Fair Mile, Herefordshire
Full of character
Landscaped gardens and spinney
Approx 1.3 acres
Double garage/ workshop
This delightful, 3-bedroom cottage sits at the end of a tranquil, no-through lane amidst approx 1.3 acres (TBV) of landscaped gardens and spinney. With a small cluster of neighbours nearby, this peaceful location serves up the perfect mix of rural life yet without isolation.
The cottage accommodation can be accessed via a choice of two porches, to the front and rear. The front porch enters into a tiled hallway, leading through double doors to the sitting room: a pretty room featuring exposed timber beams, an original stone fireplace housing a wood burning stove, and dual-aspect windows, making for a light space all year round. One of the windows also features a window seat, a great spot to look out over the gardens. A further door accesses the boiler room and home office.
The cosy, cottage-style kitchen was hand-crafted by the previous owners and has been updated with all the modern appliances of a contemporary kitchen to offer that perfect mix of character and convenience. Solid oak worktops and that most aspirational focal-point of all rural kitchens: a centre AGA, create the archetypal country image.
A stable door leads out to the rear porch.
The dinning room is directly linked to the kitchen making it a great space to entertain or keep an eye on younger ones whilst food is being prepared. A large window frames a view of the front garden, giving you an ever-changing outlook throughout the year. A decorative cast iron and pine fire place sits on one wall, creating a pretty focal point.
On the first floor, a spacious landing with window overlooks the front garden with a small set of steps leading to the bedrooms. There is a choice of master bedroom as two of the bedrooms are very generously-sized for a cottage of this period. The bathroom has been very recently renovated with a stylish design featuring a Heritage bathroom suite and porcelain floor tiles.
A third bedroom completes the upstairs accommodation.
Outside: The outside space really is a highlight of the property: sitting in the centre of landscaped gardens and a spinney: a mix of Oak, Ash, Beech, Sweet Chestnut and Field Maple along with ornamental trees such as Larch, Acai and Weeping Blue Cedar. The pretty woodland garden evolves throughout the year: stunning in Spring with blankets of Snowdrops, Bluebells and Daffodils and then with the well-stocked cottage –style borders coming into their own in the summer months producing a bright display of flowers. A further lawn sweeps around to the front and rear with cottage style borders giving a great show throughout the year.
There is a large, double garage/ workshop with electric and useful lean-to for keeping all your nick-knacks to hand. There is ample parking around the plot and a post and rail fenced woodland enclosure and chicken pen.
Area: Fair Mile is a pretty area in the midst of rural Herefordshire with plenty of lovely walking opportunities on the doorstep.
