A wonderful opportunity to acquire a charming Victorian double fronted detached cottage with large garden and outbuildings, ripe for renovation and extension subject to the necessary planning approvals.

Salford Priors - Salford Priors is a quiet and very pretty village located approximately two miles from Bidford on Avon and almost equidistant from the three larger towns of Evesham, Stratford upon Avon, and Redditch. Characterised by a mixture of charming period properties and more modern homes, Salford Priors has its own church and primary school and various active community groups. The village is set in open farmland and has a network of rural walking routes which take full advantage of the countryside around.

The Cottage - This wonderful late 19th Century cottage is situated close to the heart of the village, set back from the road and surrounded by generous gardens. Many of the original features have been retained, including the lovely latticed windows to the front and sides of the property and the original outbuildings to the rear; the house is an ideal candidate for renovation and improvement, and for extension subject to the necessary planning consents.

The double fronted facade of the house with its central brick and timber gabled porch makes an immediate impression; approached through a neat wrought iron gate and up a central path, the front door opens to a small hallway with red and black 'chequerboard' quarry tiles.

There are two reception rooms to the front of the house; the sitting room retains its feature fireplace and has pretty original latticed windows to the front and side.

The dining room also has the original fireplace and latticed windows to front and side; there is a door to the stairway, and parquet flooring. This room leads through to a rear lobby with original blue brick flooring, having the bathroom and a small kitchen off, and access to the rear gardens. The kitchen and bathroom would benefit from updating but subject to the necessary consents would also offer an excellent opportunity to reconfigure and/or extend the property.

Currently the kitchen has a range of built in floor and wall cabinets, a useful under stairs storage cupboard, and evidence of a small fireplace which has been bricked up. The double glazed window overlooks the rear gardens.

The bathroom is fitted with a white suite comprising panelled bath, wash hand basin and low level wc, and has a large obscure double glazed window allowing plenty of natural light, and a shelved airing cupboard.

The stairway to the first floor leads to a small landing with three bedrooms off. The two good sized rooms to the front of the property benefit from high ceilings and pretty gabled latticed windows; both retain the original fireplaces although these are currently sealed, and original floorboards.

The third bedroom, to the rear of the property, has a double glazed window overlooking the gardens and could potentially make a good sized family bathroom, or could be incorporated into a larger extension subject to the necessary planning consents.

Outside - The grounds surrounding the cottage are a tremendous addition to what is already an extremely desirable property. To the front is a shallow sloping lawn with shrubs and borders on either side of the central path, and a beautiful magnolia tree. Tall, well kept hedges to either side of the little front gate screen the cottage from the road.

To one side of the property a tarmacadam drive leads to the prefabricated single garage, and provides off road parking for another one or two vehicles, with a large flower border to the side. The driveway also gives access to the rear gardens. There is a generous lawned area to the opposite side of the cottage with shrubs and trees, continuing around to the rear.

Behind the house is the quintessential cottage garden, with a slabbed path dividing large, productive vegetable gardens on either side. A trellis screens the brick built and tiled outbuildings which were constructed at the same time as the main house and were formerly used for animal husbandry. There is a variety of fruit trees, and planted borders immediately behind the house.
