides ample parking for several vehicles and is flanked on both sides by lawn and mature specimen trees. The driveway continues to the side of the property giving access to the double garage with an electrically operated roller shutter door. Beyond double gates lead to a paved area which could be used for extra parking.
The living accommodation offers a versatile and spacious environment and has been well presented and maintained by the current owners. The current accommodation benefits from oil fired central heating, double glazing, UPVC soffits and barge boards and enjoys super views over the generous and landscaped grounds which amount to slightly less than half an acre.
