This is a rare opportunity to acquire a character barn conversion within the sought after hamlet of Caunsall on the Kinver/ Stourbridge side of Kidderminster within pleasant rural surroundings including the nearby Staffs-Worcs canal and River Stour.
Converted in 1988, Riverside Court comprises three individual dwellings, two of which front Caunsall Road whilst No.3 is set discreetly back, forming the larger part of the original structure and approached over an extensive gravelled driveway with private garden areas and parking.
It should be noted that each of the other two barns have a right of access, passing in front of No.3 to reach their garages which are both situated in a a rear courtyard immediately to the rear of No.3. Additionally within the gravelled driveway area belonging to No.3 is a double width turning space which is used for visitor parking.
Benefiting from mains gas, electricity, water and drainage, the property is also double glazed with a combination of wood-effect upvc and wooden-framed units in addition to which there is a gas fired central heating system, last serviced in 2016.
The interior is presented to a good standard throughout, offering a well designed and spacious layout whilst displaying a number of attractive exposed timbers which add to the rustic charm and character of the accommodation.
The central hallway features a terracotta tiled floor with staircase off to the first floor and useful cloaks cupboard beneath, whilst other doors radiate off to the principal living areas. Just off the reception hall is a guest cloakroom with suite comprising low level wc and wash hand basin.
The kitchen enjoys a pleasant outlook across the gravelled forecourt and was re-fitted circa 2015 with a range of cream wall and base cabinets including a full height slide-out larder unit complemented by matching granite effect work surfaces to include a one-and-a-half bowl sink unit plus integrated 'Siemens' electric double oven and five ring gas hob plus Siemens fridge/freezer and freestanding Siemens dishwasher. There is also ample space for a breakfast table and chairs.
A door gives access from the kitchen to the rear utility room with fitted work surfaces to two sides incorporating a sink unit and space for both automatic washing machine and tumble dryer. A further door opens out from the utility room to the rear courtyard where the neighbours garages are situated and where the property owns a small paved area with greenhouse.
The spacious lounge (17'3" x 13'0") has a splendid exposed brick feature fireplace with log burning stove, stone mantel and oak crossbeam above, plus extended brick and stone side plinth.
A range of full height window panels and double doors lead through to the conservatory which was added with the benefit of planning consent in 1998 and more recently replaced with a upvc framework in 2015, incorporating wood-effect upvc double glazed panels to three sides built over a brick base with tiled floor and double doors out to the walled garden.
Leading off the lounge is a separate dining room which also has a pair of glazed double doors looking onto the walled garden area and has a further door returning to the hallway.
To the first floor there are four bedrooms, the larger two rooms being of excellent proportions and both featuring low level windows in addition to ceiling skylights, together with attractive exposed timbers.
The master bedroom has an en-suite shower room with wood laminate flooring, travertine effect tiling to half height, low level wc, pedestal hand basin and large cubicle with thermostat control mixer shower.
The second bedroom has an interesting feature with a split stable-type door opening out to a flight of stone steps, with useful log store beneath.
Adjacent to this bedroom is the principal bathroom which was re-fitted in 2017 featuring a stylish contemporary vanity unit with close-coupled wc and Corian surface with sculpted hand basin. Additionally there is a panelled bath with shower attachment and radiator.
The third and fourth bedrooms are both of similar proportions both measuring 10'9" in length. On the opposite side of the landing is a useful study area.
Outside, a range of outbuildings at the edge of the courtyard incorporate garages for each of the three barns. The garage belonging to No.3 is of a generous width with up and over entrance door, electric power and lighting and a flight of wooden stairs leading up to a useful mezzanine storage area.
The private walled garden accessible from both the conservatory and dining room features a small shaped lawn, ornamental pond and brick paved patio with seating area.
On the opposite side of the forecourt is a private garden area belonging to No.3, enclosed with low level wrought iron fencing and providing a further brick paved sitting out area which takes advantage of the afternoon sun. In this part of the garden there is an ironwork arbor and water feature, in addition to which there are two waterproof electrical sockets.
Caunsall is a small hamlet with a scattering of individual houses and a popular old fashioned pub (The Anchor) with the pleasant rural surroundings giving opportunity for numerous country walks including along the nearby Staffs-Worcs canal between Kinver and Wolverley.
Three quarters of a mile away the village of Cookley has an excellent range of amenities including late night convenience store, doctors surgery, post office, primary school, church, playing fields and social club plus fast food takeaways and village pubs.
The location is particularly desirable for commuters to the West Midlands conurbation, retaining an unspoiled rural charm whilst being within easy reach of all local commercial centres. Viewing is highly recommended.
