    About this property

    • The Bell House forms part of the Abbey Manor Estate, an early 19th-century Gothic style country home now converted to separate dwellings. Retaining much of its original character, The Bell House is situated on the south-eastern elevation. Exceptionally charming, with outstanding original features to include ornate wood panelling, trussed ceilings, and tall mullioned windows. The house has been tastefully modernised throughout, with a sleek and stylish gloss kitchen featuring good storage and a range of appliances, plus contemporary bath and shower rooms, though it offers excellent scope for further personalisation by the new owner.

      The accommodation is spacious and bright, owing to the abundance of glazing which affords excellent natural light throughout. Of particular note is the double height sitting room and the separate vaulted orangey, which is ideal for large family gatherings. The reception hall, with its galleried landing and stone fireplace, provides a welcoming entrance. In addition there is a utility room and pantry, a bedroom/office with shower room on the ground floor together with a superb principal bedroom with dressing room and an attractive en suite . The second floor consists of two further bedrooms and a shower room.

      The property is approached via a sweeping gravel driveway which meanders through mature gardens to the rear of the property. There is extensive private parking and access to a double garage. To the rear there is a partially covered paved terrace with a stone fountain, which is wonderfully secluded and perfect for alfresco dining. The majority of the garden is situated to the side and front and is a wide, manicured lawn bordered by open grassland, with majestic far-reaching views towards the distant hills. There is a second gravel terrace, also inset with a fountain, to the front, perfect for enjoying the country vistas.

      In addition to the private garden there are approximately 35 acres of communal parkland and woodland, including lawns, a lily pond and tennis court available for residents' use. Within the grounds there is a stone obelisk, also Grade II listed under a separate listing, which was erected by the Rudge family to mark the loss of life in the 13th-century Battle of Evesham.
