Situation Situated in the small rural hamlet of Ketford, surrounded by the rolling valleys, apple orchards and vineyards associated with this region, Palmers is well placed for good access to the local towns of Newent and Ledbury. This rural, yet not isolated, idyll offers a pastoral quality of life with excellent access to commuter links and the larger towns and cities in the locality, which are all within reasonable travelling distances. A perfect combination for rural living, combined with modern-day accessibility.

Palmers * Palmers was originally a two-up/two-down period cottage which has subsequently been renovated and extended to the lovely light and spacious home it has become.

* An entrance hall leads into the property with a useful downstairs WC leading off and the stairs up to the first floor.

* The property has three reception rooms, a comfortable sitting room with double aspect and French doors leading out to a patio terrace. A “Truflame” electric contemporary-style fire provides a great feature to this room.

* A very spacious and light, open-plan kitchen/dining/family room is the heart of this lovely home and benefits from ample storage and attractive, granite work surfaces. An integrated fridge, a freezer, a dishwasher and LPG range cooker and cooker hood further complement this super room which also has French doors out to the patio terrace and garden.

Palmers Ctd. * A separate and useful utility room leads directly off the kitchen where there is additional cupboard storage and space for a washing machine and a door leading out to the garden.

* There is a further cosy snug with a wood-burner and an additional reception room with original fireplace which provides a flexible space and could be used, as a study, children's games/TV room, etc.

* Stairs lead up to the first floor where there are four bedrooms and a family bathroom with a separate bath and large walk-in shower.

* The main bedroom is a spacious double room with double aspect and en-suite shower room. There are two further double rooms and a single room. Two of the bedrooms retain the original fireplaces, which are lovely features and an insight into the property's history.

The Outside * Palmers is approached off a very quiet, rural lane via a private drive which leads to an ample gravelled parking area and to the front of the property.

* There is a manageable, lawned front garden and an attractive raised flower bed flanking the driveway entrance.

A large, lawned rear garden which really is a blank canvas, offers plenty of scope to create a wonderful outdoor space. Raised flower beds provide additional interest and would benefit from some further planting.

* There is a very smart patio terrace which provides a great space for socialising with family and friends, and for seasonal dining.
