Location & Description

The property enjoys a quiet setting close to the centre of the highly regarded village of Alfrick close to the Herefordshire border with Worcestershire and approximately six miles from Great Malvern, eight miles from the City of Worcester and just seven miles from Bromyard. The village itself has a community hall, a charming church and shop, the Fox Inn at nearby Lulsley and two nature/wildlife reserves. There are also local bus services to provide access to local primary schools at Suckley and Leigh Sinton and secondary schools in Malvern and Worcester. Transport and communications are good. Junction 7 of the M5 motorway south of Worcester is within reasonable striking distance and there are mainline railway stations in both Great Malvern and Worcester. The village is not only surrounded by the two nature reserves referred to earlier but also by some of the most unspoilt countryside in the region. It is the perfect spot for anyone who enjoys outdoor life, walking or riding.

Swan Cottage is a striking detached period house which in recent years has been the subject of complete renovation and refurbishment. It is beautifully presented and is now the classic temporary home with an excellent energy rating, LPG central heating (with underfloor heating at ground level and radiators on the first floor) and newly replaced double glazed windows. Additional insulation has been fitted to assist with energy saving. The current accommodation includes a canopy porch which leads to a good sized reception hall, an open plan lounge/dining room (with inglenook style fireplace and wood burner) a particularly well equipped kitchen/breakfast room (with integrated fridge/freezer, hob, double oven, dishwasher and washing machine), a cloakroom with WC and three bedrooms, one of which has its own en-suite shower room. There is also separate family bathroom, also with bath and separate shower. The house has fitted carpets at first floor level. Outside a considerable amount of thought has gone into providing a low maintenance landscaped garden. There is also a wide gravelled driveway that provides off road parking for several vehicles and leads to a large double garage.
