Location & Description

Stamps Cottage is situated on the outskirts of the very popular village of Colwall. Colwall is situated at the foot of the western slopes of the Malvern Hills and offers a good range of local facilities including shops, post office and pharmacy, schools, a doctor's surgery, churches, hotel and public houses. There is a regular bus service to Ledbury (approximately 4 miles) and Great Malvern (approximately 2 miles). Colwall also has the benefit of a mainline railway with direct services to Birmingham New Street, Oxford and London Paddington.

Believed to date back to 1649, Stamps Cottage was originally two farm cottages, which were converted, renovated and extended by a local builder to create one residential dwelling. The property occupies a secluded position and enjoys wonderful views across adjacent open farmland and orchards. Stamps Cottage is bursting with character and has many fine period features including extensive exposed timbers, wooden internal doors and two striking inglenook fireplaces. This is the first time that Stamps Cottage has been available on the open market and offers a unique opportunity to purchase a truly stunning home. The accommodation is generously proportioned and is arranged on the ground floor with an oak framed storm porch, entrance hall, sitting room with wood burning stove, separate dining room with a striking bay window, study, breakfast kitchen, useful utility room and a cloakroom. On the first floor, a spacious landing leads to the master bedroom with a comprehensive range of fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room, three further bedrooms (one en suite) and a family bathroom. In addition to the main house, there is a self contained annexe, which was constructed in 2008. The annexe is beautifully presented and comprises an open plan living/dining/kitchen, double bedroom and shower room. The annexe offers superb guest accommodation and would be ideal for those with a dependant relative. Stamps Cottage is approached via a right of access across a privately owned track. A driveway leads to an extensive area of parking and a detached DOUBLE GARAGE.
