Situated in an attractive location in the rural hamlet of Berrow, the property enjoys views over the surrounding countryside, with the renowned Malvern Hills only a short distance away.

This charming period property dates from the 1800's and offers spacious accommodation with annexe potential, perfect for multi-generational living or extra income.
The kitchen/breakfast room is a welcoming space with country-style fitted units, Belfast sink, central island and Rayburn, which is used for cooking, heating and hot water; there is also a conventional oven. The breakfast area with wood-burner overlooks the decked terrace and private garden, which can be accessed via a pair of French doors.
Flexible reception rooms by way of a cosy snug with wood-burner and a second sitting/family room ensure there is ample living space, along with a large dining room for more formal entertaining, or social gatherings.
