Henwick Cottage has been extended and sympathetically updated throughout, the current vendors have said they will be sad to leave behind wonderful family memories made and the stunning views that they have thoroughly enjoyed over the past 20 years.
As you enter the property via the original front door, you’ll be greeted by an abundance of character and charm, from original beams and doors that lead to the Dining Room, Kitchen and Cellar.
The entrance Hallway can serve as an additional reception room and is currently being used as a music room and office. There is an original fireplace where the current owners have carefully & creatively made a feature of some old smoking pipes that were found while the property was being renovated.
The Kitchen offers spectacular views onto the River Severn and Worcester Racecourse, the current vendors extended the property by adding an Orangery which ensured they could take full advantage of the view all year around. The Kitchen is light and spacious with engineered Oak Flooring with a secret pantry and original steps that the owners left in as a feature when renovating the property as they believe may have been the original access to the property next door.
There is also a downstairs cloakroom with a view!
The cosy yet light Sitting Room can be accessed off the Kitchen and again offers spectacular riverside views, a feature Fireplace and French doors onto the patio. This leads to the formal and spacious Dining Room which is dual aspect and has another beautiful fireplace. With original floor boards and access back onto the Hallway.
The Hallway takes you up to the three double Bedrooms, where you’ll discover more original fireplaces and original features. The Master Bedroom has the same specular views, a window seat, built in wardrobes and an En-Suite. The En-Suite has a quirky original feature window that looks into the family Bathroom both of which offer the views. The master Bathroom has an elegant roll top bath, original Elm Floorboards and original brickwork which has been cleverly exposed.
The original elm staircase off the Hallway leads into the Cellar. The current owners have separated this space into several areas, a Utility, Wine/Beer Cellar and Garden Room. A versatile Room with potential.
The Garden is staged over 3 levels, the patio area can be accessed via the back door off the Orangery or from the French doors off the Sitting Room. Below this the decking area can be accessed via the Garden Room. Both perfect areas for taking in the breath-taking views while enjoying the sunshine and a glass of wine or a cream tea. The final layer of the Garden is substantial and offers a wealth of established shrubs, flower beds and beautiful trees, including a Willow Tree, Apple Tree and Prayer Tree. The latter of which we are told is quite rare and when in bloom shows a stunning iridescent pink/purple flowers. A private gate leads into the footpath taking you onto the Riverside and the private landing stage for three small boats or a barge with mooring & fishing rights. From the footpath Worcester City Centre is just a 20 min Riverside walk away.
You can access the Single Garage via the main road which has parking for one car and some storage. Behind this sits a log store, both can be accessed via the patio.
Henwick Cottage offers the best of both worlds: an opportunity to live close to the City Centre but with the Countryside on your doorstep.
