Believed to be built in 1865, the cottage was knocked down and re-built as two separate cottages in the 1920’s and combined into a single dwelling in the 1950’s. Between 2005 and 2011 the cottage was re-wired & plastered and a new central heating system was installed. The current owner extended the property in 2014 to provide separate living accommodation with 3 bedrooms. The property also comes with a large field which has the potential for a single dwelling to be added (subject to planning.)
Bagginswood Cottage sits in the centre of a triangle of beautifully quaint, riverside towns including Bridgnorth, Ludlow, Bewdley and is just 4 miles from the historic market town of Cleobury Mortimer which has a wealth of charm and character. Here you will find a range of local and independent shops including a post office, bakeries, butchers, grocers, cafes and pubs. A recently built doctors surgery with pharmacy, dental surgery and opticians are a further benefit to the community.
Kidderminster is approx. 12 miles from the property and offers more extensive shopping and entertainment facilities. The M5 is approximately 28 miles away and the train station in Kidderminster offers direct routes to Birmingham and London.
Heathfield Knoll is an Independent School and just 9 miles away. Local primary state schools include Bayton C of E Primary School which has been rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted. Kinlet & Farlow C of E Primary Schools and Cleobury Mortimer Primary among several others have been rated as ‘Good.'
Upon entering the cottage you are welcomed into a light and spacious Hallway which hosts an original fireplace and recently restored terracotta tiled flooring. To your left is a bright family Sitting Room with a cosy wood burning stove recessed into a red brick fireplace topped with an oak beamed mantel. The views from both front windows look out onto a beautiful front garden whilst the two rear windows frame the calming woodlands and fields behind.
The Kitchen-Diner is the beating heart of this delightful family home; laden with solid granite worktops, a continuation of the terracotta tiled flooring, a Rangemaster, integral NEFF dishwasher and larder fridge. Here you’re greeted by triple aspects which include patio doors leading out onto the front garden, whilst the rear window overlooks the same peaceful woodland and field views as the Sitting Room. Off the Kitchen is a carpeted ‘Snug/reading room’ affording the most wonderfully calming views over pastures where you’ll often find grazing livestock. To the rear of the Kitchen is a large Utility Room with solid wood units, plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer, plenty of storage cupboards and more of those fantastic views. The Utility leads into a convenient downstairs cloakroom and spacious double shower. The back door leads out onto the back garden and patio area.
On the first floor, you’re again met by that familiar bright and spacious feeling along with 2 double and 2 single Bedrooms and the family Bathroom. The Master Bedroom includes an Ensuite Bathroom with His and Hers sinks, built-in wardrobes, wooden flooring and an original fireplace. All Bedrooms offer views of the front garden.
Attached to the Cottage is the recently added single story extension which benefits from its’ own entrance via French doors and leads into a large Lounge Diner. There are 3 double Bedrooms. The master Bedroom has patio doors advantageously leading onto the back garden which offers those views of rolling pasture and woodlands bustling with resident wildlife. There is a modern family Bathroom and a Utility Room. The extension is finished to a high specification with air source heat pump heating system, spot lights and is neutrally decorated throughout. The utility has not yet been completed with unit doors.
There is a true feeling of escapism at Bagginswood cottage and the views are what makes this place somewhere really special. Nestled in 360 degrees of grounds with a large field, small pond, stone chippings and wooden decking area.
To the front of the house is a beautifully kept large carriage driveway and garden with well-established trees plants and shrubs such as cherry blossom, magnolia, willow, apple and plum trees. There are 2 large sheds and a large field which has a woodshed and water supply.
