Location & Description:
Bluebell Cottage enjoys a convenient position in the small close knit community of Ryall, less than a mile from the historic and lively riverside town of Upton upon Severn where there is a full range of amenities including shops, a bank, two small supermarkets, several busy public houses, Doctors and Dentists surgeries and schools at both primary and secondary levels (Hanley Castle Secondary 11-18 years). The town is well known for its social scene with its renowned summer festivals and riverside marina. Transport communications are well catered for. Junction 1 of the M50 is less than three miles away. The larger cultural spa town of Great Malvern (eight miles), the cities of Worcester (ten miles), Cheltenham and Gloucester are all within easy striking distance.
The property itself is the epitome of a classic detached English cottage with part timbered elevations and features and a strikingly picturesque facade. It has been the subject of complete renovation and refurbishment by the present owners who have transformed it into a beautifully presented home blending much of its original character with many more contemporary features. The extended ground floor accommodation is extremely versatile and spacious with an attractive bespoke porch leading to a charming sitting room, very large and well equipped kitchen/breakfast room, separate utility room and cloakroom and a lovely conservatory which doubles as the main family/dining room. Upstairs there are two bedrooms and a spacious bathroom. The house has oil fired central heating and double glazed windows.
Bluebell Cottage is situated at the end of a small private cul-de-sac and is approached across a long and wide gravel driveway that provides off road parking for at least six vehicles. This leads to what at first glance seems to be a garage block but which does in fact have consent as a fitness centre/gym. It is temporarily converted into a small annexe comprising a kitchen/utility room and a large guest's bedroom with its own en-suite wet room and WC.
The perfect finishing touch is provided by a lovely, larger than average, level garden which has been sympathetically reshaped and designed to provide interest and colour throughout the year. It sets the cottage off beautifully with its well kept lawns, pathways and well stocked borders. At the rear of the house there is a block paviour and flagstone patio and one more unusual feature worthy of special note, namely a covered seating area designed in the "French Cuisine" style. Also within the grounds is an original outside WC that has been restored and refitted with a modern suite.
Attractively designed and built by the current owners this porch sets off the front facade of the cottage perfectly. It has a solid front door leading into the

This single storey detached building is located at the end of the driveway and on initial inspection is designed to resemble a garage.

From the end of the cul-de-sac the property is approached over a wide and long gravel driveway providing parking for at least six vehicles. A gated entrance leads into the garden. The front garden itself can be separately approached via a small private gated entrance and pathway that leads up to the porch. This pathway is flanked on each side by level lawns and a series of beautifully manicured, imaginatively designed and well stocked shrub and flower borders providing interest, colour and variety throughout the year. The garden itself is enclosed by an attractive paling fence. Within the grounds there are three silver birch trees as well as a garden hand pump with stone trough below.
Gravel pathways continue in each direction around the house. To one side a gated entrance leads to a paved path alongside which is the oil tank and a garden SHED 6' x 4' of timber construction. To the other side of the house an attractive trellised arch supporting a mature wisteria leads on to a large area of block paving between the main residence and the annexe. This in turn leads to the rear garden which is laid to lawn with mature shrub borders, further block paved and flagstone seating areas. There is also a small brick OUTBUILDING which once contained the original external WC. This has been fully restored with a new and fully functioning suite.
The focal point of the rear garden is an attractive covered seating area designed in the classic "French Cuisine" style for outdoor socialising and eating. It is constructed of brick with solid timber supports and a pitched tiled roof. At strategic points there is an outside tap and external lighting.
The agents have been advised that planning has been granted for the construction of a two storey garden room with a first floor bedroom and en-suite facility.
