Description

Merron Cottage is a charming detached cottage that dates back some 400 years in parts and has been sympathetically extended providing attractive accommodation which has a wonderful blend of both original and more contemporary features.

The entrance hall has a useful cloaks cupboard and a glazed paned door leads through to the main hallway which has a wooden floor, the staircase to the first floor with excellent fitted storage under and a separate cloakroom. The family room with a dual aspect is currently used as a playroom and has a glazed paned door through to the sitting room which is the oldest part of the house. This is a fabulous room with a beamed ceiling and has the original inglenook fireplace with a woodburning stove anda French door which opens out onto the south facing rear garden. A feature open timber frame partition naturally divides the sitting room area from the dining area although the open feel of the room creates a very versatile living space. The breakfast kitchen is stylish with a newly fitted bespoke range of units by Worcestershire based Mark Ellis Interiors having a Belfast sink, quartz worktops and a fitted Smeg induction hob with a Klarstein extractor over, a Neff double oven , and integrated Neff fridge freezer and dishwasher. The room has a wooden floor, French doors to the garden and the pointed archway floor to ceiling windows which extend round to the breakfast area flood the whole room with natural light. The adjacent utility room has matching units with a ceramic sink, wooden worktops and recesses for the usual appliances together with a panelled and glazed door to the side of the property.

On the first floor the bright and sunny landing gives access to the master bedroom suite and the family bathroom and other three bedrooms. The master bedroom overlooks the rear garden and has fitted wardrobes, useful storage cupboards into the eaves, two velux windows and a stunning feature oriel window. The ensuite bathroom also has a velux window and a white bathroom suite together with a corner shower cubicle. There is a lovely light guest bedroom which is dual aspect and two further bedrooms both with painted beams and windows to the front. The smaller of these two bedrooms also has a mezzanine play/storage area. The family bathroom has been recently refurbished and has an attractive decorative tiled floor, a bath with a shower over and a vanity unit with a stylish square wash hand basin.

Gardens and grounds

The property sits back from the lane behind hedge screening and there is a gravelled parking area providing ample space for at least four cars. Gated side accesses either side of the cottage lead to the beautiful south facing rear garden which is very private and has a lovely terrace ideal for alfresco dining and a further patio area for sitting outside. There is a lawned area and pretty, well stocked flower borders. The garden shed and oil tank are well screened from the rest of the garden and there is a barked area with a mature apple tree. This area which is separated from the lawn by a box hedge is currently used as a children's play area but could easily be used as a vegetable garden with raised beds.
