Cherry Cottage
Approached off a country lane, Cherry Cottage is located amidst beautiful countryside set on the Shropshire/Worcestershire borders. Believed to date from the 17th Century, with later extensions, Cherry Cottage has been updated and improved over the years to create a delightful country home which retains a host of period features including exposed wall and ceiling timbers and feature stone walls, which are perfectly complimented by modern day comforts.

The front door opens into a spacious reception hall with cloakroom set off. A characterful sitting room has triple aspect windows with views over the garden and paddocks, a stone fireplace houses a Clearview wood burning stove and the former bread oven.

A well-proportioned dining room adjoins the kitchen which is fitted with attractive oak fronted units and sleek granite work surfaces. There is both an oil fired Aga and space for a gas range (bottled gas) as well as space for a dishwasher and space for an American style fridge/freezer. The kitchen also has French doors that open onto the terrace at the front of the house. An adjacent utility/boot room offers further storage, with sink, and plumbing for washing machine and tumble dryer. There is underfloor heating to the kitchen.

On the first floor, set off the landing are four double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master bedroom enjoys far reaching views and has a stylish en suite bath and shower room.

The Annexe
Detached from the house, the single storey annexe comprises sitting room, kitchen, shower room and bedroom and is currently used by the vendors for additional accommodation for guests, although has had previous use by previous owners as a holiday let. Equally, it would make for a great space for dependant relative, studio or office.

Agents Note: There are two footpaths which
cross the paddocks which are currently pending
re-routing.

Cherry Cottage enjoys a wonderfully peaceful location, benefiting from far reaching views over its own land and beyond. The nearby market town of Cleobury Mortimer offers a wealth of everyday facilities and amenities including independent shops, supermarkets, schools and doctors’ surgery.

A little further afield is the historic town of Ludlow which is renowned for its architecture, fine dining and vibrant festivals.

Communications in the area are excellent with the A456 running through to the West Midlands conurbation and the motorway network being picked up at Worcester. Train stations are found in Ludlow which is on the Manchester to Cardiff line and at Kidderminster, which has a direct line through to Birmingham New Street. Birmingham international is the nearest airport and its station also provides direct train line access to London Euston.

The surrounding countryside offers many recreational opportunities with fine walks on the doorstep. Hunting is with the Ludlow Hunt. There is regular racing at both Ludlow and Hereford as well as golf courses at Ludlow and Cleobury Mortimer.

Garden
The gardens surround Cherry Cottage being largely laid to lawn or gravelled with herbaceous borders and various patios are ideally placed for summer entertaining and take full advantage of the lovely garden setting and countryside views. Within the garden is a greenhouse, raised vegetable beds and a small orchard with Bramley apple, damson and walnut trees.

Equestrian facilities
There are 4 stables, a foaling stable and a tack room, all with electricity and water connected arranged around a yard with external lighting on sensors and direct access to the paddocks. Set adjoining the paddocks and to the front of the main drive is the arena which measures approximately 20m x 40m and has a sand and fibre base that has been revamped by Pegasus Arenas in recent years.

The two main paddocks lie to the front of the house and stable yard with the third to the rear of the property with separate access off the lane. The paddocks are enclosed by mature hedging as well as post and rail fencing. There is a spring fed natural pool, a haven for wildlife and a wonderful place to sit and enjoy the countryside setting. There is 3.96 acres of paddock amidst the 4.9 acres of land that the property sits in.

Outbuildings and garaging
There is a detached double garage accessed off the front driveway (although due to access restriction, useable for one car) with a room above which enjoys both internal and external access, currently used as storage, but an ideal space for a home office or gym. Accessed from the rear driveway is a wonderful new portal frame workshop and garage (approx. 8m x 9m) with power connected. There is also extensive parking and a further tractor shed/store.
