12 Green Hill is conveniently positioned being only a few minutes’ walk down the hill to Sidbury, the Cathedral and into the City centre. The property is perfectly positioned to take advantage of the proximity of the excellent facilities that
Worcester has to offer including the range of independent schools, mainline rail station providing regular services to Birmingham, London and the South West. For commuting, the
house is extremely well placed, being just a few minutes’ drive from Junction 7 of the M5.
The property is a handsome detached Grade II listed house dating from circa 1830, with a modern single storey annexe built at the rear of the property. Historical research reveals that the
house was owned originally by Scottish entrepreneur, Robert Hardy, who came to Worcester in 1814, co-founding the worldrenowned iron foundry, Hardy & Padmore. In addition to the ornate cast iron porch to the front, the house retains two original cast iron fireplaces believed to be designs from one of the
foundry’s early pattern books. The current owners have completely refurbished and renovated the property to an extremely high standard striking a perfect balance of retaining the wealth of period features yet introducing stylish contemporary additions. The original entrance door has a feature ‘Cathedral glass’ stained glass window over and the main hallway has an authentic Victorian black and white tiled floor, original decorative cornicing and two stunning reception rooms off both with high ceilings, sash windows with shutters, reclaimed fireplaces with gas fires and original exposed wooden floorboards. An archway from the hallway leads to an inner hall with the impressive staircase to the first floor with the original mahogany handrail and black lead balustrading. A further reception room believed
to have formerly been the scullery has a reclaimed fireplace with a slate hearth and a gas fire, views across to the Cathedral and wooden flooring. The kitchen with adjacent open plan sitting and dining areas is a fabulous versatile living space with two sets of bifold doors opening out across the width of the room onto the courtyard garden and together with Velux windows flood the room with natural light. The kitchen area has a fabulous and extensive range of modern and stylish high gloss grey kitchen units to include a larder unit and integral AEG
appliances to include a fridge, freezer, double oven, steam oven and combi microwave and the central island with Slab Tech worktop has a breakfast bar, integral AEG dishwasher, induction
hob and ‘pop up’ extractor together with a stainless steel sink unit with a boiling hot water tap. From the rear hallway there is a utility room with fitted units, recesses for the usual appliances and the Worcester gas fired boiler. A boot room provides an excellent storage area and there is a stylish separate cloakroom/shower room. A door from the rear hallway leads down to the basement/cellar which has emergency lighting and two spacious rooms providing excellent dry storage. On the first floor on a half landing there is a self-contained guest suite with a dual aspect bedroom with an extensive range of modern fitted wardrobes and bedroom furniture and an en-suite shower room. The main landing is light and spacious and there are four large and elegant bedrooms all with original or reclaimed fireplaces and lovely views across to the Cathedral and in the distance the Malvern Hills. The luxury family
bathroom has an Italian marble tiled floor and a white Burlington suite with a free standing bath and a corner rainwater shower cubicle.
The property has a granite set apron to the front of double wooden electric gates to a gravelled driveway which provides excellent off road parking and there is a single garage. The walled courtyard garden is low maintenance with a lawned area and a large patio to the rear of the main house which provides a lovely seating and alfresco dining area.
