Situation

2 Bowley Lane is situated just outside the thriving village of Bosbury, an area once celebrated for being one of the largest hop-producing communities outside of Kent during the 19th & 20th Centuries. This part of Herefordshire lies close to the Worcestershire border and is renowned for its scenic and unspoilt countryside. The area offers a sought-after rural quality of life combined with excellent communication links to the rest of the country.

2 Bowley Lane

Built originally in the 1950s, No 2 Bowley Lane is one of a pair of semi-detached properties getting their name from the old “Bowley Lane” which historically ran from this area through to Bosbury village.
The property has not been the subject of any alterations or improvements over the years and could now benefit from renovation and potentially an extension (subject to planning permission).
On the ground floor is an entrance porch and hallway with access into the sitting room with a fire place. There is also a kitchen/breakfast room with a solid fuel Rayburn. A rear porch gives access to a W.C.
On the first floor are 2 double bedrooms and a single bedroom along with family bathroom.

Outside

The property sits off the main road with gardens to the front, side and rear of the house.
A private driveway provides access to the rear hardstanding parking area and to the excellent barn/workshop which could be used for a variety of uses and offers scope to extend further if required (subject to planning permission)
To the East of the house are the extensive orchards extending to about 12 acres, this old orchard is planted with perry pears, cider apples and a few cooking apples.
The orchard is quite “open” and there would be scope to open up a view to the Malvern Hills with some careful felling.
