Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This charming two-bed cottage in a converted 17th century cider barn would make an ideal retirement property, a rural retreat for careworn city dwellers, or a stylish first home, with traditional timber box-frame style, 21st century convenience and none of the cost or limitation of a listed building.

The current owners have purchased their next property and are able to vacate within a matter of weeks.

The accommodation comprises a front container-garden and parking space, living room with vaulted stairwell, landing with walk-in wardrobe, two sunny bedrooms and a stylish bathroom. The fitted kitchen opens to a gravelled garden, leading to additional parking for 2 cars and a full height double garage/workshop.

The property is simple to maintain and economic to run. Located on a no-through road in the tiny hamlet of Middleton, just 10 minutes from Tenbury Wells and 15 minutes from Leominster, Ludlow and the national rail network, the M5 is only 30 miles away. Mistletoe Bough is a former farm, now wholly converted into 7 private dwellings with its own private drive, victorian street lamps and shared courtyard.

The property is centrally heated and double glazing is installed throughout. The external timbers and white render was freshly sealed and painted in July.

Living Room (6.4 x 5.0m): The part-timbered living room is floored in light oak.  A substantial brick fireplace accommodates a multi-fuel log burner which can keep the whole house warm in winter. A full-height, vaulted stairwell leads up to the landing:

Landing: A Velux window lends a light and airy feeling to the half timbered, fully-carpeted landing, leading to two bedrooms, a stylish bathroom and a walk-in wardrobe:

Walk-in Wardrobe: A purpose-built walk in wardrobe provides generous hanging and storage for clothes and shoes, even for my wife, and houses a programmable back-up immersion heater. There is a useful storage cupboard in the vault above.

Master Bedroom (3.4 x 2.7m): The fully-carpeted Master bedroom has a vaulted ceiling and exposed timbers.

Second Bedroom (3 x 3m): The fully-carpeted Second bedroom sleeps two and also has a vaulted ceiling, exposed timbers and a custom built fitted wardrobe/linen cupboard

Bathroom: The half-timbered, oak-floored bathroom includes a designer washbasin, compact WC, full size bath with tiled splash-back, shower screen and flush mounted shower. The bathroom benefits from a Velux window in the vault. Returning downstairs, the fitted kitchen is to your left:

Fitted Kitchen (4.1 x 3m): The custom fitted kitchen has a tiled floor and splash-backs. Equipment includes a Rangemaster 90 gas/electric range cooker, white ceramic 'One and a Half' sink, deep-block wooden work surfaces, concealed LEDs, integrated washing machine and tumble dryer. The  kitchen overlooks the garden:

Garden (4 x 11m): The low maintenance, gravelled garden is recently refurbished and features two brick patios, one in sun and another with a shady pergola. There is newly installed fencing with modesty trellis and an automatic courtesy light. An arched wrought-iron gate leads onto a shared courtyard:

Courtyard: The shared courtyard, also deeply gravelled, with parking for two cars in front of the adjacent double garage/workshop.

Double Garage/Workshop (6 x 3.9m): The double garage/workshop has a full height vaulted roof and double doors. The garage is lit by PIR controlled fluorescent lights and skylights. It is equipped switched mains sockets and a sensor spotlight illuminates the parking area at night.

Local Amenities: Pear Tree Cottage is in good decorative order and well maintained, so it's ready for you to arrange your furniture, sit back and enjoy the tranquility, or you could stay out morning, noon and night. Tenbury has its own cinema/theatre and swimming pool and Ludlow is famous for lively markets, boutique shopping and its food festival. The surrounding Teme valley is a 'best kept secret', steeped in history and delightful to meander though on foot or by car.
