Little Orchard is a unique property which offers the best of both worlds with its location and surroundings, set within approximately an acre of land which adjoins the Cleobury Road below comprising woodland, lawns, orchard area with apple and damson trees and well stocked natural gardens including an abundance of bluebells throughout springtime.
One could be forgiven for thinking the property is in a remote rural position, yet surprisingly is situated within walking distance of the Georgian town of Bewdley with its boutiques, shops, cafes and restaurants, not to forget the riverside and local walks.
This attractive period property originally comprised three cottages with various ancillary buildings and individual garden plots, recorded on the Worcestershire Tithe Map of 1843, the landholding was then split into several tenancies all owned by Sir Thomas Edward Winnington Baronet.
The property is approached over the historic footpath which now provides vehicular access known as The Racks and the entrance to Little Orchard is via the rear stable door into the breakfast kitchen which is fitted with a range of cabinets with display units, blockwork flooring and Rangemaster cooker.
A separate utility room off the kitchen has plumbing for washing machine and quarry tiled floor which continues into the guest cloakroom, fitted with low flush w.c. and wash hand basin.
Steps lead up from the kitchen into the formal dining room which features an unusual and eye catching brick fireplace.
A door from the inner lobby leads to the conservatory having prime position from which to enjoy the garden. Having a solid roof, the room can be enjoyed all year around.
The main living room with log burner leads off to a ground floor bedroom having en-suite shower room fitted with a white suite to comprise shower cubicle, low flush w.c. and vanity wash basin.
To the first floor, the spacious landing with original ornamental fireplace leads to the master bedroom with high pitched ceiling, exposed beams and fitted wardrobes whilst the second bedroom, also a double room has a leafy aspect over the gardens.
The principal bathroom has been recently refitted and proudly displays exposed wall beams offset by the white suite comprising claw foot bath, low level w.c., pedestal wash basin and separate shower cubicle.
The mature gardens have evolved over the years to provide wonderful sections, each different from the next. This varies from carpets of bluebells and snowdrops in early spring, to mature apple and damson trees fruiting in the autumn; And includes the paved patio area and gently rolling lawns, to the expansive lawned amenity land, an ideal outdoor entertaining space, all of which are bordered by the wooded area which leads down to the roadside beyond.
Parking is through double wooden gates to a block paved area which has ample space to the side should further parking be required.
Full planning permission has been granted by Wyre Forest District Council for a two storey extension to the existing property to add a further 3 bedrooms & bathroom plus a large open plan wing to the ground floor along with detached double garage (16/0267/FULL).
