Conveniently situated just off the A449 on the corner of Charlton Lane at Torton, approx. two miles South of Kidderminster, this impressive Victorian detached house is ideally placed for access to all major local commercial centres whilst standing on the cusp of the countryside.
Indeed the gardens which extend to around half an acre are bordered by a stream to the rear boundary beyond which lies farmland, whilst Charlton Lane itself is a long and winding country lane that leads towards the village of Hartlebury.
The double entrance gates lead into an extensive gravelled parking area and forecourt, benefiting from a larger than average detached twin bay double garage whilst to the front of the house there is a gated garden pathway leading to the canopy porch and main entrance door.
The accommodation within is presented to an excellent standard throughout and indeed the property has been the subject of numerous improvement works in recent years. All bedrooms feature tv aerial connection points as does the kitchen, whilst mains electricity and water are both connected with drainage to septic tank, oil fired central heating and upvc double glazing.
This is an excellent family home with four sizeable double bedrooms, the master bedroom having a refitted en-suite shower room with suite comprising low level wc, pedestal hand basin, cubicle with mixer shower, full wall tiling, ceramic tiled quality flooring, shaver point and chrome heated towel rail. The bedroom has dual aspect windows enjoying views over the gardens as well as excellent storage space with three in-built double wardrobes.
The second bedroom also benefits from"Jack & Jill" access to the family bathroom which is well appointed with Karndean flooring, full wall tiling and a white suite featuring a vanity unit with wash hand basin, low level wc and panelled bath with screen and mixer shower above.
To the ground floor the large central reception hall has oak strip flooring, double doors to dining room and continues in open plan style to the spacious lounge/sitting room, situated to the rear of the house and approximately 25ft in width.
This area is arranged as two distinct areas, the sitting room area having double doors out to a timber decked patio with pergola overlooking the gardens, whilst the lounge area has a log burner set in stone effect surround with granite hearth plus alcove with door leading through to the formal dining room and a separate external door to the side garden area.
The "hub of the home" is undoubtedly the superbly spacious open plan breakfast kitchen/family room which provides an excellent further living space overlooking the garden.
The kitchen area features a good range of off-white cabinets with complementary work surfaces and appliances to include an integrated dishwasher and washing machine plus Leisure Range cooker and hob. In addition a large american fridge/freezer is plumbed in and included.
There is also a separate wc with exterior door accessible from the front forecourt area though this is not in working order.
Outside, the gardens and grounds are certainly a most appealing aspect of this property with extensive parking space for numerous vehicles in the gravelled forecourt, beyond which steps lead down to a sun patio and extensive level lawns. A stream runs to the rear boundary beyond which there is open farmland and the stream has been partly diverted at some point in the past to provide a larger natural pond area.
The property is situated within less than 10 minutes driving time of Kidderminster where there is access to a full range of amenities including main line railway station. There is also a railway station with regular services between Worcester and Birmingham situated at Hartlebury whilst the motorway network (M5 j7) and Worcester City are both also very accessible via the A449 main road.
Fordbrook Cottage is well deserving of a personal inspection for purchasers seeking a substantial and private family home with extensive gardens in a semi rural position within easy reach of all transport links.
Prospective purchasers should be aware that the property will be sold subject to a restrictive covenant which means the footprint of the property cannot be increased.
