It is believed that Gorsty Cottage dates back as far as the 17th century and extended, once in the 1960s and again in the early 2000s.

The property stands on the edge of pretty St.Michaelís village which is just outside the town of Tenbury Wells with a variety of individual shops and both recreational and educational facilities. The front door leads into the reception hall which has a quarry tiled floor.

The kitchen is well equipped with ample fitted units and a useful larder cupboard. As well as an integral oven there is a five plate gas hob and an integral fridge. From the kitchen there is direct access to the dining room a door then leads out onto the most attractive covered veranda which has far reaching views to the west.

The utility room with fitted cupboards and plumbing a space for a washing machine is located off the dining room, the utility room gives access to the ground floor bathroom with cast iron bath with mixer taps and hand shower to one end and an overhead power shower to the other, wc and washbasin. The main living room has exposed beams with a massive inglenook fireplace with the bread oven still in evidence and also a log storage area. It houses a wood burning stove. The sitting room which is off the entrance hall also has a woodburner and also an engineered oak floor.
Stairs lead to a large landing on the first floor with ample room for a desk and computer. A window looks out over the lovely eastern views to the front. The master bedroom is the latest addition. Built by Border Oak it is half timbered with a walk in wardrobe and an ensuite shower room with wc and wash hand basin with a marble top. Double doors lead out to a special feature which is the spacious balcony where there is plenty of room for a table and chairs. The balcony enjoys views to the west and Clee Hill to the north. There are two further double bedrooms, one having a wash hand basin.

The garden is mainly lawned with fully stocked flower beds containing a huge variety of mature shrubs, plants and ornamental trees. It provides interest and colour all year round. There is a patio area suitable for al fresco dining adjacent to the veranda. There is also a productive vegetable garden beyond the greenhouse with four raised beds.

On the south side side of the cottage there is a small orchard with pathways cut through the grass which is left to attract the local wildlife. There are apple and plum trees. Outbuildings include two timber sheds and a log store.

There is a driveway leading from the road to the side of the cottage and we understand from the present occupier that in the 1990s planning permission was granted for a new driveway to be installed at the other end of the garden, which has now lapsed.
