Description: Andrew Grant are extremely proud to offer for sale this outstanding character cottage on the edge of Abberley village. The property enjoys an incredible rural location bordering countryside on several sides and with amazing views of the nearby hills. Standing in grounds in excess of one acre the cottage is completely secluded from neighbours without being isolated.

These bridleways lead in many directions and provide superb walks taking in amazing views of the stunning Abberley clock tower and way beyond to the Clee Hills and the Malvern Hills.

The village itself is also within easy walking distance from here and provides a number of amenities and points of interest, including the Manor Arms country pub/restaurant, a primary school and many historic buildings dating back hundreds of years. At the neighbouring village of Great Witley less than three miles distant can be found a local stores, a doctors’ surgery and the wonderful Witley Court home and gardens. Abberley has good connections with larger towns and conurbations, with the riverside town of Stourport less than five miles away, historic Bewdley around seven miles, and the cathedral city of Worcester around twelve miles from here.

The property is truly outstanding, having been transformed in the last two years by the current owners who have undertaken a no expense spared project of renovation and extension. All the amazing works have been done tastefully and sympathetically, maintaining the rich character of the original property and blending this with a stylish modern twist. Much has gone in to the project, including a superb timber clad two storey extension incorporating a fantastic balcony, a new double glazed conservatory with glass roof, complete redecoration including quality kitchen, shower room and bathroom, and also re-plumbing throughout and the changeover from a private water supply to mains. The extension has provided a large living room with adjoining family room/bedroom five and a master suite on the first floor with accompanying en suite, dressing room and French doors out to the balcony.

The property is now accessed via an excellent reception hall which is incredibly spacious and welcoming, with space for a settle, coat hooks, radiator and lovely tiled flooring. From here an archway leads to the inner hallway and a square doorway opens on to the living room. The newly added living room is incredibly spacious and light with double glazed windows to side aspect, down-lighters, and two sets of French doors leading to the gardens. An internal door from here leads to a very versatile reception room which is ideal as a family room, cinema room or fifth bedroom. This has down-lighters, double glazed window and door leading to the rear of the property.

The atmospheric inner hallway has character aplenty and features wall lights, exposed beams, quarry tiled flooring, stairs rising to the first floor with useful bespoke storage underneath, and doors leading to the shower room, dining room and kitchen. The dining area is lovely and light and is open plan to the kitchen providing a nice flow to this section of the house. This area has quarry tiled flooring, exposed beams, window overlooking the garden, wall light and internal door to the snug. The snug is great as an office or cosy sitting room and features a multi-fuel burner set within a period fireplace, exposed beams, three windows and two wall lights.

The spacious kitchen area flows nicely from the dining room and has been beautifully refitted by the current owners to a high quality standard and within keeping to the property’s period roots. Comprising matching wall and base units, oak work surfaces with inset one and a half ceramic sink, multi-coloured LED plinth lights, aga, integrated oven and hob, dishwasher and washing machine, space and plumbing for a fridge freezer.

The newly erected conservatory is fully double glazed with glass roof, exposed brickwork and door leading to the gardens. The excellent downstairs shower room has been completely renovated to a stylish contemporary finish and features an infinity mirror, double shower cubicle, heated chrome towel rail, pedestal wash basin, low level WC, exposed beams and tiled flooring.

The first floor accommodation has been also been completely overhauled by the sellers and offers spacious rooms throughout and lots of light flooding in. The master suite is a new addition and includes a spacious double bedroom featuring down-lighters, two double glazed windows to front aspect with delightful rural views, double glazed French doors leading to the balcony and internal doors leading to the en suite and dressing room. The en suite is beautifully fitted and includes panelled bath with shower above, ‘Metro’ style tiling, down-lighters, towel rail and shaver point. The useful dressing room has radiator and fitted wardrobe. The sizeable balcony extends to the side and rear of the property and provides a great vantage point from which to enjoy the grounds and fantastic views beyond.

The three further bedrooms are all spacious double rooms and provide lovely views of the gardens and hills beyond. The family bathroom is generous in size also and beautifully renovated to a high standard, including a freestanding roll-top bath, ‘Metro’ style tiling, radiator and towel rail, down-lighters, wood flooring and two windows to rear aspect.

The grounds belonging to One Acre Cottage are a truly superb feature and offer the resident a tranquil environment which is completely secluded from any neighbours. From anywhere in the gardens one can enjoy the peaceful sound of running water emanating from a small stream skirting the boundary. The grounds are accessed via double gates which lead to a sweeping gravelled parking area providing space for many vehicles. From here a gravelled pathway leads to the front door and the rest of the grounds, which include lawned areas, raised decking with inset swim spa (which may be included in the sale subject to negotiation), Victorian style lamp, fantastic covered Tiki bar and accompanying decked area great for al fresco dining and entertaining, raised beds and steps leading down to the stream and garden gate leading to a lovely natural orchard. In early spring the gardens are awash with snowdrops and throughout the grounds are many delightful plants and trees including magnolia, palm trees and mature beech hedging. The sellers inform us that there is lapsed planning permission for the addition of an outbuilding to be located in the orchard area. We believe this permission was previously granted a certificate of lawfulness and the building would have featured a games room, gym and shower room (for further information go to Malvernhills.gov.uk and in the planning section use the reference 09/00498/cpu).

Agent’s Note: Please note there is a public right of way across the driveway of this property which then exits in to an adjoining field at the rear of the cottage.
