This delightful little cottage is tucked away in a private courtyard situated just off Westbourne Street within sight of the Severn Valley steam railway arches and just a few minutes walk from the riverside and town centre.

This is a perfect first time buyer's home or investment property - indeed the present owner has successfully undertaken holiday lets over the last few years to visitors from far and wide.

Dating from the mid 19th century, the property abuts the former rope works building from which the property takes its name. Although No.2 Ropeworks Cottage is not expressly named as a Listed Building, the agents are advised by the Conservation Officer for Wyre Forest District Council that historically the property once formed part of, and therefore is within the curtilage of, the adjoining Grade II listed building (No.1 Ropeworks Cottage) and should therefore be treated as 'listed' for all intents and purposes.

The property is presented to a good decorative standard within and benefits from a replacement gas fired central heating boiler installed in 2015 at which time the electrics were also upgraded and safety certified.

At the same time the cottage retains a number of attractive period features such as the excellent Minton tiled floor to the hallway and original sash windows to the front elevation. Other windows are upvc double glazed.

The living room has a real flame coal effect gas fire in decorative surround with archway access through to the kitchen which features an attractive range of wood veneer wall and base cabinets, black tiled floor and integral appliances to include electric oven, hood, ceramic hob, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer.

To the first floor there are two bedrooms, the master with bay window to front elevation and ample space for wardrobes etc.

The bathroom is well appointed with white suite to comprise low level w.c, pedestal wash hand basin, panelled bath, corner quadrant cubicle with mixer shower, LED wall mirror and full wall tiling.

To the front of the property is a neat brick paved patio garden with outside tap and gateway to a gravelled area providing two private parking spaces.

The courtyard is administered by the Rope Walk Residents Association of which the property forms part, with a service charge payable (currently £10 per calendar month) in respect of drainage and maintenance of communal areas.

Council Tax is payable to Wyre Forest District Council rated as Band 'B'.
