Burford Cottage

Burford Cottage is a classic country cottage set in an enviable, elevated position on the edge of the Wye Valley, with views across the meadows to the river.
This Listed property originates from the 17th Century with some modest extension over the years. Having undergone a comprehensive refurbishment over the last two years, this now presents a very comfortable home.
There are 3 double bedrooms to the first floor, one with en-suite shower, plus a compact family bathroom. A generous landing links the rooms, two of which are double aspect.
To the ground floor, a central hall has stairs to the first floor and also leads to the kitchen, the utility room, the dining room and a downstairs wet room/WC.
The dining room can also be used as an en-suite 4th bedroom.

The fitted kitchen benefits from electric oven, microwave oven, electric hob. Double aspect windows. An adjacent utility room provides ample storage space, has plumbing for washing machine and dishwasher and houses the Worcester oil fired boiler.
Beyond the kitchen are 2 reception rooms: a comfortable sitting room with wood burning stove and the light ''sun-room' on the west side, patio doors opening on both sides.

The Outside

Located at the end of a small, ''no-through' country lane, this is a beautifully tranquil and quiet spot. Sellack's St Tysilio church sits in the foreground to provide a quintessentially English country scene.
The private drive leads to a generous parking bay, where there is crystalised consent to build a single garage. There is also a useful wood shed adjacent to the drive.
Lawns, front and rear, wrap round the property and are bordered by permanent pasture, and woodland to the south.
A detached Bothy sits south and above the cottage. This building has plenty of scope but is currently rather ''rustic'. It has historically been lived in and is connected to drainage, electricity and water. This could make a super home office, ancillary accommodation or a holiday let, subject to the necessary permissions.
