Guide price

Bedrooms: 3
Set in just under an acre of gardens, a delightful Grade II Listed village cottage, full of character and charm, together with a modern one-bedroom detached annex, with a summerhouse and a countercurrent indoor heated exercise pool.

Situation and description.

Well Cottage forms part of the small rural village of Blakemere, which is made up of a number of individual cottages and houses together with a village church. Local services are available at the larger villages of Madley, Peterchurch, Bredwardine, and Staunton on Wye, with more extensive facilities at Hereford (11 miles) and at the ever-popular market town of Hay on Wye, now famous for its annual literary festival.

This very pretty Grade II listed cottage is full of charm and character throughout, whilst offering a modern kitchen, central heating and a detached one-bedroom annex. The gardens are a real surprise, and a major feature of Well Cottage extending close to an acre. They are well stocked with a variety of specimen trees, shrubs and plants and also include an enclosed wildlife pond, summerhouse, and a heated countercurrent indoor exercise pool.

On arrival a front door leads into a small entrance porch and then a living room and separate sitting room, both with plenty of character, including an impressive inglenook fireplace with fitted wood burner. At the rear of the cottage lies a well-equipped kitchen/breakfast room which is an excellent space and offers plenty of cupboards as well as granite working surfaces, a cooker, and breakfast bar (there is space for a dishwasher and fridge and freezer too), with a wall mounted gas fired boiler and glazed door to the gardens.

From the living room a staircase leads up to a first-floor landing which has recessed storage and doors to three charming bedrooms and a bathroom, with the main bedroom having windows on three sides a walk-in wardrobe, ensuite, WC and wash hand basin.

Outside The cottage is approached from the village lane by a good-sized parking area to the front and a separate gated access to one side which leads to the gardens. To the rear there is a modern detached single storey annex, which would be ideal for extended family, or could be a home office, or could offer income potential. Well equipped, it currently comprises a double bedroom, large living room, shower room and utility/kitchen.

The gardens and grounds form a particular feature of the property, with plenty of different spaces to explore, they contain a large array of plants, shrubs and trees, including a large Wingnut Tree, Peonies, Bearded Iris, Wisteria and much more. There are various seating areas and pathways that pass well stocked borders as well as a large natural pond which is fenced and creates a haven for wildlife. The gardens finish in an open area of lawn and a vegetable and soft fruit section with a large greenhouse 12 6 x 8 6 and a separate polytunnel 15 x 10 .

Halfway down the gardens, a cedarwood heated pool house is a real surprise and has power and lighting, its own LPG boiler (pool roughly 12 x 8 ) which is heated and has a current to swim against. There are useful garden stores and a well-positioned summerhouse with lovely views over open countryside.
