Property Ref: 4857
Tucked away in a secluded location in the much sought-after village of Mells is this charming cottage, believed to date back to 1875. This delightful property is full of period charm and has a stunning landscaped garden in 1/3 of an acre and borders the picturesque Mells Brook.
The front entrance opens into a hallway and leads through to a study, which could also be used as a guest bedroom. On the other side of the hall is a spacious dining/living room with engineered wood floors and a fireplace with a wood-burning stove. Off the living room is a fitted bathroom with shower and underfloor heating...
Beyond the living room is a newly refurbished shaker-style kitchen with underfloor heating and views onto the garden and brook, with an adjoining boot room that also has underfloor heating and a new Worcester combi-boiler. At the back of the property, there is a spacious sitting and dining room with a balcony overlooking the extensive gardens.
Upstairs is beautifully presented with two double bedrooms, a single bedroom and a family bathroom with roll-top bath, separate shower and mosaic style tiled flooring. The vendors have lapsed planning permission 2014/1904/HSE that can be resubmitted and which details two extensions to create a master bedroom with ensuite and also a larger family kitchen.
Accessed via a gated driveway with provision for electric gates, Brook Cottage enjoys great privacy and seclusion with a tranquil setting bordering Mells Brook. There is driveway parking for several cars, a double garage with utility facilities as well as a large cellar underneath the house. There is also a separate carport and log store, an outside toilet, a summer house and a greenhouse, both with the electrical provision and extensive external lighting.
The gardens extend to 1/3 of an acre and are opened annually to the public. They have been cleverly and imaginatively landscaped with newly paved entertaining areas, mature trees and shrubs, lawns, wonderful terraced beds, a pergola and ornamental fishpond (with metal safety grid), waterfall and rockery. The extensive garden boundary is made secure and private with a combination of walls, solid wooden fencing and hedges.
