Property Snapshot

The long stone driveway is bordered by mature trees, woodland and paddocks, and brings you into a sweeping courtyard to the back of this handsome home.

The property is entered via a glazed front door which leads into a bright entrance hall with an adjoining WC. The WC is well appointed with a black and white tiled floor, low level WC and vanity unit with a washbasin. There is a privacy window here also. Doors to the kitchen and central dining room can be found here.

Dining room
On the older side of the property and centrally located, there is a large dining hall with a fabulous beamed ceiling, stairs leading to the first floor and double doors that open up into a south facing conservatory.

The conservatory has tiled floors and large windows, which can all be opened up to exploit the incredible views across the gardens and countryside beyond. There is also a glazed door here which opens onto a paved patio area and the back garden.

Drawing room
Adjacent to the dining room is a large and bright triple aspect drawing room which covers the whole width of the property. There are exposed bricks abound here and two inglenook fireplaces. The larger of the two is no longer in use, but the beam has been maintained and the inglenooks turned into shelving. The other is the focal point of the room, with windows to either side and a log-burning stove. There is also a glazed door here leading into the garden.

Kitchen
Immediately off the entrance hall is a wonderful country kitchen with a tiled floor, wooden wall and base mounted kitchen units, a centrally located oil-fired Aga with a feature brick chimney breast above and a large peninsula breakfast bar with more storage underneath. There are acres of tiled work surfaces and there is space for an under-the-counter fridge and a dishwasher. Across the breakfast bar, a fabulous dining area sits below a magnificent vaulted ceiling. There are several large windows in this room making it bright and cheerful.

Utility
The kitchen has a useful utility room with plumbing for a washing machine/dryer and a dishwasher. There is a large stainless-steel sink with drainer and mixer tap, and extra cupboard space on the walls. The oil-fired boiler is located here and there is a glazed back door to the garden, as well as a second back door to the inner porch. This connects to the large double garage which benefits from both power and lighting.


First floor
From the central dining hall a staircase rises to the first floor landing area, where there is a handy hot water tank/airing cupboard, doors to bedrooms one and two, and a staircase rising to the second floor.

Master bedroom
The magnificent master bedroom suite is dual aspect, with one window overlooking the nearby field and the other over the mill pond below. It benefits from a bright dressing room with substantial fitted wardrobes that have ample hanging space and shelving. There is a secret door here, that leads through into its own half-tiled en suite shower room with a shower cubicle, WC, bidet and vanity unit with washbasin.

Bedroom two
Bedroom two is a double bedroom with a wonderful view over the glorious countryside, an exposed beam and a radiator.

Bedrooms three
Bedroom three is a good-sized double with a large Velux window allowing plenty of natural light in. There are sloping ceilings, beams and a fitted cupboard. There is also access to the eaves here for extra storage.

Bedroom four
This is an L-shaped room which is probably more suited for a single bed, with sloping ceilings, a large Velux window and a smaller window with great views. There is a fitted wardrobe at one end.

Family bathroom
The family bathroom is in need of updating, but has a small grey boxed-in bath with a matching pedestal wash basin and low level WC. Another fabulous Velux style window here makes the room bright and airy.


Outside
The property sits in incredibly private gardens and grounds with a small paddock that runs along either side of a stream. There are fabulous trees and woodland within the curtilage and along the driveway there is a wood store which could easily be converted into a stable and tack/feed room while still retaining parking space.

The garden hosts a fantastic brick-paved patio with brick archways, a brick BBQ and a small pond with a fountain which is accessed from the courtyard or double doors from the drawing room. There are stepped terraces running down the side of the house to the mill pond and brook below, as well as a patio running the length of the back of the house which would be perfect for outdoor seating/dining.

Above the double garage there is a separate useful games room which the previous owners utilised it as a billiard room but could work as a nice home office.

This property has been empty for several years and is in need of some TLC. However, it has the potential to be an exceptional family home.

Services
Mains electricity, mains water, septic tank.

Partial double glazing.

Oil fired central heating, with radiators in main house and electric storage heaters in the room over garage.

Council tax band G.


Agent note there is a footpath intersecting the southernmost boundary of the property which provides access from this property into the glorious Worcestershire countryside.
