Three Interesting Cellar Rooms

A really interesting steam railway heritage property, originally the crossing keeper's cottage now providing a spacious three bedroom detached bungalow of immense character, with annexe potential and views to rear.

Originally dating from 1862 and built as the Crossing Keeper's cottage for the Great Western Railway company, this fascinating historic property served the local community for over 100 years before the closure of the railway line circa 1970.

The property was the subject of a comprehensive renovation and extension project completed in 2004 which transformed the property into a spacious three bedroom single storey residence whilst taking great care to preserve the original heritage of the cottage, skilfully blending new and old materials to ensure a genuine authenticity to the whole of the building.

Indeed the renovation of Crossing Cottage received a commendation from Stourport on Severn Civic Society in March 2006. It has also been the subject of much interest from many steam railway aficianados, with the Severn Valley Railway having provided an original length of train track now situated on the forecourt.

Since 2014 the present owners have further improved the property with a number of tasteful enhancements, all in keeping with the authenticity of the era whilst creating a home well suited to modern living.

The property lies back from the road behind a gravelled forecourt with parking for up to seven cars. The main entrance door leads in to a generous reception hall with ornate quarry tiled flooring and doors radiating off to all principal rooms plus a useful laundry cupboard.

The focal point of the home is the unusual open‐plan 21' x 21' living room which was originally
four separate rooms, subsequently opened up to create a large overall space with high pitched ceiling and a central four‐way chimney column to include multi‐fuel stove, gas‐fired replica stove and two further decorative cast iron fireplace surrounds. This multi purpose living space provides separate sitting, dining and study areas, as required.

Leading off the living area is a splendid refitted breakfast kitchen retaining original facing brickwork, high pitched ceiling, a comprehensive range of cabinets and central island unit, all complimented by solid beech work surfaces and an attractive slate tiled floor.

The kitchen has a range of fitted appliances included to comprise Rangemaster Kitchener 90 range style cooker with two electric ovens, grill and 5‐ring gas hob, plus freestanding dishwasher and Hoover washing machine.

There are three double bedrooms, the master bedroom featuring a range of fitted wardrobes as well as an en‐suite shower room.

The beautifully styled principal bathroom has a tiled floor, contemporary wooden wall panelling, partial wall tiling to half height and suite comprising claw foot bath, period style vanity unit with hand basin, low level wc plus shower cubicle in exposed brick surround.

To the rear of the property is a wide paved & gravelled patio terrace with raised decking area enjoying fine, far reaching views over farm fields. Steps lead down to a lower garden area featuring an original water well plus access door to the extensive cellarage which includes three connecting vaults, in itself being an interesting feature of the property.

Furthermore the original detached garage has now been extended and adapted to provide a workshop with connecting informal office/ studio space plus wet room and kitchenette, all with double glazing and providing potential annexe accommodation, subject of course to the necessary planning consent.

Tenure is freehold and council tax is payable to Wyre Forest District Council, rated as band E.
Gas fired central heating is installed and wood-effect upvc double glazing is fitted throughout. Mains gas, electricity, water & drainage are connected.

This fascinating and unique property is well deserving of a personal inspection to appreciate the character and charm of this important link to Stourport's long forgotten railway line.
