The market town of Bromyard offers a range of local facilities including shops, pubs, supermarket, bakery, butchers, bank and Post Office together with primary and secondary schools. The cathedral cities of Worcester and Hereford are 14 and 16 miles distant providing M5/M50 motorway access to Birmingham and the West Midlands together with railway links to Birmingham New Street and London Paddington.

Description

Believed to date back to 1780, The Coach House is a most attractive and individual stone built detached cottage enjoying a delightful rural location on the outskirts of Bromyard. The Coach House previously formed part of the outbuildings and stables belonging to The Old Rectory before being converted in the 1980's by a local builder. Since then, the current owners have carried out further alterations including the addition of a single storey annexe in the 1990's, which could suit those with dependent relatives or be adapted for a growing family. The property provides versatile and flexible accommodation with a wealth of period features including exposed ceiling timbers, deep skirting boards and oak latched doors to most of the principle rooms. Whilst it is evident that strides have been taken to carry out improvements with some newly installed uPVC double glazed windows and a newly fitted oil tank, The Coach House still offers scope with exciting potential.

A great strength of The Coach House is its location, enjoying an idyllic setting tucked away amidst the beautiful Herefordshire countryside. There are fantastic far reaching views from every aspect with a particularly pleasant outlook toward St Mary's Church and across open farmland. The immediate area is a haven for local wildlife and is within easy reach to a variety of footpaths that cross the length and breadth of the Bromyard Downs.

The accommodation is arranged on the ground floor with an entrance hall, study, living room with feature inglenook fireplace, large breakfast kitchen with family seating area, rear hall/boot room, separate utility room and shower room. On the first floor the landing leads to a master bedroom, which enjoys a dual aspect, two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The annexe is self contained and comprises an open plan living room/kitchen, conservatory, bedroom and en suite bathroom.

Outside, The Coach House is approached by an in and out driveway providing a generous area of parking and leads to a substantial detached garage/studio. The exterior of the garage was overhauled in 2018 and has the potential to become a home office or workshop. The grounds are predominately laid to lawn with mature trees and hedged boundaries extending to THREE QUARTERS OF AN ACRE. Enjoying complete privacy and seclusion, it truly is a delightful spot.
