Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
Enjoying breath-taking views over open countryside to the Black Mountains in the distance, a beautifully presented three-bedroom detached cottage, set in private and well-stocked gardens of just under half an acre.

Orchard Cottage is one of a number of individual properties that lie on The Downs, above the popular market town of Bromyard. The town offers an excellent range of local facilities, with more extensive services available at the large centres of Hereford and Worcester which both lie approximately 14 miles away. There are some wonderful walks right on the doorstep and the property enjoys extensive south westerly views.

Orchard Cottage is initially approached from a quiet country lane and then by its own gravel driveway which provides parking and turning space for several cars. A pathway leads to the front door, with canopy porch, and a welcoming reception hall. The living accommodation is beautifully presented throughout and has been updated and improved by the existing owners and includes a very comfortable sitting room at one end, with double doors leading out to a sun terrace at the front, an attractive fireplace with fitted wood burner and useful built-in storage cupboards. Next door is a good-sized study, again with an open fireplace and windows overlooking the garden. At the other end of the cottage is a very practical and well-appointed kitchen which includes an Esse cooker and deep fill sink. Archways look through and provide access to a dining area and family room with a stunning outlook and plenty of light and space with doors at one end to another sun terrace. A further door leads to a side entrance porch with a stable door to outside, storage recess and door to a useful cloakroom. From the hall, a staircase provides access to the first floor and to the master bedroom, which again is well-appointed and enjoys a dual aspect with far reaching views, a fitted walk-in wardrobe and an en suite shower room. There are two further bedrooms, both with a lovely outlook with a recess and space saving double bed. These bedrooms are supported by a separate shower room.

The outstanding feature of Orchard Cottage is its outstanding position with stunning and ever-changing views over Bromyard to the Black Mountains in the distance. The gardens and grounds extend to approximately 0.5 of an acre and are well-established and very private. They comprise a large lawn area, enclosed by mature hedging with two large patios, or sun terraces, one of which makes the most of the view. There are an array of herbaceous borders, interspersed with shrubs and trees and a terrace with a Calor gas tank and garden store. The lawn continues, to a further private seating area and garden store, chicken run, fruit trees and separate access from the lane at the far end of the property.
