Originally built as accommodation for workers at the nearby salt works in the late 1800s, this is the last-but-one house in a row of eleven. The land surrounding the houses is circa 6 acres, most of which is grass (mown yearly for hay) and was bought by the then owners of the houses in 1999 and is now officially owned by a company set up by them. Every property owner is a member of the company until they sell their property. This means that the outstanding view and amenity is protected and several families’ children have enjoyed the safe outdoors play space thus provided.
The property benefits from a garage, front and rear garden and an allotment of about 140 square yards.
The location is secluded and peaceful and of great natural beauty and would be ideal for those with a passion for gardening, wildlife, angling, boating, cycling, walking, star gazing or history. There are two local nature reserves within easy walking distance and the Worcester-Birmingham canal runs close by. A network of lanes and public footpaths radiates out in all directions from the house.
For anyone who values these attributes, it is ideal, reflected in the fact that apart from one house that has sold a few years back, every other occupier has been here for at least 10 years and two families have been here over 30.
The current owner has lived here since since1998 and has thoroughly enjoyed the location and lifestyle.
The cottage is in close proximity to the popular village of Stoke Prior allowing ease of access to local pubs, shops and a post office. Also situated nearby is the village of Wychbold offering further amenities as well as strong road links to junction five on M5.
Just 10 minutes by road to Droitwich and Bromsgrove and 40 minutes to Birmingham, as well as strong rail links making this an ideal commuter’s property.
High qualities of state and private schooling can be found in Droitwich and surrounding areas, such as Bromsgrove and Worcester.
