About this property

  • Rosemary Cottage is a charming, detached house, built in Cotswold stone under a pitched tiled roof. It has been suggested that it was once the rectory; it dates from 1879 with later additions. The property has been in the same family for two generations and though light and sunny with good ceiling heights would now benefit from modernisation and upgrading. It also has scope for extension (subject to the necessary consents) and offers great potential. Adjacent to the house is a self-contained apartment built over a detached double garage. This apartment, which has been let for a number of years, would be ideal for a relative or for use as an office or as income producing accommodation. Many years ago planning permission was obtained for the ground floor of this building to be converted into further residential space, though this has now expired. The property sits off the quiet village lane with a gravelled driveway leading to the two buildings, offering ample parking.

    The ground floor of the garage block has two up and over doors leading to the garage space with power and lights and an internal door leading into the large (21m2) centrally heated storeroom, which could also be used as a workroom or gym. A stone staircase on the outside of the building leads up to the self-contained first floor apartment which is sunny and light with some lovely views, but would also benefit from modernising. The gardens, which wrap right around the house, are of a good size (approx. two thirds of an acre) and are currently mainly laid to lawns with a paved west facing patio area outside the sitting room. The property is offered with no onward chain.

This is a very good looking house in a peaceful and pretty location on the lower slopes of beautiful Bredon Hill. There is also so much potential, especially with the annex, either to produce an income, or extend the main house, or both.
