Location & Description

The property enjoys a rural setting only a quarter of a mile from the highly popular South Worcestershire village of Welland where there is a local shop/stores, village hall, a highly regarded primary school, a church and even a thriving football club. It lies almost equidistant from the larger centres of Great Malvern and Upton upon Severn, both of which offer a comprehensive range of amenities. In Malvern there is a Waitrose supermarket, shops and banks, the renowned theatre and cinema complex and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium. Upton also has an excellent choice of shops, supermarkets and its famous riverside Marina. Transport communications are excellent. The village lies on the crossroads between the cities of Worcester, Cheltenham and Gloucester with close access to the M5 south of Upton which is no more than seven miles distant. Educational facilities are second to none with some of the best primary and secondary schools in both the state and private systems in the region and for those who enjoy walking, riding or energetic pursuits, Castlemorton Common is within walking distance and the Malvern Hills are less than four miles away.

The Cottage comprises a significant detached two storey house with generous accommodation that has in more recent times been the subject of extension, renovation and refurbishment. The result is a beautifully presented contemporary home fit for a growing family but equally suited to retirement buyers or purchasers without children as it is easy to maintain. The current accommodation includes a central reception hall, cloakroom with WC, a large living room (with inglenook style fireplace) a separate dining room, a particularly well equipped kitchen/breakfast room, a utility room, galleried landing and four bedrooms, one of which has its own en-suite shower room. There is also a separate family bathroom with both a slip bath and separate shower. Central heating is provided by way of an LPG gas system and windows are double glazed. One of the great strengths of The Cottage is to be found outside where a gated approach leads on to a block paviour driveway capable of accommodating several vehicles and leading to a large modern double garage which has the added bonus of additional roof storage. The garage could offer potential for conversion into a studio, office or gym. The mature garden is mainly laid to lawn with trees, shrubs, hedged boundaries and stone paving which provide areas to sit out and enjoy the summer sunshine. Behind the garage and accessed via a gated gravel driveway is a small orchard with fruit trees. From the garden there are fine views to the west of the full range of the Malvern Hills. Ground Floor
