This most attractive and appealing black and white detached cottage originally formed a pair of cottages dating from circa 1600, set in the centre of the desirable village of Hartlebury lying some three miles south of Kidderminster and ideally placed for commuters with excellent main road links to the West Midlands conurbation, Worcester City and the motorway network (M5).
Of particular note is the former detached double garage which has been converted a number of years ago to create very useful annexe accommodation, the ground floor area being entirely open plan with kitchenette at one end comprising a basic work surface area with sink and integrated electric oven plus window and door out to rear garden. A set of stairs lead up to a large first floor room with in-built wardrobe space and en-suite shower room. The annexe building could of course be easily reinstated as a double garage if so preferred.
Though not listed, the property lies within the village conservation area within easy walking distance of the village Primary School, local pub / restaurant and of course the church whose spire can be seen from the rear gardens.
Exhibiting a number of fine exposed timbers throughout, the property is notable for it's cruck-frame construction which is exposed at the first floor gable end within the third bedroom and bathroom.
There are in fact three bedrooms, the master bedroom approached off a half landing and measuring an impressive 18'8" x 14'2" overall with fitted twin double wardrobes and full width dresser with range of drawers.
The other two bedrooms each also benefit from fitted wardrobes and dresser / drawers whilst the bathroom has been recently re-fitted with a contemporary white suite to include vanity unit with inset wash hand basin and cabinet beneath plus close coupled wc, panelled bath with mixer shower above and foldaway screen, all complemented by tile effect flooring.
The ground floor accommodation includes a small entrance hall to the front giving way to a wonderfully spacious living room ( 18'10" x 16'5" ) with splendid inglenook fireplace incorporating log burner with copper canopy above plus concealed lighting and a stone hearth. Glazed double doors lead out to the rear garden whilst a split level step leads up to the dining room with attractive tiled floor and open plan access into the kitchen.
Recently re-fitted with an attractive and stylish range of cream wall and base cabinets, complemented by wood veneer work surfaces, the kitchen is also equipped with a comprehensive range of integrated appliances to include fridge, freezer, stainless steel electric oven, gas hob, canopy hood and microwave. A rear porch leads off the kitchen out to the rear garden.
The rear gardens are a particularly attractive feature of the house, enjoying an excellent degree of privacy with partial walled boundary and not at all overlooked from the rear. The garden is laid mainly to lawn with a timber summer house which may be available by way of separate negotiation. A gated pathway gives front to rear access to the right hand side of the cottage whilst a further gate leads out to the double width driveway parking space.
A new gas fired central heating system was fitted in 2014 and the usual mains services are connected.
