This imposing period home is one of the most impressive properties Bewdley has to offer. Several things stand this property apart from the others, including the vast array of period detail found throughout the interior coupled with the sheer scale of accommodation, all of which is beautifully complemented by the most amazing rear gardens, which have in the past been opened to the public as part of the National Garden Scheme. Such high-quality outside space is a rarity in the centre of town as is the garaging which adjoins the residence.

Like many properties within the High Street, an interesting history comes with it. The interior originates from the 1600s whilst the elegant bay-fronted facade complete with stained-glass dates back to the Georgian era as do the third-floor additions. Also, like other properties within the town, this was once a coach house during the nineteenth century.

The property is approached from the High Street via an ornate enclosed porch, with wooden double doors and the most exquisite stained-glass windows, which also feature in the main front door. Adjoining the property is a sizeable, attached garage, the importance and rarity of which cannot be overstated considering the central location where many other properties have no parking at all.
Said garage is accessed from the High Street via double wooden doors and can accommodate a reasonably sized family car. The garage has a high ceiling, which could incorporate potential loft storage.

Once inside you are welcomed by a splendid reception hall, which is brimming with character and includes exposed beams and floorboards, with doors leading from here to the dining room and the inner hallway and stairs rising to the first floor.

Dining room
The comfortable bay-fronted dining room has an attractive Victorian-style fireplace as a centrepiece in addition to the exposed oak floorboards and wall lights.

Sitting room
There is a fantastic sitting room flooded with natural light from the two west-facing windows, which overlook the beautiful rear gardens. This room also features a door to the garden and a wood-burning stove, which is ideal for those cold winter nights.

Also featured on the ground is a characterful and traditional styled kitchen, which is of excellent quality and tastefully blends with the rest of the house. This room has a wonderful high ceiling with downlighters and a skylight. There is an AGA situated within a brick fireplace, which has lighting and pull-out larder cupboards to either side.

The comprehensive range of matching wall and base units is complemented by granite work surfaces and an inset Belfast sink. Integrated appliances include a dishwasher, a tumble dryer, a washing machine and a fridge. There is also delightful flagstone flooring, a wall-mounted combination boiler and a glazed door flowing nicely onto a gravelled seating area and the gardens beyond.

Tucked away at the end of the inner hallway, there is a useful cloak area, with a door leading to the most stylish WC, which is beautifully decorated.

There is also a wonderful double cellar beneath the house accessed from the hallway. The cellar provides an amazing space for storage, with power, lighting and good headroom.

First floor
The first-floor accommodation cannot fail to impress, with three double bedrooms serviced by a luxury bathroom. The room sizes and overall space on offer will no doubt appeal to large families and those needing a home working space.

Each bedroom has something different to offer, enabling the resident to have a choice for what is used as the master. All the bedrooms exhibit the most amazing array of period beams, with two of the bedrooms on this floor having delightful bay windows overlooking the High Street.

Bedroom one
Bedroom one is the largest room of the three on the first floor and has beautiful exposed beams to the wall and ceiling and ample space for freestanding furniture.

Bedroom two
To the rear of the property, bedroom two is a light and spacious double room.

Family bathroom
The family bathroom is incredibly spacious and beautifully styled to a high-quality finish, fully tiled and complete with a free-standing roll-top bath, a shower cubicle, down lighters, a chrome towel radiator, a wall-mounted washbasin and a low-level WC with a hidden cistern.

Bedroom five
Adjacent to the stairwell, bedroom five makes a fantastic home office space with a large bay window to fill the room with natural light.

Second floor
The second floor once again features three spacious double bedrooms with a myriad of exposed beams and great elevated views across the rooftops and gardens.

Bedroom three
The largest of the second-floor bedrooms features a beautiful exposed timber beam ceiling and ample space for freestanding furniture.

Bedroom four
Bedroom four is a double room filled with character and charm with built-in wardrobes as well as plenty of space for freestanding furniture. There is an excellent ensuite adjoining the bedroom, packed with exposed beams and comprising a tiled shower, a WC, a washbasin, down lighters and a Velux style window.

The last room on the second floor is the home office space. This room could be used as a single guest room.

Gardens and grounds
Just like the property itself, the walled gardens have to be one of the best Bewdley town has to offer and are a real credit to owners past and present. The sheer size of the gardens is not the only thing that stands them apart, it is also the way they have been designed and landscaped making them akin to something you might see at a country manor or arboretum.

The south-facing orientation is incredibly important too, making the gardens a real suntrap even in the autumn and winter months.

This incredible family-friendly space is completely enclosed by period walling making for a secret garden feel, which is extremely private and secure for children and animals. There are many different parts to the garden, each interlinked by archways, starting from a gravelled seating area outside the kitchen ideal for alfresco dining, with a lovely circular lawn beyond.

A covered brick and timber walkway canopied by mature wisteria leads to the next section of the garden, which features the most charming ornamental fish pond.

There is also a circular seating and barbecue area, all complemented by a wonderful rustic gazebo, which blends into the leafy surroundings beautifully.

An archway from the barbecue area leads to the upper section of the gardens, which are made up of sweeping lawns, an orchard of fig, mulberry, apple, greengage, cherry and plum trees, raised beds, along with a useful shed and a greenhouse. There are also two gated entry points accessing a useful walkway at the side of the house leading to the High Street.

Agents note
The Antiquary is subject to a Grade II listed status and falls within a conservation area.

The property has mains gas, mains electricity, mains water, mains drainage and broadband.
