Come and take a look around…..
As you enter through the double gates across the sweeping driveway, you’ll be greeted by the attractive mellow brick barn and the stunning views towards the Malvern Hills.
Through the front door and into the light filled reception hall that leads you through double doors into all the main living spaces.
The kitchen with vaulted ceiling is particularly special with a porcelain tile floor, hand painted cabinets and a mix of contrasting granite work tops and oak top island. All integral appliances including electric fan assisted oven and gas hob, dishwasher, microwave and fridge/freezer. Plus, for all you Aga fans, a gas fired 2 oven cream Aga that keeps the kitchen nice and toasty! Those halcyon days of summer you can always throw open the two sets of double doors onto the dining terrace and out onto the gardens!
The dining room and sitting room both have wood burners, but the sitting room has a beautiful vaulted ceiling and door to the most wonderful walled garden (and who doesn’t love a walled garden!). Plus, what we have called the family room also has a door to the same garden. With a utility room off this space as well, it could be easily converted into a self-contained annex space for family.
Upstairs, all the bedrooms have commanding views and exposed beams, giving a sense of space, light and history, all rolled into one!
Once you are up out of bed there is so much outdoor space to enjoy, tennis court if that’s your thing? A large glasshouse if gardening is your passion, a duckpond if you enjoy wildlife, or the paddocks if you enjoy equine pastimes. Indeed, something for everyone!
Oh, and then there’s the triple garage and workshop….need we say more?
