Originally two cottages, No 1 Baldhu Row is a much-loved charming home that needs to be seen to appreciate its beautiful, warm welcoming interior, fabulous gardens, and all it has to offer.
The accommodation consists of, on the ground floor, a country-style kitchen with a Rayburn and exposed beams, an inviting living-dining room with a feature fireplace, and two good-sized double bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor.
Outside there is a large workshop studio with power and light connected, a sun-trap courtyard garden with a block-built potting shed, a paved covered off-road parking area for two cars, and the wonderful woodland, tiered, gardens with lawns, a deck, a paved barbecue area and views out over the village - the garden is a real gem and really does need to be seen.

Mainly paved with pretty raised flower beds and a planted bank to the rear, a block-built potting shed and steps down to a gated brick-paved parking area which is covered and large enough for two cars to park off-road.
From the paved parking area, there is a bin store and gate that opens up to the steps to the 'magical' garden!
The steps are fairly steep but the walk up is definitely worth it. The garden meanders through a beautiful private woodland area with paths and raised areas to plant, arbours, a paved barbecue and seating spot next to a great pond with Water Lillies, which then leads on to a pair of tiered lawns and a fabulous 'party deck' with lights, power and views out over the village.
A surprising and lovely hidden gem! It really does have to be seen to take it all in.
There is pedestrian access only behind Number 1 for residents of Number 2 Baldhu Row, for oil delivery and property maintenance.
