Location & Description
This is a fine opportunity to acquire a striking Grade II listed town residence offering deceptively spacious accommodation in the centre of the historic riverside town of Upton upon Severn. The town offers an excellent range of amenities including shops, Post Office, bank, doctors and dental practices, a library, numerous churches, the famous Marina, and a primary school with senior schooling at Hanley Castle.
The town is well placed for access to the Malvern Hills and Cotswolds and to junction 1 of the M50 motorway which is only three miles distant. The larger centres of Worcester (10 miles), Malvern (7 miles), Cheltenham and Gloucester (both 15 miles) are also within easy reach.
Oak Apple Cottage is difficult to describe in any conventional manner but is perhaps best illustrated as a cottage apartment. As its listing implies it has history and architecture that go back several centuries but in more recent years it has been refurbished to offer comfortable spacious accommodation.
At ground floor level there is a small entrance lobby and stairwell leading to the first floor which is the real heart of the house. Here a landing leads to a cloakroom with WC, a dining room that can double as a third bedroom, a well equipped kitchen/breakfast room, an open plan study/hall and a charming sitting room. On the second floor a further landing leads to two more bedrooms and the main bathroom which also has a shower and WC. The property does not have any garden or allocated parking but it does have gas fired central heating.
Oak Apple Cottage is one of those homes which really has to be seen to be fully appreciated and understood.
