    About this property

    • St. Catherines Farm is an impressive and substantial family home which comprises two distinct sections, marrying an attractive period section featuring mellow local stone elevations with a handsome modern section with mellow brick elevations and Cotswold stone highlights.

      The farmhouse is set at the head of a courtyard that provides secure access, parking and storage together with ancillary accommodation and other versatile building usage. Beautiful gardens and attractive paddocks surround the buildings with multiple vantage points enjoying the impressive views together with Bredon Hill aspects.

      The farmhouse at 6923 sq ft provides flexible living over three levels which can accommodate a single family or multi-generational occupation. There is a distinct division between the new and old buildings that allows easy subdivision, or accommodation that can flow as one property.

      Highlights of the farmhouse accommodation include the substantial kitchen breakfast and family room with impressive bay window housing three French doors and enjoying elevated views. A fully vaulted reception hall and a run of attractive reception rooms with timber flooring all enjoying good natural light. At first floor level; impressive master bedroom suite with viewing and sitting area and a further selection of good sized further bedrooms and well finished bathrooms. At second floor level is the exciting entertainment space.

      The ancillary accommodation is set within the attractive courtyard and single storey period outbuildings. The guest barn consists of open plan living layout with bedroom and separate shower room. There is also a further games room and gym which has the potential to provide further ancillary residential accommodation.

      From Bredons Norton the property is accessed via a private lane which extends from Lampitt Lane. The driveway extends approximately 1000 meters to the entrance driveway point of the farm and a further stretch above. There is an enclosed courtyard accessed via electronic timber gates, a further parking courtyard with detached garage via twin timber
      gates and a gravelled driveway to the side of the courtyard. Beyond this driveway is a pedestrian track onto Bredon Hill.

      Beautiful gardens surround the farmhouse which are mainly laid to lawn with mature borders and an array of impressive tree species. A highlight of the garden is a natural wildlife pool with two jetties. The garden enjoys the enthralling elevated views with a mixture of dry stone walling and park fencing to garden boundaries. The farmhouse has extensive flagstone terracing surrounding the majority of its perimeter and worthy of note is a specific covered area for a substantial hot tub. St Catherines Farm owns paddocks to the front and back of the house which total approximately 13.1 acres. This useful land could be utilised for leisure purposes or animals.
