The Garrods is a charming and deceptively spacious detached country cottage fronting the lane at Gorst Hill, a delightful rural setting just 3.5 miles from the riverside town of Bewdley whilst being conveniently placed for commuters to the West Midlands conurbation.

The living accommodation extends to 2437 sq ft, providing a most substantial family home thought to date back to the 16th century and having been significantly extended from the original building, the essence of which still remains to some areas; the sitting room with beams to ceiling, a bedroom with beams to walls and the attractive inglenook style fireplace.

The interior provides a certain amount of scope for some general cosmetic updating, though there is huge potential to create a large and capacious country home with superb family living space.

The living room has a wonderful open plan L-shaped configuration making an ideal family living space with formal dining area.

The separate sitting room features a magnificent fireplace fitted with multi fuel burner and oak beam inset above.

The dining kitchen to the rear is fitted with a smart range of wall and base cabinets with contrasting shaped work surfaces and Franke one & half bowl inset sink, space for American style fridge freezer and tiled flooring which continues into the breakfast space having triple glazed, full height fixed patio window looking out over the patio area. Note: the Aga may be available by separate negotiation.

From the kitchen an interconnecting glazed hallway leads to the garden room which has sliding doors out to the patio and provides access to the additional rooms comprising Study, Utility Area and general storage cupboards. The property also features a downstairs cloakroom and a useful airing cupboard to the first floor.

The master bedroom is fitted with a comprehensive range of furniture to include wardrobes, drawers, storage cupboards and display shelving. The en-suite shower room has been refitted in recent years with a modern white suite to comprise low level w.c., pedestal wash basin, chrome heated towel rail, fully tiled walls and cubicle with sliding doors and thermostatic shower.

Three further bedrooms are all of good proportions and enjoy the leafy aspect of the surrounding countryside.

The principal bathroom has a coloured suite with panelled bath fitted with Mira mixer taps & shower attachment, low flush w.c. and pedestal wash basin plus chrome heated towel rail.

The beautifully kept gardens of around three quarters acre are arranged in two parts, separated naturally by hedging to provide a large lawned expanse inset with orchard and kitchen plot, then towards the house, the lawns continue and are interspersed with trees and edged with flower beds. The rockery and pond encloses the paved patio / seating area close to the house.

Parking is to the side within the double garage having electrically operated doors and personal door to the side.
