Welcome to Laburnum Cottage, which is a wonderful example of an attached three-double bedroom, Grade II listed thatched cottage, offering private gardens of circa 1/3 acre, full of charm and character, offered for sale with no onward chain and located within a highly desirable village that sites on the Gloucestershire/Worcestershire borders.
The property is in the village of Bredons Norton, which sits neatly between the villages of Bredon and Eckington. The larger village of the two, Bredon, is a village that provides a home to people of all ages. The appeal of the village is it`s wealth of local amenities within walking distance including a village infant/primary school (OFSTED ôoutstanding` rating), pre-school, shop and post office, doctors surgery, village hall, church and two public houses. For those interested in activity and other pursuits there are several local clubs and societies as well as sports clubs offering bowls, football, rugby, cricket and tennis, playing fields, shooting clubs, sailing, the river and the local marina.
Returning to the property, the home is tucked away along a lane which gives access to a handful of properties and due to the location of the home, privacy can be assured. The gardens are mature and full of colour and for those whose passion is gardening, then this garden will be a delight to work with.
Stepping inside, the home is everything one would expect of a cottage from this era, full of charm and character, to include beams, stone floors, and inglenooks. Within the property are three reception rooms. The first is the living room which enjoys French doors leading to the rear courtyard at one end and a glazed door leading to the formal gardens at the front of the home. Add in the first inglenook the home enjoys and a host of beams to the ceiling, this really is a delightful room.
Furthermore, a staircase leads to the bedroom above which one would describe as the master bedroom. Benefiting from fitted wardrobes and a modern, three-piece bathroom, the room also enjoys a wonderful outlook over the garden.
Returning to the ground floor, the second reception room is the dining room and like the living room, is full of period features, including the last remaining inglenook. From the dining room, a hallway leads to the front door and to the third and final reception room, which we have described as a family room, but could equally be a home office/study.
Back in the dining room, a further door leads to the garden room which in turn gives access to the kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen is very in keeping with the cottage and there is space for a sizeable table and chairs. From the kitchen, a door leads to the separate utility room and in turn to the cloakroom.
Back in the dining room, the second set of stairs the home benefits from leads to the two remaining double bedrooms and family shower room.
Externally, there is plenty of space to park on the gravelled driveway and we would say that at present, four cars can comfortably park, yet with the space on offer, more parking could be created in need be. Just off the driveway is the detached double garage that benefits from light and power.
The gardens encompass the home and are full of colour and maturity. With a large amount of lawns, there is always a spot to enjoy the sunshine as it circles around the property.
In summary, very rarely do homes of this nature come onto the market in the village and it is due to this that we interest is expected to be high so to avoid disappointment, please contact the office to arrange your viewing.
