Substantial Property, Formerly A Pub & Licensed Restaurant

Offers Generous 4 Bed Accommodation With An Extensive Range Of Outbuildings, Ample Parking & Good Size Gardens

Comes With Planning Permission With in The Garden For The Erection Of A Pair Of Semi-Detached Houses


The Birdcage is situated on the western fringes of the Historic Market Town of Leominster.  The town itself has a number of traditional High Street shops together with a range of supermarkets, both doctor and dental surgeries, leisure facilities including swimming pool and excellent transport links to include both bus and railway station.  The larger Cathedral City of Hereford is located approximately 13 miles to the south, where a more comprehensive range of amenities can be found, and to the north, the picturesque and well-renowned south Shropshire town of Ludlow.


The Birdcage was originally the Brick Makers Arms many years ago before changing to a licensed restaurant in the mid 70's.  The current owner's family have lived in the property for many years and are looking now to down size having stopped trading in the early 2000's before using the property as a family home.

The property itself comprises a substantial property, with extended accommodation set over 2 floors.  Approached via a large parking driveway area to the side, the front door opens to a Reception Hallway which continues to an Inner Hallway, with doors then leading off to a Sitting Room, separate Living Room and large Drawing Room.  Leading off the drawing room is the original Bar Area which still retains the bar itself and double doors leading through to a large Function/Dining Room which also has double doors leading out to the front elevation, and to the rear has an archway to a Garden Room with double glazed sliding patio doors opening to the rear.  Also on the ground floor is a Family Dining Room with door leading also out to the rear and housing the oil fired Rayburn which also runs the central heating.  A door from here then leads through to, what once was the Commercial Kitchen, but now is used as the main kitchen, having a range of base and wall cupboards, inset one and half bowl single drainer stainless steel sink unit, space for utilities, built-in double oven and grill, large gas Range/Oven with extractor hood above and further stainless steel work surfaces, ceiling spotlights, tiled flooring and opaque glazed door to the rear.  From the Reception Hallway there is access to the Cellar which has power and lighting and original coal flue to the front.  The first floor accommodation includes a good sized landing area, 4 Double Bedrooms, a large Family Bathroom and  a Second Bathroom off the landing as well as separate shower room and w.c.

Outside the property has a large parking area to the side and an open-fronted garage with a gated access around to the side of the house then leading to a raised flagged patio area which continues around to the rear of the property with steps up to the patio doors from the Garden Room.  A sliding door then leads to an enclosed and covered further patio area stretching along the back of the property, with doors into the Bar Area and Kitchen and links to the Original Toilets including separate women's and men's toilets from when the property was a commercial concern.  Continuing around to the side of the toilets is a door to a Separate Laundry Room which links onto further Additional Single Storey Buildings, including a Store Room, a Block Built Wood Store which houses the oil tank and 2 further store rooms. To the rear of the toilet block is a Garden/Potting Shed which overlook a small enclosed garden area, from there steps then lead down to a Separate Block Built Single Storey Outbuilding/Barn with the initial part having gated access and measuring 26'0" x 20'0" (7.91m x 6.09m) with a further second room measuring 26'0" x 10'0" (7.91m x 3.05m) which has separate access.  The property then benefits from good sized formal gardens that stretch off to the rear and side of the property, which are laid principally to lawn with some mature ornamental floral and shrub borders and a vegetable/fruit garden to the rear.


The property benefits from Outline Planning Permission for the proposed erection of a pair of semi-detached houses within the garden.   This was granted on the 14th July 2016 Application No: 161937. Further details of this can be obtained from the Agents, together with plans and copy of the Planning Permission.
