When Springmeadow Cottage in Appletree Lane, Inkberrow, was originally built it would have been a cosy but compact space.
For the Grade II listed building actually started life as two separate workers' cottages, which were only united to make a single, more spacious dwelling in the 1990s.
Now it is a two-bedroom home with a reception room that is a combination of living/dining rooms.
The charming thatched cottage sits on the edge of the Worcestershire village.
The conversion from two homes to one has been sympathetically done and the wealth of character features, including the profusion of beams and sloping ceilings, have really been made the most of.
Outside it is pretty combination of black timber and white brick.
It has two separate entrances, one to the front and one to the side.
The main hallway has a door into the sitting room and an opening into the kitchen.
The latter space has wall mounted units, a Belfast sink and gas Rangemaster cooker. An adjacent utility makes a perfect laundry room with plenty of additional storage.
The open plan sitting room/dining room has a wooden staircase to the first floor in the middle and an inglenook fireplace with Villager multi-fuel stove to one end.
The side entrance to the cottage leads into a small hall with a door to the sitting room and another door into a downstairs cloakroom with toilet and shower.
On the first floor there are two double bedrooms, both with oak flooring and exposed beams.
The master bedroom also has an en suite with roll top bath, toilet and basin.
Spring Meadow Cottage is approached through a gated entrance on to a paved driveway with parking for one to two cars. A practical and manageable garden is mainly laid to lawn with a small herbaceous border.
Inkberrow village has a very solid community with a parish church – St Peter’s – two pubs, a village green, general stores, post office, village hall, a primary school and sports facilities.
The surrounding countryside offers opportunities for walking and other outdoor pursuits. Nearby towns include Pershore, Droitwich and Alcester.
The village also lies within easy travelling distance of the M5.
