This charming and beautifully presented cottage is set by the Worcester and Birmingham Canal at Shernal Green. There is an access lane to another property in front of the cottage, but this does not obscure the views of the canal. The cottage has a quirky layout with character features and exposed beams.
On the ground floor there is a hallway, leading into a spacious sitting room with two windows overlooking the canal to the front and French doors opening to the garden to the rear. There is a long galley kitchen with windows on the Hay Lane side of the cottage. There is a large separate dining room with windows and a door to the garden at the side, and an inglenook fireplace with a log burner. The inner hallway has been arranged as a snug for peaceful reading or morning coffee, it has a door into the garden at the side, and stairs rising to the first floor. Finally there is a combined utility room and downstairs cloakroom with a window looking out towards the canal.
On the first floor there is a good sized double bedroom with a window overlooking the garden, a dressing area, and an ensuite shower room. There are two bedrooms ovelooking the canal to the front, one of which is a good sized double, and the other is a small double. Finally there is a bathroom with a separate shower cubicle.
The front garden is gravelled for off road parking, with a gate to the back garden. The back garden is mainly laid to lawn with a patio and a seating area at the bottom of the garden with a gazebo.
