An interesting, spacious period cottage originally dating back some 200 years with later extensions to include separate studio/guest accommodation with mezzanine, garage with workshop and stabling all surrounded by pleasant cottage gardens and wild flower meadow amounting to in just under 4 acres .

Positioned within the rural district of Rock, situated just 3 miles from the nearest town of Bewdley, this location is favoured for its accessibility to Kidderminster and the West Midlands whilst enjoying the surrounding countryside setting. The local pub/ restaurant is within a short walk and the village store and post office about three quarter of a mile away.

This charming property is approached over a central gravelled courtyard passing the lawned foregarden and steps up to the spacious and versatile accommodation. The separate studio, a converted stable, makes ideal guest accommodation with spacious ground floor room, storage and shower room plus mezzanine, whilst the former rear stables, now the garage, measures over 27ft in total width to include a most useful & spacious workshop area or stabling.

The principal accommodation is accessed via the central reception hall with door to the ground floor bathroom fitted with Jacuzzi bath, low level w.c. and wash basin.

The lounge, a converted cowshed, is arranged as two distinct areas namely the sitting room with stone faced feature wall and open fire and living room which in turn leads to a ground floor bedroom five (currently used as a study).

The kitchen, the family heart of the property, is a wonderfully spacious and comprehensively fitted open plan room incorporating breakfast area, snug area and timber porch / boot room with stable door.

The kitchen has Mediterranean clay floor tiling throughout and is fitted with a range of wall and base units with granite work surface over, integral appliances to include AGA, dishwasher, double oven with hob and extractor hood and fridge whilst the utility room has a Belfast sink, plumbing and space for automatic washing machine and houses the oil-fired central heating boiler.

A more formal dining space leads off the kitchen, measuring 23' 7" x 11'7", an ideal entertaining room with open fireplace and French door to second patio, which has planning permission for a conservatory. Stairs lead up to the first floor.

To the first floor, the master suite has a hallway with large fitted storage and access to the bathroom which is fitted in white with panelled bath having Mira shower over, low flush w.c., wash basin, part tiled walls and two Velux skylights. The master bedroom is fitted with a range of wardrobes and has windows to two sides affording plenty of natural light and enjoying views over the rear garden and meadow.

From the split landing, the secondary open landing space has the potential for a further bedroom, indeed is currently used as an open through bedroom with in-built storage and door to bedroom three.

The second bedroom, a further heavily beamed double room with views towards the rear meadow is accessed via the lobby entrance with en-suite shower room fitted with modern suite to include curved corner shower cubicle, low flush w.c. and pedestal wash basin.

Bedroom three, a double,has views over rear lawn and patio and further aspect overlooking fore garden and courtyard.

Outside, the tended gardens surround the rear of the cottage with paved patio and seating terrace laid against the house. Steps lead down to the lower levels passing sweeping lawns interspersed with shrubs and trees along with the designated orchard area and kitchen garden and greenhouse.

At the lowest point a stream separates the gardens from the meadow, a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest, featuring a number of wild grasses, fungi, orchids and wooded blue bell dell. The hillside which rises to a level area which is currently used for grazing cattle for part of the year however is also a place from which to enjoy the breath-taking natural surroundings and view back towards this pretty cottage.

From the approach one would not guess the size and versatility of the accommodation, nor the unique setting, therefore personal inspection of this character cottage is recommended to appreciate all it has to offer.
