New House Farm is located on a quiet country lane approximately 2 miles from the popular village of Inkberrow. The village benefits from a range of local amenities including a post office, shop, doctors’ surgery, public houses and a well regarded primary school. In addition, there is a sports club and thriving local community. More extensive shopping and leisure facilities are to be found in the cathedral city of Worcester together with Alcester and Stratford upon Avon. There is an excellent choice of state and private schools in the locality including the Kings School and RGS in Worcester. For the commuter there is easy access to the M5, both Junctions 6 and 7, connecting to Birmingham in the north and Bristol to the south. In addition, the new Worcester Parkway station (due to open in 2019) is easily reached to the south east of Worcester at Norton about 11 miles away.
New House Farm comprises a fine detached red brick farmhouse, constructed to a high standard in 1989 in a superb elevated position with distant views to the south. Approached through a galleried reception hall, the accommodation is extremely well laid out with the principal rooms enjoying the views. The sitting room is a large double aspect room with a south facing bay window, with the main feature of the room being the large brick fireplace with beam above and wood burning stove. To one side is the dining room with feature brick wall and wooden flooring which opens out into the stunning garden room, being timber framed with wraparound windows and wooden floor, with the most amazing views down the valley. The kitchen breakfast room is well appointed with a range of wall and base units, integral oven and ceramic hob and with space for a breakfast table. A door leads through to the well appointed utility room and on through into the impressive boot room which has a high vaulted ceiling and could be adapted as a study or playroom as required. Above the boot room is a dovecote.
Upstairs there are 3 large double bedrooms, all with fitted wardrobes and the master bedroom having a well appointed modern en-suite bathroom adjacent to which is the house bathroom.
New House Farm was designed and built with the future in mind, providing the opportunity for the house to be further extended by up to two stories if required on the north side of the building (subject to planning in the normal way).
Grounds and gardens
New House Farm is approached from Dormston Lane onto a wide brick edged gravelled driveway sweeping down to the front of the property with ample parking to the side and in front of the detached garage block, providing parking for 4 cars, two in an open fronted bay and a further two behind an electrically operated roller shutter door. Steps to one side lead up to the first floor office, a large room with Velux windows and eaves storage with, at the far end, a shower room and further storage. With the relevant consents this could be adapted to further ancillary accommodation if required. On the far side of the driveway is a high quality detached outbuilding, constructed in recent years of timber frame with brick in-fill panels to imitate a period barn with a cupola and weather vane. This secure building has a sliding wooden door with windows and provides excellent storage and workshop facilities. Attached to it at the far end is an open fronted barn with timber frame and brick flooring used by the present owners for al-fresco entertaining but which could be adapted for further storage of vehicles or for equestrian purposes.
The gardens at New House Farm are largely laid to lawn and surround the property on all sides. Immediately adjacent to the house is a paved terrace with covered verandah making an ideal space to enjoy the distant southerly views. There are well stocked shrub borders around the house and by the garage block is a perfect space for a vegetable patch if required.
The gardens are enclosed by post and rail fencing leading directly out onto the first of the paddocks which slopes gently down the hill side towards the large natural pond, a haven for wildlife.
The land at New House Farm is divided into 7 large field enclosures, separated by well maintained hedgerows and all of which are connected. There is excellent road access with a wide double field gate onto the A422. This is a productive block of arable land and farmed in hand and has recently been seeded for grass. In all the land extends to 75.6 acres (30.59 ha).
