STRICTLY BY APPOINTMENT ONLY - CALL NEW HOMES

Fosters Green Cottage offers a unique opportunity in a much sought after tranquil locality.

A 17th century grade II listed detached cottage splendidly situated in the unspoilt rural countryside of Lower Bentley.

The cottage itself is now in need of extensive renovation, and although a two-storey extension was added some thirty-five years ago, still has huge amounts of potential to still realise.

The accommodation currently comprises four bedrooms, one bathroom, three reception rooms historic plans illustrate a fourth reception room at the westernmost aspect of the cottage.

On the 1.8 acre site is a large dilapidated L – shaped brick barn (partially used as a garage), and a further steel framed Dutch barn, both of which have potential scope for converting to stabling, work from home space, additional accommodation or separate dwellings subject to planning.

The tenure is freehold and is offered with no chain.

Fosters Green cottage is set in an idyllic tranquil countryside location surrounded by land owned by the Worcestershire Wildlife Trust, part of which, bordering the property known as Eades Meadow is a National Nature Reserve, well known because of its rare plants.

Lower Bentley is a quaint rural location within easy reach of Redditch (4 miles), Bromsgrove (4 miles) and has good access to the M5 motorway at Wychbold (4 miles) and the M42 with access to Birmingham Airport.
