This very special home is set in the most delightful garden and grounds of around 1/3 of an acre, with spacious reception rooms, four double bedrooms, beautiful exterior and an impressive approach.

The converted hop kiln is striking with many attractive features including a witchs’ cowl, a third floor, the cathedral window in the study, and a beautiful stained-glass window depicting the Malvern Hills in bedroom one.

Approached via a private access road, grand electronically operated wooden gates open to the long driveway, with a large lawned area to the side. This impressive looking property is framed with established climbing plants and has a generous gravel parking area that leads to the large detached double garage with electric doors and a useful storage room above with power and accessed through a separate rear door.

Upon entering you are greeted by the welcoming reception hallway, with doors off to the reception rooms, stairs to the first floor with a useful under stair storage cupboard, and a modern high-quality wet room with WC, vanity unit with hand basin and large shower.

The large dual aspect kitchen has been fitted with an array of wooden shaker-style units topped with a natural stonework surface, complimented by the light stone floor tiles. Integrated appliances include a hidden rising Neff extractor and induction hob, a tall Neff double oven with warming tray, a Quooker hot water tap, one and a half freestanding dishwashers (included in the sale) and space for an American style fridge freezer.

Centrally, there is space for a breakfast table and chairs or an island. It is flooded with natural light from the full width conservatory, which extends the kitchen space into a great utility area with space for a washing machine and tumble dryer. Doors at either end of both the kitchen and utility provide access to the garden beyond.

To the left of the hallway is the open plan dining and sitting room, which flows to the study. This lovely space is carpeted and feels very homely, the dining area has an exposed ceiling beam and sliding doors leading out to the terrace, making this a fabulous area of the home for entertaining. The sitting room has a multi-fuel stove on a stone plinth with space for logs and a handmade bookcase, providing excellent storage, ideal for housing a large wall-mounted TV. From here there are doors leading to the conservatory and to the study.

The study is a light and bright room fitted with an abundance of wall and floor office furniture, a second staircase leading to bedroom one and a full-height arched window framing a set of French doors opening out to the garden.

The conservatory runs the full depth of the property and provides even more space for entertaining or for absorbing the stunning gardens.

First floor
To the first floor there are four double bedrooms, bedroom one has a staircase providing access from the study below. The glass balustrading provides a boutique feeling, it is a luxurious room with a balcony that can accommodate seating and overlooks the garden.

There is also plenty of space for additional furniture, a built-in wardrobe and a contemporary ensuite Jack and Jill bathroom with a large vanity unity and basin, WC, bathtub, separate shower cubicle and back lit blue tiles amongst the white wall tiles.

Bedroom two is primarily used as the principal bedroom, it is a pretty room and has a plethora of fitted bedroom furniture, a vanity sink and also accesses the Jack and Jill ensuite.

Bedroom three is a lovely dual aspect room, with a built-in wardrobe, and on the landing next to it is a great shower room, with double walk-in shower, WC and vanity unit with wash hand basin. A small staircase leads up to bedroom four which has a fitted wardrobe and dressing table/workspace.

The gardens are a real feature of this home and have been the subject of a local "Open Garden" scheme for a number of years. They offer many inviting areas for enjoyment and relaxation. The completely private lawned garden is bordered by established planting including mature trees and shrubs, with many areas enjoying the sun all day long.

The kitchen opens out to a paved patio area where there is ample space for dining furniture and leads round to the raised decking areas. The larger decking has a summerhouse which has power and lighting, space for outdoor furniture and the second is home to a greenhouse.

The greenhouse is next to an 8-circuit controlled garden irrigation system with soaker hoses (on unmetered water). Both spaces look out across the garden allowing you to take in its full majesty and opposite is a larger summerhouse which is currently used as a home gym which has power, wi-fi and a delightful electric water feature in the rockery outside.

Adding to the appeal of this property are the open fields/farmland to the rear.

For safety, there is security lighting to the front and rear doors. The main gates are operated from the house, as are the garage doors.

Oil fired central heating, mains power, unmetered mains water and shared private drainage. Additionally, there is fast broadband with download speeds of 70.3 Mb/s, an alarm system and CCTV.
