Location & Description
This interesting property enjoys a convenient location less than a mile from the well served and busy riverside town of Upton upon Severn, which has a comprehensive range of amenities including shops, a post office, two small supermarkets, several pubs and restaurants, a highly respected modern surgery/medical centre, churches and excellent educational facilities at both primary and secondary levels. The town is well known for its summer music festivals and for its riverside marina. The larger towns of Tewkesbury (8 miles), Ledbury (10 miles) and Malvern (10 miles) are also close at hand and the property is only about 4 miles from junction 1 of the M50 motorway.
Mews Cottage is part of a large stable block that once served the local manor house (Hill House). It dates back to the early 1900s. The property, along with two adjacent homes, was converted in 1982 into an interesting and very striking two storey detached dormer bungalow. Though it may benefit from some general updating it still offers spacious and flexible two storey accommodation with oil fired central heating and a mixture of double glazed and secondary double glazed windows. The ground floor in particular is generous with a cloakroom, two halls, a lounge, separate dining room, large kitchen/breakfast room, two bedrooms and a spacious bathroom. On the first floor a galleried landing leads to the third bedroom. Undoubtedly, however, one of the great strengths of Mews Cottage is its setting off a private driveway serving the three properties in the complex. The beautifully landscaped and mature garden is extremely sheltered and provides variety and interest throughout the year. It has been the pride and joy of the owners. The bungalow has the added advantage of a large garage and of additional private parking. GROUND FLOOR

The property enjoys a lovely approach across a private driveway serving Mews Cottage and two neighbouring homes. Mews Cottage itself has a brick paviour hard standing area that can accommodate four cars and a tarmac driveway that has space for four more and leads to a large detached GARAGE 18' x 12 - the former stable lad's quarters) of brick construction with power and water connected and log burner and chimney. The garage has a window and loft above, which might enable it to be converted into an alternative use. A short pathway leads to the front of the property and to a gated pathway to the side where there is also a small GREENHOUSE. The garden is a delight and clearly the pride and joy of the former owners. It is laid to a large level lawn with a variety of imaginatively planned and planted herbaceous rose and shrub borders. Built into this layout is a brick paved seating area and patio (a real sun trap) and an enclosed stone water feature. Two of the boundaries consist of woodland and trees making this garden particularly exciting for young children. Concealed within the trees are two GARDEN SHEDS (10' x 6' and 6' x 4' respectively) with light and power and a WOOD STORE with lighting. At strategic points there is an outside tap, external power point and the oil tank which serves the boiler. Amongst the many trees there are three particularly fine specimens including a Tamarisk, a large Magnolia and Acer.
