Open House Worcester are very proud to bring to the market this truly unique 15th Century cottage.

When the current owner told me “Mercia Cottage has been hugging people for years” I found it a strange statement but having spent time there I can fully understand how its charm, character & cosiness enfolds those within and “hugs” them....

Set in the heart of the historic and ever popular village of Offenham, situated close to the village maypole which is still in use each year, & boasts a thriving maypole dance team, this recently re-ridged, thatched cottage, set within what is believed to be the longest row of thatch in Worcestershire is brimming full of charm, character and oozes huggability.

The moment you park outside this 15th Century cottage you will be intrigued at what lies before you and entering through the wood panel entrance door just heights your expectations as you are initially presented with a delightful living room with exposed wall and ceiling timbers, an inglenook fireplace with wood burner and decorative bead oven, yes you are now back in time.....

You’re now experiencing your own slice of history as you discover the beautiful dining room with exposed wall and ceiling timber with superb wooden floor, next is the small “cottage” kitchen with bespoke wooden cupboards and drawers, a functional bathroom and finally a utility room to help support a degree of modern living.

Moving upstairs and you are bought back in time with a wealth of character and a truly stunning master bedroom offering original elm door & matching flooring, with “dead man’s drop” still set within the flooring timbers, along all the stories that must surely hold! Bedroom two again offers exposed wall and ceiling timbers to further enhance Mercia Cottage as a truly unique property holding so much beauty for the desiring eye.

But the beauty this property holds isn’t just inside, the mature rear garden with raised patio area has an array of beautiful boarder plants, shrubs, bushes and trees, including fruit bearing Cox and cooking apple trees, as well as a Conference pear trees, offers a tranquil retreat to those who live here. Its beauty is further enhanced by the stunning rear views over open fields.

Viewing is a must for those interested in being hugged by a slice of history......
