3 The Reddings

This endearing cottage has been extended and refurbished by the current owners to provide a very comfortable, and cosy home. Planning permission, which has now lapsed, was granted in the past to add two further bedrooms to make this a four-bedroom house if required.
The modern kitchen/breakfast room offers plenty of storage and is complemented by high gloss units with granite work-surfaces, and benefits from an integrated dishwasher, fridge and microwave, with space for a range cooker, Everhot, or similar, and will easily accommodate a table and chairs.
The comfortable sitting room features a wood-burner which provides a lovely focal point for this room and leads directly through to the conservatory.
The conservatory also leads directly through to the kitchen and enjoys views over the garden, which can be accessed via a pair of patio doors.
There is also a useful, downstairs WC and a lovely Oak framed front entrance hall.
Stairs lead up to the first floor where there are two bedrooms and a large bathroom. The good-sized, main double bedroom benefits from fitted wardrobes and views over the garden and surrounding countryside. The small single room is currently used as a dressing room/storage.

The Outside

The property is approached off a rural lane and parking can be found to the front of the property.
There is a large, beautifully maintained, and fully enclosed south facing garden located to the rear of the property. This is mainly lawn, complemented by attractively planted herbaceous borders and a spacious patio terrace, perfect for seasonal dining, morning coffee and entertaining.
A smart, gravelled pathway leads down through the garden to a painted timber summerhouse which has been upgraded to include underfloor heating, a steel roof and internet connection, and is currently used as an occasional bedroom for staying guests, but also offers a versatile space for a variety of uses, such as a studio, home office, games room, hobbyist workshop, etc.
A variety of timber storage sheds, a log store and workshop are situated off the patio area, which can be accessed externally via a gated entrance or directly from the house.
Excellent access to the Common and the renowned Malvern Hills.
