Orchard Cottage is situated in the hamlet of Coombes Moor, only a couple of miles from the market town of Presteigne and village of Shobdon. This home is set in an idyllic position surrounded by beautiful unspoilt scenery. Local amenities include local independent shops, pubs, cafés, church, cricket, and golf clubs.

There are excellent schools nearby including a primary school in Shobdon and private secondary school at Lucton, both of which are highly regarded.

Orchard Cottage occupies an idyllic position surrounded by its own land. You approach the home across a private driveway which is flanked on either side by fenced paddocks owned by the home. The drive leads to a substantial parking area for multiple vehicles.

The property is accessed from the rear by a boot room, offering ample space for muddy boots and coats, although a more formal entrance can be found at the frontage if preferred. Going through a utility area with ample storage, Belfast sink and tiled floor you are welcomed under an archway with red brick feature above into the kitchen/diner which is the real heart of the home.

The kitchen with feature beams has been fitted with a good range of base units with wooden worktops over, sink, central island with granite worktop over and a two oven Aga with Oak mantle over. A stable door gives access to the porch and out to the garden beyond. To the other end of the kitchen is ample space for a dining table leading into a snug which is made cosy with the addition of a woodburning stove.

A step up from here leads up to a further reception room, which has a door to the garden, double aspect windows and a secondary staircase which leads to a bedroom.

To the other end of the house, from the utility room, you enter a well-proportioned dining room which has slate flooring, enjoys windows to two elevations and has ample room for a large table. There is a door through to a large storage cupboard. A hallway gives access to two further reception rooms and downstairs WC. The first of the reception rooms is currently used as a study but offers versatility in usage.

The fabulous living room was formerly a barn to the home and was converted and incorporated into the accommodation by previous owners. It has a beautiful, vaulted ceiling with feature beams, double doors opening out onto an outside decking area and the room is centred around a woodburning stove with flagstone hearth.

The primary staircase leads from the kitchen diner to the upstairs accommodation which comprises 4/5 bedrooms and two bathrooms. All the bedrooms enjoy different aspects looking out over the garden and grounds. The principal bedroom is a great size with plenty of light coming in from two Velux windows and door leading through to the ensuite with roll top bath, large shower, WC, and wash hand basin.

Leading to bedroom 2 is a dressing area, bedroom 2 occupies one end of the home and has the secondary staircase leading into the reception room below. Bedrooms 4 Is a single and bedroom 3 is a double. The family bathroom comprises bath with shower over, WC and wash hand basin.

Outside, the total plot extends to approximately three acres. The formal gardens sit to the front and rear of the cottage both of which are laid to lawn. The frontage has a decked area offering a perfect space for entertaining. This garden area leads down to a spring fed lake. The rear garden gives access to chicken coop, stable yard and shed for storage.

There are four stables on offer, with potential for a fifth to be incorporated if required. An additional shed offers further storage/tack room space. The stables all have rubber matting, and there is electricity, light, and water available. The yard has a gate giving access to an all-weather turnout which is fully fenced and has another gate opening to the other end.
