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

Marley Cottage

Marley Cottage is a charming, period stone cottage, which has largely remained untouched and provides an ideal opportunity for renovation or extension.
The property currently has full PP to extend to create a 2 bedroom, both with en-suite, house with large, open plan living area and subterranean garage. Details of the design and PP can be found online at: www.herefordshire.gov.uk ; planning ref: P191811/FH.
An entrance porch leads directly into the sitting room with original inglenook, with bread oven, and quarry-tiled floor.
There is a modest fitted kitchen and a shower room, which is located on the ground floor in the latterly extended part of the property.
Upstairs, there is one double bedroom and a very traditional open landing room, which would originally and historically have been used as a bedroom for children.

The Outside

Marley Cottage is very privately situated, is not overlooked, and enjoys superb views over the Common Land and towards the Malvern Hills.
The property is approached via a stoned track over Common Land, which leads to the property.
The garden requires some attention, but there are a variety of mature shrubs and trees, including Hydrangea, roses and plum trees.
There are a range of timber and corrugated lean-to stores, with a separate, detached open fronted shed. Whilst providing useful storage, the outbuildings would benefit from either being repaired or replaced.
