AN ATTRACTIVE SEMI DETACHED COUNTRY COTTAGE OFFERING EXTENDED THREE BEDROOMED ACCOMMODATION SITUATED IN A PLEASANT RURAL LOCATION WITH A DELIGHTFUL COTTAGE STYLE GARDEN ADJOINING WOODLAND AND WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE TO PUTLEY COMMON.

Location

Putley Common is a rural hamlet conveniently positioned enjoying easy access to the city of Hereford (approximately 10 miles) and the popular town of Ledbury (approximately 5 miles), which offers a good range of facilities and amenities. The M50 motorway is available 4 miles to the south of Ledbury bringing The Midlands and South West into easy travelling distance.

Description

Believed to originally date back to the 1800's, The Cottage is an attractive semi detached country cottage situated in a delightful rural location set back from the road nestled within a well established cottage garden. The Cottage offers deceptively spacious accommodation, which was extended and reconfigured by the current owners in 2004. It is evident that much thought and consideration has gone into the works that have been carried out so as to enhance the property's charm and character with oak latched doors, two feature fireplaces and solid oak flooring to the main principle rooms.

The accommodation, which benefits from oil fired central heating and partial double glazing, is approached on the ground floor by an entrance hall off which doors lead to a cloakroom, living room with French doors to outside and an open plan dining kitchen from where stairs lead to the first floor. On the first floor a landing leads to the master bedroom, which enjoys a dual aspect, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Outside, The Cottage is accessed by a pedestrian right of way and enjoys a cottage style garden adjacent to privately owned woodland. For those who wish to pursue outdoor activities, the surrounding countryside, which includes the Common, is largely unspoilt and there are many walks and bridle paths close to the property.
