Allensmore, Hereford


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
ONLINE AUCTION - An existing three bedroom cottage in need of full modernisation but having the added bonus of detailed planning permission (application number PP204345/F) for an outstanding looking four bedroom detached dwelling with three reception rooms. The proposed plan will see the property re-sited further back from the country lane and the gardens extended into the paddock. The level block of land is well drained and clearly fenced and the scheme would be ideal for anyone wishing for a self-build project, particularly those with equestrian interests due to the land and existing buildings.

The property can be found situated just off the A465 Abergavenny road along a country lane giving easy access travelling north towards Hereford and south to Abergavenny.
