Situation

Little Common is located on the Worcestershire/Herefordshire border and ideally and very privately situated off a long, un-adopted track over common land, just off the A44 at Bringsty Common, close to the rural market town of Bromyard. The property enjoys superb, uninterrupted views of the surrounding countryside and is in a truly beautiful rural, but not isolated, location, situated on the fringe of the sought after Bringsty Common. The Cathedral cities of Hereford & Worcester and the motorway network are all within easy reach.

Little Common


This delightful property has its origins in the 17th Century, and has been latterly extended over time and been lovingly cared for by the current owners to provide a comfortable home.
The spacious, open plan fitted kitchen/dining room offers plenty of storage and both rooms have their own direct access to the garden. The kitchen has a range of fitted oak cupboards with an integrated cooker and separate ceramic hob. A useful utility/boot room benefits from fitted storage, underfloor heating and a Belfast-style sink with further space for white goods and direct access to the garden.
A good-sized, yet cosy sitting room with original inglenook, housing a working open fire, and exposed beams provide an insight into the property's historic past.
The Master bedroom is located on the first floor and benefits from fitted storage, there is a separate WC with scope to create an en-suite (subject to Listed Building Consent).
There are 2 bedrooms on the ground floor, with a downstairs shower room and family bathroom. The 2nd bedroom is a good-sized double with access to a useful, boarded loft space with heating, power, Velux window and under-eave storage, which has been used as a hobby room, but offers potential for a variety of uses. There is a 3rd single bedroom.

The Outside


The beautiful and established gardens are planted with a variety of traditional scented roses, mature shrubs, trees and flowering plants. There is also a greenhouse with fruit-cage and potential to incorporate a vegetable garden, as well as an orchard with fruiting apple, plum and cherry trees.
A raised, decked terrace provides the ideal situation for seasonal dining and is the perfect place to sit and enjoy the fabulous views, which are truly stunning.
There are three post & rail fenced, sloping pasture paddocks, 2 timber stables and a separate timber hay store.
The property would make a lovely smallholding, either for those wishing to become more self-sufficient or, indeed, to have a variety of animals and/or poultry for hobby purposes. Ponies have historically been kept at this property.
There are two areas of private and traditional woodland, carpeted by bluebells in the spring; perfect for walks and a haven for both wildlife and plant life. The spring-fed lake with island and surrounding land could be further enhanced if desired, to create an idyllic spot for boating, summer picnics and family get-togethers
The property is approached via a track leading to a private driveway and ample gravelled parking area with brick-built double garage.
