Farriers Cottage is a truly wonderful, former farm worker's cottage with later additions, which has been the subject of an extensive and loving restoration to provide deceptively spacious and immaculately presented accommodation throughout. As you would expect with expert craftsmanship no detail has been overlooked and with a wealth of character features the property is a wonderful blend of rustic charm and modern convenience. The use of high quality, natural materials and a mellow colour scheme throughout give the property a most warm and welcoming feeling, which undoubtedly makes the perfect family home. The property is set in a lovely village location with an abundance of country walks on the doorstep but with amenities close-by at Upton-upon-Severn, Eckington, Ripple and Twyning. The location also affords easy access to the M5 Motorway to the North and South, and M50 to South Wales and beyond.
The property is entered via a useful entrance porch, ideal for muddy boots and raincoats, which, with its solid oak stable door, exposed brick facades and tiled floor sets the scene for what is to come. Upon entering the property it is evident that character features are in abundance, with solid oak doors with thumb latch handles and cast iron hinges throughout, stripped wood skirting boards, exposed brickwork, fireplaces, traditional radiators and original stripped floorboards to name but a few. The cosy sitting room does not disappoint with the added bonus of a must have wood burning stove, perfect for winter's nights in by the fire, and a bespoke log store and storage cupboard.
The kitchen/dining room is an excellent space for entertaining guests around the kitchen table or preparing lunch on the working Rayburn. With a recently fitted shaker style kitchen with solid wood butcher's block work surfaces, integrated oven, hob, extractor, fridge/freezer and dishwasher all the modern conveniences are close at hand. Two useful storage cupboards are set either side of the exposed brick fireplace which would allow even the most ardent home chef to store all the necessary accoutrement.
A light and bright sun room leads on from the kitchen and with its French Doors to the garden provides a relaxing and tranquil spot while enabling the garden to be used as an additional entertaining space when the weather is good. A useful utility area is located just off the sun room and this provides an additional sink area with an integrated washing machine and floor and wall units providing yet more storage. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a beautiful modern shower room with shower cubicle, WC and wash hand basin.
The stairway leads to a small landing area with doors to the three bedrooms, family bathroom and airing cupboard. The master bedroom is located to the rear of the property and is light and spacious with a dressing room/nursery located just off. Two further double bedrooms are set to the front, both of which have additional storage and an abundance of character features. The family bathroom, which has recently been refurbished, is 'bang on trend' with brick pattern tiles and a white suite comprising a claw foot bath, WC, wash hand basin and separate shower cubicle. A useful airing cupboard with hot water cylinder and slatted shelves completes the accommodation.
Externally the property benefits from a raised border to the front giving real kerb appeal and off road parking with a carport. To the rear is a smart enclosed garden, mainly laid to lawn with raised borders, several seating areas and two useful storage sheds which have plumbing for a washing machine and power.
The property is offered for sale Freehold and viewings are by appointment only.
