About this property

  • Norbury Cottage is a charming property which is believed to date from the early 19th Century, with Flemish bond brickwork beneath a slate roof.

    It has belonged to the same family for many years and has been a wonderful home, offering land and stabling for horses and a special village location offering access to all that the Bunbury village community has to offer.

    The house and barn are in unmodernised condition, requiring full renovation. However, it also offers a wonderful and extremely rare opportunity to create a property to one's individual specification.

    The house has accommodation arranged over two floors with the panelled front door leading into a staircase hall with reception rooms to either side, both with fireplaces.

    At the rear is a laundry room, with a wc off, which links to the kitchen with a range of storage units, an oven, hob and extractor. There is a larder and a conservatory which currently provides storage. The Worcester condensing oil-fired boiler is located in the kitchen.

    On the first floor are three bedrooms, one with an en suite dressing room, and a family bathroom.

    The barn is served via the same access from the lane and houses three stables with a loft above. At the rear is a single storey corrugated lean-to.

    The house is set in attractive gardens with mature trees and various shrubs and plants. At the bottom of the garden is a single-storey building, currently vacant but has previously been used as a hairdressers.

    There are far-reaching views to the rear over the land and beyond. The land is arranged in paddocks which for many years have been used for horses.

    Development clause

    The property will be sold subject to a negotiable development clawback clause affecting all the land. Further details can be provided by the agents.

Opportunities such as this one are increasingly rare, especially in such a prime location. I love the potential Norbury Cottage offers - there is great scope to enhance the existing accommodation, and the acreage is a huge bonus.
