There is more to this quaint-looking, part-timbered, traditional style cottage than meets the eye.
For the Grade II listed, 17th century property has been sympathetically extended and can now boast an impressive four bedrooms and three receptions, including a music room.
Located in the charmingly named Owls End Lane in Upton Snodsbury village, Worcester, Rose Cottage is as attractive on the inside as it is outside with its open fireplaces, vaulted ceilings and exposed beams. However, it does include modern luxuries such as underfloor heating in the conservatory and bathrooms.
As an extra bonus, there is more accommodation attached to the cottage in the form of an annexe.
Entrance to the cottage is via a pathway through the pretty garden.
In typical country style, access is via the kitchen, the warm heart of the home with a range of fitted units and wooden work tops , plus integral appliances, including a dishwasher, Bosch double oven, Bosch hob with extractor over and fridge.
Next to it is a reception which could be used as either a music room or formal dining room. This has a fireplace and exposed beams to the ceiling. There is also a door linking it to the annexe.
The largest reception room is the sitting room, which is bright and airy and has a more contemporary feel. The focal point is the inset open fireplace.
Bi-folding doors lead to the conservatory/ dining area, which shares this more modern style.
An inner hallway leads from the front reception room to a utility room with washing machine , freezer and tumble dryer and a quarry-tiled floor. There is also a useful downstairs shower room.
Above the lounge, there is a large master bedroom with skylight windows, fitted wardrobes and cupboards.
The nearby bathroom is fully tiled with a “P” shaped bath with shower over and skylight window.
Accessed from the stairs in the front reception room are three more bedrooms. Two are doubles, one with fireplace, vaulted ceiling and exposed beams, and the other with fitted wardrobes.
The other is a single with fitted wardrobes.
A tiled family bathroom has a bath with shower.
The recently created annexe, which also has its own separate entrance, includes a cosy yet bright living room with exposed beams and fireplace with quarry-tiled hearth and wooden mantel.
A door leads through to the kitchen which is fitted with modern matching base and wall units incorporating Bosch fitted oven with hob over, extractor fan, ASKO washing machine and fridge freezer.
There is a tiled shower room and a double bedroom with fitted wardrobes and storage.
A detached double garage has metal steps leading to a first-floor store room. This could be used as a home office or as a den for teens.
