Tranquil views of The Malvern Hills can be enjoyed from Oak Cottage in Pershore Road, Stoulton, and a superb conservatory provides the perfect vantage point from which to soak them up.
Dating back to 1750, the cottage has been sympathetically extended and is beautifully presented.
There are fine character features inside including fireplaces and log burners.
At the front there is an entrance porch leading into a cosy snug with wood burning fire.
A door leads from here into the impressive sitting room which is 25 feet long and has views to three sides. It has an inglenook fireplace with inset wood burner. Sliding doors lead out to the garden and look towards the Malverns.
To the other side of the snug is a dining room which has a brick fireplace with solid oak mantle and inset wood burner.
This leads into a charming kitchen which is fitted with pine units and integrated appliances that include a Rangemaster oven with hood over, washer, dryer, dishwasher, fridge, freezer and microwave. There are exposed beams to the ceiling and double doors which open into the 24ft conservatory that looks out across the Worcestershire countryside.
On the first floor are four bedrooms. The master has a dressing room with a well appointed en suite complete with walk-in shower and a corner bath.
The three other rooms are all doubles and there is a character bathroom with corner Jacuzzi bath, walk-in shower cubicle and beams in the ceiling.
In front of the cottage a gravelled area provides plenty of space for vehicles. There is also a single garage.
Easy to maintain gardens are laid mainly to decking and there are patio areas with areas suitable for dining and entertaining.
Other features include a hot tub, working well, vegetable patch and a summer house which is currently used as a gym.
The pretty village of Stoulton lies between the Georgian town of Pershore and the city of Worcester. The village and hamlets were formally part of the Eastnor Castle Estate and include local historic buildings such as the Norman parish church, 17th century Manor Farm and Old Vicarage.
Countryside attractions include Windmill Hill and Deerfold Wood which are crisscrossed by public footpaths.
The larger centres of Pershore and Worcester have more retail, leisure and educational facilities.
There is also quick and easy access to the M5 and the wider motorway network.
