Stanbrook Grange is tucked away in a quiet and secluded location on the edge of the hill overlooking the popular village of Callow End, a particularly sought after village to the south west of Worcester. The village benefits from an excellent primary school, village shop and public houses. More extensive shopping and leisure facilities are to be found in the city of Worcester and Malvern, and further afield at Cheltenham. The area is extremely well provided for with a range of schools to suit most requirements, both state and private, including Kings School and RGS in Worcester and The Downs, Malvern College and Malvern St James in Malvern. For the commuter there is easy access to the M5 at Junction 7, providing routes to Birmingham in the north and London in the south. The nearest station is at Malvern Link, approximately 3 miles away.
Stanbrook Grange is a most impressive country house, originally dating from the 17th Century with Georgian extensions and then substantially extended remodelled and refurbished by the present owners in 2006. The end result is a perfect blend of attractive period features coupled with luxurious modern features making for a fabulous family home, a short walk from the centre of the village. The attention to detail throughout the property is exceptional with the use of replacement sash windows, beautifully fitted fireplaces and at the heart of the house, the most superb kitchen breakfast room with central island, range cooker and a glass topped well. To one side is a very high quality Rebate conservatory with underfloor heating. There are 3 superb principal reception rooms to the ground floor with a fine drawing room, having high ceilings and a beautifully fitted fireplace, sitting room/library with open fireplace, fitted with an extensive range of bookshelves and storage cupboards and, at the far end of the corridor, a large dining room, excellent for entertaining on a large scale. Stairs lead down to a basement family/games/media room which has underfloor heating and an external staircase, an invaluable room for any family.
To the first floor there is a generous landing with curved wall leading through to the generous master bedroom suite, having a double aspect with superb views and a door leading through to a sumptuous en-suite shower room combined with dressing room, having a wall of fitted wardrobes by Hammond. The 3 additional double bedrooms all have a superb aspect at the front of the property with views over Callow End, and are served by 2 bathrooms at either end of the landing. Other features of Stanbrook Grange include a central sound system with speakers fitted to the kitchen, drawing room, sitting room, study, master bedroom suite and also into the garden.
Located just beyond Stanbrook Grange is the detached Coach House, a beautifully converted two storey building serving as ancillary accommodation to the main house. It has been converted to a similarly high standard to the main house with a large entrance hall, sitting room/office and fitted kitchen to the ground floor. Stairs lead to the first floor with a large landing dressing room leading through to the double bedroom and to one side, the en-suite bathroom. Attached to the rear of the coach house is a large garden store for all the garden machinery.
Grounds and gardens
Stanbrook Grange is approached over a quiet lane from the village road, with a pair of wooden electric gates opening onto a private gravelled driveway which climbs up a gentle hill towards a gravelled parking area to the side of the main house. The gardens are an absolute delight and complement the property perfectly, primarily laid to lawn with an architecturally striking feature being the rill directly opposite the front door, flanked by lavender borders and drawing the eye through the garden to the views beyond. There are many seating areas around the property including a beautiful paved sunken terrace within the orchard, circular in shape and a wonderful area to contemplate the beautiful gardens around. On a raised bank beyond the Coach House is an extensively stocked rose garden featuring both shrub and climbing roses over an impressive pergola. Stone steps lead down to a lower lawn and throughout the garden there are mature trees interspersed. The main lawns are kept beautifully manicured by the Husqvarna Automower which is included in the sale. In all, the garden extends to about 1.08 acres (0.44 ha).
The adjoining land in our clients’ ownership, extending to approximately 12.6 acres, could be available by separate negotiation.
