With direct access onto the Malvern Hills, Ebenezer Cottage is a perfect home for walkers, riders and lovers of the outdoors looking for a peaceful setting with glorious views. It is one of a small number of period properties situated on Castlemorton common itself, and yet is within five miles of the picturesque town centres of both Malvern and Ledbury.
The house is approached via a short private track which ends at the detached double garage with forecourt parking for two cars. Past it are wooden gates opening to a driveway which is suitable for a further two vehicles.
There is a traditional Victorian porch framing the entrance where the front door opens to the hallway. Stairs rise to the first floor and doors lead off to the ground floor rooms.
To the right is an original pine Victorian door which opens to a large front facing reception room. A bay window allows in loads of natural light and provides views over the common towards the Malvern hills, while neutral decor compliments the brick and reclaimed timber fireplace with open fire.
The breakfast/dining room overlooks the vegetable garden and has an archway to the kitchen which creates a wonderful living area and a great sense of space. There is a wood burning stove set in the chimney breast with bespoke reclaimed wood shelving to either side.
Moving through to the kitchen you are immediately attracted by the oil-fired Rayburn which provides both the central heating and options for cooking. Fitted with a range of sleek and contemporary white floor units topped with a solid wood worksurface, there is also a double gas LPG hob, 1 1/2 basin sink, space for a freestanding refrigerator and an integrated dishwasher. The dual aspect takes in the vegetable garden and the main garden.
An extremely useful ground floor shower room with walk-in double shower, handbasin and WC is next and leads on to a built-in storage cupboard and a large utility/boot room. The utility room has a tiled floor and is fitted with shaker style wall and floor units providing ample storage. Further there is a Belfast sink, and space and plumbing for a washing machine. A door opens out to the decking area and garden beyond.
To the left end of the hallway is a great reception room with large sliding doors which offer floor to ceiling light and views over the paddocks. The sliding doors open out to a lovely decked terrace area, perfect for evening drinks and alfresco dining.
The stairs feature the original wooden balustrade and there is a lovely window overlooking the paddocks. Straight ahead is the modern family bathroom, featuring a corner bathtub with shower over, a basin with vanity storage unit and WC.
Next to the bathroom is bedroom three which is currently used as an exquisite office. It's a lovely room overlooking the far paddock, garage and vegetable garden.
Continuing along the hallway is the guest bedroom (bedroom 2) which is a large double with built-in wardrobe space and overlooks the paddock and stables. It also has a lovely original Victorian fireplace.
Moving towards the front of the property is the large double master bedroom, again with original Victorian fireplace and wonderful views of the surrounding common, hills and countryside.
The fourth bedroom is currently used as a large walk-in wardrobe which also has views out to the front of the surrounding common. In the past it had bunkbeds in this room for children. Next to this room is an airing cupboard with space for the water tank and also clothing.
Behind the double garage, which has a new roof, is the vegetable garden in raised beds and herb garden. Further on is a large paddock with the stables and foaling box which has gained planning to turn into a holiday cottage which would provide an excellent additional income, or it could be additional accomodation for friends and relatives
In total there are 5 paddocks and many producing fruit trees including apples, plums, damsons and pears.
Directly outside the house is a decking area for alfresco dining and enjoying the evening sunshine. There is a lawned area beyond framed by established shrubs. There is also a wooden summerhouse with further apple trees and pears and an external gate onto the common with access rights.
