THE PICTURESQUE LARGE COTTAGE GARDENS WITH STREAM AND VIEWS The gardens are a superb feature of this excellent cottage. From the front there is no indication that they are so large or beautiful and the cottage is designed with the living accommodation on the first floor to take full advantage of the gardens with doors out from the Sitting Room, Garden Room and Dining Room/Library. The gardens are on several interesting levels laid very much in the old cottage style to lawns with shrub borders with a wide variety of trees and plants throughout. From various parts of the garden there is the opportunity to enjoy the sun or shade and also to enjoy the view towards the road bridge and, from the higher part of the garden, a fantastic view along the river as it flows towards Tintern. Throughout the garden are several interesting features including 2 decked areas, a covered store/summerhouse and patios off both the Sitting Room and Dining Room. Close to the boundary is a small orchard with a running stream in a fairly deep cutting below. To the side of the house is a covered fuel and log store and on the south side of the garden is a productive vegetable plot.
THE STUDIO/POTTERY WITH ENORMOUS POTENTIAL Attached to the property, with direct access from the car park and overlooking the village lane, is a STUDIO with potential for a variety of uses. It is currently a pottery but could equally, subject to consent, become a Granny Annexe, Teenage Bedsit, Home Office, and also great potential as an Open Plan One Bed Holiday Let. (See Floor Plan). The main room measures 6.2m x 5m max with partially exposed stone walling, high ceiling and wide window with a pair of double casement doors out to the courtyard. Double glazed Velux rooflight. 2 additional windows and a door out to the village lane. There is a radiator and heating run from the house system. Off to the rear is a small boiler room housing the oil fire boiler for the main heating and domestic hot water and a small kitchentte with single drainer stainless steel sink with hot and cold water, door to the covered car port and to FITTED CLOAKROOM with vanity unit including a wash hand basin, low level wc, quarry tiled floor and side window.
OUTSIDE The property is approached directly off the village lane with parking for at least 4 vehicles with additional space in the OPEN FRONTED GARAGE / CAR PORT with log store to the rear and gated steps to the rear garden. Immediately in front of the cottage is a raised decked area facing south.
