Abberton is a small historic hamlet dating back to The Domesday Book surrounded by glorious Worcestershire countryside and a close community of nearby villages of Flyford Flavell, Inkberrow, Bishampton and The Lenches. Shopping facilities can be found in the towns of Alcester, Pershore and Evesham whilst Stratford-upon- Avon and the cathedral city of Worcester are within easy reach. Two M5 motorway access points at Worcester offer easy commuting to Birmingham and the West Midlands and to the South West. A main line railway station at Pershore provides easy commuting to London as well as other rural centres and the newly opened Worcestershire Parkway provides excellent links to Birmingham and London. The villages of Flyford Flavell, Inkberrow and Church Lench have primary schools, and a middle school at nearby Pinvin. Worcester and Stratford have further excellent state and private schooling.
Glebe Cottage is a delightful Grade ll listed residence, a warm blend of the original 17th century timber framing with partial cream rendering and a renovated red brick facade. The property naturally exudes all period charm with wall and ceiling elm beams and latched doors with the benefit of majority timber double glazing and heating via an oil fired Rayburn stove. Inglenook and brick recessed fireplaces provide attractive focus in the three principal reception rooms. From the parking area the property is entered via a tiled canopy porch to the dining room which is well proportioned and demonstrates the period charm of the property with double aspect windows, recess for stove having brick surround, flagstone hearth and oak mantel over. An enclosed staircase rises to the master bedroom suite and the room is complemented with warm solid oak flooring. The centrepiece of the property is a good-sized sitting room which has a stunning inglenook fireplace inset with a striking cast Dovre wood-burning stove which can be run with the doors open to create all the character of an open fire. Heated tiled flooring and access to the garden patio via a further porch entrance door is ideal for entertaining. Stairs also rise to the second and third bedrooms. To the northern extent of the property is a delightful multipurpose room which, depending on family demands, could equally be used as a bedroom or family room/snug. Inset into the brick feature fireplace recess is a cast Morso ‘Squirrel’ wood-burning stove. Off the central living area the bright semi-vaulted kitchen is fitted with antique pine floor and wall cabinets with an inset Rayburn dual burner oil fired stove, De Dietrich electric induction hob, integral dishwasher and inset white ceramic one and a half drainer sink. Quarry tile flooring reclaimed from the property extends into a breakfast/family area ideal for family meals. To the opposite end of the kitchen a rear lobby/boot room with original flagstone flooring has access to the side garden and further door to a fitted shower room. The upstairs accommodation includes a separate master bedroom suite. This bright double aspect room includes Sharps fitted wardrobes and bedroom cabinets and access to an ensuite bathroom with separate steel bath, shower and his and hers sinks.
