The Green is a very pretty, listed thatched cottage by the village green in Charlton in Worcestershire. The property dates back to the 1600s and has been extended and remodelled while retaining the original features in its interior including wall and ceiling timbers, exposed stonework, leaded windows and a fine inglenook fireplace in the sitting room.

The period the property was built means some ceiling heights are low; the house has a cosy feel. Upstairs are the master bedroom and two further bedrooms, plus a family bathroom. The property was re-thatched in 2009.

The garden is mainly laid to lawn with stocked flower borders and a vegetable plot, and a large terrace with a summerhouse.  

Charlton has a pub, playgroup and church, and local amenities are within a couple of miles in Evesham and Pershore, both just a few miles distant.

The guide price is £375,000. For further information please contact Hamptons International on 01386 852205 or visit www.hamptons.co.uk.
