A fine example of a character cottage within the conservation area of Bewdley. This house definitely needs to be viewed to appreciate the quality, room sizes and character. The property is deceptively spacious and has been sympathetically extended by the current owners.
Once over the threshold, you cannot help but stand in awe, taking in every inch, the beams and exposed wood work, the furniture and artifacts which all seem to fit so beautifully well together. Be amazed at what is on offer and enchanted by the fascination that it still very much in essence today.
A lot of attention to detail has gone into this home to retain its charm, with a clever mix of modern living and comfort's whilst not loosing the original character.
Partially colour washed and part exposed brick certainly add to the interest and appearance.
