A charming detached cottage, surrounded by its 2 acres of land, including a pony paddock with stable, private gardens and a detached double garage with potential to convert.

Whilst being a cottage, this wonderful property is so light and bright and is home to many character features throughout such as exposed beams, oak timber doors and flooring, and a gorgeous inglenook fireplace.

The front door of the property opens into the entrance hall, which provides storage via the under stairs cupboards. The accommodation is well balanced with a central hallway having the lounge to the right and the kitchen to the left. You are welcomed into the bright and airy dining kitchen, with tiled flooring and a warming Aga as the focal point. French doors open out onto the rear garden.

Off the kitchen is the large utility room providing ample storage space within the matching range of wall and base units, along with further plumbing. This room, with further external door to the side of the property, is a useful space for muddy boots after coming in from a walk. An essential cloakroom can be found beyond the utility room with a low flush WC and a wash hand basin.

To the other end of the property, is the spacious, dual aspect lounge with the wonderful inglenook fireplace. This room then leads into the stunning oak framed conservatory which provides a lovely space to relax and unwind whilst enjoying the outlook over the garden.

The useful study completes the accommodation on this floor.

To the first floor are three double bedrooms, the master of which benefitting from a walk-through dressing room with two fitted wardrobes, that could provide further bedroom space if required. The second bedroom also comes complete with fitted wardrobes. The contemporary bathroom comprises a white suite of tiled enclosed bath with shower above, low flush WC and pedestal wash hand basin.

Externally, the property offers 2 acres of ground in total. The paddock, complete with wooden built stable, is ideal for those who have a horse or pony, or those looking to keep alternative livestock.

The beautiful private garden wraps around the property and is mainly laid to lawn with several mature trees bordered by beautiful wild flowers and is accompanied by a small stream that runs along the bottom of the garden, known as a winterbourne, due to its presence only in the winter months. The small orchard area of the garden contains several fruit trees including apple, plum and pear trees, and is also home to gooseberry, raspberry and blackberry bushes. The garden is made complete by the small pond, greenhouse, garden shed and log store.

From the lane, the sweeping drive leads to a parking area providing space for several vehicles and also leads to the detached garage.
The detached double garage, once with planning permission to convert (which has now lapsed), provides ample storage over two floors and would make an ideal annexe or holiday let, subject to obtaining planning permission.

The house also had planning permission for a double storey extension, which has also since lapsed, to provide an additional bedroom and en-suite.

Location:
The properties location is what really sets it aside from other rural areas. The gate of the property opens onto a well-known bridle path called The Jack Mytton Way, and within a hundred yards this then has uninterrupted access onto Cramer Gutter Nature Reserve that is 4 hectares of common land that is managed by Shropshire Wildlife Trust and is teaming with wild life and flowers. The bridle path then takes you beyond the nature reserve to Catherton Common, which is 213 hectares of common land with beautiful views and a maze of bridle paths and footpaths to explore.

Bordered by the beautiful Shropshire countryside, it offers a wealth of local amenities and leisure facilities, being within easy reach of several historic and medieval, market and riverside, towns including Cleobury Mortimer, Bewdley, Ludlow and Bridgnorth. The larger town of Kidderminster is also within approx. half an hour of the property and provides larger department stores and supermarkets. Nearer to home, in Oreton itself, is the public house The New Inn and the local village hall is actively used providing activities for the community.
