Originally dating from 1859 and located on the outskirts of the desirable village of Far Forest, this characterful detached cottage lies within easy reach of the Wyre Forest & it's Visitor Centre with an abundance of woodland walks close to home. The picturesque Georgian riverside town of Bewdley is 4 miles away, being little more than 5 minutes by car with a good range of local restaurants, pubs and recreational pursuits including the rowing club, golf clubs, fishing and the renowned Severn Valley steam railway line. The village has a strong sense of community, with an excellent convenience store & post office, primary school, village hall and highly regarded carvery restaurant all close at hand.

The cottage has been extended to provide generous ground floor living space with all principal rooms of good proportions, plus three bedrooms and bathroom to the first floor, the third bedroom having an adjoining dressing room or occasional fourth bedroom if needed.

The present owners have carried out a number of significant improvements in the last nine years including new windows and external upvc doors to the main house and annexe, a new roof to the main house, replacement Worcester Bosch central heating boiler, new oil tank, utility room and guest cloakroom extension and other internal enhancements.

The living room has a splendid full height brick feature fireplace with quarry tiled hearth, oak mantel and log burner, with French windows overlooking and opening out to the garden, plus a further glazed door to the rear patio.

The kitchen features a high pitched ceiling with exposed oak timbers and stonework, two Velux skylights, quarry tiled floor, solid wood bespoke cabinets, granite work surface with Neff induction hob & hood plus integral electric oven/ grill, microwave and space for a slimline dishwasher.

There is also a sizeable dining room with understairs cupboard, double doors returning to entrance lobby and a further door to an inner lobby where stairs lead up to the first floor and two other doors give way to the guest cloakroom and utility room, both having quarry tiled floors and the usual fittings.

The guest cloakroom also accommodates the floorstanding central heating boiler, whilst the utility room has a work surface to two sides including sink unit and cupboards below, plus space for laundry appliances.

In addition to the three first floor bedrooms, the bathroom has a tiled floor and is fitted with a clawfoot bath, pedestal hand basin, low level wc, corner cubicle with Mira electric shower unit plus heated towel rail and inbuilt cupboard.

A particular benefit of the property is the self-contained annexe flat which stands about 20 yards from the cottage and has a basement garage and workshop below with own driveway parking space. The flat was fitted with new upvc windows and doors in 2016 and has been newly refurbished recently, remaining unused prior to sale.

The layout provides a central living room with space off suitable for kitchenette fittings if required, in addition to which there is a double bedroom and separate shower room having low level wc, pedestal hand basin, heated towel rail and corner cubicle with brand new and unused Triton electric shower. The annexe would make an ideal home office with visitor parking space, and with this in mind the property is served by high speed fibre broadband.

Alternatively, with the addition of cooking facilities, the annexe could make a perfect self-contained flat suitable for a dependent relative.

The flat sits directly above a larger than average single garage plus adjoining workshop, providing scope for potential future adaptations of the space if so required.

Between the house and the flat is a neatly laid out level garden with formal paths, beds and borders as well as an ornamental pond and timber decked patio area including arbour. A vegetable growing area bordered by Espalier apple trees, soft fruit and small herb garden. A timber summer house and aluminium framed greenhouse may also be available by separate negotiation.

Windlestone is a property which must be seen in person to fully appreciate all that is on offer.

Council tax is payable to the Wyre Forest District Council, rated as band E.
