Offers in Excess of £500,000
Full descriptionA Grade II listed property, on three floors plus cellar, with fine 19thcentury Georgian style faÇade with a cottage annexe in need of completion in the rear garden.
This charming residence dating back to the 18th century has the feel of a country home with its rural setting. The range of local amenities and schools within walking distance make this home ideal for families and commuters alike.
The ground floor is approached via a slatefloored passage, providing access to an inner hall, from which a fine oak dogleg staircase winds all the way up to the top floor, giving this property great character. On the ground floor are found a large panelled dining room, off which leads a large oakbeamed kitchen/breakfast room with modern fittings. Also on the ground floor is reception room currently being used as a bookshop, utility room, WC, workshop, and two walk-in pantries.
The first floor boasts the spacious southfacing master bedroom, with oak beams and ensuite bathroom, a sitting room, study, guest bedroom, and family bathroom. On the second floor are three bedrooms, a bathroom, large play room, and 2 walk-in loft spaces.
The house stands on a large plot, with patio, greenhouse, and southfacing garden. In the garden stands a refurbished 2storey brick and stone cottage annexe (see below). The property also has the advantage of vehicular access from Eagle Lane.
The ground floor front room has been used as a bookshop for thirty years, with three windows facing onto Cleobury Mortimer’s High Street, in an eye catching position opposite the town’s only pedestrian crossing. The cellar below the shop and the passage was tanked in 1988 to serve as the stock room for the bookshop. This room can easily be used as a living area converting the property back to full residential use.
The Cottage Annexe
Although this was virtually a ruin in the 1980’s, the present owners have since gained planning permission and carried out major building work to restore it including connections of electricity, mains water and mains drainage. It is currently classed as an Annexe to the main house and requires completion.
Despite having a village like atmosphere, Cleobury Mortimer provides a good range of amenities including shops, medical centre, dentist, churches, pubs, restaurants and tearooms. Granted its market town charter in 1253, this delightful town has many historical connections stretching back as far as the Norman Conquest, and including the Marcher Lords, remains of two castles, and a renowned crooked steeple. Its main street, almost unchanged since the late 19th century, displays a fine variety of traditional buildings, providing an attractive contrast to the surrounding countryside, easily accessed through a network of wellmaintained public footpaths and bridleways.
With Kidderminster station and the M5 both within a 30 minute drive and primary and secondary schools offering excellent educational facilities, this property is accommodating to both families and commuters alike. Located in the town centre this property is highly accessible.
Services: Electricity, BT landline, oilfired central heating with 21 radiators onsite. Mains water supply and drainage (Severn Trent WA).
