Bradlow Farm is situated just outside the vibrant and popular market town of Ledbury, within the fringe area of Bradlow, which is located just east of Hereford and south-west of the beautiful Malvern Hills. The property is within easy reach of the town centre which offers a wide range of amenities, with excellent commuter road, rail, and bus links to the larger commercial centres of Hereford, Gloucester, and Cheltenham. The surrounding countryside is characterised by traditional farms and wooded hills and is renowned for its scenic and unspoilt rural appeal.
Bradlow Farm is small farm with a traditional brick and stone built farmhouse, believed to date from the early 1800's. The property was modernised some 10 years ago to provide a comfortable, well-appointed home.
An entrance hall opens to the kitchen and a utility room, where there is space/plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer, an airing cupboard and a sink unit with storage units. There is also a separate downstairs WC.
The spacious kitchen/breakfast room is a great space with huge potential. The kitchen has a lovely double aspect and is fitted with a range of modern units and space for a fridge/dishwasher/cooker. There is a door to the cellar opposite the rear door, which opens to the courtyard at the back of the house.
There are two reception rooms, each with a wood-burning stove, at the front of the house, offering flexible living for a variety of uses such as a snug, sitting room, family room, dining room or children's TV room.
Stairs from the entrance hall lead to the first floor where there are four bedrooms; three doubles and a single room. The main bedroom has an en-suite shower room and there is a family bathroom with separate bath and shower.
The property has been let for some 10 years and now offers good scope for a new owner to put their stamp on this lovely home.
Approached off a quiet rural lane via a gated entrance, a private driveway leads to the rear of the property where there is a gravelled courtyard with ample parking, and access to the outbuildings and land.
A modest, enclosed front garden is complemented by raised herbaceous borders planted with a variety of flowering plants and shrubs, and a path to the formal front door with an open sided porch.
The main garden is private and lies to the side of the property, mainly lawn but also with some mature shrubs and trees. Part of the garden is sloping and leads down to the enclosed vegetable beds. There is scope for keen gardeners to make their mark.
There are several traditional, single storey brick-built outbuildings including stables and a storage shed within the residential courtyard. The outbuildings offer further potential and ample storage adjacent to the house (514 sq ft).
A modern, open fronted steel framed barn is located behind the residential curtilage, within an enclosed yard and next to the land. A single storey brick barn is adjacent to the portal barn, historically a cow byre with storage but with potential for other uses.
