Situated in a beautiful setting within the Teme Valley, on the outskirts of the rural hamlet of Burford is this truly one off home. The market town of Tenbury Wells is just 2.5 miles away and offers all the everyday amenities that you could require including independent shops, doctors surgery, dentist, primary and secondary schools.

From the minute you approach this beautiful home you are immediately impressed by the incredible opportunity on offer here. This country cottage is beautifully appointed throughout and offers versatile accommodation which has been updated by the current owners. The original cottage is believed to date back to the 17th Century, with additions that have taken place since then, with the most recent extension added approximately 14 years ago.

A door from here leads into the downstairs cloakroom with flagstone floor, WC and wash hand basin.

Going back through the kitchen you enter the large hallway which formed part of the original cottage, this room is light from windows to two elevations, including a large window to the rear looking out over the patio with waterfall feature. This room oozes character from the feature beams, wooden flooring and Oak staircase rising to the first floor. A large cupboard from the stairs leads to a cloakroom/storgae area and on into the boiler room.

The two reception rooms offer versatility in terms of usage and could be reworked depending on a buyers needs. The well proportioned lounge has features including period beam, double French doors out onto the rear patio and inglenook red brick fireplace with wood burning stove in situ.

To the other side of the hallway is the lounge/dining room again which features an inglenook red brick fireplace featuring the original bread oven, there is also a woodburning stove in situ. Again this room has feature beams, and in the dining area a wooden Oak front door leading into a porch.

On the first floor there are three bedrooms, ensuite, family bathroom and mezzanine landing. The principal bedroom houses a super king size bed, the room is well proportioned with period beams and window looking out over the surrounding views, it also benefits from a walk in wardrobe and ensuite shower room with waterfall shower, WC and wash hand basin with underfloor heating. There is a touch controlled illuminated mirror, fitted cupboards with internal and external shaver sockets and heated towel rail.

The further two bedrooms currently have king sized beds in them and enjoy different aspects looking out over the surrounding land and countryside beyond. Bedroom three has a built in wardrobe. The family bathroom comprises of roll top bath, separate shower, WC and wash hand basin. Again this room benefits from underfloor heating, touch controlled illuminated mirror, electric shaver socket and heated towel rail.

In addition to the three bedrooms, the mezzanine landing with Velux windows offers further space for either home office potential or a reading area. Again there are further storage cupboards.

Attention to detail has clearly been taken care of throughout with various lighting options in different rooms and power sockets with USB ports.

Outside, the property is approached across a private gated driveway with plenty of parking for a number of vehicles. There are also outside taps to both the front and rear of the property. Behind the house, is a large patio area offering a perfect space for entertaining. There is a walled terraced garden area which is predominantly laid to lawn. The land beyond this extends into a large area which could be separated into further paddock area if required. At the top is an area which is fenced and has recently been laid to grass with greenhouse and fruit cage.

To the right of the driveway is a fully fenced paddock area which is currently used for chickens. To the left is a more formal garden area which is interspersed with a number of fruit trees, mature shrubs and trees, leading down to a pond.

Detached from the main house is a double garage with light and power, with a staircase on the outside leading to a studio above. Again this offers versatility in usage and could be a home office or subject to the relevant permissions could be converted into further accommodation with holiday let potential or for multi-generational living.
