The city of Worcester is about twelve miles.

Transport communications are excellent. There is a mainline railway station in Great Malvern and Junction 1 of the M50 motorway near Upton is just seven miles. Educational needs are well catered for.

Elliots Cottage is situated in the heart of beautiful countryside on Castlemorton Common. It is surrounded by open fields and is set against the backdrop of the Malvern Hills which are only a few minutes drive away.


Originally dating back to the 1800's Elliots Cottage was at one time a pair of semi detached farmworkers cottages. It is now a traditional two storey detached house constructed of brick with external rendered elevations under a pitched tiled roof. The property does require updating and refurbishment but it offers enormous scope for extension and for transformation into a very fine contemporary home. The accommodation currently includes a porch, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, a hall, lounge, utility room with WC, four bedrooms and a bathroom. One of the bedrooms has its own dressing room which could potentially be converted to an en-suite facility. The house has oil fired central heating (the boiler is three years old) and double glazed windows.

The large garden provides a lovely setting. Within the curtilage there are a number of small outbuildings mainly of timber construction and a driveway that can accommodate several vehicles. There is clearly potential to construct garaging if required.

Elliots Cottage provides the perfect opportunity for buyers to renovate, refurbish and stamp their own mark on a house that enjoys a wonderful location.
