LOCATION - Dilwyn is a sought after small village with Church, public house, village hall and school. A wide range of country walks are available on the doorstep and the larger village of Weobley is approximately one mile away with an exceptional wide range of services including doctor's surgery, shops, tea rooms, restaurants, post office, dentist and both primary and secondary school.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION - Blossom Cottage forms a part of a small development of just two houses in a secluded position on the fringe of the village, having been designed and built by Border Oak. The property offers an opportunity for somebody to purchase a unique and individual new home. The property is approached via a flagged stone pathway from the driveway to the oak framed canopy style porch over the front door which opens to a spacious reception hallway which opens through to the lovely light kitchen/dining room with limestone flooring throughout. The kitchen itself comprises a handmade painted bespoke kitchen by local firm Russell Alexander and offers a comprehensive range of matching units with quartz work surfaces over with inset ceramic double sink and a range of fitted appliances to include fridge and separate freezer, dishwasher and electric induction hob with matching electric oven and grill below and extractor hood above. There is an additional large pantry style cupboard, exposed oak timbers with the room then opening up to the family dining area with double-glazed French doors opening out to the private patio and gardens to the rear. Off the kitchen, a door leads through to the utility room which has a further range of handmade units with solid wood work surfaces and Belfast style sink, space and plumbing for washing machine and cupboard housing the hot water cylinder with double-glazed door opening out, to the gardens to the rear, and a door also leading to a good sized downstairs cloakroom/w.c. Also leading off the hallway is the family sitting room with feature inglenook style brick fireplace with oak wooden lintel above and raised flagged hearth. There are oak floorboards throughout and further exposed oak timbering with double-glazed French doors, opening to the gardens to the rear.
- A staircase from the hallway with useful under stairs storage cupboard leads up to the galleried landing with doors then leading off to the master bedroom, a good sized double bedroom with exposed oak timbering, double-glazed windows to two elevations and door to a well appointed en-suite shower room. There are two further bedrooms to the first floor and family bathroom, again well fitted with panelled bath with separate mains shower over, low flush w.c. and hand wash basin.
