Bruton Knowles (John Amos & Co) are delighted to have received kind instructions to offer 6.3 acres of land and two semi-detached cottages, located at Kingsfield, Marden, Hereford HR1 3EU for sale by private treaty.

The property comprises a pair of semi-detached two-bedroom cottages with gardens and outbuildings, together with a block of versatile land in a ring fence with good road frontage. It comprises an excellent opportunity rarely seen on the current market, for buyers wishing to carry out a renovation project to create a spacious single residence or for someone to secure two cottages providing strong potential rental income. The property would also suit equestrian purposes (subject to the necessary planning permissions).

The cottages are for sale together as the one pair, with a valuable total area of approximately 6.3 acres of land as shown on the sale plan. The cottages have recently been let until Autumn 2021 at good rents and enjoy fine views especially but now require some internal renovation.

The land is located just over a mile outside of Marden, a village conveniently placed between the city of Hereford (6 miles) and the town of Leominster (8 miles). The village has a primary school, post office and village stores, as well as a regular and local bus route. Popular Herefordshire attractions Queenswood Arboretum, Bodenham Lakes and Hampton Court Castle are within a two mile radius.

A pair of semi-detached cottages constructed of rendered masonry and reconstituted stone block walls under a slate roof, with single storey brick and flat roof kitchen extensions to the rear. The property combines to approx. 1,460 sq.ft. (136 sq.m) with the accommodation consisting of:

Both the kitchen and bathroom have uPVC windows to the rear, and the property also has a back door.

A carpeted staircase leads to a small landing with access to two bedrooms - one a small double room with fitted wardrobe and the other a single; both of which have uPVC windows to the front of the property and radiators.

Lavender Cottage is accessible via a door to the rear of the property, with an oak-floored hallway and a bathroom straight ahead containing hand-basin with mirror above, bath with shower, lavatory, heated towel rail and window to the front. The hall also leads into the living area, with a fireplace, window to front and door to Wisteria Cottage, in turn leading to the kitchen which contains two windows to the rear, a standalone freezer and room for an oven and washing machine/dishwasher.

The stairs lead to a small landing allowing access to a single carpeted bedroom with a small integrated wardrobe and window to front, with the other a large double room with cupboard for boiler and window to the front.

Access is via a good stone track from the Marden to Bodenham road. Each cottage has gardens to the rear and plenty of space for a front garden, ample parking space and a small open-fronted brick outbuilding.
