Mary Garden Cottage is a charming Grade II listed black & white timber-framed cottage, thought to date from circa 1590 and therefore possibly one of the oldest properties in Bewdley.

Occupying a superb position just yards from the riverside and within a very short walk of the bars, restaurants and pavement cafes alongside Severnside North, this is the perfect town centre location - right in the middle of everything, yet hidden away in a private courtyard accessed off Dog Lane with sunny South facing patio gardens including a fishpond and summerhouse.

The interior is exquisitely presented, displaying exposed timbers and brickwork indicative of the property's rich Tudor heritage combined with later alterations.

Court No.1 is situated immediately behind the front row cottages which face the river on Severn Side North. This peaceful little enclave includes Mary Garden Cottage and two neighbours each with associated pedestrian rights of shared access.

A brick paved path leads to the green painted entrance porch to the property, with half glazed double doors and external carriage lantern.

The porch gives access via a half glazed inner door to the splendid living room, with slate flagstone floor and bow window to front elevation, superbly presented with exposed timber framework and ceiling beams plus full exposed brick feature wall including corner hearth with log burning stove. A dog-leg staircase with useful storage cupboard below leads up to the first floor, whilst a door leads through to the kitchen area.

Measuring almost 15' x 11' overall, the well proportioned breakfast kitchen features oak flooring and a comprehensive range of cream wall and base cabinets complemented by wooden work surfaces incorporating a Belfast sink with overhead plate rack. In contrast with the cream cabinets, there is a full height integral fridge/ freezer and larder cupboard each with oak panelled doors plus under-counter space for a washing machine and dishwasher.

The kitchen has ample space for a breakfast table & chairs, and also features a boxed window seat and split stable-type door out to the shared patio area. There is also a dual fuel Rangemaster cooker with electric oven and five ring gas hob plus a useful full height cupboard and full height wine rack.

To the first floor, the landing displays part of the original timber framework and doors radiate off to the two principal double bedrooms and bathroom. The larger bedroom has oak flooring and exposed wall timbers whilst the second bedroom has a useful inbuilt double wardrobe closet.

The bathroom features floor tiling and wall tiling to half height with suite comprising Jacuzzi bath having hand-held shower hose attachment, plus low level wc, vanity unit with table top circular hand basin plus an inbuilt rack of drawers.

Also off the landing is a further room, presently used as a dressing room with concealed wardrobe hanging space with storage shelf above. This room could also provide a useful study area, but also has a flight of stairs leading up to a second floor bedroom with step-through to compact en-suite shower area incorporating a tiled cubicle with mixer shower. This arrangement works particularly well as an occasional guest suite or indeed as a teenager's room.

A gas fired central heating system is installed, with the boiler having been replaced approximately five years ago and most recently serviced in October 2019. Mains gas, electricity, water and drainage are all connected. Council tax is payable to Wyre Forest District Council, rated as Band D.
