A charming detached Grade II listed home set in large gardens in a popular village.
Oakhouse offers an opportunity to purchase a charming and real 'olde worlde' detached black and white house, with red brick and half timbered elevations under a pitched tiled roof. The property, which is listed Grade II has accommodation over three floors and is believed to date from around 1650 with later additions. The property retains charming period features such as the large working fireplaces in the snug and sitting rooms, a wealth of exposed beams and timber floors. The current owners extended the property around ten years ago with a stylish, glass and oak framed kitchen/breakfast room extension on the west side.
At present the accommodation is based on a small entrance hall leading to the snug and sitting room, both with working fireplaces. The double aspect sitting room with oak flooring leads into the dining room, again double aspect with quarry tiled floor. Both the snug and dining room lead into the large and airy kitchen/breakfast room with its high ceiling. The kitchen is fitted with a range of timber floor and wall cupboards, oak flooring and a lovely outlook over the gardens. Also on the ground floor is a small cloakroom.
The original timber staircase leads off the sitting room to the first floor landing. The principal bedroom has an original wooden floor, a double aspect and en suite bathroom. Also off the first floor landing is the family shower room and a secondary staircase up to the second floor. On the second floor are two further, attic bedrooms.
The property sits off the village lane approached through a timber five bar gate. There is a 2 bay open fronted car port and ample parking. The house sits towards the centre of the plot with lawned gardens all around. There is a west facing patio area outside the kitchen/breakfast room with a lovely view towards the Malvern Hills. The total plot is believed to extend to just over one third of an acre. The property is offered with No Onward Chain.
The owners have obtained planning permission under reference 20/01167/LBC for a ground floor extension to include a bedroom, bathroom and utility room, further details can be found on the Tewkesbury Borough Council planning portal.

A 'proper' olde worlde cottage with bags of character - working fireplaces, masses of beams and 'wonky' wooden floors - plus it's in a great village, well known locally for its cricket club and annual quarter marathon!Catherine Anderson
