Guide price

DESCRIPTION The property comprises and attractive level rectangular enclosure of just over 1.5 acres (approx.) on the northern edge of the village of Gladestry with open fields on three sides and similar modern houses on the fourth. It has a long frontage on to a quiet county lane which has a very small amount of traffic upon it and is ideal for a small/medium scale builder or development company capable of producing high value good quality detached houses which therefore should be in good demand. In addition to four large detached houses the site also accommodates a small affordable house which is the subject of a 106 agreement with strict criteria regarding its occupancy.

LOCATION The site is situated in the popular village of Gladestry which sits on the B4594 just inside the borders of Powys only a short distance from Kington in north west Herefordshire. The village sits in a pretty valley where there is terrific local scenery including the famous Hergest Ridge to the east and the Offa's Dyke footpath across the ridge into Kington. Gladestry has a popular pub and a small well rated primary school as well as a historic church and village hall. There has been some modest development in the village in recent years, mostly in the form of detached good quality houses and the site forms a natural rounding off of the northern edge of the village just beyond the church and the village hall.

Kington is about 4 miles away with good market town facilities. Hay-on-Wye is about 10 miles to the south forming the north eastern gateway of the Brecon Beacons National Park an area of high scenic value and famous for its second hand bookshops. The larger towns of Leominster and Hereford are three quarters of an hour's drive to the south and east respectively. The area is renowned for its beauty with numerous lanes for cycling and walking and various footpaths leading to the Radnorshire Hills to the west.
