Originating from the turn of the last Century, this fascinating property served for many years as the village bakehouse and was divided into two sections: an Edwardian villa with a walled garden and the adjoining wing, housing the shop, grain store and bakery. Closed in the 1990's, and aquired by the current owners it was then remodelled and renovated to create the wonderful family home it is today.
The accommodation is very versatile with the bakery wing incorporated fully and currently utilised as an artists studio, a music room and a library which would serve equally as well as a large bedroom with space for the installation of an ensuite bathroom; the original house provides 3 reception rooms, and a lovely farmhouse style kitchen on the ground floor with four bedrooms served by a family bathroom and separate shower room upstairs. The property retains many character features including original tiling, exposed pine floorboards and open fireplaces with original grates; large sash wiindows and high ceilings, typical of this era also ensure good levels of natural light. As featured in the January 2016 edition of Period Homes, viewing is highly recommended.
The property is situated on a corner plot, opposite the village church, a short distance from the green. Local amenities include the popular Gardeners Arms, a Playgroup and First School in nearby Cropthorne. The major shopping and commercial centres of Evesham and Pershore are approximately 3 and 4 miles distant respectively. Worcester (13 miles) provides a much wider range of facilities and a mainline railway with a regular service to London Paddington is to be found in both Pershore and Evesham.
Gated side access to a drive with parking for several vehicles and access to the original stable outbuilding which provides a small single garage (cart house), store/workshop (stables) and first floor store room (hay loft) - still with original brick floor and feeding troughs. The gardens are a delight with many areas of interest interlinked by winding paths and well planted with a wide range of specimen shrubs and mature specimen trees. A wide raised, paved terrace adjoins the rear of the house with raised borders; ornamental pond and Box topiary together with Magnolia and mature Bramley.
Mains drains, electricity and water connected. Oil fired central heating. The property is rated band F for Council Tax.
