This quirky getaway in the hamlet of Birtsmorton, near Malvern in Worcestershire, has definitely gone off the rails.
Tracks End is made from two old railway carriages, cleverly combined with more conventional cottage elements, but still retaining their original shape, doors and multiple windows.
The result is a charming rural retreat that offers up to three bedrooms.
It is approached via a five-bar gate opening on to a gravel driveway with lawns and sleepers and parking for several cars.
There is an entrance that leads to an inner hall. The dining kitchen has an original range (not working) with mantle shelf over and is fully fitted. The work surfaces are tiled and there is a matching range of handcrafted wooden wall and base units with cooker head, drawers, cupboards and glass display shelf. It has an integral fridge and dishwasher and stripped wooden floor.
Just off is a door to a study with carriage window and built-in desk with drawers and shelving.
A sunroom in the rear carriage could be used as a third bedroom. It has a door opening into the garden and built-in cupboards.
A door leads through to a utility room in an extended part of the building with quarry tiled floor and cupboards, worktops, shelving, sink and stable door to the side.
Between the original carriages is the dining area with original carriage doors. It is open to a spacious lounge area, which has an exposed brick fireplace with high ceiling and skylight window. There is a log burner inset on quarry tiles, windows and French doors to the decked patio area.
Bedroom one is in the rear carriage and has fitted wardrobes, as well as windows and doors opening on to the garden with views of the countryside beyond.
Bedroom two is in the front carriage with carriage windows and built-in wardrobes. It is opposite the bathroom, which is also in the front carriage and fitted with a toilet, basin and shower cubicle.
The back garden is mostly laid to lawn with a walkway around the rear carriage leading to a decked area.
Tracks End is near to the village of Castlemorton, which has a church, village hall and primary school.
There is walking and riding on nearby common land and in the Malvern Hills. The M5 and M50 are easily accessible as are the mainline stations in Malvern with links to Worcester, Birmingham and London.
