Location & Description:
Ferryman's Cottage enjoys an unrivalled riverside location less than a mile from the ancient and historic village of Uckinghall which is only two miles from Upton upon Severn where there is a full range of amenities including shops, a Bank, Post Office, a Doctor's Surgery and several Public Houses as well as the famous Riverside Marina. The larger town of Tewkesbury is just under four miles away and the property is handily placed for junction one of the M50 motorway (about 2 miles) and for the larger centres of Gloucester, Cheltenham and Worcester.
Originally constructed in 1999 the property is a striking and versatile detached three storey house with LPG gas fired central heating and double glazed windows. The accommodation is both versatile and generous. On the ground floor an entrance hall leads to a cloakroom with WC, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, lounge and a study that can double as a bedroom when required. There is a further separate WC at this level as well. On the first floor a landing leads to four bedrooms one of which has its own en-suite bathroom. There is also a separate family bathroom. On the top floor a long landing leads to bedrooms five and six.
Without doubt however it is the setting the property enjoys that is its most striking feature. Approached from the village of Uckinghall along a private road across common land the house is one of two constructed at the same time on the banks of the River Severn. It has the added bonus of mooring and fishing rights and enjoys fine views not only across totally unspoilt countryside and the River Severn itself but also across a large fishing lake to the rear. There is off road parking for at least three vehicles and a garage. There is a good size landscaped garden.

FISHING AND MOORING RIGHTS
It should be noted that The Ferryman's Cottage has its own LANDING JETTY and MOORING RIGHTS as well as almost one and a half miles of single bank fishing rights.
It is understood that records show that although the access road to The Ferryman's Cottage has in extreme cases flooded, the house itself has not. Indeed when it was constructed it was built on elevated ground to ensure that this eventuality would not arise.
We have been advised that mains electricity and water are connected. Drainage is to the septic tank. Central heating is provided by an LPG system. This information has not been checked with the respective service providers and interested parties may wish to make their own enquiries with the relevant authorities. No statement relating to services or appliances should be taken to infer that such items are in satisfactory working order and intending purchasers are advised to satisfy themselves where necessary.
We are advised (subject to legal verification) that the property is freehold.
