Situation and Description Vine Villa is situated in a small area known as The Vauld, which lies mid-way between the popular and well-serviced villages of Marden and Bodenham. The property is approached off a small country lane and stands in lovingly tended gardens and grounds of approximately 2.5 acres.
The cottage is thought to date back to the 1800s and is principally constructed of stone elevations under a tiled roof, with a charming entrance porch with roses around the door! The current owners have extended and improved the cottage throughout and it now offers comfortable four-bedroom accommodation. On the ground floor a cosy sitting room houses a wood burning stove and on the opposite side of the cottage there is a second reception room, ideal as a study or reading room. To the rear, there is a large inner hallway with an Esse wood burning stove and a large built-in pantry. This in turn gives access to a good sized fully fitted kitchen/breakfast with integrated double oven, induction hob and dishwasher. On the opposite side of the inner hallway there is access to a good-sized cupboard and secondly a utility cloakroom with wc, wash hand basin as well as utility space and plumbing and a range of units. On the first floor there are four comfortable bedrooms, all complimented by a good-sized bathroom. The master bedroom enjoys a small dressing room with his and hers wardrobes.
Externally, the gardens and grounds at Vine Villa are a beauty to behold and have been lovingly tended and well-stocked to include a variety of shrubs, flowers and small trees. At the front of the cottage there is a beautifully nurtured garden with a gravel and paved seating area together with other less formal seating areas dotted around the garden. The land sweeps away from the property and in turn gives access to two original paddocks. The first has been cultivated for fruit and veg with raised beds and a more natural garden at the far end with cut pathways making it easy to access. Here there is a small pond and a couple of useful outbuildings, including a wood store and field shelter for garden machinery. The second paddock can be approached from either the gardens or the parking area at the far end of the boundary to Vine Villa. This also has been left ‘to go wild’ with again cultivated paths and a number of mature and infant trees dotted throughout.
Adjoining the cottage are a range of useful outbuildings; one of which is accessed externally but lies below the master bedroom and used currently as a good-sized utility room 15ft 1 x 14ft 11 with a Belfast sink as well as a small cloakroom. Attached to the cottage is an excellent workshop 16ft 1 x 15ft 5 with power and opening doors to the front. Within this workshop is a lockable store 7ft 1 x 4ft 11 with two further similar sized storage areas behind. Adjoining the workshop are two useful store-rooms 11ft 3 x 7ft 6 each, both with doors to the front and power. Two further useful timber built structures are a garden store shed and separate car port.
