Description

This handsome south facing family home was originally built in 1826 and is believed to have been the former Station Master's house for Defford station. It has been sympathetically extended in the last 12 years and completely re roofed. There are period features to include sash windows throughout and original fitted cupboards.

An imposing pillared portico with a panelled entrance door with original glass inserts leads through to the hallway with the original chequered monochrome tiled floor, stairs to the first floor and a door to the cellar head. The sitting room has a sash window to the front and an open fireplace with decorative tiled slips. Also to the front elevation is the family room/lounge which has a fireplace recess and fitted cupboards to each side with display shelving above. Extending across the rear of the property is the open plan breakfast/dining kitchen which is a fabulous versatile family space with a wooden floor. The dining area has double doors opening out onto the rear garden and patio area ideal for alfresco dining and a fireplace with a wooden mantel and a wood burning stove. The kitchen area has an extensive range of fitted units with granite worktops and corner carousel base units, a Belfast sink and mixer tap, a fitted Aga range cooker and integral Bosch dishwasher. The adjacent utility room has a slate tiled floor, recesses for the usual appliances, a cupboard with the Megaflow mains-pressure hot water system and a door to a cloakroom which also has a slate floor and a fitted cupboard with shelving.

On the first floor the spacious landing leads to the master bedroom which has exposed floor boards, an original feature fireplace with original fitted cupboards to each side, a sash window to the front with far reaching views across to Bredon Hill and a luxury en suite shower room with underfloor heating.
