Description

The Stables is a delightful red brick detached country cottage believed to have originally been used as granary by a nearby farm. The property offers beautifully appointed accommodation with many lovely character features including exposed ceiling beams and ledge and brace internal doors. It is evident that the current owners have taken great care to maintain the property in recent years ensuring comfortable living through modern conveniences whilst still retaining a sense of charm and character. Improvements have been carried out to most aspects, including the conversion of a detached single storey barn into a one bedroomed annexe, which is ideal as additional guest accommodation or could be adapted further for a growing family.

Benefitting from double glazing throughout, including newly installed external doors, and with oil fired central heating, it truly is a wonderful home.

Flooded with natural light, the accommodation is arranged on the ground floor with an entrance porch, spacious entrance hall, cloakroom, breakfast kitchen, living room with feature fireplace and wood burning stove, and a dining room with French doors opening onto the garden. On the first floor a landing leads to the master bedroom, which enjoys a triple aspect with views across the surrounding countryside toward the Malvern Hills, two further bedrooms and a large shower room. There is newly laid wood effect laminate flooring in all principal rooms. The annexe comprises a shower room, kitchenette and bedroom with decorative fireplace.

Outside, The Stables enjoys an enclosed cottage style walled garden predominantly laid to lawn with well established shrub borders and attractive seating areas, including a secluded rear courtyard. A sweeping driveway leads to a generous area of parking and carport. There is a further single storey barn currently used as a workshop and store, which offers potential to become a home office or similar annexe accommodation.

The pathway continues to the rear of the property and leads to a secluded courtyard with raised beds and further seating, ideal for outside dining. The garden is fully enclosed with external lighting and outside water taps.
