Radbrook offers the quintessential Welsh stone cottage brimming with characterful features, exposed stone and timber beams. Previously extended and now recently renovated it benefits from an unexpectedly modern open flow and offers malleable living space, spilling out onto a sheltered suntrap patio and private garden with vistas across rear open fields to the dramatic backdrop of forested hills. Across the quiet lane to the front lies a 10m x 5m Double Garage with integral Workshop, newly built for a car enthusiast with gravelled driveway access providing ample parking; an unexpected advantage for this charming home given its central village location and making it an ideal holiday home base.
Set at the heart of New Radnor, the thriving village offers numerous amenities including local shop with off-license, school and vibrant community centre with Over 60s club, W.I. meetings and even an annual Carnival. With a regular bus service, it lies 7miles from the market town of Kington and 25miles from the city of Hereford. On the doorstep is a vast tract of registered common land ideal for walking, riding and mountain biking, while it is well-situated for all the local tourist draws; the dramatic dams of the Elan valley, the famed ancient walking trail of Offa’s Dyke and many castle sites of the historic Welsh Marches, this once-troubled borderland.
Entry Hall – Stepping from quiet Rectory Lane the Front Door opens into the Entry Hall with an open side lobby with front window, an ideal space for the divestment of coats and boots and offering enough space for even a freezer.
Snug – An original wooden latch door opens into the Snug, an open and malleable space as easily used for dining and directly connected to the Kitchen. It makes a lovely spot for morning coffee whilst reading the papers, with a built-in double cupboard to the corner and enjoys natural light from its opposed dual aspect windows looking out to the lane or onto the patio and garden.
Kitchen – Up a step under a timber beam opens the wide Kitchen, fully-fitted in an array of oak units including useful tray slot and wine racks. Its obvious country charm is perfected by an oil-fired Rayburn, with for summer cooking an integrated Bosch double oven with Induction hob above. The composite sink with integral drainer sits beneath a window beside an External stable door leading out to the patio, its stained glass panel matching the larger panel topping the peninsula that partly defines the Kitchen from the Snug. The Kitchen is completed with integrated dishwasher and under-counter fridge, with space for a washing machine.
Sitting/Dining Room – The characterful Sitting Room has exposed wall and ceiling beams and features an original fireplace with exposed stone backing and deep Welsh slate reveals and hearth. With a new liner for the flue it would make an ideal home for a woodburner. While to the side are 6 open display shelves. The adjoining extension provides a light and airy Dining Room with side window and double French doors opening out onto the stone patio and into the wider garden.
Bedroom One – To the far end of the landing with exposed stone wall lies the first carpeted Double Bedroom. It enjoys a characterful and airily pitched roof with exposed beams and opposed dual aspect windows, to the front overlooking the lane and across towards the dominating castle mount and rolling fields beyond or across the rear gardens to forested hills. The room also has an exposed stone chimney breast with fitted double wardrobe to the side.
Bedroom Two – At the opposite end of the landing is the second carpeted Double Bedroom, also enjoying a high pitched roof with beams and a fitted wardrobe. Dual aspect windows overlook the patio and rear gardens.
Shower Room – The modern and stylish Shower Room features a large cubicle with Mira shower and a fitted run of storage units integrating a WC and basin. It is completed with a heated towel rail and wood-effect vinyl flooring.
Study – Off the landing also lies a small carpeted Study with window overlooking the rear garden, offering an ideal Home Office or perhaps a Dressing Room as desired.
Airing Cupboard – On the landing lies a double Airing Cupboard, providing storage and home to the hot water tank.
The rear of the cottage opens onto a stone paved patio spanning the width of the property, with water butt and outside tap, its south-facing aspect creates a sheltered suntrap ideal for Outdoor Dining. To the far side of the Dining Room a covered alley allows direct access via a secure door to the front lane. While wide stone steps lead up from the patio into the mature garden with open lawn bordered by a variety of flowering shrubs.
To the far end of the garden lies a small deck, 2 wooden Sheds and a working area ideal for composting with a section of the original stone village defensive wall. Across the front lane beyond a stone wall lies the expansive, timber-clad Double Garage with integral Workshop and has planning for extending still further. The 10m x 5m Garage has power, 6 double strip lighting bars, electric roller door and ample space for storage, tumble dryer and chest freezer. It has screening, flowering shrub and evergreen plantings to the side, all-round access for maintenance and a wide gravel forecourt for parking.
