Located in the popular village of Colwall, this property provides a rare opportunity to buy a two bedroom residence in a very central position. Colwall is a well serviced village sitting on the western side of the Malvern Hills, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Good public transport and most amenities are available in the village.

Courtyard Cottage

This comfortable property is a period barn conversion, formerly an electricity substation. Now providing attractive and compact accommodation, ideally suited for a couple or a single person.
Accessed off Walwyn Road but set behind the main street front, this property is secluded and quiet.
Within easy walking distance to all Colwall's facilities, the property benefits from mains services, but will probably require a little updating.
A small courtyard provides access to the front door, opening to a spacious, vaulted living room which leads to the kitchen at the rear of the property.
The fitted kitchen, with dining space has French doors opening to a patio and the large southeast facing garden.
There is a modest ground floor double bedroom and walk-through dressing area, with built in wardrobes.
A generous shower room is situated on the ground floor, opposite the main bedroom.
Stairs lead to a first-floor single bedroom which has Velux windows.

The Outside

Access from Walwyn Road is via a right of way over the driveway owned by the neighbouring Chester House, between this and Brighton Villa.
There is a vehicular right of access over this driveway and historically, two vehicles have parked beside the property.
From the driveway, a pedestrian gate provides access to the garden, behind the cottage.
The generous garden is a long rectangle with a smart summer house at the far end. This is insulated and has power for lighting & heating.
The garden borders the old railway sidings, now a small commercial workshop area.
Beside the front courtyard is a small lock-up store room and a separate outside WC.
