The Property

This captivating and secluded property reached by a long daffodil-lined driveway offers a traditional farmhouse with a wealth of character, exposed timbers, wood flooring, inglenook fireplace and providing ample interconnecting living space. The open flow of the Dining Room into the Drawing Room creates a wonderful entertaining space with external door allowing parties to spill out into the glorious gardens festooned with roses and clematis.

The array of traditional farm buildings surrounding the courtyard offers huge potential for multi-generational living or entrepreneurial pursuits. The stone and timber barn already offers lovely Guest Accommodation with large Double Bedroom with full Ensuite but excitingly further scope to complete to taste and desired purpose, with the second storey double room Studio with plumbing and power already in situ, to create a family annexe privately oriented to the gardens, a superb Holiday Let or B’n’B. The cruck frame Threshing Barn next door with original flagstone floor also offers endless potential; all of course subject to relevant permissions. The run of Brick Infill Stabling with loose boxes is accessed by wide ramp while the Courtyard is completed by useful Cart Sheds making ideal car ports and open storage. To the rear is a 5 bay Dutch Barn with shiplap timber rear wall and lean-to, ideal for covered storage of perhaps horse trailers.

The long driveway sweeps between 2 post and rail Paddocks and a species-rich Woodland. With a wide trail dissecting through and along much of the boundary giving unusual access into the wood, ideal for riding but also potentially for opening up Glamping sites to enjoy the glorious views across an undulating pastoral landscape all the way to Clee Hill in Shropshire. Closer to the house the Orchard with open lawn and several fruit trees also enjoys these stunning vistas. While in front of the house, sumptuous gardens and a woodland glade give way to the sublime panorama of 3 counties, with the entire inky purple outline of the Malvern Hills simply breath-taking.      
This private and peaceful rural idyll lies only 5miles from the market town of Bromyard while the nearby cities of Hereford 12miles and Malvern 20miles offer fine Independent schools as does Worcester also 20miles away with its nearby access to the M5 and under an hour and a half journey time to central Birmingham and the airport.  

Stepping through the Front Door leads into the green oak frame Garden Room, a welcoming and relaxing space made cosy by a Woodburner, an ideal spot for reading, basking in those sublime views to the Malverns or wandering out into the garden through the French doors. Beyond lies the spacious Sitting Room with exposed timbers and brick fireplace, home to a Woodburner. 

Original stone steps lead up into the Drawing Room, a lovely room of grand proportions enjoying triple aspect with external glazed door to gardens and featuring an inglenook fireplace also with a Woodburner.  Open timber framing divides the Dining Room creating a flowing entertaining space with practical access to the Kitchen, passing the Cellar door leading down into a large Cellar room with external door access and providing useful cold storage. 

The country Kitchen, fully-fitted in oak cabinets, has ample space for table, wood flooring and twin Belfast sinks beneath one of twin picture windows to the Malverns. There is a 4 oven oil-fired Aga and both integrated dishwasher and 2 under-counter fridges.  

Off the Kitchen lies the large Utility/Boot Room, with External door to the drive, is home to the Worcester boiler, has Belfast sink and provides ample space for laundry white goods and chest freezers. To the side is the Downstairs WC.   

Upstairs the Master Bedroom features steps down into an initial dressing area with built-in wardrobe and access to the full bath Ensuite before the exposed timber frame of the Bedroom with vaulted ceiling and triple aspect windows.

Back along the hall the large open Landing with picture window to the Malverns view and fitted wall of wardrobes with cupboards above offers an obvious and easily enclosed Double Bedroom. 

Two further Double Bedrooms, one with an Ensuite Shower, WC, basin and heated towel rail, share characterful pitched ceilings with beams and exposed wall timbers. The Family Bathroom has full bath, WC and pedestal basin. While at the hall’s end lies a capacious Airing Cupboard, housing the hot water tank and deep batten shelving.
