The attractive and historic, facade of this property plays a key role in Bromyard history and boasts three large bay windows on the high-street, overlooking the cobbled market square in Bromyard. Beautiful and intricate timber detailing on the front of the building makes it a memorable property which really stands out from the rest.

Walking in through the front door of the property, brings you into the commercial dining/serving area, which was once Flowerdews Tea Rooms. Fabulous, polished, wide, wooden floorboards sweep across the room and the three enormous bay windows allow natural light to flood the bare beams, naked lathe, exposed stone and other period features.

This really is a wonderful bright and airy space, which could easily be turned into a huge, open plan living/dining area, or could be returned to its commercial nature, with little work. Large double doors at the rear and righthand side of the room, lead to stairs taking you up to the living accommodation on the first floor, whilst a door in the center of the rear wall leads into the commercial kitchen area. A third door is tucked into the far left hand corner of the room, and this takes you into a hallway, with a downstairs WC and a door to the rear garden.

There is a trap door in the floor, to the right of the front door, in the corner nearest the road, which takes you down into a huge and very useful cellar, which is perfect for storage and really adds an extra dimension to this already, extraordinary property.

Outside, the first door to the right takes you into a utility room, which can service both the shop floor and the living space, as it has stairs taking you to the first floor.


Commercial kitchen
The commercial kitchen is spacious and bright, which has been properly set up for hygiene maintenance. As you move into the room there is a useful hand washing sink, space for a large American style fridge, cupboards with easy clean counter tops and a food washing sink. The work tops sweep around the walls of the room with a professional gas cooker and oven on the righthand wall with an extractor hood above. The rear wall of the kitchen, has double glass doors, leading out into a fabulous private rear garden and a dish washing sink, with more cupboards and counter space under a large window with space for a dishwasher.

The whole room has been designed to allow good airflow and lighting, making this an ideal work space. However, it could easily be turned into a family kitchen, with easy access to that wonderful decked back garden.


First floor
Moving up stairs, the first door you come to on your right is a small hallway, which houses an airing cupboard, the family bathroom and bedroom three. Both the family bathroom and bedroom three, overlook the back of the property and have stunning views across the old town to the Bromyard Downs beyond.

The bathroom is full of character, with steps up to the bath, included is a WC and handwash basin.

Bedroom three is large enough for a double bed but could also make a great study.

After the hallway, there are stairs going down to the utility room and the back garden. Further on is the fabulous kitchen/diner, reception room, and stairs leading up to bedroom one and two.


Kitchen/diner
Two huge windows overlooking the market square below flood the polished, wide, wooden floorboards, making this a bright and airy room.

Bare beams accent the walls and high ceiling, with beautiful oak sideboards installed to fit the sink and cooker on the right hand wall of the room.

The window nearest the sink has a balcony which can be slid high to allow access to store flower pots to the front elevation.


Living room
A door from the kitchen takes you through to the living room, which has the second balconied window, and is another bright room.

The living room has a log burner, exposed beams and high ceilings, but could make a wonderful fourth bedroom or study, should one decide to use the whole property as a residence.


Second floor
The second floor is a pleasure. Large dormer windows with splendid vistas across the rooftops to the Downs, accentuate the feeling of space in the large galleried landing. The beams are picked out in honey tones by the light, making this a charming floor.

The spacious master bedroom has dual aspect windows and is situated at the end of this landing. It has a window overlooking the market square and a dormer window overlooking Sherford Street and the gorgeous countryside beyond. The exposed beams are truly lovely in this room and add an enormous amount of character.

Bedroom two is at the front of the house and has two slightly smaller windows overlooking the market square and large built-in cupboards at one end of the room. This is another bright and comforting room, which could easily fit in a double bed.


Outside
The back garden of this property is a real treat. The whole of the back yard has been decked to ensure a flat surface for putting out tables and chairs should one wish, either with a cafe/restaurant in mind, or just for the family. The garden is completely private, not overlooked and south-east facing, so is a real sun trap. Beautiful stone and brick walls, beg for pots of climbing roses, wisteria, clematis and jasmine to scent the summer air.

Unusually for Bromyard, there is an off-road parking spot at the rear of the residence, which is accessed via steps from the back garden to Sherford Street. There is a covenant held for access to the steps in return for the parking spot. Overall, this is a really stunning, unusual and historic property, which deserves a wonderful new role in Bromyard's future.

Services
Gas combination boiler for radiators. Mains gas, water, electricity and drainage.
Council tax band is C upstairs and business rates for the ground floor.
