Lane Gate Cottage is situated on the edge of the National Trust controlled Bircher Common, with access to delightful countryside walks, open hillside and woodland, the Mortimer Trail and nearby Croft Ambrey Hill Fort and Castle on the borders of North Herefordshire and South Shropshire. Whilst being easily accessible to the market towns of Leominster and Ludlow, the property is also close to the villages of Yarpole and Orleton which have good village facilities available.


This well-presented and spacious detached bungalow is approached via the driveway to a double-glazed front door opening to a spacious reception hallway with doors then leading off to the family living room. A lovely light and airy room with double-glazed windows to three aspects, and forming a lovely central feature to the room is a clear view stove set on a raised flagged hearth. Also off the reception hallway is a latched door to a good sized dining room with double-glazed window looking out onto Bircher Common and attractive exposed stone wall and wood-effect flooring with an archway then leading through to the kitchen. The kitchen itself again has dual aspect and a comprehensive range of matching base and wall units with rolled edge work surfaces to the base units, inset sink with double-glazed window above looking out to the Common. There is an integrated slimline dishwasher, planned space for a cooker with extractor hood above and further space for a fridge and freezer. The room offers ample space for a breakfast table and has a door giving access to the rear elevation and a further door leading to a useful utility/pantry with plumbing for washing machine. Leading off the kitchen is a good sized lobby with a comprehensive range of built-in wardrobes/cupboard storage including linen cupboard with radiator and a glazed door then leading through to the large conservatory/garden room with double-glazed windows set on a raised plinth and further double-glazed doors giving access to the front elevation. The room provides a lovely living space with views over the neighbouring countryside and beyond.

Off the lobby is a door to the master bedroom which has double-glazed windows to front and side elevations and fitted wardrobes, benefiting from an en-suite shower room with double shower cubicle with mains shower over, low flush w.c. and hand wash basin. Further doors from the reception hallway lead to bedroom 2 a good sized double bedroom with a double-glazed window overlooking the Common to the rear and the 3rd bedroom also leads off the reception hallway which the current owner also utilises as a study. The bungalow benefits from being fully double-glazed and oil-fired centrally heated.

Outside, set on the fringe of the Common, the property is approached via a secure gated access leading through to the driveway which provides ample parking. There is an excellent detached garage/home office measuring 19'7 x 13'2 (5.97m 4.01m) and fitted to a good specification with double-opening wooden doors with a further door to the side, tiled flooring and double-glazed window, radiator and fitted shelving. The gardens and grounds themselves extend to approximately 0.85 acres with more formal gardens to the front elevation including lawned areas, mature shrub borders and ornamental trees, with a pleasant flagged patio area directly to the front of the bungalow providing a lovely outside seating area. Leading off the formal gardens there is a large enclosed area that has been used by the current owners as a productive vegetable garden and also provides an enclosure for poultry. A further gated access then leads to a small paddock which includes an excellent detached timber-framed field shelter/stable block which is split into two with one stable area with gated access and a further similar sized enclosed storage/tack room. There is a canopy over the front and hard standing and a further smaller gated access back to the garden and adjacent is an additional small outbuilding providing further storage. There is a gravelled pathway to the side of the property that leads around to the rear elevation where the external oil-fired central heating boiler is housed, which in turn immediately backs onto the Common where there is also gated access.
