A charming cottage located in the sought after village of Little Birch. The property is full of character with some beautiful, south-facing elevated gardens featuring a range of herbaceous plants and flowers. It has great potential to be a lovely cosy cottage in this peaceful location.

 

Situation

 

The cottage is located in the picturesque and sought after village of Little Birch with its own church and inn. A stone’s throw away is the public house ‘The Castle Inn’, and nearby are the villages of Much Birch, with doctor’s surgery, and Little Dewchurch, both with primary schooling, public house and bus services. In Little Dewchurch there is a village hall and some fantastic countryside walks.

 

Approximately 8 miles north is the Cathedral city of Hereford offering a variety of amenities such as supermarkets, doctor’s surgeries, gymnasium and leisure centre. The cottage has easy access to the market town of Ross-on-Wye and has good road connections to the M50 and the M4 at Newport.

 

Description

 

The property is fronted by a tarmac driveway offering off-street parking for two vehicles with a large double garage having pitched roof and electricity supply. It offers further secure storage and parking.

 

The main residence is approached by a paved pathway up to the front patio and Entrance Porch. It makes a lovely space for outside dining overlooking the gardens.

 

The gardens offer a plethora of features and ornaments with water supply, together with an old stone outbuilding. The extensive, south-facing gardens have solar panels which provide a rateable return into the grid (the rate of return would have to be set up by the new owner). There are verdant lawns, areas for plants and vegetables, and herbaceous borders. Steps lead up to further gardens with large laid lawns. It would make a wonderful garden for passionate gardeners and is surrounded by borders offering privacy.  

 

The Kitchen has a range of matching base units, drawers, and wall cupboards, single sink and drainer with mixer tap over and electric oven. The Living Room is a light space with character beams and sliding doors that open up onto the patio.

 

The Utility Room houses the Worcester oil fired central heating boiler and offers a good space for extra storage and potentially white goods.

 

On the first floor is a full bathroom suite with bath and shower, wash hand basin and WC. Bedroom 1 has wardrobes with cupboards above, providing a great storage space. Bedroom 2 also has ample storage in the form of built in wardrobes with sliding doors.

 

The cottage lends itself to further development (subject to planning permission) to make three or four bedroom accommodation, and benefits from double glazing throughout the majority of the property. It offers a wonderful foundation for making into an idyllic country home.

 

Agent’s note: The greenhouse and one garden shed are not to be included in the sale.
