Location & Description
The favoured village of Cradley has a primary school, butchers shop and general store, village hall, doctors surgery and a church. The popular towns of Great Malvern (approx 5 miles) and Ledbury (approx 6 miles) both provide further excellent facilities and amenities including mainline railway stations. The property is also well placed for easy access to the cities of Worcester and Hereford. The M5 motorway can be accessed at Worcester and the M50 to the south of Ledbury.
Believed to originally date back to the 16th century, Wallmeadow is a Grade II listed half timbered character cottage situated in the popular village of Cradley. The property has evolved during the ownership of the current vendors, with a substantial single storey extension added in the 1970's and more recently an oak framed porch in the mid 2000's. The majority of the accommodation is at ground floor level with large windows and numerous Velux roof lights flooding the house with natural light. The house is well proportioned with a dining hall giving access to the sitting room, featuring exposed beams and a striking fireplace, and to the breakfast kitchen. The utility room opens into an inner hall off which there are three bedrooms, a wet room and family bathroom. To the first floor there is a further double bedroom, enjoying a dual aspect, and a box room/study, which gives access to a large attic room. The property has oil fired central heating, partial double glazing and solar panels, which provide additional hot water. Surrounded by open farmland, the house enjoys an idyllic secluded position set back from the road along a sweeping driveway with a stream running along one boundary. The driveway leads to a turning and parking area that can accommodate several vehicles and to a detached single garage. The grounds extend to approximately 2.16 acres, with an area of garden predominantly laid to lawn and an adjoining paddock with a wooden outbuilding and stable, making it ideal for those with equestrian interests.
