Mole End is the quintessential English country cottage situated at the end of a lengthy private driveway which itself is found at the end of a private track serving a handful of other properties at Charlton on the outskirts of the village of Hartlebury.
Ideally placed for commuters to the West Midlands conurbation and Worcester City, the motorway network can be reached within about 15 minutes whilst this idyllic location could not be further removed from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
The origins of the property suggest a timber framed barn originally occupied the site with later brick extensions to form what was likely to have been three separate cottages at some time in the past.
The timber framework is now partly exposed in places providing a reminder of the original heritage of the property which was converted to a single dwelling in 1968.
The first glimpse of Mole End Cottage is found at the end of the farm track at Charlton where a lengthy private driveway leads up to the cottage with parking and turning area in front of the garage.
Neatly manicured level lawns run alongside the driveway sweeping around to the far side of the cottage all fringed by a woodland glade which slopes steeply away from the house and gardens thus creating a very private and secluded back drop to the property.
The gardens extend to just over half an acre providing an ideal setting for entertaining and family get-togethers.
Woodland walks are virtually on the doorstep with a public footpath leading off the farm track down into the wooded glade where runs a stream.
This is a wonderful family home providing spacious and characterful accommodation over two floors featuring five bedrooms and two bathrooms to the first floor which are served by two separate staircases.
This configuration lends itself very well to the creation of a guest suite or accommodation suitable perhaps for an older child still living at home.
The front entrance hall has a guest cloakroom leading off with further door opening through to a well proportioned open plan living room/dining room featuring exposed timber framework which helps to create two distinct areas, the living room having a full height brick fireplace with quarry tiled hearth suitable for open fire.
From the dining room a door leads through to an inner hallway with further access to small study and separate snug with exposed beams and brick fireplace housing a Coalbrookdale log burner. A further door from the snug gives access to a useful utility room with double drainer sink unit, plumbing for washing machine, space for tumble dryer and door to front driveway.
The large L shaped kitchen/breakfast room has been recently re-fitted with a stylish range of white wall and base cabinets, solid oak block work surfaces with sink unit and integral appliances to include electric oven and grill, ceramic hob, hood and dishwasher.
The kitchen window enjoys a delightful aspect overlooking the garden with side door leading out to the patio terrace and garden.
Mains water and electricity are both connected with drainage to a septic tank and an oil fired central heating system.
An external door to the side of the house gives access to a useful undercroft storage area.
To the side of the property is a detached double garage with twin up and over entrance doors plus side pedestrian access door. Next to the garage is a double width carport with the forecourt area illuminated by PIR security flood lighting.
This enchanting property must be seen to fully appreciate its beautiful position.
