Location & Description

Much Marcle boasts a very vibrant community and has excellent village amenities including a church, primary school, village hall, pubs and a garage. The town of Ledbury is approximately 5 miles distant where there is a wide range of local facilities including shops, schools, churches, hotels, restaurants, doctors surgery, hospital, theatre, bus service and a mainline railway station. The riverside town of Ross on Wye is a similar distance and provides further excellent amenities whilst the cities of Hereford, Worcester and Gloucester are all approximately 16 miles distant. The M50 motorway is easily accessible approximately 4 miles to the south of Ledbury.

Believed to have been built in the 1600's, Audley Cottage is a charming detached cottage located in the popular village of Much Marcle. The property previously formed part of a working dairy farm and presents a rare opportunity as this is the first time it has been offered for sale in nearly 100 years. The accommodation is in need of refurbishment throughout and has tremendous potential to become a fine family home. The accommodation on the ground floor comprises an entrance hall, living room with an open fireplace, kitchen, dining room, large walk in pantry, conservatory, utility room and cloakroom. On the first floor a landing leads to three bedrooms (two of which are interconnecting) and a shower room. Outside, a courtyard provides parking for several vehicles and in turn leads to an extensive range of outbuildings including a DOUBLE GARAGE, WORKSHOP and two STORE ROOMS. To the rear of the property there is a delightful mature garden, which is predominantly laid to lawn with a hardstanding patio area. There is also an additional area of pastureland, including an organic orchard, extending to approximately 4.16 acres, which could be available to purchase or rent by separate negotiation. Further details are available from the selling agent. The accommodation with approximate dimensions is as follows:
