The Old Farmhouse is located at the end of its own long driveway, adjoining two other properties and nestling in beautiful rural countryside. It is well located for local amenities with the pretty towns of Tenbury Wells and Bromyard easily accessible. Approximately 15 miles to the north is the town of Ludlow, well known for its excellent restaurants. The Old Farmhouse is located equidistant from the cities of Worcester and Hereford, both of which provide extensive shopping and leisure facilities. There are some excellent schools in the locality to suit all requirements, both primary and secondary, and for the commuter there is access to the M5 at Junction 5, approximately 22 miles away and the nearest train station is located at Droitwich Spa with connections to Birmingham and London.
The Old Farmhouse is a beautifully presented Grade II Listed detached cottage, dating from the 17th century with exposed timber framework and a tiled roof. The property has been extremely well improved in recent years and now provides very versatile accommodation with many period features still evident including exposed beams, timber framework, wooden floors and doors together with open fireplaces in the dining room and sitting room.
On the ground floor the accommodation includes the well proportioned sitting room having a recessed fireplace and wood burning stove with a door leading to one side into a guest cloakroom. Across the front of the property, enjoying southerly views over the garden, are the dining room, an excellent entertaining room and also featuring a fireplace, which in turn leads through to the study which has extensive exposed timber framework. The study could be adapted to provide a fourth bedroom or other uses including as a playroom. At the rear of the property is a well fitted kitchen breakfast room with marble work tops, an extensive range of wooden wall and base units, together with a space for a range cooker. The boot room to one side houses the oil fired boiler.
On the first floor are 3 excellent bedrooms, all doubles, the principal bedroom having exposed wooden flooring with a range of bespoke wooden fitted wardrobes to one side. Centrally located off the landing is the recently modernised bathroom which features a roll top bath, large walk in shower cubicle and wall mounted heated towel rail.
Grounds and gardens
The property is accessed via the driveway which skirts around the outbuilding through to a gravelled parking area with the lawned garden slopping gently away to the south with wonderful open aspect. The garden is enclosed by a range of mature hedgerows and featuring a fine selection of specimen trees. The boundary to the drive is further enclosed by post and rail fence.
Adjacent to the driveway is the particularly useful and versatile outbuilding which features a central carport with parking for two cars with a useful stable to one side and, at the opposite end of the outbuilding, a large workshop behind which is the garden store.
