Summary: A rare opportunity to purchase a detached Victorian cottage set in an extraordinary plot of approximately 3.8 acres featuring woodland, a delightful small lake, heated swimming pool and uninterrupted panoramic views across Worcestershire to the Malvern Hills. Completely surrounded by greenbelt land, the property is situated in a highly desirable rural location, yet under 2 miles from both the villages of Alvechurch and Barnt Green.

Description: The accommodation comprises: Entrance porch, triple aspect 'L'-shaped sitting room with multi-fuel burner and french doors onto the patio, dining room with feature oil fired stove, conservatory and a delightful country kitchen with breakfast dining space and integrated fridge, dishwasher, Samsung oven and electric hob. A useful utility room located off the dining room features access to the garden and an adjacent guest cloakroom.

The first floor offers a magnificent master bedroom suite complete with fitted wardrobes, en suite bathroom and balcony with stunning views across the paddock and lake. There are three further bedrooms (all with glorious open countryside views) and family shower room.

Outside: The charming mature gardens benefit from a BBQ area, 24' x 12' heated swimming pool and gate leading to a generous vegetable garden with a range of fruit trees and wood store. The adjacent paddock (of approximately 3.45 acres) boasts a beautiful small lake and copse with around 50 mature oak trees.

The property itself is approached over a Cotswold stone chipping drive and forecourt which continues alongside of the property and to the rear, providing hard standing for several vehicles. A gate from the driveway provides access to the paddock and large storage shed.

Location: The property is located just 1.6 miles from the highly regarded village of Alvechurch which boasts an extensive selection of locally based amenities including a variety of shops and restaurants, the parish church of St Laurence, Alvechurch Marina, Crown Meadow First School, Alvechurch C of E Middle School and excellent cross city rail service (with free parking) to Birmingham, Lichfield and Redditch. 1.6 miles North of the property lies the renowned village of Barnt Green offering further shopping facilities, cafes, two popular gastropubs, two churches, 'Outstanding' Ofsted rated St Andrews First School and train station to Birmingham, Worcester, Redditch and Lichfield.

There is easy access to M5/M42 motorway links, Birmingham Airport and Birmingham City Centre is approximately 12.5 miles away. Further local schooling includes Blackwell Infants School (with 'Outstanding' Ofsted Status), Lickey Hills Primary School, North and South Bromsgrove High as well as Bromsgrove Independent School, a co-educational private school with a national profile.

The surrounding rolling North Worcestershire countryside provides an idyllic setting for those wishing to pursue a range of rural based leisure activities including cycling, walking or 'hacking out'. The distinguished Blackwell Golf Club is just a short 5 minute drive away.
