Wolf Cottage is a charming period property retaining a plethora of original features. Exposed beams that pleasingly have escaped blackening paint accentuate the light, airy feel of the unexpected volume of living space offered by 4 reception rooms. A home to appeal to any looking for a slice of the Good Life with its large Vegetable Garden and room to pursue hobbies and crafts, the Orangery alone would make a wonderful Artist’s Studio.
Well-located a mile or so from the petrol station at the crossroads of the main Hereford/Worcester and Leominster/Gloucester roads, the property is an equidistant 10 miles or so to Hereford, Leominster and Ledbury, with Worcester and the M5 18 miles. While the Hop Pocket Shopping Village is 3 miles away offering restaurant, garden centre, antiques and Farm Shop with local meats and produce.
Crossing the threshold leads into the Hallway with its black and red original tile flooring. To the left is the Sitting Room, a light and airy room with exposed beams and a West-facing window overlooking the private front lawn with its colony of native Common Spotted Orchids. The large red brick fireplace is a cosy focal feature with Jotul stove atop the stone flag hearth.
Opposite lies a spacious Dining Room, revealing the authentic skeleton of this home with 3 walls of exposed beams and its originality in the charming detail a small under-stairs cupboard. Again with views over the front garden, this is a highly malleable room equally suited to use as a Study/Home Office, Library or Music Room.
At the end of the Hallway and continuing with its tiled flooring is the Kitchen, featuring a 5 oven oil-fired Aga, fitted Shaker cupboards with stainless steel sink and drainer. There is space for dishwasher and under-counter fridge. A good-sized room with ample space for table and chairs and freestanding fridge/freezer. Twin windows look out on a bank of ferns and comfrey with low retaining wall and paved path around the rear of the house.
Off the Kitchen is a Walk-in Larder, a full-sized room with east facing window for cool food storage. There are 3 open storage shelves and copious amount of space for additional fridge or chest freezer.
To the other end of the Kitchen, a door leads down into the Lobby/Utility. This highly practical area, home to the 2 sets of solar panel controls and 2 External doors, leading to the rear patio and front of the house, forms part of the recent extension. A Multi-tasking area, water and waste connections for washer and dryer make it the spot for laundry while the Downstairs Shower Room with cubicle, WC and basin, make the whole zone ideal for the divestment of coats, work clothes and muddy boots.
The conversion of the old Cider House offers another highly malleable space, flooded with light from large picture window with twin original windows to either side and a further 2 skylights, this is a lovely room of new timber frame and exposed brick made cosy by large freestanding Jotul stove. Its proximity to the Kitchen would make it a light and airy Dining Room.
Double glazed doors open into the Orangery, a private retreat overlooking the gardens and ponds, its wooden frame constructed with timber harvested from the neighbouring estate.
Up the original wood staircase and beyond an ancient wooden door lies the dual aspect Master Bedroom with window overlooking the front garden and twin skylights to the rear. A great sized bedroom, where exposed beams create a low partition wall with large under-eaves storage beyond.
Across the landing is a Double Bedroom with original wood flooring that also enjoys front and rear dual aspect views and under-eaves storage.
Between lies the Family Bathroom, currently fitted with a disabled bath, WC and pedestal basin there is plenty of space for both a full bath and shower. In the corner is an Airing Cupboard housing the solar-heated water tank and storage shelf.
Off the road is ample parking before the wooden gate enclosing the garden. The front garden is mainly laid to lawn dotted with spring bulbs and native orchids and surrounded by evergreen hedges. An assortment of timber and brick outbuildings provide potential for workshops, tool stores, and sheds. To the rear lies a large rabbit-fenced Vegetable plot with Greenhouse. To the far side of the house is a south-facing paved patio, with views to open fields, while 2 ponds lie on the boundary of the neighbouring 7 acre woodland copse.
