Location & Description

Owls Nest is located within Bringsty Common, close to the Herefordshire border with Worcestershire. It is less than three miles from the busy town of Bromyard, twelve miles from Malvern, fourteen miles from the city of Worcester and just sixteen miles from Ledbury. Bringsty Common itself comprises over 220 acres of Herefordshire common land. It is a wonderful location for uninterrupted walks with its lakes, streams and valleys and to experience the change in seasons from Bluebells in the Spring to the snow in Winter. It is of course the perfect spot for horse riders and there is even the bonus of one of the county's oldest and most popular pubs, The Live and Let Live.

Owls Nest is a striking detached stone cottage occupying a very secluded position on Bringsty Common. The property offers characterful accommodation with an abundance of exposed timbers, exposed floorboards and an attractive inglenook fireplace in the principal reception room. Whilst some improvements have been carried out recently, including double glazed windows being installed to the front of the property, the remainder of the accommodation is in need of complete refurbishment and offers an exciting opportunity for further extension (subject to necessary planning consents). The accommodation is approached at ground floor level through an entrance porch leading to a breakfast kitchen with utility room off, dining room and separate living room with a wood burning stove. From the utility room there is access to a ground floor annexe with a sitting room, bedroom and shower room. On the first floor a landing leads to three bedrooms and a bathroom. Undoubtedly one of the great strengths of Owls Nest is its unique position, nestled within woodland and enjoying grounds extending to approximately THREE ACRES. The property further benefits from extensive off road parking and a range of outbuildings including a COAL SHED, STABLE and TACK ROOM. Offered with no onward chain, the accommodation with approximate dimensions is as follows:
