A charming character cottage originally dating back some 200 years with later extensions to now provide deceptively spacious family accommodation arranged in courtyard style to include separate brick built studio annexe offering ideal guest accommodation.
The gardens and grounds are an outstanding feature of the property, with a wonderful outlook across the property's own valley hillside which extends to almost 4 acres providing the most delightful environment which is home to an abundance of wildlife.
Positioned within the rural area of Bliss Gate, situated just 3 miles from the Georgian riverside town of Bewdley, this location is much favoured by commuters to Kidderminster and the West Midlands conurbation, whilst being surrounded by some of North Worcestershire's finest countryside including the Wyre Forest. There is a well regarded local pub/ restaurant within a 5 minute walk whilst the nearby village of Far Forest offers a very good local convenience store and post office , plus carvery restaurant and primary schooling, about three quarter of a mile away.
Approached over a central gravelled courtyard with adjacent lawned foregarden, the house forms an L-shaped configuration bordered by the detached studio annexe, converted from an original stable, makes ideal guest accommodation or home office with spacious ground floor room, storage and shower room plus mezzanine.
There is driveway parking for a number of cars whilst to the rear there is a further detached former stables building, now used a garage/ workshop which offers further conversion potential subject to the necessary consents.
The principal accommodation is accessed via the central reception hall with door to the ground floor bathroom fitted with Jacuzzi bath, low level w.c. and wash basin.
The lounge, a converted cowshed, is arranged as two distinct areas namely the sitting room with stone faced feature wall and open fire and living room which in turn leads to a ground floor bedroom five (currently used as a study).
The kitchen, the family heart of the property, is a wonderfully spacious and comprehensively fitted open plan room incorporating breakfast area, snug area and timber porch / boot room with stable door.
The kitchen has Mediterranean clay floor tiling throughout and is fitted with a range of wall and base units with granite work surface over, integral appliances to include AGA, dishwasher, double oven with hob and extractor hood and fridge whilst the utility room has a Belfast sink, plumbing and space for automatic washing machine and houses the oil-fired central heating boiler.
A more formal dining space leads off the kitchen, measuring 23' 7" x 11'7", an ideal entertaining room with open fireplace and French door to second patio, which has planning permission for a conservatory. Stairs lead up to the first floor.
To the first floor, the master suite has a hallway with large fitted storage and access to the bathroom which is fitted in white with panelled bath having Mira shower over, low flush w.c., wash basin, part tiled walls and two Velux skylights. The master bedroom is fitted with a range of wardrobes and has windows to two sides affording plenty of natural light and enjoying views over the rear garden and meadow.
From the split landing, the secondary open landing space has the potential for a further bedroom, indeed is currently used as an open through bedroom with in-built storage and door to bedroom three.
The second bedroom, a further heavily beamed double room with views towards the rear meadow is accessed via the lobby entrance with en-suite shower room fitted with modern suite to include curved corner shower cubicle, low flush w.c. and pedestal wash basin.

Outside, the tended gardens surround the rear of the cottage with paved patio and seating terrace laid against the house. Steps lead down to the lower levels passing sweeping lawns interspersed with shrubs and trees along with the designated orchard area and kitchen garden and greenhouse.
At the lowest point a stream separates the gardens from the meadow, a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest, featuring a number of wild grasses, fungi, orchids and wooded blue bell dell. The hillside which rises to a level area which is currently used for grazing cattle for part of the year however is also a place from which to enjoy the breath-taking natural surroundings and view back towards this pretty cottage.
Space, versatility, character and seclusion can all be found here, together with the most enchanting natural adventure playground for children. A personal inspection is essential to fully appreciate the unique setting and lifestyle which The Steps affords.
